WINERY NOTES



Our Story: Husband and wife team Krys and Randy Wulff have been growing premium grapes in Napa Valley for over 20 years, selling to many well-known wineries such as Lewis, Robert Mondavi and The Prisoner. The Wulffs hand select areas in their estate vineyards from which they make their own signature wines under the LOBO label, the Spanish word for “wolf.”



Vineyard: This wine is made from 100% estate grown fruit in the Atlas Peak appellation of Napa Valley. The vineyard is a classic rocky, volcanic hillside at 1,350’ elevation. Close row planting produces lower yields, but grapes with rich and concentrated flavors.



Winemaker Notes: Victoria Coleman, a rising star who makes all of LOBO’s red wines, has returned to Napa after a stint at Chateau Mouton Rothschild. The estate-grown fruit is all hand-harvested, cold soaked on skins and then aged for 18 months in 60% new French Oak primarily from Baron, Taransaud, Seguin Moreau, Saury and Boutes. It is blended with merlot and petit verdot from the same estate vineyard for balance and complexity.



Tasting Notes: Aroma: Cassis, dark chocolate and hints of violets. Mouthfeel: Polished entry with fine, satiny tannins, balance and elegance. Long finish. Flavors: Ripe blackberry, blueberry and dark currant
