Quilt Fabric of the Land Red Blend 2017
An intoxicating blend of Petite Sirah, Merlot, Zinfandel and Petit Verdot, this Wagner family red is crimson red in color with plum highlights. Expressive aromas of blackberry, dark chocolate, and lightly toasted almonds with a hint of spices and vanilla. Complex flavors of ripe black cherry, cocoa, and hints of rosemary. Well balanced with a velvety mouthfeel, vibrant fruit, and soft tannins. Pair with skirt steak with chimichurri sauce, potato gnocchi with pork and wild mushroom ragu, pad thai, or a savory cheese and charcuterie board.
For the Napa Valley Quilt Fabric of the Land Red Wine, Joe Wagner works with grapes representing the diversity of varietals cultivated in the Napa Valley AVA. He sources Petite Sirah, Merlot, Zinfandel, and Petit Verdot grapes from a spectrum of Napa Valley proper; from Oak Knoll in the South to Calistoga in the North. The result of blending these diverse varietals and regions yields wines of extraordinary concentration of flavor, color, and texture. While the majority of the fruit comes from the valley floor, he also relies on grapes grown on the foot-slopes to achieve the texture & grip he desires.
