Pininfarina Vino Rosso Napa Valley 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Tasting Notes The Pininfarina Napa Valley Vino Rosso is all about density and intensity. This wine is packed with structure, viscosity and weight. The initial aromas are of cedar, cigar tobacco and vanilla. The flavors start off with mouth filling tannins that convey generosity and fullness rather than hardness. It opens into a surprisingly vibrant explosion of spice and fruit. With just a little air in the glass, the aromas of black plums, currants and spicy white pepper lift the wine to a finish which is more brightness and silk than the heaviness and rigid structure so often found in ultra premium cabernet-based wines.

64% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Merlot, 11% Cabernet Franc, 6% Malbec, 5% Syrah Intensely aromatic with noticeable wood being well buffered by spice notes, rich red fruit, plum and berry tones and floral accents. Juicy on entry with really polished tannins that slowly creep up on the palate but never break through the fresh, zesty red fruits that are framed with some lightly minty coffee cream. The wood tannins are slightly drying on the backend but offer a nice counterpoint to the sweet fruit on the palate. The oak adds a subtle caramel note here but that’s replaced by more cedary character on the moderate finish. A wine to drink on the near term for its balance and bright fruit. 90pts
