About Taken 2016 Red Blend, Napa Valley

The latest release from Taken Wine Company. Two young men from Napa Valley have taken the wine world by storm. Profiled in Forbes and Zagat 30 under 30, featured on the Today Show on NBC profiled in 40 Under 40 in
Wine Enthusiast Magazine. Long time friends and from wine growing families, Carlo Trinchero and Josh Phelps decided to start their own wine making venture. As they thought of names and searched them for trademarks everything they liked was taken, so that's what they decided to call their business, Taken Wine Company.

Their focus was to make great Napa Valley wine at an affordable price and having some close grower relations and wine grapes in their blood, they hit the ground running. This latest release from the outstanding 2015 vintage of their classic red blend is a true winner. 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot, 9% Malbec, 4% Petit Verdot and 2% Petite Sirah aged in 50% new French oak barrels.

Wine Spectator scored this 91 points saying "Warm and velvety in feel, with a well-toasted frame that melds into the core of steeped currant, plum and blackberry flavors. A loamy tug through the finish keeps this grounded. Not shy on heft but pulls it off. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Malbec, Petit Verdot and Petite Sirah. Best from 2020 through 2028."
