Taken Napa Valley Red Blend 750ml
The 2018 Taken Red Blend is a careful balancing act of light and dark. At first glance, the nose is dominated by ripe notes of raspberry, blackberry, black currant, and plum, but careful consideration reveals soft, floral undertones. Delicate hints of jasmine and vanilla bean elevate the palate while the body is defined by flavors of quince, roasted fig, and extra dark chocolate with a dash of allspice. The texture is full and robust, but gives way to rich, supple tannins on the finish.
Raised in the small, winegrowing town of St. Helena, in Napa Valley, wine is in our DNA. We realized our mutual dream when we began producing wine, breaking away from our winemaking families, and developing ideas to craft a unique identity for ourselves.As we approached the completion of our college degrees, our passion for wine and business was evident.The Taken Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon was our first wine created, released in 2010. Each succeeding vintage represents another step we have "taken" on this journey.We have now established a timeless, fun-spirited, wordplay venture to call our own. Whether taken, complicated, or available, we hope you enjoy our wines!
