2011 Red Wine Napa Valley

2011 Red Wine Napa Valley

"The 2011 Red Wine is our tribute to Right Bank Bordeaux-style red wines, such as Pomerol. Both the aromas and flavors express lovely black fruits, with subtle, integrated toasty oak notes adding layers of complexity and refinement to the wine’s profile. This polished, balanced wine should drink well for seven or more years."

- Kian Tavakoli, Winemaker

In keeping with Right Bank tradition, Merlot makes up the majority of this offering. Sourced from Tourmaline Vineyards in the Coombsville AVA, the Merlot gives the wine its lush and elegant mouthfeel, and wonderful layers of rich cherry and black fruit. Winemaker Kian Tavakoli added Cabernet Sauvignon for its structure and long, rich finish; Malbec for its floral aroma and dark fruit flavors; and a touch of Petit Verdot for color depth and a tannin anchor.

The PATEL 2011 Red Wine can be enjoyed in its youth (we suggest decanting an hour or so before), but cellaring it for a few years will allow the wine to reach optimum maturity and expression.
