Artesa Red Blend Sonoma County Elements 2001

Member Review by CalKid:

I found this stuff on sale at 3 Bears in Palmer, which is a warehouse type place similiar to COSTCO but much smaller scale. Anyway, here it is 2008 and they got this stuff from 2001 on sale for 5 bucks. Yep, five bucks. So I bought some, then went back and bought the rest. Five bucks. I'm on my last bottle. Ok the wine, who knows whats in it, but it does have a rather nice complexity, and if there is no Zin in it, I'll just shut up. Its got to have some Zin in it. A bit on the oaky side, that new American Oak deal, but good fruit, well rounded and fruity, I think, nice lingering fnish. I find it goes ok with most foods, but I find that it has more appeal before dinner.

Artesa is Napa's newest, most exciting winery. Our architecturally-acclaimed facility opened as Codorniu Napa in 1991, dedicated solely to méthode champenoise sparkling wine production. But in 1997, with the arrival of a world-class winemaker and a $10 million conversion, the winery shifted focus dramatically. Artesa was born with the inaugural release of ultra-premium still wines in September 1999. Artesa (ahr TESS uh) means "craftsman" and connotes "handcrafted" in Catalan, language of Barcelona and our owner, Codorníu, one of the world's largest and oldest wineries. The Codorníu Group actually consists of eight spectacular wineries whose wines are enjoyed daily in over 100 countries around the world. So, while we are Napa's newest, our heritage is rich. We share five centuries of history with 15 generations of a remarkable winemaking family. Read less
