pureCru pureCoz Napa Valley Red
Ripe currants and berries with a fresh spice note in the aromatics. pureCoz is a rich, intense and complex proprietary red wine blend dominated by grapes with a Bordeaux origin. In the mouth it is expansive with black fruits, some cherry and clove accented with ripe, well integrated tannins and a complex yet subtle oak frame. a well structured wine of elegance and depth. It is not heavy nor sweet, there is broadness across the palate yet with exacting balance. It finishes refined and polished. stylistically it shows familiar elements of meritage and super Tuscan wines.
Punched cap fermented following destemming. each lot aged in French oak barrels 40 months prior to blending and bottling.
This wine since its inception was designed to be more versatile when it comes to food matchups as meritage wines tend to be. This may be the single most versatile red wine I have made in my 40 years of winemaking. It also includes the rarest of Cabernet Sauvignon clones in this country, which is the secret clone, which migrated from Italy. Enjoy!
