Lava Cap Winery American River Red Celebrated Cuvee 2005
This stellar proprietary wine is made mainly from grapes grown in our estate mountain vineyards near the American River. The 2005 blend includes Zinfandel, Merlot and Syrah, with a small amount of Cabernet Franc and Barbera. It has lovely structure and delicious complexity. This wine's full body, gentle texture and bright cherry flavors should reward the drinker for the coming five years.
This is one of my favorite wines at Lava Cap. It has a big nose, bold flavors and a long, smooth finish. This is a wonderful everyday red table wine. Because of the smooth finish, it will go with most any food and is great to simply sip in the afternoon or evening.
