Heibel Ranch Vineyards 2008 'Lappa’s' Napa Valley Red, CA
From highly respected winemaker Trent Ghiringhelli comes this week’s lush, complex food friendly wine that has never before been discounted. This wine offer by Heibel Ranch Vineyards is rooted in their belief of giving back to the community. This is a good opportunity to get a fine wine from a remarkable producer at a great price!
The 2008 Lappa’s shows a refined bouquet of raspberry and red currant. The palate is slightly smoky, but soon reveals flavors of licorice, red cherry, and black currant. Towards the finish a slight presence of chocolate touches the back of the palate. The wine is balanced and well integrated both with fruit and structure. The tannins are approachable, food friendly and linger for some time – along with the fruit. Trent Ghirinigelli uses American and French Oak, both new and neutral oak, but he tries to limit the oak during the aging, instead focusing on highlighting his vineyard and the fruit in the bottle.
