2007 Prix Reserve Mélange
Red Table Wine, Napa Valley
Red Table Wine. Blend. Melange. This wine is beautiful no matter what you call it. Our Prix Melange is a blend straight and simple. But that is where the simplicity of this wine ends. Melange is made up of the best wines, the best barrels, of the year meticulously melded by owner and winemaker Ernie Weir to highlight and showcase the symphony and wonderful harmony varietals can make when intermingled correctly.
Our 2007 Melange had aromas of violet, licorice, blackberry brambles, a hint of mint and beautifully balanced oak. Its nose is luscious and brooding and contemplative. It makes one want to take the pose of Rodin’s Thinker to ponder and savor. On the palate this deep red is rich and intense with round soft tannins. The juicy succulent fruit is balanced with deep earth and soft oak and leaves you with a sleek and lingering flavor. This wine is mature and lovely now and will also last for years to come.
