Description Build A Case!
KELLY FLEMING WINES was launched in 1998 with the purchase of a 300 acre parcel of land on Pickett Road in the Napa Valley sub appellation of Calistoga. There was never any question of what to plant here. This is Cabernet Sauvignon country. The first vines, a total of eight acres, went into the ground in 1999. Six years later another four were developed, with no plans for additional plantings on this largely wild tract of land. The site, which was selected for its soils is nestled between two scenic canyons on a craggy slope at the northern end of the property the land had no history of vines, but neighbors include Araujo, Frediani, Hundred Acre, Kenefick, and Fisher.

The first vintage (2002) was released in the spring of 2005 and in June of 2010 KELLY FLEMING WINES celebrated the opening of an estate winery facility on Pickett Road, adjacent to the 12 acre vineyard. Kelly's exquisite taste and eye for detail can be seen in every aspect of the company she has built from the ground up, personally overseeing everything from site selection and facility design, to label development, farming decisions, and use permits

TASTING NOTES: The 2013 Big Pour is a wine that encapsulates the best of what Napa Valley has to offer. It is incredibly fragrant, offering luscious notes of Maraschino cherry, red licorice, fraise de bois and clove scented citrus. Secondary aromatics spur further interest with notes like tobacco box, cinnamon spice, black tea and toasted pecan. The palate, equally enticing, presents a round coating quality on entry, followed by fine, velvety tannins on the finish. Core flavors of candied cherry, black licorice and Campari are enveloped by warm, delicious notes of baking spices and dark chocolate. The wine is powerful and robust, yet feminine and vibrant, all at once.
