2019 Alpha Omega Proprietary Red Blend Napa Valley
Winemaker Notes: On the nose, concentrated small berries, gooseberries, red currants, Mirabelle plum jam, cedar, violet candies, underbrush, cassis, coffee grinds, red velvet cakes, sea salt caramels, and licorice powder. On the palate, silky, soft, round entrance, evolving on elegant tannins, notes of fresh cantaloupe, juicy pear, wild strawberry, watermelon, hint of Espelette pepper, blackberry, cherry, hint of fennel, bitter orange zest, tomato stem, ripe nectarine, grenadine, lavender, and pork roast. Blend: 79% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Franc, 4% Petit Verdot
James Suckling - "A solid red with blackberry, currant and dark-chocolate aromas and flavors. Medium to full body, firm tannins and a fresh finish. Shows firmness and focus. 40% cabernet sauvignon, 27% merlot, 21% malbec, 8% petit verdot and 4% cabernet franc. Best after 2024."
Jeb Dunnuck - "A blend of 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 27% Merlot, 21% Malbec, and the rest Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc, mostly from the Atlas Peak region, the 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Proprietary Red Wine is another dense, concentrated wine with plenty of darker, plummy, blue fruits, notes of tobacco and graphite, medium to full body, and ripe tannins. It drops off on the finish, which kept the score down, but it's certainly a beautiful, balanced wine from this lineup."
