    Winemaker Notes

    This wine is a vibrant ruby. Initially, the wine entices with a rich,warm cherry and chocolate aroma embroidered with charred oak.As the wine evolves, aromas of hay and blueberry intermingle withan earthy note reminiscent of sun baked soil. The wine intriguesthe palate with luscious red fruit notes and a firm structure. Thiswine finished with a compelling zip of acidity driving the fruitforward finish.

    This wine is a proprietary blend comprised primarily of Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Merlot.

    The vineyards just inland from the Sacramento River Delta, along the deep banks of the Sacramento River, comprise the Clarksburg AVA. The River Delta channels in cold air and fog from the Pacific Ocean creating a cooling effect in this area. Warm summer days quickly change to chilly evenings and make a great environment for grape growing. While a range of grape varieties grow here, Chenin blanc stands out the most, distinguishing itself for the appellation.

    The Clarksburg Wine Growers and Vintners Association, made up of nearly 50 grower members and over a dozen wineries, has been working since the late 1980s to promote the high quality wine of its region.

    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 enhance balance or create complexity, lending different layers of flavors and aromas. For example, a variety that creates a fruity and full-bodied wine would do well combined with one that is naturally high in acidity and tannins. 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.
