2016 Addax Proprietary Red

Estate: Addax Wines
Region: Napa Valley, North Coast, California, United States of America
Vineyards: Sugarloaf and Tench Vineyards


Tasting Note:May 27, 2018

Inky purplish ruby red and completely coats the glass. Rich and layered nose with cinnamon, anise, black and blue fruits, dark sweet spices, and a touch of gunpowder. Heavy tannins (8/10) and full bodied. Just what you would expect from Bevan; big, voluptuous and rich. Layers of black plums, cinnamon, fall spices, black dirt, blackberries and gravel. Long and lingering finish. Killer wine built for the long haul.

Second stop on day three and finally made it to Napa. We tasted through some wines from Standard Deviation Wines and Addax Wines with Josh and Cheryl at Brasswood. Next up for Addax Wines is their Red Wine made up of around 60% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Franc and the rest Cabernet Sauvignon from the Sugarloaf Mountain and Tench vineyards. Aged in 100% new French oak that have gone through a five year stave air drying process. Made by Russell Bevan.
