I love getting out in the vineyard a few weeks before everyone else and just picking the fruit that is the ripest at that time and going back through maybe three or four times. This allows me the ability to make small lots with different alcohol levels and then to blend those back, making for a truly great wine.
Buzzard Red is a winemakers blend of select fruit.10% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Petite Sirah, 30% Zinfandel, 40% Mourvedre all from Sonoma County. This wine offers very nice blackberry and cherry flavors on the nose. There is a up front fruit eruption with layers of luscious cherries and black berries’ and softer layers with great complexity. Great with food or by it’s self.
