Fruit-forward, smooth and balanced, Singer Cellars wines are Bordeaux varietals and blends produced from Napa Valley grapes.

cellar notes
We practice the old-world winemaking method of bâtonnage, or stirring the lees. This process enhances the wine’s structure, gives it extra body, increases the aromatic complexity, and provides a velvety rich mouthfeel.

Each wine ages for up to 20 months in French oak barrels. Between 30% is new oak, with the balance in used French oak barrels. Drinkable upon release, our wines benefit from additional cellar aging, which allows the wine’s complexities to develop and reveal themselves.

tasting notes
As a devoted fan of Cheval Blanc and other elite wines from the famous Right Bank of the Bordeaux region in France, winemaker Barry Singer has a passion for working with premium Merlot and Cabernet Franc grapes grown in Napa Valley. For this reason, the new 2014 Rhapsody Red Wine is a blend of equal parts of both of these specialty varietals.

With an attractive crimson red hue, the wine opens up with fragrant aromas of bright red fruits, leather, sage, and allspice. In the glass, the dazzling notes of ripe plum, cherry, blueberry, and cassis are further lifted with lovely accents of cocoa, clove, cardamom and forest floor, balanced tannins, and a long, engaging finish.
