Red Blends Wines

One of the world’s most classic and popular styles of red wine, Bordeaux-inspired blends have spread from their homeland in France to nearly every corner of the New World. Typically based on either Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot and supported by Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot, the best of these are densely hued, fragrant, full of fruit and boast a structure that begs for cellar time. Somm Secret—Blends from Bordeaux are generally earthier compared to those from the New World, which tend to be fruit-dominant.

Napa Valley, California

Napa Valley, where Cabernet Sauvignon is “King.”  The valley itself in Northern California is not very big, but it is home to some of the most expensive and prestigious vineyards in California. Napa is separated from Sonoma and Central Coast by two sets mountain ranges: the Mayacamas Mountains to the west and the Vaca Mountains to the east. Being in a valley, this region can heat up pretty quickly. However, there are cooling influences like fog and ocean breezes from the San Pablo Bay that help to moderate the temperature within the valley. With more heat comes more concentrated, fuller-bodied wines, making this the perfect place for Cabernet Sauvignon. Other primary red grapes of focus are Zinfandel, Merlot, Syrah, and Cabernet Franc. The principal white varieties to look for here are Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc. You may also find Pinot Noir in the more southerly area of Los Carneros AVA where it can get cool enough to produce high-quality Pinot Noir. Featured AVA’s include Howell Mountain, Calistoga, St. Helena, Mount Veeder, Los Carneros, Stags Leap District, Oakville, and Rutherford. 

Ashes & Diamonds Winery is a love letter to Napa Valley as it was when it took the world stage in the 1960s, revealing itself, along with Santa Cruz, as a geological wonderland capable of world-class wines.

Located at the gateway of Napa Valley, along its main artery, Highway 29, Ashes & Diamonds Winery’s mid-century approach extends to its architecture. As an homage, the iconic zig-zag roof and portholes are a few of the iconic references to the heritage of California mid-century modern design, seamlessly integrated with a state-of-the-art wine production facility surrounded by light, airy landscapes and playful, rolling berms.

Ashes & Diamonds Winery is the ultimate convergence of modern and old-school flavors, committed to offering a wide-ranging group of wines that adhere to an ethos of light-handed winemaking and transparency of terroir.
