2016 RAPP RANCH CUTTERS RESERVE PROPRIETARY RED

$69.99

Tasting Notes: This robust 2016 Rapp Ranch Napa Valley Reserve red blend is uniquely driven by the Coombsville AVA terroir. Composed mostly by the uncommon varietal Petit Verdot, with Cabernet Sauvignon being the dominant second varietal showcased in the blend. Enticing aromas of sweet pipe tobacco, brown sugar and orange spice invite you to take a sip. A boldly structured palate provides flavors of boysenberry, raspberry, blackberries, vanilla, cardamom, and plum. This BIG and showy wine has voluptuous tannins from start to the long lingering finish”

Recently Nominated for the Best Boutique Winery in Napa Valley — I HIGHLY Recommend at least a 6-pack of this amazingly plush red wine. Big, Bold, and Beautiful Blend. Cheers!

Description

2016 RAPP RANCH CUTTERS RESERVE PROPRIETARY RED, COOMBSVILLE NAPA VALLEY

 

THE RAPP RANCH STORY: The property now known as Shadybrook Estate Winery at Rapp Ranch has undergone several remarkable transformations.  The history of Rapp Ranch is rich in horses. Originally known as the premier breeding & training grounds for quarter horses in the Napa Valley, this property located in the heart of Coombsville, became world renown throughout the 1980s and 1990s.  Utilizing a variety of barns, riding arenas and outdoor spaces, Rapp Ranch produced some of the top award winning international competitors.  Continuing on to present day, the name Rapp Ranch has became synonymous with outstanding quality.

The property eventually sold to a Dream Seeker who removed some of the horse facilities and planted 12 of the 25 acres of ultra premium Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley grapes.  This same owner, being far more interested in the wine business than horses, undertook building a winery facility, a commercial kitchen, an indoor tasting room, and outdoor tasting patio. Cheers to Dream Seekers!

When the opportunity presented itself, the Alkossers purchased the property in February 2016.  Thoroughly enchanted by the beauty and significance of this place, they saw the potential in combining the history of the horse ranch, the premium vineyards and the state-of- the-art winery into the ultimate destination for wine connoisseurs and adventuring travelers. They also host some Killer events!
