YOUNT RIDGE CELLARS Proprietary Red Blend, Oakville

Sold Out. May we suggest another vintage?*

WHY WE LOVE IT:

  • 66% Cabernet Sauvignon, 24% Merlot, 10% Malbec
  • Estate, single vineyard organically farmed
  • Never ending finish; elegant and restrained

Inaugural release Proprietary Bordeaux blend from acclaimed winemaker Celia Welch. An intense reflection of Oakville terroir, single vineyard estate wines.

WINEMAKER: Legendary Celia Welch

WHAT WE TASTED: Magnificent garnet ruby color captures your eye and with a cigar and cocoa nose that says ‘stick around for a taste. Intense, unfolding layers of cassis, black cherry, licorice and violet; dense and chewy in balance with earthy tannins, acid and oak. Full bodied, round silkiness.

AVA DESIGNATED: Oakville, Napa Valley

 WHAT WE PAIRED:

  • Herb-crusted rack of lamb, homemade rice pilaf
  • Grilled Ribeye, garlic-buttermilk mashed potatoes
  • Chateaubriand, sauce bearnaise, potatoes Anna

PERSONALITY: The complexity of the vineyard shines through a progression of dark fruit, cherry, dusty cocoa, cool mint and more. Celia's extraordinary winemaking skills are on display. This vineyard is worthy of her talents.

    TECHNICAL:

    • Aged 20 months in 70% new French Oak
    • Each year will have a distinct varietal percentage.
