2018 Collectors Cuvée, Napa Valley

This cuvee is created especially for our Collectors Club Members and is a special blend of our favorite varietals in Napa Valley. Led by Merlot, this wine bursts out of the glass with aromas of blackberry pie filling. The palate finished smoothly with ripe plum and vanilla. Pair it with roasted duck, stewed eggplant, and earthy wild mushrooms.
About

FROM THE WINEMAKER

“In honor of our Collectors Club Members, some of whom have been Members for more than a decade, our exclusive Collectors Cuvée is a unique wine. In vintage 2019, Merlot leads the blend with Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot are layered in to create the perfect harmony. This supple and bold wine is deep in color and offers aromas of black fruit, graphite, black pepper and baking spices. Full, fine-grained tannins marry with flavors of ripe plum, black cherry and vanilla for an elegant finish.”

– Stephanie Pope, Winemaker
