2016 Apriori Proprietary Red
The Proprietary Red captures a true expression of California’s finest appellations. A blend of predominately Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot from acclaimed AVA’s including Rutherford and Howell Mountain in Napa Valley. This wine shows lively and enticing aromatics of blackberry, pomegranate, and violet. On the palate, structured flavors of black and red cherry, raspberry and cassis intermingle with focused tannins and smooth acidity.
The hand harvested and sorted grapes were fermented in stainless steel tanks for 30 days. Aged in 25% new French oak barrels for 24 months.
