2008 Tetra ARTET Premiere Napa Valley
First Premiere Napa Valley wine, all we could think to compare it too was a similar auction in South Africa known as the Cape Winemaker's Guild. Wine was a deep crimson red close to ruby. Lots of red cherries on the nose, with some undertones of light spices like nutmeg and mint or ecalyptus. Moderate plus tannins (7/10) and moderate body. Palate was full of red fruits, cherries and raspberries. Cherries were plush. A little dry in the moderate plus finish. Easily has a few more years in the bottle. Would be really nice around 2018 or so to help it integrate a little further.
What is the 'Premiere Napa Valley' (PNV)? PNV is as they say on their website "One of a kind wines from. the very best winemakers. Produced in California's renowned Napa Valley, Premiere Napa Valley is one of the rarest wine brands in the world." This describes the hype perfectly around it.
