Blend: 60% Cabernet Franc, 40% Merlot
Vintage production: 497 cases
The Sugarloaf Mountain Vineyard Proprietary Red 2021 is a divine blend of Cabernet Franc and Merlot from a heralded site on the cooler, far southeast hillsides of Napa Valley. With beautifully expressive aromatics of mulberry, damson, black tea, and dark chocolate, leading to a palate of stunning richness, gorgeous tannins, and the purest of mineral finishes, this is one of Russell’s finest Sugarloafs to date. 98-100pts sees The Wine Advocate in agreement!
