Winemaker Notes

The 2010 Vintage Reserve is deeply layered and highly polished. Lush aromas of cassis and dark cocoa are laced with floral notes. The dense flavors of black currant, blackberry and dark chocolate shavings are seamlessly supported by the bold structure that gives the winetremendous depth, length and intensity. Remarkably round and smooth in its youth, this wine has the balance and concentration to ensure it will age gracefully up to 20 years from vintage.

RP 94
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
On the other hand, the 2010 Proprietary Red Vintage Reserve is among the finest wines I have tasted from this estate. A blend of Bordeaux varietals (I assume, but the exact grapes and percentages are not revealed), it reveals a rich, dense purple color in addition to lots of creme de cassis and licorice notes in a full-bodied, opulent, tasty format.

WE 94
Wine Enthusiast
Tremendous, with black currant, licorice, dark chocolate and sweet new oak flavors wrapped into deliriously rich, smooth tannins. Ready to drink now, it should develop for at least 10 years.
WS 91
Wine Spectator
Broad and expansive, with expressive flavors of mocha, espresso, dark berry and dried herb. Shows impressive depth and a plush character. Good length. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec.

Gundlach Bundschu approaches its vineyards, wines, business and the world with spirit, creativity and dedication to excellence. When you open a bottle of Gundlach Bundschu, you uncork not only the Estate's unique ability to produce profound wines, but also a rich, personal relationship between the Gundlach Bundschu family and the land on which the family lives.

Sonoma County

View all wine

Home to a diverse array of smaller AVAs with varied microclimates and soil types, Sonoma County has something for nearly every wine lover. Physically twice as large as Napa, the region only produces about half the amount of wine, but what it lacks in quantity it makes up for in both quality and variety. With its laid-back atmosphere and down-to-earth attitude, the wineries of Sonoma are appreciated by wine tourists for their friendliness and approachability. The entire county intends to become a 100% sustainable winegrowing region by 2019.

Grape varieties are carefully selected to reflect the best attributes of their sites—Dry Creek Valley’s consistent sunshine is ideal for Zinfandel, while the warm Alexander Valley is responsible for rich, voluptuous Cabernet Sauvignon. Chardonnay and Pinot Noir are important throughout the county, most notably in the cooler AVAs of Russian River and Sonoma Valleys, Carneros, and Fort Ross-Seaview. Sauvignon Blanc, Merlot, and Syrah have also found a firm footing here.

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.
