    Winemaker Notes

    Floral notes compliment the dark fruit aromas of plum and cassis. Black cherry, chocolate and licorice mingle together with smoky, earth tones and firm tannins. This bold wine will reward the palate when paired with hearty fare and its complex structure lends itself to cellar aging of at least 5-10 years.

    Alcohol: 14.1% by volume

    Liparita, Napa Valley, California
    Liparita Cellars was established in the early 1980s on Howell Mountain by owner Bob Burrows and winemaker and vineyardist Gove Celio. When the original vineyard was planted back in the late 1800s, it was named Liparita, or "little Lipari" because of the tremendous similarity between the red and white soils of Howell Mountain and those of the volcanic Lipari Islands off the coast of Sicily. Liparita's wines are still created using fruit from some of the most unique and exciting vineyards in the Napa Valley. Liparita Cellars plans to produce 10,000 case of wine - 4500 of Cabernet Sauvignon, 3500 Merlot and approximately 1000 cases each of Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc.

    A major force on the global playing field, California is the world’s fourth largest wine-producing region on the planet and the majority of land under vine here is devoted to red varieties—they cover nearly double the vineyard acreage compared to whites.

    While the state’s incredibly diverse terrain and microclimates allow for countless red wine styles, the one factor unifying all California red wine is the abundance of sunshine and a long, consistent growing season, which leads to well-developed and fully ripened fruit.

    The most famous region today, of course, is the acclaimed Napa Valley, where Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Bordeaux Blends garner global attention and in some cases, cult status.

    Sonoma County, nestled between Napa Valley and the Pacific Ocean, claims great variability in geography and microclimates with vineyards climbing up mountains, reaching far into valleys and stretching along some the state’s most dramatic coastlines. Here world-class Pinot Noir is possible from Sonoma’s cooler sites while Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon do well in its warmer locations.

    The Central Coast, Lodi and the Sierra Foothills also excel in the production of Zinfandel, and remain active new frontiers for Rhône and Spanish varieties.

    Mendocino in California’s cool North Coast region is a fantastic source of Pinot noir.

    Winemaking in California dates back to the 18th century when Spanish missionaries planted the first wine grapes. But the industry experienced its first boom with the Gold Rush in the last half of the 19th century when miners brought vines to the Sierra Foothills.
