Final Bottling for 2016

Our final bottling for calendar year 2016............

On Tuesday we completed the last of our California series offerings........my  Zinfandel blend finished out with 58 cases of what turned out to be a really tantalizing red wine.  Yes -  it is still a Zinfandel in every respect - but the addition of the Petit Syrah made this wine ever so lively.   I'm now a fan of Zinfandel.....unlike days gone by, like so many of us Napa brats who turn up our noses at anything but Cabernet Sauvignon, I have come to open myself to the great potential of Zinfandel blends and expand my winemaking capabilities and tastes for more than just Cabernet Sauvignon.

The crew at Napa Barrel Care (where we bottle our wines) is focused with a sharp eye for quality control throughout the entire bottling process.  Nothing gets by them in bringing my blend-in-the tank to life in the bottle.  I feel like a proud Papa as life is given to yet another offspring of Mount Saint Joseph Wines - our 2014 Califonria Zinfandel is born!

There is an exceptional sort of nerdy fervor wine lovers get when they open a bottle and find the wine is a stunner much like a peruser feels beginning an extraordinary book; you tuck into the experience and give it a chance to devour you totally.
