Mission Briefing

Codename:

Full Spectrum

We are completely in love with today’s remarkable 2010 Heritage Collection Napa Valley Cabernet. Drinking beautifully for such a youthful wine, this ready to drink treat will only continue to improve with age. Which is a great thing, considering just how excellent the wine is now.

This Napa Cabernet is a perfectly balanced wine with an elegant demeanor, a soft feel and wonderful aromatics. This Cab possesses both depth and vitality.

We have been featuring Cabs and blends from Maroon for the last few years and we are now dedicated fans of their superb wines. If you have not yet tasted a Maroon wine, now is a rare opportunity to taste a truly wonderful treat.

Tasting Profile

Look:

Deep and rich with a translucent core of dark maroon and edges of pure ruby.

Smell:

Dark, fruity, and earthy, with dusty blueberry, dark cherry, dark baking chocolate, dried leaves, twigs, grilled black plum and a very subtle hint of eucalyptus.

Taste:

Lovely and complex on the palate with Bing cherry, raspberry, stewed stonefruit and sweet tobacco leaf. At the end, a very subtle hint of eucalyptus makes a brief appearance.

Finish:

Ultra long, silky and sustaining finish. Bright and juicy, at first, then softly drying as plush integrated tannins work their magic. Dried stonefruit persists longest. At the end, a very subtle hint of sage makes a delightful appearance.

Pairing:

Enjoy this wine all on its own, or with a plate of grilled stonefruit served with soft goat cheese.

About the Winery

Paul Maroon became interested in winemaking over 40 years ago while as a young man helping his uncle make wine in Pennsylvania. In the back of his mind he always knew that for him Napa Valley was the place to be. Paul visited as often as possible throughout the years and finally in 2000 realized his dream and relocated to the Napa Valley. Here he began his life as a vintner and Paul has been growing grapes and making fine wines ever since.
