2016 Virgil's Vineyard The Smuggler's Son Red Blend Napa Valley
The wine is an approachable yet full-bodied blend of old-vine Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, and Petite Sirah bringing out the bright fruit of the four varietals, producing flavors of ripe explosive blue fruit and black cherry including notes of milk chocolate, vanilla, and delicate white pepper.
The mouthfeel is broad and expansive framed with fine-grained sweet tannins and a lingering finish of Laxardo Cherries, mission fig, and ripe cranberry. Fruit forward and approachable now, 2016 The Smuggler’s Son will continue to age gracefully for the next 3-5 years. Limited production of under 500 cases.
