This very nice Reserve red blend from Napa’s Oakville appellation by winemaker Reed Renaudin has so much going for it including the suave taste profile. It’s from the River Vineyard which is located right next to two super wineries, Groth and Silver Oak. And 2013 was a picture perfect vintage in Napa Valley as the wines are lush, fruit forward and approachable early. This wine is comprised of mainly Merlot with Cabernet Sauvignon, Petite Sirah and Cab Franc. It spent a year in new and neutral French  and American Oak. It shines with a pretty purple  hue with garnet highlights. The nose is all mocha with red flowers and dark red fruit. The palette is dominated by cherries with crème de cassis, raspberries, boysenberry, red plum, coffee and chocolate. Pair with chicken Parmesan, Roast duck, Moroccan lamb, mushroom risotta and filet mignon. Only 830 cases were produced.

2013 Oakville Red Blend
 
Winemaker Notes
Blending together different wines to create something better than each component is one of the least-appreciated elements of the art of winemaking. Winemaker Reed Renaudin drew on more than a decade of winemaking experience to assemble this wine from a premium Napa Valley vineyard that offers the depth and multi-faceted flavors that mark an excellent blend. 
 
Winemaking Notes
Renaudin studied winemaking at UC Davis and used the fundamentals he learned there and his veteran palate to produce this wine that exhibits bold aromas of ripe, dark fruit that are followed by rich flavors of plum and black currant held together by a foundation of French and American oak. The 2013 Mockingbird is comprised of 85% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Franc, and 4% of both Cabernet Sauvignon and Petite Sirah. The Merlot provides the rich fruit flavors while the other varieties bring tannin structure and a dose of natural acidity. All of the grapes come from the storied River Vineyard, which is located in the heart of the Oakville AVA of Napa Valley. The appellation spans the middle of the valley as well as the eastern and western hillsides. The 35-acre River Vineyard is situated near some of Napa’s best Bordeaux varietal wine producers including Groth, Silver Oak and several others. 
 
Vintage Notes
The 2013 vintage provided ideal conditions and Renaudin was able to leave the grapes on the vine until they reached optimal ripeness. “The wonderful weather made making a picking decision easy; pick them when they’re perfect,” Renaudin said. After gentle hand harvesting, the grapes were destemmed and then meticulously sorted at the winery so only the best fruit went into the fermentation tank. Renaudin gave the must a three-day cold soak before adding yeast to initiate a fairly long fermentation at relatively low and steady temperatures. Each variety fermented and aged separately so Renaudin could better understand the characteristics of each wine before bringing them together.
