Eagle Eye Red Blend Napa Valley Voluptuous 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Voluptuous is defined by Webster as derived from gratification of the senses, sensuously delightful, full and shapely with indulgences in luxury, pleasure and sensuous enjoyment. This is what Eagle Eye Voluptuous does to your taste buds. Ripe red fruit, soft tannins and fruit forward characterize that Eagle Eye . The Eagle Eye Wine Artist, Roxanne Wolf, captured the flavor of Voluptuous with the painting "Red Hot Dip" for as the dapper couple swirls and twirls to the sensuality of the music, stars twinkle, palm trees sway, wine flows...Life is to be enjoyed!

We are Bill & Roxanne Wolf, Napa Valley growers of world class red wine grapes and Italian varietal olives for oil. We are also Wine Institute Educational Trust trained wine tasters, wine grape and olive growers, artist, culinary professional and owners of the Eagle Eye wine brand and AlphaWOLF Vineyard & Olive Ranch. The Eagle Eye brand was created to make small quantities of high quality wine from the Napa Valley that we are able to blend, with our winemaker, to create fruit forward, approachable young blends that are affordable and age worthy. We want the consumer to count upon and recognize the Eagle Eye brand as great wine for a great price. Roxanne has a strong sales and marketing background coming from her 25+ years as a real estate broker. During those years she refined her painting style. In 1998 she chose to start painting full time. Her style of painting moved from hard edge to whimsical. She then added nature and wine to her bold, colorful style. Her use of bright colors and her trademark of eagle heads on human bodies led us to develop our Eagle Eye wine brand where we have used a different one of her paintings for each wine varietal we make. She not only paints, but she also designs all of our labels for our wine and olive oil lines. Bill has worked for 30+ years in the food service industry. He was trained and worked as a chef in his early years and progressed to Vice President of operations when he left the ARAmark Corp. in 1996. "My father taught me organic farming as a youngster in a small community outside of Pittsburgh PA. My passion for food and wine and my desire to grow led me to my dream of growing grapes and olives and making them into wine and oil. In 1999 we purchased our ranch and have been working on our dreams to come true ever since." Read less

This was a tasting panel favorite. On the nose, I picked up Coca-cola with Lemon (a local delight you can get at the Iceburg here in Walla Walla), plus cinnamon, smoke and fig. The flavors are predominantly spicy with a touch of nice raspberry flavors and dark chocolate. The finish is surprisingly a mirror reflection of the taste - nice to have a wine stay the same from start to finish! This wine is well-balanced while still being light-bodied, so you can serve this with a variety of foods. My recommendation would be something savory! The spice component with this wine would provide a nice counterpoint to savory meat dish.

The six grape varietals in this wine is what makes it truly unique, giving the wine an impressive arsenal of aromas and flavors that are surprisingly well balanced. I detected aromas of cherry reduction, with some raspberries and just the right amount of oak to smooth out the fruit. The smell was delicious! The taste gave way to some vanilla, cola and slight dark chocolate tones with a long gentle finish. My favorite wine from Eagle Eye Wines so far!

Copper components and a buttery finish.

This is a good pick for wine drinkers that want to get the full mouth feel of robust winemaking style, but it's also pleasantly light bodied. It's not overpowering and will compliment food that's hearty - as well as lighter fair. There's some magic to the blend here.
