Jacuzzi Family Vineyard Red Blend Carneros Valeriano 2005
Wine Tasting Notes A unique blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Barbera and Merlot, we call this our Super Sonoman, our take on a Super Tuscan. It's a wonderful blend of traditional Bordeaux varieties with an Italian twist. The wine displays rich cherry and pleasant herbal flavors and has a tannic backbone that makes for a well-balanced wine that will age gracefully for years to come.
Tannic. pH and alcohol seem high for long term cellaring but should be better in 2011. Patience required. Interesting blend of grapes. Fred Cline has rolled back prices - - suggested list now $20. Sold in carton of 6 - - bottle bottom resembles Doric column. Should work well with steak, cheese or chocolate.
