Vineyard Block Estate Block 955 Reserve Red Blend 2012 Napa Valley, California


My Rating 91 Points.  
Price $22.

Dark ruby in color with a purplish rim.

On the nose, blueberries, blackberries, coffee, chocolate, vanilla, bell pepper, tobacco, spices and light black pepper.

Full bodied and smooth with nice long legs.

Dry on the palate with vanilla, chocolate, oak, blueberries, blackberries, black currants, sweet cherries, spices and black pepper.

Long finish with big round tannins.

This is a great Reserve blend from Napa Valley. Still young, and a little hot on the attack, but would be gorgeous in five years.

Hand-picked and Aged in French and American oak barrels for 23 months.
Small production of less than 2,000 cases.

14.8% alcohol by volume.
