    Winemaker Notes

    2010 was a good vintage that yielded good sugars and resulted in balanced acidity with sweet tannins. The 2010 Vina Sastre Ribera del Duero shows bright red fruit with notes of mushrooms and toast. On the palate, the wine is soft and accessible, with a pleasant fruity aftertaste.

    Vina Sastre
    Hermanos Sastre is a family-run winery located in the heart of the Ribera del Duero, in the town of La Horra. The DO of Ribera del Duero is located in the mountainous northern-central Spain. It's high alpine valleys of the Duero River provide respite from the hot Spanish climate and provide a long ripening season from the cool nights. Pedro Sastre is the winemaker in charge of overseeing all operations of the winery. The winery produces a range of wines -- from a "Tinto", with 7 months barrel age to Gran Reservas, all from Tinto del Pais (Tempranillo) grape. They also own a unique vineyard site called Pago Santa Cruz. Pago Santa Cruz has vineyards over sixty years old planted by Pedro's grandfather. In exceptional vintages, Pago Santa Cruz appears under its own label.

    Napa Valley

    One of the world's most highly regarded regions for wine production and tourism, the Napa Valley is the AVA that brought worldwide recognition to California winemaking. 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 lands were scooped up and vines were planted throughout the county. A number of wineries emerged, from large conglomerates to small boutiques to cult classics. Cabernet Sauvignon is definitely the grape of choice here, with many winemakers also focusing on Bordeaux blends. Whites are usually Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc.

    Within the Napa Valley lie many smaller sub-AVAs that lend even more character specifics to the wines. Furthest south is Carneros, followed by Yountville, Oakville & Rutherford. Above those two are St.-Helena and the valley's newest AVA, Calistoga. These areas are situated on the valley floor and are known for creating rich, smooth Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Chardonnay. There are a few mountain regions as well, nestled on the slopes overlooking the valley AVAs. Those include Howell Mountain, Stags Leap District, and Mt. Veeder. Wines from the mountain regions are often more structured and firm, benefiting from more time in the bottle to evolve and soften.

    Other Red Blends

    With hundreds of red grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to create complex wines with many different layers of flavors and aromas, or to create more balanced wines. For example, a variety that is soft and full-bodied may be combined with one that is lighter with naturally high acidity. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
