A Southern Napa Favorite
The 2014 Blend is made from 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Petite Verdot, 5% Syrah, and 5% Primitivo. The wine is dark purple to the rim, has massive ripe black fruit and rich spice aromas that hit you right away. Dense blackberry and mocha flavors dominate the palate, the mouth- filling texture is powerful, yet elegant and creamy all the way through. The finish goes on forever, with hints of smoke and grilled meat lingering at the end. Kay is versatile with all kinds of foods, but pairs best with big, bold flavors.
Lazio, Italy lies just south of Tuscany and encompasses Rome. Lazio is home to myriad vineyards and stunning hillsides, planted with ancient varieties like Nero Buono and Primitivo. Warm, dry days throughout the summer make it ideal for growing classic vines like Cabernet Sauvignon and Petite Verdot as well. The warm climate – similar to the Napa Valley – builds power and structure in the grapes, while its proximity to the sea brings cooling breezes in the afternoon to help maintain balance of acidity and preserve delicate aromatics in the fruit. Not only is it the perfect place for vines to produce stunning fruit, this magical location also serves as the summer getaway for the Pope – as it was for Caesar, back in the day.
