2016 Napa Valley
From its alluring deep garnet to its engaging aromas of wild blackberry, cocoa, and dried sage, the wine is endowed with refinement and definition by sourcing from first-rate sites within the region. A core of succulent dark plum and black currant envelope the palate with delineated accents of lavender, tobacco and crushed graphite that hold through the long finish across fine-grained tannins and balanced acidity. Lovely with aged goat milk cheese and jamón ibérico or classic beef bourguignon. Serve at 50°-55° F.
