Ca' Momi 2014 Rosso Di Napa, Red Blend, Napa Valley
Rosso Di Napa is Ca' Momi's proprietary red Napa Valley blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel, Merlot and Petite Sirah. Located in the Carneros region of Napa, Ca' Momi owns two estate vineyards that grow mainly Pinot Noir. But there's also Merlot and a few other varieties that are well suited to this South Napa micro-climate. They source Cab from their neighbors up north and put together this easy to like, lush red that's Napa Valley at it's fruit-forward friendliest. Best of all it's on sale at a practically unheard of price for a Napa Valley blend. Grab this one while you can and don't wait a minute to enjoy it!
Totally agree with the taster. Was introduced to this wine at a restaurant, and had to take a bottle with me. With that said, I am a full bodied dry red fan. This wine had the boldness of a full bodied wine when it hit the pallet, but is left with the absence of the bitter rough edged finish like you find with some Missouri Nortons / Chamborcins. It's a little more like Chianti than Cab or Pino Noir.
