2015 Napa Valley Michael's Cuvée
Effusive and ready to go. Lush aromas of ripe summer berries and black cherries, with a hint of cassis, lift out of the glass with each swirl. Sweet juicy fruit on entry and concentrated blackberry and cherry on the palate. Perfectly balanced acidity and supple tannins give you permission to open it now, but patience in the cellar will definitely be rewarded.
The varietals that make up Michael’s Cuvée changes vintage to vintage, giving us the ability to blend only the best barrels that each vintage has to offer. A fun, yet seriously delicious wine, it is no accident the founder’s name is on the label.
The 2015 vintage is comprised of 57% Merlot, 26% Cabernet Franc and 17% Cabernet Sauvignon, with 83% of the fruit growing on the historic Oakville Station Vineyard.
