Muddy Arch Red Wine 2018
Muddy Arch Winery is located in historic Napa Valley and winemaker Chris Leonard has strong relationships with grape growers in Napa and surrounding wine regions. This red blend is a unique combination of three varietals, each picked a week or two earlier to make sure that they do not become over-ripe and sweet. Chris Leonard wanted this wine to be true to the varietal characteristics of the grapes and not a high-alcohol “fruit bomb” red wine often associated with American Zinfandel-based wines. This red blend is Zinfandel (44%), Carignane (32%), and Petit Verdot (24%). The result is a beautifully aromatic and flavorful red wine, combining an old-world approach to winemaking with the terroir of California.
