K&L Notes

Winery notes: "This is a classically styled Napa Valley Bordeaux blend with ripe plum and raspberry notes, complimented by hints of cedar and graphite. Soft tannins give way to a bold, lengthy finish. Composition: 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 32% Merlot and 28% Cabernet Franc. Grand Napa Vineyards is located in the heart of Rutherford, near the foot of Mt. St. John in the Mayacamas mountain range. Rutherford is our land, our history, and the heart of our mission: to create and bring outstanding wines from Napa Valley to the world. We grow Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc grapes. Each of our vintners implements their own artisan techniques, barrel selections, fermentation and microbiology to produce an array of distinctive wines, each with unique character and texture."

    The Master Red is the lightest and freshest of the Grand Napa lineup that we recently got in for this vintage. It's a lovely Bordeaux style blend that got 93 points from Robert Parker. The nose begins floral and gently perfumed, then raspberry notes emerge with just a little spicebox. The palate is dry and dusty with more fruit coming out such as black cherry, blueberry, and a redoubling of the raspberry characteristics from the nose. Yet, with all this dark fruit, the wine never gets heavy-handed. It stays light and elegant into its medium-long finish.

    The blend is dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon with smaller amounts of Merlot and Cab Franc. This is a beautifully polished wine. It's brimming with ripe red fruits, exotic spices, raspberry liquor, summer berry compote. Medium - full bodied but very pure and elegant, long and fresh on the palate rather than thick or jammy. Very well judged with great energy and personality. I like this style very much; it showcases the clarity of fruit one can achieve in Napa without being overly ripe or heavy.

    The aptly named Grand Napa winery offering yet another classic Napa bottling here with their "Master" red blend. Heaps of dried red fruit, dominated by strawberry, on the nose matches up well with the same fruit on the palette, where it's joined by red velvet and faint herbal tones that wrap it up nicely through the incredibly long finish, pushed further and further by the fine acidity. Top example from a top vintage.

    Waves of pure red fruit aromas lead to a palate that's remarkably pure and poised with cassis, currant, and polished tannins. It is very elegant, but there's good resounding sweet red fruit and mouthwatering acidity on a clean finish. Another winner from Grand Napa that shows a ton of refinement and grace. Very refreshing, and another terrific example of the vintage.
