Bootleg Napa Valley Red Blend 2015

$34.99

90 Points - New Discovery                         The Bootleg 2015 Red is a fantastic new wine that fans of red blends like The Prisoner will love. Highly recommended while it's still available. 90 Points Robert Parker: "The 2015 Red Blend is made up of 53% Merlot, 21% Petite Sirah, 20% Syrah, 4% Cabernet Sauvignon, 1% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot, aged 20 months in 28% new French oak and 2% new American oak. Deep garnet-purple colored, baked plums, warm blackberries and Black Forest cake springs from the glass with touches of Chinese five spice, dusty soil and garrigue with a touch of black tea. Full, rich and with an approachable chewy texture, it has great freshness and a long earthy finish." Bootleg Red Blend is opulent, plush, and luscious with red and black fruit, soft tannins and velvety texture. In crafting Bootleg, winemaker Brian Kosi's intent was to make a big, luscious red blend with loads of dark fruit and power. He used Merlot from Stagecoach Vineyard to serve as the base due to its upfront red fruit and soft tannins that make this wine approachable early on. Combined, the other varietals add structure, depth and richness that bring this blend together.

Big bold red blend. Deep rich purple in color. Nice fruit and tannins. Naps Valley wine. Great with steak or just by itself.
