WHY WE LOVE IT:

  • 94% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Merlot, 1% Malbec
  • Estate, single vineyard organically farmed
  • A testament to age worthiness and extraordinary vineyard

Library release Proprietary Red Blend from acclaimed winemaker Celia Welch. An intense reflection of Oakville terroir, single vineyard estate wines.

WINEMAKER: The legendary Celia Welch

WHAT WE TASTED: Lovely bright cherry, leathery, tea leaf, floral and dusty briary notes. Soft and supple. With more then 10 years of age, this one is like a elegant river of silky soft cherry, with not much need for decanting to open up. Its already there. Cellared perfectly and tasting gorgeous right now. From a very private vineyard that only Philippe Melka knew about and pulled grapes for one of his brands.

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
    • The great 2009 vintage - need we say more?
