A great review (on a GREAT blog), by Nelson Tucker, "The Wine Guy" 

 

Bourassa Vineyards
2010 Harmony ³ (Napa Valley)
92
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

Wine and Golf!

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!

Oak Infusion Spirals for Barrels

Vic is going to start using a great new invention in the cellar - oak nfused spirals that impart barrel characteristics into the wine in a shorter amount of time!

Spiral barrel packs replicate a barrel toasting gradient using a mix of four different toast levels. The result is a balanced quality on the nose and palate comparable to the aromas and flavors found in fine barrel-aged wines.

When inserted through the barrel bung hole the pack releases fresh, new-barrel, toasted oak aroma and flavor through its patented and space-efficient spiral-cut design with virtually all aromas and flavors fully extracted in six to eight weeks rather than eight to 12 months typically needed to extract from a new oak barrel. With continued contact in wine, flavors will further integrate into the wine and more rounded tannins will form.

Vic will be using both the Bordeaux Blend and Rhone type of spiral in his wines - and will be conducting taste tests for visitors between the wines - those that have received the treatment vs. those that have not! Want to get in on the test? Just visit the Tasting Room and ask to participate - we would love to hear your feedback!
