The 2014 King’s Row remains an expression of the Aurora Vineyard. Charming and appealing, 2014 King’s Row suggests aromas of Bing cherry, raspberry and fresh blackberries entwined with baking spice. These warm fruit notes are layered with toasty chocolate and vanilla bean in a wine that’s full bodied and structured with approachable tannins. 2014 Kings Row finishes with a lengthy and lively impression of this exceptional vineyard.
Checkerboard Vineyards is located on the southeast facing slope of Diamond Mountain in Napa Valley. The estate includes a winery, cave and four vineyard sites, joined by a two-and-one-half mile drive spanning the valley floor to the top of the ridge. This dramatic setting is the inspiration for the distinctive, exceptional wines of Checkerboard Vineyards.
The winery is dedicated solely to the vinification of Checkerboard Vineyards wines and was built to control every aspect of winemaking.
Eight custom Taransaud French Oak Upright Casks are used to create numerous, small lots of wine from micro-harvests of each vineyard.
