Cloud View Red Napa Valley 2006
2006 is the last vintage bottled by Cloud View from its Pritchard Hill vineyard, as the property was purchased by Tim Mondavi, who is currently building the winery for his ultra-premium Continuum project there. Winemaker Karen Turjanis has produced a profound red wine here. It exhibits a dark color and possesses a firm structure, with a full-bodied, balanced flavor of earthy black fruits. This version is 48% Merlot and 52% Cabernet Sauvignon, and is a relative value for a Napa Valley Bordeaux blend of this quality.
Cloud View produces a single proprietary premium red wine blended from Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot from the best, most intense red grapes from Napa mountain vineyards. We limit our annual production to 600 - 800 cases.
