Winemaker's Notes:

The two vineyards in the Napa Valley, Conrad Vineyards and Rancho Chimiles in Wooden Valley in East Napa were blended to compliment each other. One is hillside and older presenting a fruity wine and the other is a young wilder vine giving more pepper and herbs. A longer time in the barrel was needed to balance all the nuances of this fine drinking wine. Gary Galleron is the Bourassa Vineyards consulting winemaker. In the first wine he has produced for Bourassa Vineyards, Gary Galleron shows his mastery with this classic varietal. With a long history in the Napa Valley, Gary produces wines under his own label and has been winemaker for other wineries including Whitehall Lane, Vineyard 29, Grace Family, Chateau Montelena, S. Anderson, Hartwell and others. Working with Vintner Victor Bourassa, he will oversee winemaking for all of the family's wine, including the red blends, Harmony3, Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel, Syrah, Cabernet Franc, Sauvignon Blanc and the Primitivo Port. The 2004 Odyssey³ Zinfandel is another gem, wonderfully ripe fruit but not a total fruit bomb, beautifully layered with dark cherry and warm spice notes and a gentle vanilla from the American oak. This wine pairs well with spicy food and barbeque anything. It has attractive floral notes with rich fleshy blackberry fruit flavors with notes of pepper, anise, and mint to balance the fine finish.
