Italics Sixteen Appellations Napa Valley Red Blend // 2 Bottles
Italics Winegrowers is a luxury producer of Bordeaux varietals and blends from Napa Valley. Helmed by proprietors Ken, Mike & Taylor Martin, they employ both estate and négociant winemaking to the same end: to highlight the best of what Napa Valley has to offer. The brand began over a decade ago with the launch of Thirteen, a blend of wines created from vineyards in each of Napa’s 13 sub-appellations. Over the years as Napa continued to subdivide, Thirteen became Fourteen, Fourteen became Fifteen, and Fifteen became Sixteen.
While searching for a vineyard to represent Napa’s 16th AVA (Coombsville) they discovered their new estate home. Here, on 73 acres in the foothills of the Vacas southeast of Napa, they constructed a winery, complete with 16,000 sq. ft. of caves and stunning views from almost every perch, with the aim to create what can only be described as wine bliss.
As winegrowers, Italics chose their name because of the belief that the best wines are a revelation of place. A place that can be as small as a vineyard block or as large as an entire AVA. If that place has something to say − a nuance you can appreciate − Italics will go to great lengths to draw it out. To italicize it.
The 2015 Sixteen Appellations is a rich and supple example of Italic's signature blend. Fruit forward flavor profile with hints of currants and rhubarb to round out the mid-palate. Each appellation is vinified and aged separately. The components are brought together before bottling in a perfect marriage of all Sixteen Appellations. Enjoy some now but hold on to a few bottles to see how this beauty evolves over time.
