The 2013 Sixteen Appellations is a gorgeous red blend from some of the most notable vineyards in Napa Valley including Robert Keenan’s Vineyard in Spring Mountain District, Blackbird Vineyard in Oak Knoll District, Annapurna Vineyard in Stags Leap District and Constant Vineyard in the Diamond Mountain District. As with all of the Appellations wines, this vintage represents Napa Valley as a whole, blending fruit from each of the sixteen appellations in the world renowned wine growing region. This 2013 vintage has the fruit, spice and earth notes that characterize the signature Appellations blend. It has red fruits up front, held together by a lattice of oak spices, including star anise, cardamom and clove. There is a creamy mid-palate, which might remind you of a warm chocolate tart drizzled with red fruit syrup. The finish is long with sweet, supple tannins.
