Review: 2016 Two Range Red Wine Napa Valley

The 2016 release of Two Range (a sub-brand of Rutherford Wine Company) — a big mystery blend that includes merlot, cabernet sauvignon, pinot noir, and petit verdot, among other grapes — remains plenty fruity (compare to 2015), but its blown-out berry notes are tempered here. The wine still veers to the sweet side — with vanilla and grape soda notes evident — but a bit of tannin helps round things out. There’s more of a floral element this time around, violets more than anything else, which helps to add nuance to the experience. A much more approachable wine than last year’s model.
