2010 Kesner Bluestone Red Wine

[click image to zoom]
image may not be actual bottle available

A tribute to vintage North Coast plantings and field blends from two vineyards, planted in 1918 and 1933. Zinfandel, Grenache, Petite Sirah and Counoise. The wine is more old world than new, more structured, and nuanced. Purposefully harvested at low sugars and with stronger natural acids from sites well suited to this approach. A wine of balance and restraint. Dense yet elegant purple and black fruited tones, violets, bright acids and undercurrents of iron, powdered rocks, wild sage and light dusty tannins. Native fermentation in an open topped fermenter, whole berries. No pressing of the fruit, only free run juice used. Natural acids. Cellared 16 months in 30% newer French Oak.

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.
