MAGNUS The Bravado Merlot, Napa Valley

Regular price $44.00

Complementary shipping

WHY WE LOVE IT:

  • Inaugural Release, vineyard designated wine—Exclusive to Travelfood
  • Broken Rock Vineyard on Soda Canyon Road at the base of Atlas Peak, is highly sought out for its “Cab like” quality
  • This is Merlot cross dressing across the pond from France. Incredible.
  • Gold Medal American Fine Wine Competition

WINEMAKER: Jacqueline Yoakum. Consulting winemaker Italics, Buhman, Greggarious. Alumni of Littorai, Schramsberg, Keller, Stags Leap Wine Cellars.

WHAT WE TASTED: Blown away by candied violets, strawberry and cranberry all over in this lively, vibrant wine. Seamless oak. Rich and full, have your stuffing with meat! You might think it’s a Cab if we didn’t tell you. William Hill' property rocks it.

AVA DESIGNATED: Napa Valley

WHAT WE PAIRED:

  • Chef Doug's Chocolate Lava Cake with Chocolate Truffle
  • Pappardelle with Rabbit Ragu sauce
  • Roast Lamb Shanks with sautéed mixed greens

PERSONALITY:  Magnus is a new brand that is the embodiment of an “alter ego.”  Where we see dragons, the little girl inside with a cape and mask is making it all happen. Try it. You’ll discover powerful dragons. And the pleasures of a vineyard's complexity revealing the magic of wildcrafted wines.

TECHNICAL: 

  • Only 200 cases made
  • 15.1% Alcohol
  • 75% New French Oak (St. Martin)
