2009 Prix Reserve Mèlange
Red Table Wine, Napa Valley
Our 2009 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.
