Move over Prisoner, there's a new kid on the block and she's looking to steal your thunder! Named for "Rancho Carne Humana," the Mexican land grant that was given by the Mexican government to Edward Turner Bale (the Bale Grist Mill is a Hwy 29 landmark en route to Calistoga from St Helena) in 1841 that included the land between present-day Rutherford and Calistoga. This propietary blend of Petit Sirah, Petit Verdot, Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, and Charbono is barely legal in its abundance of dark, ripe, sexy fruit aromas and flavors and heady spice. Fruit sourced from six vineyards was all co-fermented and the wine aged for eighteen months in new and used French oak, imparting toasty flavors and a rich, creamy texture to its core of youthful and plump fruit. Full-bodied, smooth, and eager to please, this bold red could be called "carne asada" since we can't think of a more appropriate pairing!

For our 2014 Carne Humana Proprietary Red Wine we blended 100% Napa Valley fruit, the preponderance of which was grown within the borders of the original rancho. All of the fruit was co-fermented and barrel-aged as unique blends. This allowed the various grape types to integrate with each other early on, and also for the different vineyards to achieve greater harmony in the final blend. After an extended maceration of almost 60 days, we aged the wine in a combination of new and seasoned French oak barrels for about 18 months.

Hint of sweet tobacco, maple, cherry pie filling, black licorice and an enlivened, bright acidity on the entry that is quickly followed by rich, dark fruits, dried cranberry and sweet oak. Lingering finish.
