About the Wine
No. 5 Blueline Vineyards is a rare gem in the world of Napa Reds. This extraordinary wine takes the classic flavors of Napa Valley and kicks it up a notch. Crafted with Cabernet, Merlot, and a twist of Zinfandel from one of St. Helena's most prized vineyards, this Proprietary Red is a flavor rollercoaster.
Verdon Estate's roots run deep, with a winemaking tradition spanning over five generations. Their journey led them from their ancestral town of Moustiers-Sainte-Marie in France to the enchanting Napa Valley. The winery pays homage to the Verdon River, which gave birth to their family's existence.
Behind every great wine is a passionate winemaker. And in Verdon’s case, that’s rockstar Kevin Morrisey, with a resume that includes Château Pétrus and Etude Winery, he brings a wealth of expertise to Verdon Estate. He's captivated by mountain-grown Cabernet Sauvignon, and with Verdon Estate, he's committed to delivering high-quality, quintessential Napa Valley wines.
In a market where Napa Valley Reds are increasingly coveted and commanding premium prices, finding an exceptional offering under $30 can seem impossible. However, Verdon Estate Proprietary Red Reserve No. 5 Blueline Vineyards defies the odds, offering a remarkable value. This wine stands out not just for its exceptional flavor, which can compete with renowned wines like Orin Swift and Prisoner, but also for its budget-friendly price.
Aging: in 60% new French Oak for 18 months.
Tasting Notes: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Zinfandel. An architectural beauty, with a broad frame and good grip. Determined tannins show the wine’s youth but can’t mask its luscious quality. An edge of Italian herbs, espresso, and balsamic keeps the tone serious but allows the vibrant red and blue fruit to shine through.
Gorgeous blueberry liqueur notes intermixed with graphite and minerals jump from the glass of this dark ruby/purple-colored red. It boasts fabulous intensity, an alluring texture and a rich, concentrated finish with no hard edges. Big and stylish, ready for your palate. ~93 Tasting Panel Magazine
