Gallegos Wines Dos Hermanos Napa Red Wine
From the producer:
Vineyard Notes Rancho de Gallegos, owned by Ignacio’s brother Maurilio Gallegos, is nestled in the heart of Rutherford on Napa Valley’s main Highway 29. It is one of the oldest merlot producing vineyards in the Napa Valley, with the first vines being planted in the late 1980s. This vineyard has been cared for by Maurilio and his sons since its first planting. Its low yields provide for a merlot grape intense with color and flavor unique to its site and farming practices.
Production Notes: This wine aged in 30% new French oak and 70% neutral French oak barrels. Winemaker Notes The 2013 Gallegos Dos Hermanos Proprietary Red Blend, a blend of 50% Merlot and 50% Petite Sirah, has a dense purple color, with full fruit components of plum, blueberry and black raspberry. The tannins of the Petite Sirah are not intrusive, and the wine is full-bodied, opulent and age-worthy. Petite Sirah is capable of aging 20-25 years.
