Tartan (by Stewart Cellars) Red Wine 2017 (Napa Valley, CA)
50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 42% Merlot, 4% Malbec, 4% Petit Verdot “The 2017 ‘Tartan’ Red Blend has a very deep nose with aromas of dark chocolate, cherries, and plum. The rich, layered flavors of tobacco, blackcurrant, and all spice envelop the palate. While packed with tannin, this red blend has a supple and lush finish. A great wine to taste as it ages! Drink now through 2035.“
Jeb Dunnuck 91 Points: “The value-priced wine in the lineup, the 2017 Red Blend Tartan is based on 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 42% Merlot, 4% Malbec, and 4% Petit Verdot. This inky colored effort has lots of blue fruits, tobacco, lavender, and spicy aromas, medium to full body, ripe tannins, and a great finish. It's a smoking blend as well as a good value. Drink it over the coming decade."
