2009 6Y Napa Valley Red Blend
California: Napa Valley
Red is the new Sexy
Today’s Topel Winery 2009 6Y Napa Valley Red Blend is a very 6Y (sexy) wine, indeed! And very highly recommended.
Elegant and bursting with flavor, this wine delivers the sultry elegance of a classic, big-time, Napa Valley Cabernet. This is a very carefully crafted wine, the stikes a wonderful balance of fruit, earth and spice on the palate and on the nose.
This delicious Napa Valley blend is perfect for a night in front of the fire… spent with that special sexy someone.
Dark purple hues through a slightly darker, slightly opaque core.
Dark blackberry and blueberry combine with stewed plum, cassis and black cherry. A hint of spice adds intrigue and rounding to the vibrant nose.
Bold red cherry, cassis, dark raspberry, cranberry and blackberry meld with subtle baking spice, bakers chocolate and a hint of slate mineral.
Very long, rich and robust with dark fruit flavors that tail off into subtle mineral as the palate slowly drys.
Very flexible, but we’d recommend that you pair this wine with something rich, like a leg of lamb with rosemary. Serve with garlic red potatoes, apple sauce and reduced cranberries.
