Kingsford Manor Winery Reserve Napa Valley Red Blend 2012
 
 
Introduction
We recently visited with the winemaker at this very well known and prestigious Napa Valley property. They have been producing gorgeous wines in the Valley for over twenty-five years, and all from their very impressive property’s original plantings. And this is from one of the all-time greatest vintages in their history with loads of bright, lush fruit. The winery's extraordinary tasting room is located in the Rutherford appellation of Napa Valley, right on Route 29. This big and bold wine truly does represent extreme value by any standard. We are confident that you are going to love this spectacular wine, and it is the best vintage yet!

This stunning Napa Valley Reserve is made by one of Napa Valley’s top winemakers. It is comprised of over two-thirds Cabernet, with touches of Bordeaux blending varietals. It spent 20 months in a mix of new and neutral French oak. After the difficult 2011 vintage, I have been enjoying the beautiful lush Napa wines of the 2012 vintage and this is a particularly delicious wine. A perfumed nose of dark raspberry and black cherry aromas with nice touches of toasty oak, kirsch and plum. On the palate, consumer friendly and mouth watering, with smooth tannins and silky packed fresh fruit including black cherry, coffee, roses, cola, and dark chocolate with notes of red flowers, sweet vanilla oak and toffee. This wine is worth waiting on and it will drink nicely for many years. On the other hand, it is drinking so beautifully now it may be hard to resist. This winery is located right near one of my “go to” Napa restaurants - The Rutherford Grill. Pair this with their marquee dishes including their Rutherford hardwood grilled Rib-eye, Steak and Enchilada Platter, Barbeque Pork Ribs, Bangers and mashed potatoes, and Roasted Prime Rib.

Winemaker’s Notes
Brilliant shades of reds and purple present in this wine. Aromas are rich with boysenberry jam, blackberry, raspberry, mocha and anise in the background. Blackberry and raspberry flavors combine with a vanilla toasted oak and finish with a fine texture. This is an elegant, graceful red wine. Enjoy!
 
Vintage & Winemaking
The season of 2012 commenced with a very dry and cold winter. The lack of water was concerning as this persisted through the end of February, while the Sierra’s had minimal snowfall. March eased the burden with 9 inches of rain, therefore replenishing groundwater reserves. A warm spring followed, then a moderate to hot June, July and August. Excellent ripening weather through the summer, which was then followed by a warm September, allowing a good even and progressive harvest. October kicked off with a hot start followed by even, warm conditions. 2012 provided an excellent growing season. The fruit was harvested in the cool morning hours, then crushed to tank where fermentation commenced after a brief period of resting on skins. Warm fermentation temperatures were encouraged to achieve the desired color and structure for the wine before an extended maceration time on skins prior to final pressing. The wine was transferred directly to barrel for 20 months of maturation.
