Quinta Cruz Alta Mesa Silvaspoons Souzão – 2009 – 9.1 – James Meléndez

This wine is 12.5% alcohol content.  Souzão also spelled Sousão coming from well known 300 acre Silvaspoons vineyard in Lodi’s Alta Mesa sub AVA

Sousão can be termed as a wine giving rustic flavour characteristcs and raisin. I don’t like to use the term raisin because that could be mistaken for wines imparting a flavour characteristic from raisined Saozao berries not picked out on sorting table.

Scent is fresh and clean, newly sanded cedar, forest floor and bramble patch. Flavour characterisitics of tart cherry, Acai, chocolate, Malabar pepper and Tamarind.

¡Salud!

About James Melendez

I have two blogs on this descriptor page--I use to be able to make separate. My fragrance blog is to express my thoughts on fragrance. A passion in addition to wine. I think it is a stellar component to the senses and that which I am in love with. I hope you like both blogs. My "wine" blog also incorporates those categories intimately involved - wine, food, travel and lifestyle. We all need food and water to survive but we need wine to nourish our soul. My favourite varietals are Pinot Noir, Nebbiolo, Grenache, Syrah-Shiraz.. for my red wines. And I often circle back to these varieties and sometimes they are my home varieties. The journey of wine is an historical footnote also marked by viti-viniculture and artistry that makes this beverage a living one. I have worked professionally in the wine trade and have loved all aspects; marketing, history, science and art of wine. © 2014 James Meléndez / James the Wine Guy— All Rights Reserved – for my original Content, logo, brand name, rating, rating graphic and award and designs of James the Wine Guy.
