2017 Versada Napa Valley Red Wine Blend

Scoring 94 points from Robert Parker Wine Advocate, reviewer Lisa Perrotti-Brown says, “The 2017 Versada is blended of 74% Cabernet Sauvignon and 26% Petite Sirah. It has a deep garnet-purple color and broody nose with charcoal, earth, tobacco and herbs with a waft of fried herbs. Medium-bodied, it is dilute and lean in the mid palate with a chewy texture and abrupt finish.”

This is a full-bodied, fruit-driven wine with rich and juicy flavors of dark black and red fruit along with satisfying notes of dark spice. The blend is 74% Cabernet Sauvignon and 26% Petite Sirah. 

After several years of drought, the 2017 growing season was strong with a cool, slow harvest which allowed red grapes to ripen gradually –developing aromatic notes and a nice acidity. The Cabernet in this Red Blend is sourced from exceptional vineyards from microclimates all over the Napa Valley. The Petite Sirah brings a rich color along with structured yet velvety, smooth tannins. This is a full-bodied, fruit-driven wine with rich and juicy flavors of dark black and red fruit along with satisfying notes of dark spice. Well-balanced with a long, warm finish.

This limited production of 70 cases spent 18 months on 40% new French oak. The aging potential is 7-10 years. 

Jamieson Ranch Vineyards is named after an historic rancher who helped to settle the Napa Valley. Today, we pay homage to the rich ranching tradition of the Napa Valley through the names of our wines. The name Versada means to traverse or travel, and we honor the ranchers, cowboys and horses that traveled to the American West and played an important role in making the Napa Valley what it is today. Like those horses, our Versada wines are commanding and elegant.

Lots of darker berry fruits, chocolate, Asian spices, and dried soil notes dominate the bouquet, and it's rounded and has a wonderful core of sweet fruit, ripe tannins, and a great finish. It's an impressive 2017 that's well worth seeking out." - Jeb Dunnuck
Food Pairing Notes
The rich, juicy flavors and structured, yet velvety tannins ensure this wine stands up well with rich and flavorful meals. Grilled dark meats with peppery sauces are a favorite. Hard cheeses are perfect for dessert.
