Matthiasson Napa Valley Red Blend 2014
“Steve Mathiasson’s 2014 Bordeaux-esque blend is among the most graceful and stunningly complex Napa reds on the market. Period. This will single-handedly change the way you view a region.
We know you love elegant Napa Cabernet, the complexities of serious Bordeaux, and the purity of natural farming, and Steve Matthiasson, who is a viticultural and winemaking mastermind, seamlessly blends them together. The result is a jaw-dropping, rarified red that speaks to a bygone era of Napa Cabernet. Better yet, because the Matthiassons understand the aging capability of this singular bottle—and I’m sure most of you know there’s nothing more sacrilegious than opening a world-class wine prematurely—they aged it several years before its official release. Steve is a San Francisco Chronicle “Winemaker of the Year” winner and one of the most talked-about young producers on the California scene today. You want the greatest marriage of finesse, fruit purity, and minerality? This limited label has no equal.” Ian Cauble, Master Sommelier of SommSelect
