Winemaker Notes

This wine exhibits a deep purple hue, with initial wafts of dark black fruit and cocoa aromas. A rich core of cassis and chocolate excite the palate and the long finish features notes of tobacco and spice. The velvety mouthfeel we consistently seek is very apparent in this bottling. With tannins already well integrated, the wine is drinking exceptionally well now and we expect a long ageing potential.

Blend: 94% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Sangiovese, 2% Petite Verdot

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
RP 95
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Composed of 94% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Sangiovese and 2% Petit Verdot aged for 20 months in new French oak, the 2015 Proprietary Red Wine has a deep garnet-purple color and nose of crème de cassis, baked blackberries and chocolate box with hints of menthol, Chinese five spice and cardamom. Medium to full-bodied, it explodes with gregarious black fruit and exotic spice flavors, with a velvety texture and great freshness, finishing long and lively.
JD 93
Jeb Dunnuck
Checking in as a blend of 94% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Sangiovese and 2% Petit Verdot, the 2015 Artful Red Wine offers a fresh, focused, structured style that's going to benefit from short-term cellaring. Possessing pure notes of crème de cassis, blueberries, violets, and graphite, it's medium to full-bodied, focused and straight on the palate, with building tannin. It lacks the suppleness of the 2014s, yet shows the hallmark focus, purity and concentration of the 2015 vintage.
CG 92
Connoisseurs' Guide
Starting out with a deep and very rich nose and building positively from there, this big, but very well-balanced wine sports a wealth of fully ripe, slightly juicy, black currant fruit with a complexing mix of loamy soil, woodsy spice and lots of sweet oak lending added interest at every stop. Its nicely-fit structural tannins provide just the right amount of tactile grip without being overly abrasive, and, while it is a surprisingly expressive Cabernet given its age, it is not near ready for prime time and guarantees to reward a half-dozen years of patience.

Bacio Divino, California
Bacio Divino Winery Image
For 25 years and longer, I've had a wine glass molded to my right hand. Today, my head has a permanent tilt from holding my very prominent nose over the alluring aromas and beckoning colors of many of the world's great wines. If I haven't tried every one, I've certainly made it a passion to attempt to taste of them all. Over this third of a lifetime, I've come to know and respect many great wine makers around our little world, and now clearly understand the relationship between an individual's character and his wine. You've read or heard about many of these people - men and women who are born to search for perfection, who scowl at the notion of compromise. These same people channel their character into their wine - their individuality, their uniqueness, their propensity to create rather than to plagiarize. Eminent character seems kindred to noteworthy wines...

Being so motivated, I longed to create a distinctive, noble wine. In the California tradition of working with the new to improve the traditional, I looked to achieve a way of broadening the distinctly majestic flavors and aromas of the king of Napa Valley's varietals, Cabernet Sauvignon. Over the years I've had the opportunity to experiment with various lots of Cabernet, and I eventually settled on the hillside fruit from Ahollinger vineyards in the Mount Veeder area. This vineyard produces a bold and expressive, yet elegant wine. In 1992, we discovered the Sangiovese fruit of Cal Showket in the Oakville appellation, and were literally overwhelmed by the intensity of what resulted in our first crush in 1993. To embellish the color and acid levels of the Sangiovese, we crushed and macerated this fruit with one and a half tons of the best Petite Syrah fruit I had ever sampled.

As time aged each of these wines, and molded their individual character, I was able to determine a blend that married the elegant, yet rich and softly oaked Cabernet with the Sangiovese's long and linear tannins, at the same time elevating the cherry, berry Sangiovese fruit to a pronounced level. The resulting wine showed that a whole could be greater than it's individual parts. And so...'Bacio Divino', a divine kiss, was born.

Red Wine

Undoubtedly proving its merit over and over, Napa Valley is a now a leading force in the world of prestigious red wine regions. Though Cabernet Sauvignon dominates Napa Valley, other red varieties certainly thrive here. Important but often overlooked include Merlot and other Bordeaux varieties well-regarded on their own as well as for their blending capacities. Very old vine Zinfandel represents an important historical stronghold for the region and Pinot noir is produced in the cooler southern parts, close to the San Pablo Bay.

Perfectly situated running north to south, the valley acts as a corridor, pulling cool, moist air up from the San Pablo Bay in the evenings during the hot days of the growing season, which leads to even and slow grape ripening. Furthermore the valley claims over 100 soil variations including layers of volcanic, gravel, sand and silt—a combination excellent for world-class red wine production.
