Tasting Profile

Look

Dark black cherry juice at the core. Bright ruby at the edges. Short, slow-moving, wine-stained tears fall slowly down the glass wall.

Smell

Stewed blackberry with red plum, raspberry, wild strawberry and smoky blueberry melded with cigar box, rustic pipe tobacco, mixed spice, and subtle earthen clay.

Taste

Black cherry and blackberry preserve, smoky blueberry, cedar, tobacco leaf, savory spice, black pepper, and dusty earth.

Finish

Extra long and very elegant, with plush, gradually drying tannins that slowly spread across the palate as flavors fade.

Pairing

This solid Napa Red will contrast beautifully with our spicey and tangy General Tso’s Grilled Wings. Both the wine and this recipe pack a punch!

What the experts says

Note: This wine really delivers the goods. It is really difficult to make a Napa Valley wine of this quality for a price this low. Be sure to get your order in early, as we are very likely to sell out.

This selection is the Ultra QPR (Quality to Price Ratio) - and ultra delicious - Block 88 Wine 2013 Napa Valley Red Wine, a rich and elegant wine with savory flavors of fruit, earth, and spice.
