Luke Donald Collection Red, Napa Valley

Luke Donald Collection Red, Napa Valley

Hand-crafted in a traditional European style, this is a blend of near equal quantities of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, with about 10% Cabernet Franc and a pinch of Petit Verdot. The wine has its origins in a longstanding friendship between top-ranked pro-golfer, Luke Donald, and fine wine professional, Bill Terlato, of the family-owned Terlato Wine Group. Whether on the golf course or in the vineyard, both men share a similar passion for excellence. Aged for about 16 months in French oak barrels, the wine displays structured tannins, intertwined with vibrant flavours of black berries and subtle spice notes, hints of espresso bean, liquorice and wild berry fruit appear on the long, supple finish.
