The Vice Tri Blend Napa Valley 2017 | Unforgettable Red Blend
The Vice Tri Blend Napa Valley 2017 presents a deep, dense, dark purple color. Aromas jump out of the glass led by steeped violets, mulberry pie, and cocoa with a hint of graphite. The mouthfeel is balanced and beautifully orchestrated with rich concentration and elegant tannins. An excellent example of these three varieties coexisting and creating an unforgettable wine. Drink now – 2026.
Overflowing with fruit density and full-bodied complexity. So, the key to The Vice Tri Blend Napa Valley 2017 is in its supreme blend of grapes—which typically amplify 100-point Cabernets. Known for their single-vineyard, NDA-protected Napa Valley sites, this opulent blend from three of the winery’s most prized sources proves how the sum can be even greater than its parts—at least in everything but price. That’s what makes a powerhouse like this possible for $35.
Malek Amrani and Vance Rose
The Vice’s owner, Malek Amrani, and his uber-talented winemaker, Vance Rose, have a keen eye for untapped potential. Recognizing gorgeous grapes that are usually blended into obscurity by pricey Cab-dominant flagships, the duo snapped up the tiny percentage of Petite Sirah and Cab Franc that they managed to get their hands on and flipped the script.
Rose—whose impressive résumé includes Rosemount in Australia, Donum in Carneros and Ehlers in St. Helena—treat these reds like the high-elevation superstars that they are, capturing all of their mineral verve and impeccable balance to complement the Malbec’s lush, juicy black and blue fruit.
