The flagship offering, and one of the most interesting blends from northern California, is the 2001 Proprietary Red Wine. Composed of 64% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Sangiovese, and 14% Syrah, it is a structured, closed, but dense, promising, rich, deep, and full-bodied effort. Aromas of black fruits, loamy soil, incense, minerals, pepper, and cedar are present in this impeccably balanced offering. With good underlying acidity and ripe tannin, this knock-out red should handsomely repay cellaring. Give it 1–3 more years of bottle age, and drink it over the following 10–12.

Another terrific offering from this producer, the 1996 Bacio Divino (a blend of 66% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Sangiovese, 9% Petite Sirah, and 8% Merlot) offers a spicy, oaky nose with notions of jammy cassis, strawberries and cherries. Full-bodied and complex, with a dominant black fruit element upstaging the new oak nuances, this fleshy, ostentatious, pure, gorgeously seductive wine will drink well for 7-8 years. Kudos to winemaker/proprietor Claus Janzen.

Delicious, ripe, rich and complex, with layers of juicy cherry currant, blackberry, vanilla and spice. The long, intricate finish keeps pumping out the flavors. Drink now through 2007.

A remarkably complex and successful blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Sangiovese and Petite Sirah. Offers a wonderful range of flavors, from the core of currant and blackberry to hints of cedar, sage, anise and nutmeg. Tightly wound and firmly tannic, with a long, intricate finish. Needs short-term cellaring. Best from 2006 through 2012.

Intense and concentrated, with fine structure and chewy tannins wrapped around a core of spicy currant, anise, blackberry and spicy nuances. Given its size and tannic strength, short-term cellaring is advised. Cabernet Sauvignon, Sangiovese, Petite Sirah. Best from 2006 through 2012.

This intriguing as well as innovative blend of 63% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Sangiovese, 8% Petite Sirah, and 9% Merlot is again an outstanding effort. Already evolved and delicious, the dark ruby/plum color is followed by aromas of new saddle leather, black raspberries, plum liqueur, cherries, and toasty, smoky new oak. Medium to full-bodied, with sweet tannin, an open-knit, fleshy texture, and low acidity, this California "super Tuscan look-alike" can be drunk now and over the next decade.

Winemaker's Notes:

Varietal Content: 64% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Sangiovese, 14% Petit Sirah Aging: All wines were aged in various new and one year old French Oak barrels, from November 2001 to July 2003. Alcohol: 14.1% alcohol/volume Grape Sources: Our primary Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards are in the Rutherford appellation. The Sangiovese comes from a high elevation vineyard in Atlas Peak (harvested in November), and our Petit Sirah vineyard is located just north of Calistoga. All fruit and wines are Napa appellation. Total Production: 1525 cases. Release Date: February 2003 Winemaker: Claus Janzen Consulting Winemaker: Nils and Kirk Venge Blending: Unlike wines that typify a certain terroir, our wines are blends in the classic sense. We choose the most expressive barrels of each varietal and utilize the ‘art’ of blending to produce a final wine that is superior to each of its components. Tasting Notes: The wine is deeply Cabernet colored, complex and layered in blackberry and current fruit. The intriguing Sangiovese varietal adds linear tannins and an indigenous fruitiness. The Petit Sirah adds a firm structural backbone and a fresh, bright acidity to the wine. Overall, Bacio Divino is balanced, precocious in its youth, generous in flavor and aroma, yet retains an elegance not always found in California wines. An important review of this vintage: Bacio Divino. 2001 Napa Red Rated 93+, Outstanding. The flagship offering, and one of the most interesting blends from northern California, is the proprietary Red Wine. Composed of 64% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Sangiovese, and 14% Petit Syrah, it is a structured, closed, but dense, promising, rich, deep, and full-bodied effort. Aromas of black fruits, loamy soil, incense, minerals, pepper, and cedar are present in this impeccably balanced offering. With good underlying acidity and ripe tannin, this knockout red should handsomely repay cellaring. Give it 1-3 more years of bottle age, and drink it over the following 10-12.
