2019 Branta

Regular price $69.00

With this bottling, Goosecross winemaker Bill Nancarrow brought together four varietals into a sensuous, fruit-driven wine. Each component was made and aged separately before being masterfully blended into one of the most integrated and complex wines. The Petite Sirah provides plenty of bravado and power, the Malbec contributes blue fruit and black tea, while the Syrah chimes in with black pepper and hints of tobacco leaf.  Zinfandel  is added to lend a spicy lushness to the blend.

The story

Goosecross is a winery in Yountville, located in Napa Valley, with a history spanning four decades. Currently owned by Christi and Dave Ficeli, who developed their passion for wine while working with a different winery in Modesto, California, they eventually realized their dream of owning a family winery. Despite career diversions, their ambition to establish roots in Napa Valley led them back to Goosecross, reflecting their deep connection to the region.

The winery maintains its long legacy in Napa Valley, focusing on hospitality and the traditional values of winemaking. Christi and Dave, alongside winemaker Bill Nancarrow, produce distinct, vineyard-driven wines, reflecting a balance between land and winery. Their approach combines traditional winemaking with modern techniques.

Goosecross offers a unique experience where farming, vine cultivation, and winemaking meet hospitality. The Tasting Room and Deck provide a serene setting for visitors to enjoy the wines and the picturesque Napa Valley, blending rural charm with contemporary quality and hospitality.
