Purple Heart Napa Valley Red Wine 2014
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
Wine AdvocateThis blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon was made as a dedication to the bravery of our men and women in the military. It is a joint project of Ray Coursen, a Vietnam veteran, and David Grega, a veteran of Iraq. This is a delicious, fruit-driven wine with red and black fruits, some spice, medium to full body, easygoing tannins, and a fleshy mouthfeel and finish. Drink it over the next 7-8 years.
Wine EnthusiastThis is a well-made and inviting wine, made from a majority of Merlot, with 15% Cabernet Sauvignon and small amounts of Petite Sirah and Petit Verdot. Muted aromas give way to a dense palate laced with leather and dried cherry notes. Mild in tannin and oak, it's enjoyable now
Wine SpectatorA lively, user-friendly blend, with appealing notes of red currant and tomato leaf. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petite Sirah and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2023. 15,000 cases made.
