Today In Wine: World’s End Wavelength Red Blend 2010 ($70)
“High-toned amidst its luxurious mouthfeel, it’s well-developed with plenty of structure and mellowed tannins. The herbal element is underplayed, with the tobacco more prominent.” – Wine Enthusiast

The World’s End is a culmination of over 15 years of winemaking experience in Saint Emilion, Bordeaux and overseas, by Jonathan Maltus and his team. Their ultimate aim is to surpass their Estate in Bordeaux in offering three levels of wine: ESTATE wines from selected parcels of vines acquired in the top AVA’s, Single Vineyard wines from the valley, ridge and mountain regions, and Varietal wines that reflect the overall diversity of the Napa Valley wine region as a whole. A challenge the team looks forward to with an unwavering passion.
The highly acclaimed, 2010 World’s End ‘Wavelength’ red blend, is filled with floral, herbal, blackberry, coffee and brown sugar aromas and flavors. A delicious Bordeaux-style wine with depth and multi-layered flavors that continue to linger well after you’ve had a sip. Robert Parker, described the wine as, “a ‘visionary, self-styled revolutionary’ and the ‘English winemaking guru,’ Jonathan Maltus cut his teeth in the fine wine business during the ‘garage revolution’ in Saint Emilion, France during the 1990’s. Chateau Teyssier, a Saint Emilion Grand Cru Estate, has expanded from 14 to 125 acres, into one of the main players of Saint Emilion (capturing three 5 Stars from Decanter with the 2010 vintage – including its flagship wine, Le Dôme).”
Even though this wine is a little pricier than most of the wines we typically review, you won’t be sorry to have splurged on a bottle of the Wavelength red blend, in fact, we think you’ll be floored!
