and Petite Sirah

Winemaker Niki Williams is focused on creating a red blend that expresses the lush, rich and expressive flavors from select vineyard sites throughout Napa Valley. The name is derived from two distinct soil series, Forward and Kidd, and pays homage to the over 100 soil variations that contribute to the depth and character of wines from this region.
