2019 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."
