Muddy Arch Red Blend

Muddy-Arch-Red
- +
29.45 €224,60 HRK

Muddy Arch Winery is located in historic Napa Valley and winemaker Chris Leonard has strong relationships with grape growers in Napa and surrounding wine regions. This red blend is a unique combination of three varietals, each picked a week or two earlier to make sure that they do not become over-ripe and sweet. Chris Leonard wanted this wine to be true to the varietal characteristics of the grapes and not a high-alcohol “fruit bomb” red wine often associated with American Zinfandel-based wines. This red blend is Zinfandel (44%), Carignane (32%), and Petit Verdot (24%). The result is a beautifully aromatic and flavorful red wine, combining an old-world approach to winemaking with the terroir of California.

  • Blackberry
  • Baked cherries

What is beautiful about layering these particular grape varieties together is the resulting exotic bouquet. On the nose, there is abundant red and black fruit: boysenberry, huckleberry, blackberry, and some black cherry. These fruit notes are complemented by notes of graphite, tar, dark chocolate, espresso, black licorice, anise, sage and kalamata olives. A rich, structured, balanced wine with a chewy, deep finish with strong tannins delivered by the Petit Verdot.

  • Blue cheese
  • Lamb
  • Tuna
  • Pork
