The only thing not mirrored is the high price tag… Upon entry the STEPS Reserve Blend penetrates your taste buds with dreamlike intensity and all of the scrumptiously thrilling qualities and unforgettable flavors and aromas that make Steps Reserve so wondrous.

The 2017 STEPS RESERVE was built around a solid core of Mountain fruit, and even includes a barrel of Howell Mountain Cabernet which lends to this wines power and depth, which is a hallmark of Steps.  On the palate the wine oozes with hedonistic flavors, including ripe blackberries, black chocolates, plum and roasted espresso. This is one of the Best Napa Valley Red Wines of 2017 under $50/btl, and compares to $100/btl.

Tasting Notes: “The 2017 Steps Barrel Select begins with a pungent, ripe nose of blueberry syrup, cassis, blackberries, vanilla spice, crushed stone, espresso roast, along with a distinct, seductive savory component.  The palate explodes with muddled blackberries, fresh black cherries, cocoa powder and earthy minerals along with dusty tannins, all culminating in a long, decadent finish.  Drink now until 2028.” 100 Cases Produced
