Yount Ridge Proprietary Red Blend Napa Valley 2017
Proprietary Blends | US
Over 50% OFF a luscious blend of cabernet sauvignon and other Bordeaux grapes – all lovingly crafted by the legendary Celia Welch! This is absolutely pristine fruit from the heart of Oakville and is not to be missed!
Perfectly located in the southern part of the Oakville appellation (bordering Highway 29) in a coveted vineyard neighborhood – next to Cardinale, across from Far Niente, and near the Morlet Family-owned Coeur de Vallée Vineyard, among others is where you’ll find the closely guarded secret that is Yount Ridge. Celia Welch – one of Napa’s top winemakers, most notable for her work with the iconic Scarecrow wines – has been making these wines for years. If you knew nothing else about this wine, that would be enough. But the price! This is quite the duo for UNDER $50!
Drinks like $100+, easy. So DARK, mysterious, percolating with uber-rich scents and flavors of wild boysenberries, figs, mocha, and black cherry. Big, structured, deep, and mouth coating for sure. The exact blend is a mystery – but typically, in prior vintages, there is about 90% cabernet sauvignon, and then a hunk of petit verdot – the structure, the intensity, the deep, ripe berry notes… it must be! But also the chocolate-dipped plum of merlot, the floral spicy note of cabernet franc… just a myriad tapestry of classic Napa Valley flavors!
53% OFF – on an Oakville, cabernet-sauvignon dominant red blend...we’re just gobsmacked to have a deal like this. Ok, that’s all we’re gonna say...if you know, you know!
