Rebellious Red, 2008, Napa Valley Red Wine [Sequoia Grove Winery]


Nice nose and body.. Rich, complex, darkened depth. Finish exudes surprising new notes: chocolate, a little herb, maybe some vanilla and mint. Just the type of red you want to open during dinner, at the end of dinner.. After dinner, or instead of. Texturally, it’s tannins will make themselves known but without any fruit suppression. Nice balance and progression the entire sip. Put in your cellar, maybe for a couple years if you pocket more than one, to see what happens, but my estimation is that it’ll age magically. –2/19/13
