This wine package for the Victory Fund Virtual Tasting event includes Gentleman Farmer’s 2020 Napa Valley Rosé and 2017 Napa Valley Red Wine.
2020 Napa Valley Rosé
This rosé wine delights with initial aromas of white strawberries, ruby red grapefruit, red cherries, and white peach. The flavors continue on the palate with watermelon, white tea, brioche, crushed gravel, and celery leaves. The wine is dry with refreshing, bright acidity and medium in body. There is a slight and pleasant bitterness of grapefruit pith that lingers on the finish. The variety of aromas and the extended finish make this a rosé that will pair well at the table and to be enjoyed with good food.
2017 Napa Valley Red Wine
The 2017 Gentleman Farmer Napa Valley Red Wine is a blend of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, both from the cooler Oak Knoll District. The initial impression is concentrated aromas of fermented blackberry, pie cherries, and cracked black pepper. The palate is lush with ripe, dark fruit notes of Japanese black plums and a glow of sour cherry and hibiscus tea. The tannin structure is soft, velvety, and supple. The finish is long with exotic hints of tamarind, blackstrap molasses, and rum raisin.
