Banknote the Vault Proprietary Red Napa Valley Best of Show & Double Gold Winner S.F. Chronicle Wine Competition 2009

Member Review by Dianne from NY:

The Vault by Banknote Wine was a great find! Honestly I was first drawn to the wine because of the interesting label, but then the wineshop owner told me it was actually a very complex and well made wine, so I gave it a shot. He was right, it is very jammy, and really easy to drink! I'm going back this weekend to buy some more......

I had the Banknote red blend a few months ago at a Pizza joint in Napa, I was really impressed! The nose was ripe with berries, sweet oak and espresso. A medium bodied wine, but is bursting with ripe fruit and has nice tannins on the back end to give it some structure. I highly recommend to anyone who enjoys Zinfandel, which I think is the dominant varietal in this blend. Easily worth the $30 asking price.

while the blend is very similar, the wine is a bit more elegant and livelier than 'the prisoner' it's certainly a red I would easily recommend...
