22 Black 2008

REGION – Napa Valley

AROMA – Black cherry, dark chocolate, oak, mint, redwood grove

TASTE – Fruit flavors mingle with tannings on the entry creating a sense of weight in the mouth. The texture develops with swirling into a strong mid-palate. Firm tannins on the finish indicate good aging potential.

Why 22? Well, there’s the atomic number of Titanium, the stealthy F-22 Raptor, Catch-22, and the number of bones in your head. Start it off with “19” and you have the year that brought us Eskimo Pie, the Hollywood Bowl, Jack Kerouac, Ava Gardner, Charles Schulz, and Kurt Vonnegut. There’s the fact that there are 22 balls in snooker, 22 players on a football field, and it’s the number of the NFL’s all-time leading rusher. There are also the classic roulette scenes in The Sting, Lost in America, and, of course, Casablanca. Number 22, one helluva number.
