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.
