"Tenbrink Vineyard" California
Ripe, but not over-ripe PETITE SIRAH from “Tenbrink Vineyard” in Suisun Valley, east of Napa Valley. Aged
3 years in neutral barrel with no topping. Think Amarone as the wine has a concentrated wild berry liqueur flavor along with tobacco, dried wild mushrooms, tar and old oiled leather. Gentle tannins, sweet fruit, black pepper and a little vanilla bean at the end. 180 cases made.
From Abe: "The name comes from the beautiful Piedmontese dialect word "bricco"--- the prized pitch of a hillside, the top of a slope, especially that inclines into the sun. "Babelico" means "babylonian," but even better-- it means 'babelized' - from the tower of Babel. This wine is babelized, and the bricco that it comes from is as flat as a stove-top."
