TODAY'S FEATURED WINE
This is my own wine.
I dreamed it up. Wrote it into a thriller and it became real.
I opened one of the dwindling number of bottles for my birthday tonight.
Read on down for more about the fictional wine that wound up in a bottle.
From the Rutherford Bench and Stags Leap district with a combination of hillside and valley floor grapes. Blackberries and a hint of oil-cured olives.
This is aging smoothly and gracefully. Has good, solid fruit, tannins and structure that still play well together. Many years left. 182 cases made.
I created this wine as the signature for a major character in my novel, Perfect Killer.
The fictional wine became reality with the help of gifted winemaker Charlie Tsegeletos.
Find out more about this wine at Xantaeus, and Castello DaVinci.
The book blurs reality. So does the wine. Can you tell what's fiction and what's not?
As always, SavvyTaste.Com has my full description and opinion of this wine: Lewis Perdue's Rating of Castello Da Vinci: Bordeaux Blend: Napa Valley: Xantaeus: 2003: United States
