Where is my John Wayne

Where is my prairie son

Where is my happy ending

Where have all the cowboys gone

Apparently, they are in Napa!  there is just something about a cowboy.  In this case, it’s the Bad Boy on the 2007 Bad Boy Red, by Rcca Family Vineyards in Napa.  This little baby is 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 33% Cabernet Franc, 17% Merlot, and 10% Petite Verdot, but the only thing that is Bordeaux about this is the blend itself.  This is a big, bold, California Cab, with blackberry and plum notes up front.  There is a lot of baking spice in the nose, and the palate has juicy blue & black fruit.  I also found leather, tobacco, notes of cinnamon, vanilla, and dense chewy blackberries followed by cherries.

The Bad Boy Red forms its base from the Cabernet Sauvignon grown at the Collineetta Vineyard stie in Coombsville, which departs from a classic Napa cab and makes it a great choice for a BBQ or a big steak.his wine is a from the Rocca vineyards in Yountville and Coombsville, and area that is well known for producing some of Napa’s best Cabernet.  The Coombsville climate is unique in Napa, since the fog from San Pablo bay breezes in and cools down the fruit.  The further east you go, the warmer you will get, which has a big impact on the terroir of the area.

This Bad Boy was sent to me by Rocca Vineyards.  i’m sorry to say he is married, and a doctor, and he was not in the bottle.  the juice was good though!

  1. We had that at the Houston Rodeo in the Wine Garden. I heard it was a good wine but it just didn't sell. Crazy Texans think that only Texas cowboy wine is good. Their Loss. Send ME a bottle! 🙂
