Name Tuck Beckstoffer Mad Hatter 2016 (ID# 3657)
Varietal Red Blend
Region USA: CA - Napa Valley
Notes "Plenty of ripe blueberry and plum aromas here with a swathe of violet-like florals, too. The palate is succulent and fleshy with a long array of plush, supple tannins that carry ample depth and rich, fresh fruit to the finish. A blend of 48 per cent cabernet sauvignon, 40 per cent merlot, and 12 per cent petite sirah." (James Suckling)

Additional Notes

"The deep garnet-purple colored 2016 Red Blend Mad Hatter is composed of 48% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot and 12% old-vine Petite Sirah. It sings of crushed red and black cherries, warm cassis and blueberry compote with suggestions of forest floor, camphor and Indian spices. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is well-poised with chewy, approachable tannins and a spicy kick to the finish." (Wine Advocate) "This wine with its extracted black fruit and oak aromas and flavors are rich and long from start to finish. Its ultra-rich textures should pair well with a sausage and mushroom pizza." (Wilfred Wong,
