ONDULÉ Esmé Red Blend, Napa Valley

 

WHY WE LOVE IT:

  • Corrutage - we had to look that one up - and delighted we were with the wines undulating shape and folds. More below about the name. 
  • Soft tannins make it delicious now, but will be even better with age
  • 2014 produced high quality fruit with depth of flavor

WINEMAKER: Jason Holman: Holman Cellars, Uncharted, Favia, Ovid

WHAT WE TASTED:  This is a big red! Black currant, blackberry and dark chocolate intermix with intoxicating sweet tobacco aromas. Opening dark plum notes develop into a mild leathery finish. The presence of the Alicante Bouschet imparts a beautiful dark amethyst hue.

AVA DESIGNATED: Coombsville, Napa Valley

WHAT WE PAIRED:

  • Roast lamb, braised short ribs
  • Beef brisket
  • Hard cheese platter, grilled veggies

The passion project of a 4th generation California family, Ondulé combines old-world style with new-world organic grapes to produce timeless and approachable wines. The 4th gen family has made corrugated boxes for the wine industry for many years thus a fitting fanciful name for their namesake.  Enjoy.
