Beauzeaux Red Wine 2005
The 2005 vintage began with an unusually wet and cool spring. August brought heat and a cool autumn followed. Harvest was completed just before Thanksgiving, one of the longest harvests on record. The 2005 vintage shows exceptional quality, and we expect it will be one of the best of the decade.
Blend: 68% Zinfandel, 21% Syrah, 3% Petite Sirah, 3% Charbono, 2% Lagrein, 1% Valdiguie, 1% Grenache, 1% Tempranillo.
This is the wine to reach for when friends show up for pizza. Ripe red and black berry characters with jammy pie flavors and some black pepper to boot make it rich and hearty enough to stand up to your best baby back ribs. And the capper? Nothing but a screw cap would do.
