2014 Napa Valley Proprietary Red
California: Napa Valley
Today’s budget-priced Apriori Cellar 2014 Napa Valley Red Blend was a hit at our recent tasting panel.
This wine - from the sister label of Vice Versa (whose wines sell for $175 or more) - is well balanced, with fruit, earth and spice that all add up to an intriguing drinking experience.
Aromas jump from the glass, with bold Cherry, mixed brown spice, cedar, plum, raspberry juice, loamy earth, oak and a hint of dark chocolate.
Balanced on the palate, too, with earth and fruit and spice all melding together to drive flavors of black cherry, baker’s chocolate, dark spice, cigar box, flint and cigar box all across the palate.
At this price, today’s wine is selling fast. Please hurry to secure your case of this delicious, very highly recommended Napa red blend.
Darkest maroon hues, with bright cherry red edges.
Cherry, mixed brown spice, cedar, plum, raspberry juice, loamy earth, oak, and a hint of dark chocolate.
Black cherry, baker’s chocolate, dark spice, cigar box, flint and cigar box all across the palate.
Finishes long, with dark fruits fading, to be left with an extended spiced earthiness that seems to go on for a very long time. Chewy tannins add intriguing structure.
Grilled meats, spaghetti, or a big, juicy burger are all recommended with this hearty, but flexible wine.
