2010 Three Established 1885 Red Wine 750ml

2010 Three Established 1885 Red Wine

image may not be actual bottle available

This established 1885 Red Wine is 31.6% Lucchesi Carignane, 28.5% Evangelho Zinfandel, 23.8% Spinelli Mataro, 9.8% Live Oak Petite Sirah, 3.4% Spinelli Alicante Bouschet, and 2.9% Spinelli Black Malvoisie.

The established 1885 has three important components. The juicy, crushed black fruit core comes from the Evangelho Vineyard -- 120 year-old Zinfandel plantings. The wine's ethereal, wild berry aromatics speak eloquently of one of the oldest plots in California -- the gnarly, head-trained rows of Lucchesi Vineyard – 125 year old spicy black cherry Carignane and the exotic Spinelli Mataro with aromas of crushed red fruits, raspberry liqueur, thyme and underbrush. Dense, chewy and massively concentrated on the attack, packed with raspberries, dark plum and black cherries, still perfectly light on its feet -- speaking volumes to these incredible 120+ year-old plants and the textbook low pH vibrancy of the fruit. A healthy splash of darkly muscled Petite Sirah paints this mouthwatering blend a deep purple.

Varietal: Red Blend

Country: United States
Although wine is made in all 50 states, it is understandable, with almost 90% of the country's production, that California is synonymous with domestic wine. As of 2010 harvest, reports indicate that Washington, New York & Oregon account for additional 6% of production, meanwhile Virginia, Missouri and Texas's wine industries are growing to a point beyond that of just a tourist attraction.

Region: California
California is one of the most diverse wine producing regions of the world. Although it has a history spanning over 200 years, it has experienced most of its growth in the last fifty years. The regions of Napa Valley and Sonoma County have become as renowned as France’s Bordeaux and Burgundy. While Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, and Chardonnay are by far the most popular fine wine varieties, producers in the Golden State have also experimented with an unparalleled array of diverse varieties, including Zinfandel, Syrah, Nebbiolo, Sangiovese, and Tempranillo.

Type: Red
Red wine is wine made from dark-coloured grape varieties. The color of red differs based on the grapes variety or varieties used. Interestingly, black grapes yield a juice that is greenish-white. The actual red color comes from anthocyan pigments (also called anthocyanins) from the skin of the grape (exceptions are the relatively uncommon teinturier varieties, which produce a red colored juice). Most of the production centers around the extraction of color and flavor from the grape skin.
