2013 Rocca 'Vespera' Proprietary Red Napa Valley
More From Rocca:
"Vespera," Latin for the evening, or a time to gather with family and friends, is a fitting name for this inviting Cabernet-Syrah blend from Rocca, in their characteristically rich but not excessive style. Parker flipped for it, saying
" A deep, dark ruby/purple color, loads of blackberry, roasted meat, Mediterranean lavender and licorice are all present in this full-bodied, complex and sexy wine. This is by far the most nuanced and multifaceted of the Rocca wines, but also the most drinkable. Soft tannins, low acidity and a big, fat, fleshy, meaty Syrah working beautifully with the Cabernet Sauvignon -- this is a stunner and a great example of an intelligent blend."
This is also a superb value for such high-quality Yountville and Coombsville fruit!

The wines of Napa Valley dentist-turned-vigneronne Mary Rocca and her gifted winemaker Paul Colantuoni deserve far greater renown. Paul is an alum of Mondavi, Neyers, Vieux Telegraphe in Châteauneuf-du-Pape, and Brancaia in Tuscany. He has a deft touch, weaving depth, complexity, and sweet fruit while skillfully walking the tightrope safely over the soupy depths of over-ripeness.About Rocca
