2016 YOUNT RIDGE PROPRIETARY RED WINE, NAPA VALLEY
by Legendary Winemaker Celia Welch
Tasting Notes from Winemaker Celia Welch, “Exotic, perfumed and complex with curing spice and intense notes of dark chocolate, mocha, and raspberry. Cocoa powder entry with blackberry, exotic and woodsy notes. Spicy, medium – full bodied blend is nicely balanced between fine grained, espresso lined tannins. Will drink beautifully for a decade.” 250 Cases Produced
The 2016 vintage was a star at our recent tasting, and it’s a blend of 4 of the top 5 Bordeaux varieties; Petite Verdot, Merlot, Malbec, and Cabernet Sauvignon. They housed the wine for 20 months in oak, and this wine is coming up on two years in the bottle at this point. It’s absolutely rocking now and will age for another decade.
