Winemaker's Notes

So welcome to 2003, which ushered in a long and warm, not hot, end of the season that fully ripened the grapes and allowed the fruit to be harvested in an orderly manner. The resulting wine is a beautiful bright purple, full to the rim from its dark center. Compared to the ultra-bold 2002 REDS, the current version is downright classic and restrained on the nose, with an core of intriguing licorice and Chinese spices. The mouth is pure warm, dark plums, supported by a refreshing acidity that makes it great with hearty dishes. I just enjoyed it with a basil and tomato pizza: delicious!

Blend is 60% 80 years old zinfandel , 30% carignane of a whopping 117 years, and 10% younger petite sirah. Armed with a new label and screwcap, REDS is now even more a Wine for the People. The Chairman would have approved!
