"The 2009 Pirate TreasuRed is deeper, silkier and a touch more seductive than the 2008. Here the fruit profile tends towards redder fruit, with hints of flowers, mint and tobacco that add complexity. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2018.

This is an eclectic set of wines from Heidi Barrett." (WA)

Winery Notes:
The true treasure of the seven seas - Pirate TreasuRed. A big, brazen blend of seven different red varietals. Enjoy this delicious Cab blend and have some fun while you're at it. Drink up, me hearties!

Using seven varieties, the "treasure of the seven seas" is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc, Grenache, and Petite Sirah. Pirate TreasuRed will arrive properly in a six-bottle treasure chest box. The bottles resemble rum bottles with the label an old map of the Napa Valley. The wine is bold and Cab-like with the other varietal flavor profiles overlapping, showing off the magic of the blend.

Winemaker Notes:
Very deeply colored like blackberry jam. Aromas are bold, dried black cherry, dark chocolate. Cab-like yet different with a lifted Grenache note. Across the palate it's broad, mouthfilling and powerful with unusually sweet tannins, and a long finish. A big, black, bold wine with distict personality and style.
