One of the tiniest boutique producers in Napa Valley, Kelly Family Vineyards crafts limited amounts of premium Cabernet Sauvignon from the Kelly family’s 10-acre property in the esteemed Oak Knoll District of Napa Valley. Some years, the production is so small that it is reserved exclusively for close friends and family. We are fortunate to share the Kellys' award-winning 2013 Red Blend with our Platinum Wine Club members.

On the nose, there is a nice intensity of aromas with bright fruit notes and hints of cherries, spice, and just a touch of earth. On the palate, there is astounding balance and weight with flavors of red fruit and underlying notes of chocolate and eucalyptus that linger on the finish. This Cabernet Sauvignon was blended with Napa Valley Merlot, which gives the wine its velvety soft texture and elegance and adds to the complexity of dark fruit notes.
