A great review (on a GREAT blog), by Nelson Tucker, "The Wine Guy"
2010 Harmony ³ (Napa Valley)
An intriguing version of Napa Valley's answer to this Bordeaux blend. Right off the bat I was pleased with the dark purple color, floral and spice aromas, and rich, spicy, ripe dark cherry and berry flavors that followed.
This wine is expected to age nicely over the next ten to fifteen years. These grapes were picked at the right time to produce a well structured wine. It is a beautiful wine for sipping or with prime rib or rich and spicy pasta.
It's partner wine was one of the Top 100 Cabs of the Napa Valley. Once again, Vic Bourassa has hit a home run!
Winery price: $59.00

Every year the Napa Valley Vintners put on an amazing event - Auction Napa Valley. This event generates needed funds for healthcare nonprofits in Napa County and we wholeheartedly support them every year!
We have donated an online auction lot that anyone can bid on (no need to travel to Napa Valley this weekend!). Our lot includes a case of Library wines, tours of the winery, lunch with Vic and a VIP barrel blending for 6 people. We will also be tasting some of Vic's favorite older vintages!
We hope you support this great cause - to place a bid, please visit: www.auctionnapavalley.org
Wine and golf - it is a match made in heaven! This past weekend, we had a great turn out for our annual Wildcat Golf Tournament and Fundraiser for American Canyon Middle School - the weather was perfect and the participants had a fantastic time!
We have another wine and golf event in August - Wine on the Links, at Bandon Dunes Golf Resort in Bandon, Oregon. Three of Napa Valley's premier wineries are participating in this unique event: in addition to Bourassa Vineyards, Hendry Ranch Winery and Lamborn Family Vineyards will be on hand to make sure you enjoy the hours off the golf course just as much as the time on the course!
For more information, please visit Wine on the Links - we hope you enjoy your golf and wine as much as we do!
We are thrilled to be celebrating our 10th anniversary this year - Vic Bourassa is kicking off the festivities with a Wine Dinner at Cuvee Restaurant in Napa on Saturday, January 21st. We will be featuring delectable dishes paired with our library Cabernet Sauvignon, Bordeaux Blends and the prized Solera Port - seating is limited, so call us today for reservations!
We will be continuing the celebration throughout the year, so be sure to check back often for our new releases and updated event schedule. Thank you all for making us a favorite when you visit Napa Valley - and here is to another 10 years!
With Valentine's Day almost upon us our thoughts are turning to all things chocolate and the best wine to accompany our favorite sweet treat.
Simply put chocolate is delicious accompanied by red wines with their often matching and complementing flavors but where it really shines is with a good quality Port. Port has the perfect balance of fruit, spice, acid, sugar and alcohol to be paired with a wide assortment of chocolates.
Even in the glass Port is a pleasure to behold. A color that is deep and brilliant with aromas and flavors that typically show hints of spice-infused blackberry deserts, mixed nuts and of course chocolate!
As part of the 10th year anniversary events taking place here at Bourassa Vineyards, on Saturday (tomorrow!) we invite you to a 'Smokin Good Time' where among the wines poured will be our very own Solera Port. It will be a perfect opportunity to pair our Port with the fine chocolates from Napa's Vintage Sweet Shop as well as enjoying a cigar from Baker Street Cigar.
There's still time to RSVP by calling (707) 254 4922!
A special message from our Proprietor Vic Bourassa.
When I was 5 years old, my Port influence came from my Grandfather, Victor Nozollilo, under the apple trees at a picnic table on our little farm in Massachusetts, Victor was also smoking a cigar and enjoying home made Port with his Italian family The aroma of the cigar and the flavor of port stayed with me like glue, if my mother caught him sneaking me a sip of port she probably would have screamed bloody murder, but my grandfather was a rebel that way. I loved it and loved him for it. I make fine Solera Port today because of that experience. I also love the smell of a cigar and partake in smoking a fine cigar with wine when ever the mood strikes me. Those that do the same Celebrate Life in a brotherly kind of way, rebels sort of, I like that a lot.
A Smokin Good Time at Bourassa Vineyards in Napa will take place because of my grandfather; I will toast him while celebrating with good friends and wine club members.
For more details see our Events Page.
Today we want to give a special mention to a true friend of Bourassa Vineyards, Dr. Bruce Freedman from Virginia. We're all raising a glass and celebrating the amazing achievement he has just accomplished with his son; climbing 'Cotopaxi', a stratovolcano in the Andes Mountains, located about 17 miles south of Quito, Ecuador. Dr. Freedman is a hardy adventurer for sure as this is his third mountain climbing expedition in the last two years!
For us here at Bourassa Vineyards it's not just about celebrating wine but also celebrating friendships!
