Quilt Napa Valley Red Blend

2020 Quilt Napa Valley Red Blend...$33.99
compare to $34.99 at Total Wine and More
Winemaker Joseph Wagner (yes, of Caymus)
A sturdy, inky blend of Petite Sirah, Merlot, Zinfandel, and Petit Verdot, with scents of licorice, tarry plum, and tobacco. Creamy and deeply shadowed with cigar leaf and mountain brush that plays to a smoky side.  Juicy black fruit sweetens the palate while espresso, grilled meat, and cedar add to the dense pattern of power and grace.
Rated 93/100 The Tasting Panel
