Alpha Omega Proprietary Red 2011, Napa Valley, CA, $94(S) – Rating 92

Alpha Omega Proprietary Red 2011 The cool summer of 2011 made for a challenging growing season but this blend of Cabernet 72%, Cabernet Franc 20%, Petit Verdot 5% and Merlot 3% shows that with quality winemaking, one can rise to the challenge, to create an excellent wine in the toughest of vintages. A rich nose of plum, black cherry and blackberry pie with whiffs of tobacco, vanilla and baking spice. Robust on the palate with balanced acidity and defined tannins. Full flavors of black cherry, oaky vanilla, plum with a hint of raspberry and black pepper. Very dark chocolate on the finish. Buy This Wine
