The 2007 Napa Valley Rocca Bad Boy Red is a great Bordeaux style blend and a solid effort worth seeking out.

This blend kicks it hard and will make you sit up and take notice. It has soft and supple tannins paired with big bold flavors.

The aromas are red fruit fading to black; flavors exude quality new American oak rendering vanilla and spice. Broad culinary applications (hold back delicate seafood and citrus sauces).

I would certainly suggest this for any up and coming “We have a great Wine list Restaurant”. This wine is a standalone, no food needed sipper that really shines in that role and could make the top of the list on any wine by the glass list.

Look for this one when you have an audience to impress. Dr’s you have a pulse. Hold back the paddle and keep pouring the wine. ~Marc Hinton
