Want a bold, rich, flavorful Napa red that you can open on a random weeknight or when hard-to-impress guests are visiting? That sort of wine usually requires a second mortgage. But now and again we unearth a wine such as this, made by Jamey Whetstone, of Whetstone Wines, who started his career at Turley Wine Cellars. Whetstone's talent truly takes flight in Aviary, as this blend of Cabernet, Zin, Merlot and Petite Sirah offers all the complexity and juicy goodness of Napa, but at a price that isn't soaring up near the clouds. This is one of the most impressive, versatile wines we've come across this year.
From the winery: "The wine presents aromas of cherry, blackberry, tobacco and black currant, reinforced by notes of truﬄe, nutmeg and subtle cinnamon. On the palate, this wine is lush and juicy, with a ﬂeshy mid-palate and soft, lingering tannins. Reﬁned oak-inspired elements of cedar and walnut highlight the rich dark fruit ﬂavors, giving them an enticing black-cherry-pie quality."
