2011 Carne Humana is a red wine blend sourced from six vineyards throughout the upper-Napa Valley sub-appellations of Calistoga, St. Helena, and Rutherford. Petite Sirah, Petit Verdot, and Zinfandel are among the grape varieties chosen for this vintage. Whereas most red blends are created from separate lots and combined before bottling, Carne Humana was co-fermented and barrel aged as a single lot for greater depth and integration.
This wine was aged in a combination of new and seasoned French oak barrels for 18 months.
Bottled May 29, 2013.
A scarlet purple edge in the glass with a crimson black core confirm the bright freshness and ripe intensity of the wine. Aromas include cool pomace, dried fig, black licorice and cranberry. Supple tannin and mild acidity complement the fleshy fruit character - A broadly extracted wine with mild grip and texture and a full polished finish.
