Red Wines - Early Burgundy

2012 Westover Early Burgundy, Lodi

This wine is crafted from Abouriou grapes grown in Lodi. Abouriou is a black-skinned grape with low acidity and a high tannins. In the Côtes du Marmandais region of France, Abouriou is often blended with Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot as well as more eclectic varieties such as Syrah and Gamay. At Westover, we used 100% Abouriou grapes in the production of this vintage. In California, Abouriou was once widely planted.vCalifornia winemakers working with the grape have described it as having the aromatics and flavors of Malbec, with the structure of Dolcetto. This would suggest black fruits and spice on the nose, with a broad, possibly chewy mid-palate feel. This vintage has a deep color, medium body, gentle tannins and a cellar life of up to five years.
