This masterful blend drinks well above its price class and seems determined to make a play for the throne with its arresting aromas and bold flavors. Balance is a big factor, and lively fruit joins gentle oak alongside soft tannins and tangy acidity. The top-secret sources behind this blend would add up to an astronomical price point, but if you don’t need to know the pedigree to recognize greatness, this “pleasure-bent yet classic” blend will more than satisfy. Approachable and food-friendly now, this is a royally good offering from Grand Napa.
A juicy red with notes of blackcurrants and plums, baking spices and chocolate. Medium to full body. Polished tannins and succulent fruit make it easy to drink. Creamy and soft. Long finish with a touch of minerality. Better in a couple of years.
