Blend 27 brings together Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot and Merlot for an elegant Bordeaux style blend.

Bending the traditional rules of Napa Valley, this unique winery places an emphasis on sourcing and harvesting grapes from dozens of high-quality terroirs, then selecting and blending only the best lots with an equal emphasis on creativity and personal care. Throw in gunslinging winemaker Kirk Venge, and you'll start to understand why this juggernaut has garnered the sort of attention that the major critics have given them. Continually walking the line between honoring traditions and techniques of the past and a contemporary artistic blending approach, their wines showcase the unique synergy of combining fruit from all over Napa Valley. The proprietors of B cellars are understandably pleased with what's been happening with their baby, and by the looks of it, this kid is growing up right before our eyes!
Composed of 50% Merlot, 32% Cabernet Sauvignon and 18% Malbec, the 2018 Blend 27 has a deep garnet-purple color and flamboyant notions of crème de cassis, stewed plums and boysenberries with suggestions of espresso, tar, licorice and Sichuan pepper plus a waft of cedar. Full-bodied, concentrated and richly fruited in the mouth, it has a great foundation of ripe, rounded tannins and seamless freshness, finishing long and spicy.
