ARRIÈRE Red Blend, Napa

Regular price $39.00

WHY WE LOVE IT:

  • Inaugural second label of Webster Cellars 
  • Striking aromas and powerful finish on this Merlot and Syrah Red Blend 
  • Webster Cellars reds sell out on release. Get in!

WINEMAKER: Keith and Chelli Webster, Webster Cellars

WHAT WE TASTED: An exciting wine, spicy, subtle, and lean. Spicy with pepper, licorice and clove. Subtle showing notes of cassis, tobacco, mild cherries, blackberry and just a hint of cacao. Soft entry, the mid-palate satisfying, and the finish is elegant. 

AVA DESIGNATED: Coombsville and Stags Leap, Napa Valley

WHAT WE PAIRED:

  • Seared herb-crusted pork loin, grilled spring onions, balsamic reduction
  • Grilled ribeye steaks, blue cheese mashed potatoes
  • Portobello mushroom burgers, sautéed kale, swiss cheese

PERSONALITY: The label is an original art piece that Keith Webster painted during his time as a New York artist. He is a multifaceted man. This project was about expressing Keith and Chelli’s mutual creativity by combining the two mediums together.

TECHNICAL: 

  • 60% Merlot 40% Syrah 
  • Napa Valley and Sonoma fruit, farmed in small lots
  • Cellared 18 months in French Oak
