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

Easter is a wonderful time of the year as we celebrate Spring and a time for families and friends to come together around the dinner table. The supermarkets are stocked with delicious whole legs of lamb and big fresh hams crying out to make an appearance on your table. Easter is a holiday similar to Thanksgiving and Christmas where so many of us gather to break bread, but let's not forget to consider what wines should be poured to please your guests!
So the best Easter wine tip we can offer is to make sure you don't pour anything too shy or subtle with those big roasts. Lamb needs a big red like our Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, and with a juicy fresh ham we suggest our wonderfully well received 2009 Rutherford Chardonnay.
The reason we think our Cabernet Sauvignon goes so well with lamb is because of its vivid, mouth-filling fruit flavors. Our 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon has concentrated raspberry and vanilla flavor that linger on your palate as you sip the wine. It's certainly an equal to the bold, simple flavors of roast lamb and won't overpower the taste of the meat.
In the same way our 2009 Rutherford Chardonnay is clean and crisp with tremendous balance. It has subtle flavors of white peach and green apple, which layer the palate while its finish is soft yet lengthy and offers hints of butterscotch. Just like the Cab' and the lamb pairing, this Chardonnay offers balance and harmony to your fresh ham and its seasonings.
You can buy a bottle or case of our 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon and 2009 Rutherford Chardonnay in our wine store today by clicking here.
Whatever wine you choose for your Easter celebration we hope you enjoy this special time for friends and families to come together.
There are some things that go together perfectly and here at Bourassa Vineyards we believe wine and golf are two such things! This is why we have teamed up with the good people at Eagle Vines Golf Club, which is nestled in the foothills of the Napa Valley, to run the second annual Wildcats Golf Tournament.
This event takes place on Friday, April 29th and benefits the American Canyon Middle school (Home of the Wildcats!). The tournament is sure to be a fun day out with golf being played on an exquisite course followed by a dinner where Vic will be pouring some delicious Bourassa wines.
You can find all the details below including how to RSVP and yes, you read it right, you could also win a new 2011 Mustang courtesy of Napa Ford!
