Acumen Mountainside Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend 2015
Region: Napa Valley
This full-bodied wine starts with fragrant aromas of black cherries, English roses, mocha, sweet earth, and fresh blackberry pie. On the palate, we find mouth-coating flavors of blueberries, Santa Rosa plums, and baking spices with a pleasant grip of ripe tannins coupled with notes of toffee, rhubarb compote, fresh sage and cigar box on the long and pleasant finish.

Behind Acumen is the reknowned Chappellet winemaker Phillip Titus. Based in Atlas Peak, this is a true mountain fruit cab-based blend. Intense, complex, rich mocha, fresh cedar and grippy tannins fill each glass.
