2019 Signature Mountain Blend

2019 Signature Mountain Blend
96 Points Int'l Wine Report

Our 2019 Signature Mountain Blend barrel aged in 90% New French and Hungarian Oak is once again a delectable representation of what our Estate Rockwell Ridge Vineyard (blended with Howell Mountain, Pritchard Hill, & Atlas Peak fruit) can produce. 62% Merlot, 18% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Malbec, 7% Petit Verdot and 5% Cabernet Franc, this limited case production is the closest wine in our program that could be called an “Estate wine” with most of the blend coming from our very own Rockwell Ridge estate vineyard (located 35 feet below the Howell Mountain AVA). Claimed by the critics as a “beautiful wine that “...explodes from the glass”, and dubbed by many over the years as “The Petrus of Napa Valley”, we are thrilled to get this wine from our Estate to yours. 188 cases produced.

"The 2019 Signature Mountain Blend from Hertelendy is sensational. This begins to impress as it releases seductive aromatics of ripe dark currants, crème de cassis and blueberries along with fresh violets, pencil shavings, wild sage brush and exotic spices. On the palate this is full-bodied, with a gorgeous rich, opulent texture that is beautifully balanced by a lovely touch of underlying acidity keeping it fresh and inviting all the way through the long enveloping finish. Displaying a remarkable combination of both power and precision, the 2019 is a total stunner and should go on to have a marvelous future." — International Wine Report, 96 Points
"The 2019 Signature Mountain Blend is composed of 62% Merlot, 18% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Malbec, 7% Petit Verdot and 5% Cabernet Franc. Deep garnet-purple in color, it displays gorgeous notes of plum preserves, redcurrant jelly and Morello cherries, plus wild blueberries, spice cake, star anise and violets. Full-bodied, rich and velvety, it delivers a lively backbone and long, spicy finish." — Robert Parker Wine Advocate, 95 Points
Vineyard Notes
"The 2019 Signature Mountain Blend is deep garnet-purple in color. It prances out with showy scents of Black Forest cake, preserved plums, and juicy blueberries, leading to suggestions of fragrant soil, potpourri, and underbrush. Full-bodied, concentrated, and decadently fruity, the palate delivers super-plush, rounded tannins and just enough freshness, finishing epically long and spicy." — 95 Points, The Wine Independent, Lisa Perrotti-Brown, MW
Production Notes
"Based largely on Merlot (there’s 18% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Malbec, 7% Petit Verdot, and 5% Cabernet Franc), the 2019 Red Blend Signature Mountain Blend is deep plum-hued and boasts a ripe, sexy, incredibly plush and full-bodied style carrying lots of ripe black cherry fruit, some spicy, chocolaty background oak, ripe tannins, and no hard edges. It’s a hedonistic bomb of a wine to enjoy over the coming 10-12 years, although I wouldn’t be surprised to see it evolve longer given its concentration." — Jeb Dunnuck, 95 Points
