Hertelendy Signature Mountain Red Wine Blend 2015 / 750 ml.

Item#: 91666

JD9595 pts. - Jeb Dunnuck - December 29, 2017
A blend of 81% Merlot, 12% Cabernet Sauvignon, and the balance Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc, and Malbec that’s packed in a huge, embossed bottle, the 2015 Signature Mountain Blend offers a killer perfume of plums, blueberries, vanilla oak and damp earth. It’s sexy, opulent and rounded on the palate, and is reminiscent of a top-flight Pomerol. With sweet tannin and a big midpalate, it’s approachable today, yet should be at its finest from 2020–2035. (Jeb Dunnuck)

Small producer Ralph Hertelendy blends 81% Merlot with smaller percentages of other red Bordeaux grapes from a variety of sites across the valley in this well-made, complex wine. Char, smoked meat, juicy currant and cranberry are set against tight compressed tannins and intense oak, suggesting more time in bottle. Enjoy best 2025–2030.

A deep purple-black colored blend of 81% Merlot, 12% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Petit Verdot, 3% Cabernet Franc and 1% Malbec, the 2015 Signature Mountain Blend has a spicy plums and baked cherries nose with blackberry compote, dusty earth and incense hints plus dried leaves and cedar. Soft and spicy in the medium to full-bodied mouth, it finishes just a little hollow and abrupt.

Where It's From

District / Napa Valley

View more wines from Napa Valley

Napa Valley is California's -- and America's -- most famous and celebrated wine district. Located north of San Francisco, Napa Valley is most famous for its world-class Cabernets and Chardonnays. The region's acclaim officially took off following a 1976 tasting in Paris when renowned judges chose a Napa Chardonnay and Cabernet over top French wines made from the same grapes.

Most wineries in the region produce either a Chardonnay or a Cabernet, and usually it's both. Sauvignon Blanc and Zinfandel are also grown with success in Napa Valley. You'll likely recognize the names of some of the viticultural areas within Napa Valley, including St. Helena, Stag's Leap and Carneros.

Region / California

View more wines from California

When it comes to US wine production, California is King. California wines account for almost 90% of all wines produced in the United States each year, and is home to the most celebrated vineyards and producers in the country. California is probably best known for its world-famous Cabernets and Chardonnays, many of which hail from its two most-acclaimed AVAs, Napa Valley and Sonoma County. Other prominent grapes used in California wines include Merlot, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah, and Zinfandel (which California made popular).

Country / United States

View more wines from United States

The United States now ranks fourth in the world in wine production behind, France, Italy, and Spain. While about 90% of that wine is produced in California, other states like Oregon, New York, and Washington are establishing themselves as prime spots for wine production, as well. Just about any variety of wine can be found in production somewhere in the United States.

RP9797 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 28th Feb 2018
Composed of 90% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Franc and 3% Malbec, the 2015 La Muse sports a very deep garnet-purple color, leaping from the glass with exuberant crème de cassis, blueberry pie and licorice notes plus suggestions of Indian spices, dark chocolate, menthol, sautéed herbs and potpourri. Full-bodied, rich and seductive in the mouth, it delivers tons of black and blue fruit preserves flavors, accented by exotic spices, framed with velvety tannins and finishing on a persistent earthy/mineral note. 3,900 cases were made.
JS9797 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Thursday, November 22, 2018
This is dense yet agile young red with aromas and flavors of blackberries, black olives and black truffles. Full-bodied, layered and rich. Pretty ripe and melted tannins. Top merlot. Drink or hold.
VN9595 pts. - Vinous - Apr 2018
The 2015 La Muse is developing beautifully. Ripe, ample and voluptuous in the glass, the 2015 exudes character. Even with all of its obvious intensity, the 2015 has quite a bit of freshness to balance out the ripe, racy Merlot-based fruit. Super-ripe red cherry, plum, mocha and spice notes build into the racy, inviting finish.
SP9393 pts. - Wine Spectator - May 7, 2020
Fine-grained, featuring muscular dark currant and plum flavors, flanked by mineral and black pepper accents. Firm tannins show on the finish, with bittersweet chocolate notes. Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Malbec. Drink now through 2023. 3,792 cases made. (Kim Marcus)
