2016 LATERAL NAPA VALLEY PROPRIETARY RED

$50.00 $39.99 $39.99

Lateral is a wine inspired by the Bordeaux region of St. Emilion and influenced by the interplay and tension created between Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Kathryn Kennedy proprietor Marty Mathis showcases how each of these iconic grapes can complement yet contrast each other in a way to harmonize, that’s different from other Bordeaux style blends, and the results simply have to be tasted.

Lateral’s 2016 vintage slants towards cooler-climate, expressive vineyards, primarily located in the Southern portion of Napa Valley. On the palate, it’s a highly detailed wine with spiced red fruits, wild mint, rock minerals, rose and cocoa dusted plum.

A stunning example of just how inspiring Right Bank influenced blends from Napa Valley can be, Marty loves to showcase the lush textures and richness of Merlot entirely opposing the aromatic qualities and structure of Cabernet Franc. At under $40, you might grab a case quickly, before this deal goes sideways.

Description

2016 LATERAL NAPA VALLEY PROPRIETARY RED

Very deep dark royal purple color. Classic Bordeaux style nose with tobacco leaf herb notes and dark brooding black berry aromas plus hints of cherry cream candies. Ideal amounts of subtle creamy oak barrel influences. Soft ripe plums, vanilla cream and loamy earth notes are complex and very inviting. Fresh but rich in the mouth (like so many wines of 2016), lithe and elegant mouth-feel leads to cranberry, minerals and dark cocoa flavors. Tannins are still youthful and acid balance portends well for cellar development; This is a bigger style of LATERAL to be en- joyed now and over a longer period of years” 
67% Merlot | Cabernet Franc 33%
