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

For centuries the art of wine blending has been perfected by the French in a region known as Bordeaux, France. The Bourassa Napa Valley Wine Blending Kit will teach you the art of blending so you can enhance your own wine knowledge and educate your family and friends.
Vic Bourassa teaches the art of wine blending through sensory evaluation here at Bourassa Vineyards in Napa. Each wine blending session is designed to create a wine to perfectly match your pallet. Each participant gets one tasting mat, a ml pipette and a wine trail blend record sheet.
The wines used for blending will be three or more Napa Valley Bordeaux varietals and you will have the opportunity to be your own winemaker, creating a wine to enjoy based on your flavor preference. These wine blending sessions have been a huge favorite of our customers and take place right here in southern Napa.
If you would like to arrange a wine blending session for a group of your friends, family or co-workers contact us today!
