Right Bank Blend

Red Wine
Napa Valley

5 cases produced

Tetra is a four-varietal blend that is all about "Left Bank" style. Every year, Bill Hill's Broken Rock Vineyard produces standout Cabernet Sauvignon that dominates Tetra's four-part blend; Merlot, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc add complexity, depth and spice, but Cabernet is king! The richness and depth of Broken Rock's 2010 Merlot and Cabernet Franc rivaled the Cabernet Sauvignon and allowed us to take a decidedly "right" turn for Premiere Napa Valley. Our Right Bank Blend is a Pomerol-inspired blend with velvety Merlot and the spice of Cabernet Franc in the driver's seat. A decidedly different twist on the "Left Bank Tetra," our "Right Bank Blend" is only for PNV.
