I love a good blend, especially one crafted with care to represent the best of the fruit and the soils it comes from. Napa Valley’s Alpha Omega Proprietary Red wine ($106) is just that. Blending predominantly Cabernet Sauvignon with classic Bordeaux accompaniments (Merlot, Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc) the lush wine leaps from the glass with layers of wild cherry, fresh thyme, lilac, and chocolate. Bold, yet soft on the palate, the balance of tannin and acid ensures enjoyment from start to finish. Pair with grilled steaks, braised beef, or aged gouda or parmesan. #Cheers!
