Purple Heart Napa Valley Red Wine 2015
|Region||California, Sonoma County|
This blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon was made as a dedication to the bravery of our men and women in the military. It is a joint project of Ray Coursen, a Vietnam veteran, and David Grega, a veteran of Iraq. This is a delicious, fruit-driven wine with red and black fruits, some spice, medium to full body, easygoing tannins, and a fleshy mouthfeel and finish. Drink it over the next 7-8 years.
A fruity style, with red berry flavors that are fresh and engaging. Balsa wood and cedar accents show on the finish. Merlot, Zinfandel, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc. Drink now. 23,800 cases made.
Led by 67% Merlot, this also includes 19% Zinfandel, 8% Petit Verdot and 6% Cabernet Franc. Approachable and thickly concentrated, it offers a generous helping of fruity blackberry and cherry with toasted oak.
