The aromatic lift and dense fruit core of the 2014 Vintage of 2880, is the result of the perfect planting of three signature Rhone varieties: Grenache, Syrah & Petite Sirah in our tiny 1/3 acre Estate Vineyard in the northern tip of the legendary Napa Valley.
This artisan field blend provides for the red-fruited focus and purity of flavors found within. To complement and round out our composition we hunted down additional Petite Sirah from the historic Pocai Vineyard, sitting just North of the famous Three Palms Vineyard of Calistoga. The serpentine soils here bring inky goodness, blue fruit and tart cherries, which commingle with the red tones of our estate fruit to yield a wine that transcends.
In 2002, former teacher, former wine merchant and former wine importer/distributor, John-Kane-Hartnett, planted 300 vines in the backyard of his Napa Valley home. Today, the juice from those vines is the heart of 2880 Napa Valley Red Wine. When people ask his wife Betsy, “Why 2880?” she tells them, “It’s the number of minutes it took John to realize he didn’t want our second date to end.” John tells them, “It’s our address.” Either way, 2880 is a labor of love and a celebration of family and friends.
