Wine Review: This dark ruby red blend from Napa is a real big boy fruit bomb. It opens with a fragrant boysenberry bouquet with hints of cinnamon and all spice. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, well balanced, silky, yet very rich and fruit forward. The flavor profile is a concentrated blackberry and boysenberry blend with notes of black pepper and anise. The finish is quite dry and it managed tannins are very extended and impressive. We felt this wine would be perfect with a big thick ribeye. Enjoy - Ken
Winemaker Notes: Bacio Divino shows a bright dark ruby color when poured, releasing aromas of blackberry and current (cassis) fruit, with nuances of sweet vanilla. The palate is rich, yet elegant, fruit forward, yet subtle enough to display balance between the tannins, acid, oak and fruit. Bacio Divino is as individual as its name – “divine kiss”. We believe you will enjoy this vintage over the next decade.
