‘Modern Napa Valley Cabernet’ is perfect gift to spark romance
Chief Blonde’s Remarks: At a recent Ladies “card party” (yea…like we EVER play cards), a group of women over 45 had the opportunity to sample FUSE wine. While not sommeliers (a wine expert), we certainly have drank a few bottles of wine in our day. Our favorite is always red wine, FUSE being a red wine, we were all game to try it! In between our make-up application lessons, great food, and massages (by an over 45 year old woman), we sipped on FUSE wine. We all agreed it was perfect for the occasion–light, not lingering, and didn’t interfere with the varied foods that we were eating. $20.00 Retail for a lovely spring like bottle of red, really great for Valentines!
What the Company says: As Valentine’s Day nears, men and women are faced with the age-old question about the best gift to help send sparks flying without being trite. This year, a ‘Modern Napa Valley Cabernet’ may do just that. FUSE is one of Napa Valley’s newest wines (meaning most valentines won’t have seen it). The 2006 blend adds Syrah, a Rhone varietal, as opposed to a traditional Bordeaux varietal (earning points for being an original) and the retail price for this sophisticated, big, impressive Cabernet is $20 (perhaps the most sophisticated gift on the market that won’t break the bank). The Cabernet and Syrah “play well together” creating a spicy flavor profile that offers an expanded range of aromas and flavors compared with traditional Cabernet Sauvignon, and it may inspire couples to do the same. A total of 6,000 cases of the 2006 Napa Valley Cabernet have been produced. Tasting notes and winemaker’s comments are available at www.fusewine.com
The name FUSE derives from the significant percentage with which the Cabernet has been blended with Syrah (25 percent), adding an exotic, spicy twist to the blend, designed to ‘ignite the senses.’ The unique blend of Cabernet and Syrah is described as ‘a Modern Napa Valley Cabernet’ but the concept is hardly new, with the Bordelaise having (secretly) utilized this particular blending practice to add color and personality, particularly in the 1800s. The nose combines the sweetness of raspberry and violet with the spiciness of pepper, clove and tobacco, while in the palate the lush currant and plum fruit flavors balance with vanilla, cedar and nutmeg that integrates oak and tannin. The brand tag line is ‘A Cabernet and Syrah explosion that will ignite your palate!’
