About Taken 2018 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 very fine 2017 vintage of their classic red blend is a true winner.  65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Zinfandel, 11% Merlot, 7% Malbec and 2% Petit Syrah aged 4 months in 25% new Oak (86% French, 7% American, 7% Hungarian).

This wine shows aromas of ripe raspberry, blackberry, black currant, and plum, but careful consideration reveals soft, floral undertones. Delicate hints of jasmine and vanilla bean elevate the palate while the body is defined by flavors of quince, roasted fig, and extra dark chocolate with a dash of allspice. The texture is full and robust, but gives way to rich, supple tannins on the finish.
