2015 Pono Wines Hapa Red Blend
Region: Napa Valley
Cépage: Cabernet Sauvignon; Merlot; Cabernet Franc
Size: 750 ml
" This deeply colored Cabernet Sauvignon based blend perfumes aromas of crushed black pepper, stewed black cherries and hints of vanilla from the 75% new French oak used for aging. On the palate the wine is approachable and juicy, yet masculine in structure. After a short decant the wine’s aromas become enticing and beg to be paired with roasted lamb or a hearty stew. The grapes are sourced from two of Napa Valley’s top grape growing appellations: Diamond Mountain and Spring Mountain. The use of mountain grown grapes gives this blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot tremendous ability to age. Hapa in Hawaiin means mixed or blend."
