2007 Bad Boy Red Blend, Yountville

Our 2007 Bad Boy Red is one of those special wines which is equally at home on the table at Christmas dinner or with grilled homemade burgers on a Tuesday night. This  Bordeaux style blend combines 40% Cabernet, 33% Cabernet Franc, 17% Merlot and 10% Petite Verdot from both of our estate vineyards.

Cabernet Sauvignon from our cooler Collinetta Vineyard in Coombsville provides the foundation for the blend, and gives the wine its characteristic dark cherry and ripe blackberry aromas as well as its elegant tannin structure. Generous helpings of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot from the same vineyard bring perfume-like, lifted aromas of spring flowers and spice, and a refined note of minerality. Completing the blend, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot from our warmer Grigsby Vineyard in Yountville bring a sweet, juicy raspberry component to the approach and the mid-palate, and add delicious silkiness and length to the wine’s finish. Taken as a whole, this latest incarnation of our Bad Boy Red is exceptionally approachable and friendly, yet quietly complex and deep.

Wine Profile
Winemaker Notes
The grapes were fermented separately and aged in French oak barrels for an initial period of eight months. Winemaker Celia Welch Masyczek then selected individual lots and slowly pieced together the components of this intriguing blend. The blend was returned to age in barrels for an additional seven months to further integrate the flavors and aromas in this complex blend.
