Axr Winery Proprietary Red 2019
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
Mostly Cabernet, the value-priced 2019 Red Blend Proprietary Red sports a dense purple color as well as a gorgeous nose of pure crème de cassis, graphite, tobacco leaf, and classy oak. Rich, medium to full-bodied, round, and supple, it tastes as if it cost three times the price. Drink it over the coming decades. 3900 cases.
The 2019 Red Blend is composed of 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Cabernet Franc, 4% Merlot and 1% Petit Verdot. Deep garnet-purple in color, the nose delivers impactful scents of cassis, dried herbs, tar and beef drippings, with suggestions of tapenade and fertile loam. Medium to full-bodied, soft, juicy and plush in the mouth, it has a long, savory finish.
The 2019 Red Blend Proprietary Red is loaded with jammy dark cherry, plum, mocha, new leather and sweet spice. Soft contours and plush tannins give this opulent red plenty of immediacy and near term appeal.
