Hudson Phoenix Red Blend Napa Carneros 2019
A Merlot heavy blend with the addition of 18% Cabernet Sauvignon and 18% Cabernet Franc from two vineyards on the Hudson Estate. The grapes coming from Napa Carneros more intensely influenced by the cooling effects of the San Pablo Bay, creating less ripe fruit. This translates to a softly textured wine full of earth notes. Leather, tobacco, and fresh potting soil are brightened up by blackberries, blueberries and vanilla from 23 months in oak.
