FLAVOR PROFILE
The level of flavor, color and intensity in the fruit from the Profile Estate Vineyard is truly exceptional. With 2014 being a warm vintage, it was important for us to not over-expose the fruit and make sure to pick before any late season hot weather. This allowed us to preserve the freshness and intensity of the fruit. Once in the cellar, the fruit impressed us with its freshness and balance. Fermentations were healthy and the result is a wine of great depth and elegance. The oak is well integrated featuring supple, very fine grain tannins. Decant this wine in its youth; it will reach a nice level of complexity 8-10 years from vintage, and with proper cellaring its depth and very fine tannins will continue to develop over the next 10+ years.

Terroir/Vinification

PROFILE NAPA VALLEY RED WINE
Our iconic Profile proprietary red wine represents the pinnacle of our family’s vineyards and winemaking. Precisely crafted using a single lot approach, this limited-production wine epitomizes the Schlatter Family’s unwavering dedication to quality. Profile is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc, sourced from the steep slopes of our Profile Estate Vineyard at the eastern edge of the St. Helena AVA. The grapes are hand-picked, hand sorted and vinified to capture the unique elegance of our estate terroir. This wine is distinguished by its intensity, refinement, and balance—eminently approachable at release, but with the structure to reward additional evolution in the cellar.
