Maldonado Propietary Red Napa Valley - 750 ml
The Maldonado’s have been farming some of Napa Valley’s top vineyards for decades. Spending that much time in the vineyard, they have a clear advantage when it comes to selecting fruit for their own wine, choosing when to pick, and knowing exactly what’s needed in the vineyard to get the results they want. A perfect example of this is the 2014 Maldonado Proprietary Red which has a dense core of fruit, profound aromatics, and is made in a brawny, well-structured style that showers your palate with immediate enjoyment. At under forty per bottle, this one is guaranteed to bring a smile to your face too.
With the Cabernet Sauvignon sourced from Oakville and Syrah and Merlot sourced from the family’s Los Olivos Vineyard in Southern Napa Valley, this blend of nearly 2/3 Cabernet Sauvignon is perfectly balanced and brilliantly complex. Entering from one of Napa Valley’s greatest vintages, the 2014 was aged for 18 months in French oak barrels and offers substantial value. It’s clear that the Maldonado’s have taken much of that same dedication that led them to become highly sought after growers, and put it into their own winemaking as well…
