Materra Cunant Reserve
TASTING NOTES: Materra Cunant Reserve Red Blend
By all accounts, an outstanding growing season for the Napa Valley yielded a plentiful harvest of ripe and flavorful fruit across all varietals and sub-appellations. Many vineyards produced record yields with harvest timing decisions made by the flavor and ripeness of the grapes, not on impending weather. This vintage saw near-perfect spring bud break, steady flowering and fruit set, and ideally consistent weather with fog in the mornings, sunny warm days and cool nights. "Mother Nature smiled upon the California wine harvest this year with a bountiful crop of amazing quality,” a sentiment heard from winemakers across the Napa Valley. winemaking notes As its predecessors, we hand-selected only the very best fruit and crafted a deep, dense and broody reserve Merlot. Bold and luscious aromas of dark raspberry, black cherry and plum are complemented by the oak that imparts spice, cedar, leather, caramel and a hint of vanilla that only becomes richer as the wine opens up. The palate provides expansive flavors of plum, bright cherry fruit and earthy tones that finishes gracefully. Well-integrated supple tannins with nice acidity yields nice weight and affirms the wine will beautifully age for another 10-15 years. Decanting is highly suggested if opened now and can be enjoyed with a variety of dishes including slow cooked short ribs, root vegetables, squab, aged sheep’s milk cheese, Pecorino and mushroom based dishes.
