Tasting Notes: Our 2009 Napa Valley Red Wine is deep ruby in color and displays
aromas of ripe blueberry, dark cherry, cassis and vanilla. On the palate, flavors of blueberries and
dark cherry combined with hints of oak spices that coat the palate. The soft
tannins and sweet oak balance lead to a long and lingering finish.
Winemaking Notes: This unique red wine blend is from sites throughout Napa Valley with grapes harvested at optimal maturity, then de-stemmed and gently crushed into open-top stainless steel fermenters, at warm temperatures, to fully extract color and flavor. The fermented wine then was racked to a combination of French and American oak for aging of which 18% was new. During the aging process the wine lots were tasted throughout and blended back together just before bottling.
