Purple Heart Napa Valley Red Wine 2014
Wine EnthusiastThis is a well-made and inviting wine, made from a majority of Merlot, with 15% Cabernet Sauvignon and small amounts of Petite Sirah and Petit Verdot. Muted aromas give way to a dense palate laced with leather and dried cherry notes. Mild in tannin and oak, it's enjoyable now
Wine SpectatorA lively, user-friendly blend, with appealing notes of red currant and tomato leaf. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petite Sirah and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2023. 15,000 cases made.
Wine AdvocateThis blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon was made as a dedication to the bravery of our men and women in the military. It is a joint project of Ray Coursen, a Vietnam veteran, and David Grega, a veteran of Iraq. This is a delicious, fruit-driven wine with red and black fruits, some spice, medium to full body, easygoing tannins, and a fleshy mouthfeel and finish. Drink it over the next 7-8 years.
