Kuleto 2009 Native Son Red, Napa Valley
Kuleto Vineyards are located in a very elite section of Napa Valley. On the foothills and mountains on the eastern side of the valley, above Pritchard Hill and near tony neighbors like Colgin, Bryant Family, Long Vineyards, David Arthur, Chappellet and Harrison. Kuelto has about 80 acres of vineyards broken up into over 100 micro-blocks, each farmed separately at elevations of roughly 1,000 to 1,400 feet. Sangiovese was planted widely originally but now most has been changed over to Cabernet. This lush blend uses some of that original Sangiovese. It's a blend of 83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Sangiovese and 2% Zinfandel aged 18 months in French and American oak. It's intensely perfumed with aromas of dark berries, mocha and cedar. It shows the bright rich fruit flavors that 2009 Napa Cabs are famous for. Sweet raspberry and cherry flavors and then notes of dark chocolate and roasted nuts. Sturdy but well massaged tannins focus the flavors that linger long on the finish. A real treat. Grab it now while it's On Sale!

            Not much to recommend in this wine. A little harsh and not pleasant to sip.

              Comments about Kuleto 2009 Native Son Red, Napa Valley:

              We enjoyed this bottle of wine with Grilled Beef. This wine was a real delight especially considering the value. When I decanted this bottle the room filled with the fragrance of berries. Tannins were present but subdued. As it sat in the decanter the wine opened up nicely and became more enjoyable. The finish was long and almost mouthwatering. This wine is ready to drink but will age nicely in the future. I would highly recommend you decanting this bottle of wine and allowing it to sit for 45 minutes to an hour before enjoying. As far as I am concerned this has no negatives whatsoever and the writing on the back of the label was quite humorous.

                A fairly intense nose of black fruit, cola, vanilla and pepper notes are alluring from the start. On the palate the fruit is dense yet lush with milk chocolate and baking spices adding depth and character. The tannins are on the soft side and the finish is long and lovely. For under $30 this is a Napa Cab steal!!
