The Purple Heart – no honor better symbolizes the bravery, determination and selflessness of the military men and women serving our country. It is this most noble medal that inspired this exceptional, purple-hearted blend of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon grown in America’s greatest wine region – The Napa Valley. Not only does this wine serve as a worthy tribute to our brave heroes, it also allows us to give something back. Purple Heart Wine Co. is proud to make an annual donation to the Purple Heart Foundation, an organization dedicated to serving the unmet needs of military men, women and families. Our military personnel make huge sacrifices. When crafting this wine, no sacrifices were made. It is an uncompromising wine made under the close stewardship of the Peter Mondavi Sr. Family, whose patriarch is a proud veteran of World War II. Join us as we lift a glass and pay tribute to our brave military heroes and thank them for their profound contributions.
Purple Heart has aromas of mulberries, plums and blackberries with hints of black licorice. Dark ruby and opaque in appearance, this medium-bodied beauty is lushly textured with notes of red and black fruits and hints of cardamom. Seamless across the palate, the wine has a long, velvety mouthfeel and balanced tannins. It will drink beautifully upon release and gain complexity and grace over 4-5 years.
