Much more than a mouthful, this Pomerol-style red is a blend of 92% Merlot with 8% Cab Franc from estate vineyards in the Rutherford Hills. 2019 promises to rank among the best ever, and it is truly main course magic with The Bounty Burger.
The 2019 Amuse Bouche, a Right Bank-inspired Merlot/Cabernet Franc blend is superb. Expansive, sweet aromatics are immediately seductive. Silky tannins wrap around a core of plum fruit, sweet tobacco, chocolate, spice and leather. This wonderfully expressive, elegant Napa Valley red hits all the right notes in a mid-weight, nuanced style that is all class.
