2016 Addax Proprietary Red Wine Napa Valley

$184.95

This BOMBSHELL greets you at the rim of the glass with intoxicating black truffle and candy cap mushroom aromas, blackcurrant juice, and blackberry jam. This is just incredible wine, comprised of 65% Merlot from Sugarloaf Vineyard and 35% Cabernet Sauvignon from Tench, just a nine-iron from Screaming Eagle. Russell’s nickname for this wine is delightfully NSFW, so we can only paraphrase. Suffice it to say that this is a wine of alluring sensuality and abandon. You can only see for yourself...

Addax is a project from two wine-loving buddies, Brian Kearney and Josh Peeples, and they chose Russell Bevan to be their winemaker. This is a brand to watch, with many more great wines in the pipeline! It’s hard to believe that this little winery is already in their 10th vintage, and just now starting to creep into the forward radar of the press and the public.
