Tasting Notes

Spicy, ripe, red fruit and baking spices in the nose.  On the palate the spices persist along with black and red fruits with notes of berries, plums and cherries.  It is balanced with excellent acidity and structure.  This vintage is bright and full bodied throughout to a long complex finish.  A perennial favorite.

Winemaking Notes

Each lot was punched cap fermented on its own in one ton or less   batches and aged 34 months in French, Eastern European and American    Oak barrels prior to blending a month before bottling.  It is a Super Tuscan blend but made more like a Brunello.

***THIS WINE JUST WON BEST OF CLASS AT THE SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE WINE COMPETITION****

I have made Sangiovese based wines since 1992, from this vineyard since 1999.  This is the 5th for pureCru Napa Valley Winery.

Each vintage of this wine has been a multiple Gold Medal winner.  It is a small production lot that we have proprietized with the identity of Sangio Vetta, meaning Sangiovese at the peak or pinnacle.  Now and in the future, it will be blended in a way that best reflects the style I believe shows it as a world class Red of unique dimension without worrying about the percentages of varietals used meeting any minimum for labeling regulations.

Tasting Notes

pureCoz is a rich, full, intense, complex proprietary red wine blend with warm and well integrated tannins. It exhibits intriguing aromatics of black
rose, plums and spice. A wine of elegance and finesse in the mouth with baked boysenberry pie flavors with hints of plum and black pepper.
Stylistically it shows familiar elements of Meritage and Super Tuscan wines.

Winemaking Notes

Punched cap fermented after de-stemming. Aged in French Oak barrels for 34 months prior to blending. Aged in tank for 2 months and then bottled.

Comments

This wine since its inception was designed to be more versatile when it comes to food matchups as Meritage‚Äôs are, but with an additional almost magical fourth dimension due to the Sangiovese added. It also includes one of the rarest of Cabernet Sauvignon clones in this Country, which is the Secret Clone, which migrated from Italy. This vintage has already become a Gold Medal winner prior to release as has the preceding two vintages.
