2016 Audēre Red Blend
By popular demand, this 2016 Audēre Red Blend (42% Merlot, 32% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Petit Verdot, 9% Cabernet Franc, & 1% Malbec) best-seller is topping the charts with an increased total production of 239 cases. In typical bold fashion, it comes out guns blazing with lots of extract, some serious tannin, and a full-bodied mouthfeel hailing from ultra premium, volcanic Napa areas such as the Pritchard Hill area, Howell Mountain, Atlas Peak, and our very own Rockwell Ridge estate vineyard (35 feet below Howell Mountain). It is an exuberant, rich wine with red cherries, oodles of black fruits, and coffee notes. Very reminiscent of the inaugural 2013 Audēre, this is sure to please even the biggest Sideways-Loving, Merlot-Hater...and yes, the rumors are true….this label glows-in-the dark! Turn off the lights and see for yourself.
