What does an all-star winemaking team look like?
Combine David Abreu, Andy Erickson and Morgan Maurèze’s resume and you pretty much cover all the best wineries in US (Screaming Eagle, Harlan, Abreu, etc) and France (Domaine de la Romanee, Haut Brion). Their Bordeaux blend, the
2015 Marciano “M” Proprietary Red, Napa Valley, USA is not to be missed
It is a rich and layered Bordeaux blend that balances the density and power of our vineyard’s Cabernet Sauvignon with the silky texture and perfumed aromatics of our best blocks of Cabernet Franc. This wine’s lush flavors and supple structure make it generous in its youth while allowing the wine to age gracefully for many years to come.
Tasting Notes: "The 2015 M Red wine boasts aromas of black cherry, crème de cassis, violet and espresso. On the palate, the Cabernet Sauvignon adds beautiful concentration, lush fruit flavors and incredible depth. Conditions in 2015 were ideal for the Cabernet Franc, which achieved perfect ripeness and contributed to the wine’s expressive bouquet and silky, refined texture. The addition of Petit Verdot completes the blend, resulting in a seamless wine, and showcasing the complexity and amplitude of our ten-acre estate vineyard."
The wine is a blend of 72% Cabernet Sauvignon , 23% Cabernet Franc , 5% Petit Verdot
95 Points Jeb Dunnuck
"The 2015 M Proprietary Red Wine checks in as a blend of 72% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Cabernet Franc and the balance Petit Verdot, all of which was aged 22 months in French oak. It offers terrific purity and depth with terrific notes of creme de cassis, lead pencil, spring flowers, and forest floor. This full-bodied, elegant 2015 has plenty of fruit, impeccable balance, and fine tannins, all of which give it a classic feel. It’s certainly delicious today, yet I suspect it has another two decades of longevity. It’s the real deal.”
