2015 BLIND TASTING NAPA VALLEY PROPRIETARY RED

$39.99

This ultra-premium Zinfandel blend is always a crowd-favorite; because they’re brimming with lush fruits, attractive spice, deep, succulent flavors and when everything is in perfect balance, they’re completely irresistible.  A perfect example is the 2015 Blind Tasting… It has a core of Howell Mountain Zinfandel, amplified with ancient vine Petite Sirah, then ratcheted up even more with Cabernet Sauvignon from Spring Mountain.  Fans of The Prisoner Red and Venge’s Scout’s Honor should not miss this wine and if you haven’t experienced a California Style Red blend, here’s a great opportunity to do so, but don’t wait too long because there were only 6 barrels produced.

The 2015 vintage lights up your palate with penetrating red and black fruits that come interwoven with wild rose, Mountain blueberries, lush fruit and a super smooth finish.  A deeply powerful wine with focused intensity that’s perfectly balanced by finely grained tannins.  I strongly recommend you jump at the chance to secure a couple cases at this Inventory Reduction price — one of my favorites in the warehouse right now, and I’m shocked we are giving it away at this price… please stock-up at $28/btl + Free Shipping on 6-packs, cases, and 15-packs… GET TWO 15-PACKS for 2020.

2015 BLIND TASTING NAPA VALLEY PROPRIETARY RED

Tasting Notes From Master Sommelier: “Alluring aromas of ripe blackberries, red plums, sweet floral notes and a touch of vanilla spice seduce your nose. A compact core of perfectly balanced cherry preserves, muddled blueberries, wild blackberries and a touch of black pepper unfurl and expand across your palate. Opulent without being inky, the supple fruit tannins combine with a very long finish to simply make you smile. Drink right now, or you can hold until 2025.” Kevin M. Vogt 94 Points

Ed’s Notes: What is a Blind Tasting? We often taste wines “blind” in Napa to test our palate, and expand upon terroir comprehension. If we taste a wine blind, it helps us to understand the wine or varietal without knowing much more about the Label or Producer or Winery… it allows a fairness of quantitative perspective. We simply place a solid, brown bag among a group of wines, and then label them #1, #2, #3, etc. After we taste in silence, we then compare notes and evaluations, and then finally reveal the Wines that were bagged… it’s quite fun, and I highly recommend entertaining with a Blind Tasting Party. Invite your guests to enjoy wines “blind” not knowing what each wine is, and then write down your favorites… I personally love blind tasting Vertical Vintages (for example: 2013,2014, 2015) of the same wine from a Single Producer. It’s a lot more fun when it’s not silent, however if you really want to understand a wine, try blind tasting in a completely dark room, no sounds, and close your eyes for a second and Visualize… harmonize your world-class palate into tasting sensations… you may be surprised what you discover!

Ed’s Tasting Notes: “With fruit sourced from Howell Mountain and Spring Mountain, this is a shocking value. The 2015 Blind Tasting rendering of a Napa Valley blend is within that same Tasting Palate Perspective of Scouts Honor and Prisoner… in fact, it’s a very similar blend, but I believe with much better fruit. In my humble opinion, this wine hands-down beats any vintage of Scout’s Honor, and any bottle of Prisoner… How about we Blind Taste them all together? Same style, but bigger, better, smoother, and not too sweet… a perfect balance of lush fruit with a smooth finish. This wine will only get better in a year or two, and most likely start peaking in 2024. Enjoy now and within the next 3-4 years…if you can wait that long. I’m drinking right now, actually tonight with BBQ Ribs, and it’s sensational!” Ed Stephanick 96+ Points
