Rich depth of blackberry, dark cherry and black currant, coupled with sweet oak spice and brambly forest floor aromas. The complex nose has notes of aromatic cedar, cinnamon, clove, green chili and dark chocolate.
Full bodied and well balanced, Ted’s Blend is opulent with blackberry and cherry flavors that fill the palate from start to finish. This is a blockbuster wine from the 2014 vintage…you can drink it now, but it will also be tremendous with age.
The winter was one of the driest on record for the Napa Valley; however, when we did get rain, it came when the vines needed it most, promoting bud break and new shoot growth. The balance of the season was moderate to warm, the crop was abundant, and the fruit ripened about two weeks early on average. 2014 was a wonderful harvest yielding great wines with immense depth of flavor.
