Winemaker's Notes:

The 2009 vintage is medium-bodied and balanced with an enticing nose of black cherry, blackberry and nuances of vanilla spice. On the palate, rich dark fruits of plum, black currant, cassis and cherry combine wine well-integrated tannins followed by a pleasant, lingering finish.

This rich, fruit-forward wine calls for succulent, flavorful dishes such as grilled steak with frites, creamy blue cheeses, pepper-rubbed pork chops, duck breast with grilled plums - or even a juicy burger with caramelized onions.

About Black Stallion Winery:

Located on the grounds of a historic equestrian center, Black Stallion Winery is the latest addition to the distinguished collection of wineries in the Oak Knoll District of Napa Valley. Each of the varietals we produce is handcrafted and carefully blended from small vineyard lots. Each lot is fermented and aged separately in our cellar until just prior to bottling when we carefully blend these lots together to achieve wines of balance with layers of complex flavors. Black Stallion Winery is dedicated to crafting high quality wines that are elegant and distinctive yet approachable.
