TASTING NOTE:

Composed of 40% Merlot, 30% Petite Sirah, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Malbec, the 2016 The Investor is deep garnet-purple in color. On the nose, it features slightly subdued notions of blackberries, baked plums, boysenberries and dark chocolate with hints of tilled soil, garrigue and spice cake. Medium-bodied, the palate is laden with crunchy fruit, supported by soft tannins and plenty of freshness, finishing on a peppery note. 

-Robert Parker Wine Advocate, 92 pts

 

A soft, round red with lots of dark berries and chocolate, as well as hazelnut flavor. Medium body, lovely fruit and balance. 40% merlot, 30% petit sirah, 20% cabernet sauvignon and 10% malbec. Drink now.

WINEMAKER'S NOTE:

The Investor is a red wine that beautifully blends together the unique flavors and expressions of Merlot, Petite Sirah, Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec, resulting in a powerful, yet approachable assemblage with significant fruit presence. The Merlot contributes fresh red berry aromatics and a soft, velvety texture to balance the power of Petite Sirah, which adds concentration, tannins, spice and blueberry flavors. The Cabernet Sauvignon further increases the final blend’s complexity and depth and the Malbec’s incredibly vibrant floral aromatics heighten the blend’s freshness. The majority of the Petite Sirah fruit comes from estate vineyards in Oakville, and additional fruit is sourced from a diverse selection of northern and southern Napa Valley vineyards to broaden the wine’s floral and spicy characteristics. The Merlot is grown on the Stags’ Leap estate in the heart of the Stags Leap District, and a selection of southern valley floor Cabernet Sauvignon fruit makes up the balance of the blend.
