2015 Protégé Napa Valley Red Wine
Approachable yet serious. Protégé has a bright aroma and the fruit to attract the novice wine drinker, but also the balance and full body to satisfy an experienced connoisseur. This wine offers an enticing bouquet of vibrant blackberry, vanilla, and eucalyptus. The palate is a mouth coating, extracted dark fruit flavor with a hint of smokiness. 18 months aging in French Oak makes for a smooth finish and soft, chalky tannins.
