TASTING NOTES

2010 The Smuggler’s Son

The Smuggler’s Son is a California Red Blend of Old Vine Zinfandel with a backbone of Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah from the Napa Valley floor. Petite Sirah and Carignane complete the blend. Our complex blending style maximizes the riches of each varietal in our vintage.

2010 The Smuggler’s Son is an elegant, well-balanced, velvety and expressive red wine. Deep ruby in color with delicious layers of blueberry, vanilla, pepper, and cocoa with a cabernet-like finish. Dark fruit and round subtle tannins compliment an approachable wine that can be enjoyed now. The complexities and balance will continue to shine over the next 3 to 5 years. A wine hand-crafted to be enjoyed with family and friends.

All grapes were sourced from premium wine country vineyards whose quality fruit has graced outstanding commercial wines in California for years. Aged in French Oak barrels for 18 months.
