Vintage 2015
Wine Type Red
Varietal Red Table Wine
Region Napa Valley
Winemaker Christophe Paubert
Each  year,  winemaker  Christophe  Paubert  finds  a  unique  surprise–a  varietal  expression  enhanced  through  exceptional  terroir  and  the  distinctive  weather  of  the  growing  season.  For  the  2015  vintage,  Christophe was inspired by the exceptional Malbec, Petite Sirah, Syrah and Viognier that nature offered him. This combination of varietals are very rarely blended together as they are not from the same traditional French growing regions associated with a classic Bordeaux assemblage, or a typical Rhone blend. 

Tasting Notes

Christophe  was  inspired  by  the  aromatics  offered  in  these  varietals  and  the  unique  floral  expression  that  they  presented  when  blended together to create his 2105 Muse. The Malbec contributes vibrant dark berry fruit characteristics and spice, while the Petite  Sirah adds deep blue and black fruit notes along with rich tannin and  deep color intensity. Finally, the Syrah adds a layer of elegance and finesse, and the Viognier wraps it all together with delicate floral notes.
