Steve Reynolds' signature wine! The 2007 "Persistence" Red Wine is a proprietary blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, Cabernet Franc, and Petit Verdot selected from nine premium vineyards throughout Napa Valley, including the family's own estate property near the Stags Leap District. This beautiful Bordeaux-style blend is the only blended wine the Reynolds produce under their family label, and according to Steve Reynolds, defines exactly what a Napa blend should taste like - a little fruit forward yet old-world in style.
The Beverage Testing Institute awards the 2007 "Persistence" an outstanding 93 Points: "Deep violet black color. Aromas of cassis, vanilla, peppercorn, and dried cherries with a hint of herbs. Supple and round with a fruity-yet-dry medium-full body and a juicy, tangy starfruit cedar accented finish with firm, chewy tannins." The wine's ripe raspberry and jammy flavors of blueberry and dark plum matched with its long savory finish provides an incredible richness, making the 2007 "Persistence" a wonderfully food friendly wine.
