    Winemaker Notes

    The 2016 Purple Heart wine is crafted from hand-selected lots of pristine Sonoma County fruit, with both Alexander Valley and Dry Creek Valley vineyards figuring prominently. This medium-bodied offering opens with bright aromas of raspberries and cedar that precede richly textured notes of dark fruit and black currant on the palate. The wine’s finely balanced tannins give it a long, velvety mouthfeel with hints of caramelized brown sugar lingering through the finish.

    Blend: 68% Merlot, 14% Zinfandel, 9% Petite Sirah, 8% Malbec

    Purple Heart, California

    Th­e Purple Heart – no honor better symbolizes the bravery, determination and selflessness of the military men and women serving our country. It is this most noble medal that inspired us to honor our wounded and fallen heroes with an exceptional, purple-hearted blend of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon grown in America’s greatest wine region th­e Napa Valley.

    Not only does this wine serve as a worthy tribute to our brave heroes, it also allows us to give something back. We are proud to make an annual donation to the Purple Heart Foundation, an organization dedicated to serving the unmet needs of military men, women and families.

    Our military personnel make huge sacrifices. When crafting this wine, we made no sacrifices. It is an uncompromising wine made under the close stewardship of the Peter Mondavi Sr. Family, whose patriarch is a proud veteran of World War II. Join us as we lift a glass and pay tribute to our brave military heroes and thank them for their profound contributions.

    Home to a diverse array of smaller AVAs with varied microclimates and soil types, Sonoma County has something for every wine lover. Physically twice as large as Napa Valley, the region only produces about half the amount of wine but boasts both tremendous 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, Sonoma Coast and Carneros. Sauvignon Blanc, Merlot and Syrah have also found a firm footing here.

    One of the world’s most classic and popular styles of red wine, Bordeaux-inspired blends have spread from their homeland in France to nearly every corner of the New World. Typically based on either Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot and supported by Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot, the best of these are densely hued, fragrant, full of fruit and boast a structure that begs for cellar time. Somm Secret—Blends from Bordeaux are generally earthier compared to those from the New World, which tend to be fruit-dominant.
