Gemstone Proprietary Red 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Our 2009 Estate Red Blend offers intense aromas of violet, sweet spice and ripe red fruit. These notes mingle with licorice, cherry pit and darker fruit flavors on the mid-palate. The long elegant finish layers cream and vanilla upon the rich fruit tones and smooth tannins. This wine will age for a minimum of twenty years but is lovely and approachable now.

Welcome to the website of Gemstone Vineyard, a small, family-owned grape grower and producer of estate wines. Though we do make a minute quantity of Chardonnay, our focus is on crafting richly textured red wines from Bordeaux varietals grown on our 16 acre hillside property in the Yountville appellation of Napa Valley. Our wines are quite limited. Most are sold to members of our allocation list, which you can request to join here, while the rest can be found on the wine lists of great restaurants through the country. "I hope people discover these great wines made by winemaking consultant Philippe Melka... These are stunning wines and all promise long life. The flagship wine is their Gemstone Proprietary Red, which is mostly Cabernet Sauvignon, and the other wine, Facets, usually a rather Bordeaux-styled blend dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon, but with significant proportions of Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and Petit Verdot."
