Levy & McClellan Napa Red 2015
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
|Brand||Levy & McClellan|
“Bob Levy, long-time winemaker at Harlan Estate, and his wife, Martha McClellan, who has done incredible consulting work at such top-flight wineries as Sloan and Blankiet, have their own small project whose results to date have been magnificent wines. Although expensive, no one will complain about the quality in the bottle as they are clearly Napa Valley first-growths.”
Founded in 1999 by husband and wife duo, Bob Levy and Martha McClellan, Levy & McClellan is a collaborative effort that showcases wine of uncompromised quality and expression of their origin. Their portfolio releases among the highest priced red blends in Napa Valley, and each year the prices increase further. Levy & McClellan is entirely allocated, so the wines tend to be extremely difficult to find.
Station Plaza Wine
Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, the 2015 Proprietary Red is simply singing on the nose, revealing fragrant red and black currant notes plus hints of cinnamon stick, lavender, garrigue, forest floor and pencil shavings. The medium to full-bodied, delicately played palate is wonderfully spicy, with a quiet sophistication and decadence about it, sporting ripe, velvety tannins and seamless freshness, finishing with exotic undertones. Very classy wine! This was tasted as a barrel sample.
