2009 La Craie American Celebration
California: Sonoma County: Chalk Hill
These are the Good Times
Dark fruit. Lush earthiness. Perfectly balanced.
That says it all about today’s 2009 American Celebration from our friends at Chateau Felice Winery. Part of their La Craie Reserve Series, this wine is Felice’s finest red blend
This wine wine elegant and flavorful, packed with balanced fruit and earthen component parts that all work together to give the wine a wonderful complexity. Enjoy this delicious wine all on its own, or with a wide variety of foods.
Opaque and dark with concentrated beet juice hues. At the edge of the glass, ruby highlights glint in the light when swirled.
Sweet cherry candy, raspberry, strawberry preserve and red currant meld with fresh thyme and rosemary.
Black cherry, overripe blackberry, stewed plum, stewed fig and dark berry preserve give way to black tea, dark dried herbs and tobacco leaf.
Soft and lingering, particularly at the mid-palate, this wine has a clean, crushed velvet finish.
Enjoy this clean wine with savory BBQ spareribs or a wild mushroom flatbread.
