Product description

Blended from 17 blocks spanning four ridges of volcanic Conn Valley hillsides, our estate grown Profile Red Wine is consistently one of the finest wines produced in the Napa Valley, and the 2017 vintage is no exception. Elegant and powerful, structured and soft, the wine defies typical categorization as it exhibits the best characteristics of the Profile Estate Vineyard—savory aromatics, dark fruit, evolving flavors, plush mouthfeel, bright acidity, and a long, world class finish. While bright and powerful at release, the wine will continue to mature for the next 30 years and will be tremendously enjoyable throughout its evolution.

94 Points - Jeb Dunnuck     A terroir selection, the flagship 2017 Profile offers a classic nose of ripe blackcurrants, scorched earth, tobacco, cedar, and dried spices. This carries to an elegant, beautifully balanced 2017 with plenty of mid-palate depth, building yet polished tannins, and a great finish. It's a classic, more savory, nuanced 2017 that will evolve for two decades.

93 Points - James Suckling     Grilled plum, sage, coffee and burnt-orange aromas here. It’s full-bodied with firm, fine-grained tannins. Chewy and flavorful. Better from 2021.

92 Points - Wine Enthusiast     This is an estate-grown blend led by Cabernet Sauvignon that was given 23 months in French oak, 80% of it new. Thick and powerfully muscular, it offers hearty, full-bodied layers of leather, gunsmoke and black currant, with well-integrated tannin and oak. It is both complex and immensely appealing.
