2010 Boot Strap Napa Valley Red
WINEMAKER NOTES: “The 2010 expresses the personality of these Napa Valley vineyards in a cool growing season and the synergy of blending different red varietals. The wine is vibrant, full of Cab flavors and complete at a moderate finished alcohol close to 13%. The nose shows off black cherry, bing cherry, green tea and dried flowers. On the palate, there is plenty of richness and youthfulness to please everyone. The finish is structured by the acidity of Sangiovese and the sappy fruitiness of Petite Sirah. The lingering impression of place and balance invite another sip.”
GROWING SEASON: The weather in 2010 brought a cooler and later growing season. Patience, confidence and hopefulness influenced the picking decisions that were later in the season and rewarded by fruit that was ripe indeed and classically structured.
