2009 Wind Gap "Orra" North Coast Rhone Blend (1.5L)

SKU #1323849 91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Medium red. Pungent, spice-accented aromas of peppery red berries, cherry, blood orange and herbs are lifted by a floral topnote. Sappy and focused, with a peppery quality giving lift to its bitter red fruit flavors. Possesses very good mid-palate heft, with firm tannins adding shape and grip to the persistent finish. (ST)  (5/2011)

United States

- When people consider domestic wine, they normally think about the state of California. The fine viticultural Region within California, including the Napa Valley, Sonoma, Santa Cruz Mountains, Mendocino and Santa Barbara, are capable of growing grapes of world-class quality. But there's plenty of fabulous wine coming from other states, too. Oregon, Washington and New York are also causing eyebrows (and glassware) to be raised around the world.


- With the explosive growth that California's wine industry has seen the past several years, it's easy to view winemaking and grape growing in the Golden State as a recent phenomenon. And while it's true that California's viticultural history is brief compared to several European countries, this state's roots date back well over 200 years. Due to the enormous response to California wine within the United States and worldwide, there are thousands of excellent and diverse wines being produced within the state each year.
