The 2005 Pininfarina Napa Valley Vino Rosso is a great expression of the character of the Napa Valley. The aromas start off with a hint of vanilla and nutmeg spice, which quickly gives way to black currant and raspberry aromas which meld with background aromas of ripe blueberries and a hint of violets. In the mouth, the first impression is of concentrated fruit, particularly black currants and blueberries. The tannins are ripe, sweet and chewy, giving the wine a very generous depth and structure, without harshness. This balance of fruit and ripe, fat tannins is one of the hallmarks of the best Napa Valley wines. The finish is smooth and elegant, with enough tannin to suggest good ageability.
The 2005 Vino Rosso is perfectly accessible for current enjoyment, however, it will really start to show its prime between 2010 and 2012. For those with the proper cellaring conditions, and a generous bit of patience, the ultimate peak for this wine will probably be between 2017 and 2021.
For food pairings, try something based on game fowl; such as a duck confit, or slow roasted pheasant with a demi-glace. Another great combination is the traditional Milanese veal osso buco, served with a saffron risotto.

"Feathered garnet hue. Flinty, dusty aromas with secondary raspberry notes. Racy and crisp with a peppery nuance attached to the tart berry fruit. Youthful finish with fine tannins, crisp acids and drying mineral accents."
The Wine News
"Made solidly in the modern cult style of fruity ripeness, softness and rich oak shadings, this inaugural red from Gary Heck is a Cab-based Bordeaux blend with a splash of Sangiovese. It has complicated layers of blackberries, cherries, currants and milk chocolate. Quite delicious in primary fruit flavors, it could well be an ager."

It's hard not to think of Napa Valley when thinking of California wines. The region is, after all, the one that brought world recognition to California wine making. The area was settled by a few choice wine families in the 1960's who bet that the wines of the area would grow and flourish. They were right. The Napa wine industry really took off in the 1980's, when vineyard...Read More About Napa Valley
