2016 Eddie, Red Wine, Napa Valley

Eddie Bratton was not only the original founder of our garage, but also a pretty damn famous Indian Motorcycle racer, daredevil and a hell of a mechanic. While uncovering a few old photographs from Eddie's racing days, we thought it was a fine time to pay tribute to him. Eddie is an exhilarating Bordeaux blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot and Malbec that smells like lush cassis, vanilla, cigar smoke and worn leather. This wild thing is balanced and textured, bursting with flavors of vanilla, coffee dusted truffles and mocha. 

After his days of racing and hell-raising ended, you could find Eddie in his Calistoga garage, wrenching away on his prized '47 Indian Chief bike until he retired in the early '80s. If you asked anybody around town about an old motorcycle mechanic, they knew you meant Eddie. There was no one better than our longtime comrade and collaborator, Shawn Barber, to paint us a collage of the old photos. One shows Eddie breaking speed records on a desolate beach on the central coast and another of him leading the pack at the Catalina Island Grand Prix. He perfectly captured Eddie's grit and zest for life that continues to inspire us.

Great bold flavor with a nice finish that lingers just enough.

This is far and away my favorite red blend - it's bold and deep flavor is great with a meal or on its own. The artwork is always a conversation starter - there is not a bottle yet that we have not enjoyed from Tank!

Dream Police is the best Tank wine I've ever had. This is a very close second. Lots a rich flavors and just a great time drinking it.

I was at a tasting for Tank Garage and this was about the fourth one in the tasting and they definitely saved the best for last (on the tasting list, but then my host pulled out some more bottles). All of the wines I tasted were great, but the bold flavor of this one really took me by surprise and I was very happy to get to take some home.

Love the big bold flavors of this wine. After several different bottles of wine with some steaks the other night we opened this bottle of Eddie from Tank Garage and it stole the show. So much so we had to order some more.
