2001 Bacio Divino Red (3000ml)
DescriptionThe Vineyards that provide the Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot for the Bacio Divino are the acclaimed To Kalon Vineyard in Oakville. George Latour III Vineyard in Rutherford, and our own Cloudy's Vineyard in Dutch Henry Canyon at the base of Howell Mountain. The Sangiovese comes from a high elevation vineyard in Atlas Peak. The Petit Sirah is from an old-vine vineyard just north of Calistoga.
64% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Sangiovese, 14% Petit Sirah
The wine is deeply Cabernet colored, complex and layered in blackberry and current fruit. The intriguing Sangiovese varietal adds linear tannins and an indigenous fruitiness. The Petit Sirah adds a firm structural backbone and a fresh, bright acidity to the wine. Overall, Bacio Divino is balanced, precocious in its youth, generous in flavor and aroma, yet retains an elegance not always found in California wines.
