2017 Audēre Red Blend

2017 Audēre Red Blend
93 Points Wine Enthusiast

By popular demand, this 2017 Audēre Red Blend (42% Cabernet Sauvignon, 24% Merlot, 22% Petit Verdot, 11% Malbec, & 1% Cabernet Franc) best-seller is topping the charts with a total production of 239 cases.  23 months barrel aged in 90% New French and Hungarian Oak, in typical bold fashion, it comes out guns blazing with lots of extract, some serious tannin, and a full-bodied mouthfeel. This blend hails 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…except this label glows-in-the dark! Turn off the lights and see for yourself.

"Made from a majority of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot, then aged 23 months in mostly new French and Hungarian oak, this is an earthy and savory wine. Cedar, pencil shaving, currant and dried herb mix within a hugely concentrated and structured frame of bold berry fruit and ongoing intensity." — Virginie Boone
