Luke Donald Collection (LDC) Napa Valley 2012 Red Wine

Luke Donald Collection (LDC) Napa Valley 2012 Red Wine, $14.99-$45.99, 88 points, poured core black grading a deep purple/red toward the broad clear wine ring and moderately heavy draping.
Profuse dusty black fruit aromas nuanced by floral and herbal notes with a hint of cocoa and loam were rich.
Full-bodied with good acidity and mellow tannins showed a plumy flavor profile with whispers of cola, truffle, and cherry fruit.
Finished long on the plum and truffle flavors, pepper spice, mint, and an appropriate 14.4% alcohol.
Varietals were 43% Merlot, 43% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc, and 4% Petit Verdot (Bordeaux-styled).

  1. When did this Luke Donald become so important that he warrants his own collection?

    1. VG: I'm often obtuse, don't mean to be, but I'm not sure what you mean; at any rate, not a wine I'd pay almost $50 for! $15 works!
