Bruce Wayne Winery
2011 Ella's Blend Napa Valley Red Wine
California: Napa Valley
It's a dog-drink-wine world
The Bruce Wayne Winery is the sister label of one of our long-standing favorites, the Starry Night Winery. The Bruce Wayne wines are made to provide an extraordinary drinking experience at a budget-friendly price. Today’s delicious blend delivers on this promise - and then some.
Today’s Bruce Wayne Winery 2011 Ella’s Blend Napa Valley Red Wine drinks like a high-dollar red blend. This blend of Bordeaux varietals hails from what is arguably the best Bordeaux-growing region in California: the Napa Valley.
This highly recommended wine is drinking very well now, and we expect it to continue to improve over the next few years.
Pure, translucent garnet, from the slightly opaque core to the glinting edges.
Concentrated sweet cherry and blackberry, dried sage, darkest unsweetened chocolate, and sweet tobacco leaf.
Blueberry and blackberry compote along with black cherry, English breakfast tea, and a hint of cardamom.
Slightly drying, with well integrated tannins and flavors of tart plum skin and black tea. Lingers, especially at the edges of the palate.
We’d love to pair this delightful red blend with a classic beef stew brimming with carrots, potatoes, and onions. If Ella were still around, we imagine that she might like a hearty portion in her dog bowl.
