2018 GRAND NAPA MASTER RED, NAPA VALLEY BLEND

$90.00

Grand Napa Vineyards in Rutherford produces wine in an approachable style that’s keenly balanced, richly textured, and without hard edges. They seek vineyards that produce concentrated fruit, naturally balanced by elegant tannins. Their Master Red combines grapes from both warm and cool parts of the Napa Valley and harmoniously balances fruit, acid, and structure, tying it all in with soft, velvety tannins.

Dwight Bonewell, the winemaker at Grand Napa, keeps a black book of secret vineyard sources, and he created his 2018 Master Red from top sites in Coombsville and Saint Helena. His 2018 combines 55% Cabernet Sauvignon with nearly equal parts Malbec and Merlot.

2018 was a faultless growing season, virtually uninterrupted by significant heat spikes, providing a prolonged hang-time and allowing the fruit to accumulate intense flavor and complexity. Grand Napa’s 2018 Master Red envelopes your palate in a blanket of red and black fruits, crushed flowers, black coffee, and soft, velvety tannins.

2018 GRAND NAPA MASTER RED, NAPA VALLEY BLEND

Tasting Notes from From Jeb Dunnuck, “Loads of black cherries, currants, tobacco leaf, chocolate, and spring flower notes emerge from the 2018 Master Red. A medium to full-bodied, lightly textured blend with integrated tannins and a clean, classy finish, I’d be thrilled to drink bottles any time over the coming 10-15 years.” JEB DUNNUCK 92 POINTS

Tasting Notes from James Suckling, “Savory aromas of dried mushroom and oyster shell on the nose, layered with dried blackcurrant and tobacco. It’s medium- to full-bodied with sleek, integrated tannins. Flavorful with a juicy, savory finish. Try from 2021.” JAMES SUCKLING 92 POINTS
