Taken Napa Valley Red Blend 2015
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
James SucklingDark plums, blackberries, licorice, chocolate, ripe stems, orange rind, hot stones, dust and coffee beans. Full-bodied with grippy tannins, some nice sweet-and-sour character, a fresh line of acidity and a medium chewy finish. A blend of cabernet sauvignon and merlot. Drink in 2020.
Wine EnthusiastA blend of 44% Cabernet Sauvignon, 28% Zinfandel, 15% Merlot and 13% Petite Sirah, this delivers soft, generous flavors of graham cracker, plum and blackberry. A framework of dusty tannins is counterbalanced by approachable lushness on the palate.
