B Cellars Blend 25 Napa Valley 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

"Only the second vintage for this wine, but it joins the top ranks of Cabernet-Syrah Blends." S.H. Wine Enthusiast, October 2007.http://www.winemag.com/buyingguide/detail.asp?wineid=71028(for more details) Blend 25 has proven to be a stalwart bottling for B Cellars; clearly a wine of great pride and distinction. The 2004 vintage Blend 25 begins boldly with a dark, deep purple color opening the door to a collage of powerful fruit, layered evenly from the beautiful nose at the beginning to a subtle finish on the palate. The wine has superb volume of black cherry, blackberries, sweet black fruit and a hint of espresso and licorice at the onset. It is followed by a loud and vibrant array of black stone fruits, clove, and hints of barrel vanilla. The texture is firm and balanced with symmetrical parts of sweet ripe tannin and acidity. The fleshy and moderately chewy mid-palate pushes on to a generous and memorable finish.

Founded by Jim Borsack and Duffy Keys in 2003, B Cellars winery is the collaboration of two like-minded individuals that shared a vision and, through a happenstance meeting, brought to life their dream of creating a food-centric winery focused on blending varietals using a combination of Old and New World wine making perspectives. Soon after, they met their third key player, Kirk Venge. Named “one of the Top 20 New Winemakers in the World” by Food & Wine Magazine (October 2005), Kirk brings with him a 37-year winemaking legacy through his father, Nils Venge, and a keen understanding of the Napa appellation. A bond was established almost immediately between Jim, Duffy and Kirk. With Kirk’s passion for great wine, first-hand knowledge and commitment to excellence, it quickly became apparently that he was the ideal winemaker for B Cellars. B Cellars grew out of a love for food and wine but evolved into a passion and drive to craft fine wines that surpass the expected. Utilizing a multi-vineyard, multi-varietal winemaking strategy, acquiring and blending Napa Valley's finest grapes and employing a team of passionate, hard-working staff with impeccable credentials are just a few of the qualities that make B Cellars a unique and memorable winery. B Cellars produces matchless blends that are favored by chefs and restaurateurs for their distinct character, depth, and food-friendly "layers" of flavor. Read less
