Enjoy the Best That Napa Valley Has to Offer!
Riesling is a very hardy, romantic, and expressive grape variety. These Riesling grapes were harvested from Napa Valley with a 31% sugar or brix, resulting in a residual sugar level of 13.8% in the wine. The nose fills one with scents of tropical fruit, green tea, maple, and apricot. The taste is clean, racy and bright.
This Private Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon is a blend of our most prized vineyards from three distinct growing regions, Tulocay, Oak Knoll and Yountville. Dense ruby in color, rich raspberry and hints of chocolate and blackberry fruit flavors fill the palate with smoky toasted oak in the background. There is a smooth vanilla sweetness present to round out the finish.

Bourassa Vineyards continues to product award-winning wines year after year and this is no exception.
The wine releases a wonderful bouquet of violet and black currant aromas. When the wine flows on the palate, there is an explosion of dark ripe cherries followed by a touch of pleasingly sweet tobacco. The wine further develops in the glass with full-bodied elegance and a smooth lingering finish, which is a clear indicator that this wine will age nicely….but, why would you not enjoy it now?
A perfect pairing will be with Braised Beef Short Ribs.
This wine is made in the tradition of my Grandfather, Victor Nozzolillo from Naples Italy. We also include a “Solera” system blending older vintages with younger vintages.
