T-Vine Mixed Blacks Oak Glade Vineyard Napa Valley 2010

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Zin, petite. Carignane, malvasia Oak Glade vineyard on the Silverado trail, just south of Stags Leap A little 2010 pruny but still with a fresh plum and berry fruit and freshening up in the glass. There’s plenty of vanilla and bay leaf here, all over nutty base notes. While low and broad in the mouth this remains well balanced with a chewy feel. The flavors are very 2010, fresh yet roasted with peppery edges and figgy accents. Nice firm slightly dry tannins help drive the long finish, which is earthy and a bit matte. A bit heavy handed perhaps. 88pts

T-Vine Cellars:
We are a very small winery located off the beaten path in Calistoga, behind the owner - winemaker's home. There are just 3 people that work at T-Vine. We market, sell and deliver all of our own wine in California.
