Located on the northern section of Westside Road, the Bacigalupi Vineyard enjoys a warm microclimate in a cool growing region. The pure nose of red, blue, and black fruits jumps out of the glass and immediately captures your attention. More subtle notes of tangerine peel studded with cloves add a layer that keeps you looking for more. The flavors lead with hints of blackberry and blueberry and transition to notes of pomegranate. Lively acidity freshens up the palate and carries the finish to a wonderful earthy, minerally conclusion. This is a beautifully proportioned wine.
Russian River Valley, Sonoma County, California
“This exceptional red thriller showcases dizzying aromatics with raspberry, boysenberry and plum as it comes alive on the palate, accented by a delightful complement of jammy cherry, blueberry and allspice. This gem manages a dual personality as both a velvety smooth instant gratification Zin and also providing Pinot Noir like depth for high-end cellar-worthiness.” – California Wine Advisors, 96pts.
