"A rich, fun red, the 2012 Pirate Treasured hits the palate with plenty of juiciness and overall resonance. The flavors are dark, bold and delicious from start to finish." (VM)

"A playful blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Grenache, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc and Petite Sirah, this hearty bottling delivers something for everyone, from the austere, classic nature of the Bordeaux varieties to the fruitiness and savory leather tones of the Rhônes. It’s made to be bold, black and enjoyable now; pack a bottle or two for your next adventures, eye patch optional." (WE)

Winery Notes:
The true treasure of the seven seas - Pirate TreasuRed. A big, brazen blend of seven different red varietals. Enjoy this delicious Cab blend and have some fun while you're at it. Drink up, me hearties!

Using seven varieties, the "treasure of the seven seas" is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc, Grenache, and Petite Sirah. Pirate TreasuRed will arrive properly in a six-bottle treasure chest box. The bottles resemble rum bottles with the label an old map of the Napa Valley. The wine is bold and Cab-like with the other varietal flavor profiles overlapping, showing off the magic of the blend.

Winemaker Notes:
Very deeply colored like blackberry jam. Aromas are bold, dried black cherry, dark chocolate. Cab-like yet different with a lifted Grenache note. Across the palate it's broad, mouth filling and powerful with unusually sweet tannins, and a long finish. A big, black, bold wine with distinct personality and style.
