Italics 2013 Sixteen Appellations Napa Valley Meritage
A balanced fusion of red and dark fruits, full of red currant, blueberry, tobacco and light leather. Hints of subtle earth compliment the fruit components without overpowering them. An allover voluminous rich mouth feel...very comfortable. The year allowed for riper growing conditions and the addition of the warmest growing region, Calistoga, shows in the wine.
