Wine review: The Scotto Cellars NAPA by N.A.P.A. Michael’s Red Napa Valley Red Table 

The Scotto Cellars NAPA by N.A.P.A. Michael’s Red Napa Valley Red Table Wine is an interesting blend of 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon, 2009 Sangiovese, 2009 Barbera, 2010 Syrah, 2008 Merlot and 2007 Merlot from Napa Valley, California. Think of this one as an all- star cast of fermented grapes. According to the Reverse Wine Snob, “NAPA begins with pleasant aromas of cherry, black cherry, licorice, cedar and leather. The wine is quite tasty with similar flavors to the nose plus a nice amount of spice and some brown sugar and molasses. It ends dry with lingering caramel flavors.” These words typically describe any of these California cabernet, sangiovese, syrah, or merlot wines, and they certainly apply to this all- star mix of wines. This one tastes better at room temperature than it does when chilled. 4/5 stars.
