Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Dark chocolate, blackberry, mint and subtle notes of leather. A fruit forward, elegant red wine with balanced tannins and a smooth finish.
Production Notes
The winter of 2013-2014 was one of the driest in California’s history with Napa Valley receiving only half of its average rainfall. But, with respect to grape quality, there was good news: heavy rains in February and early March gave the vines emerging from dormancy a rejuvenating boost. Furthermore, the overall dry season resulted in smaller berry size with concentrated characteristics that added depth to the fruit’s inherent flavors. Rhiannon Napa Valley is a proprietary red blend, including these Bordeaux varietals: Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, and Malbec. Merlot imparts jammy fruit flavors and the Petit Verdot and Malbec, with their refined tannins, enhance the wine's soft, supple mouthfeel. Our winemaking team blends in complimentary red varietals, then ages the wine in oak for almost two years. We are proud to offer this well-balanced and flavorful red wine exclusively to our winery guests and wine club members.
Food Pairing Notes
Our 2014 Rhiannon Red Wine is deliciously versatile. Pair with braised short ribs, Irish cheddar gratin, or a dark chocolate mousse.

68% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Petit Verdot, 5% Petite Sirah, 5% Merlot, 6% Malbec, 4% Cabernet Franc
