Parker Coonawarra Estate

Petaluma

Unfiltered Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot 2008

Typical Coonawarra mint - also cassis, hints of chocolate and blackberry. Sweet on the palate, the oak is dominated by the excellent fruit - great this way rather than the other way round. Medium plus intensity with supple tannins. An excellent Coonawarra Cabernet. Cabernet Sauvignon 60%; Merlot 31%; 9% Shiraz. First of 6. HH’s drinking window through to 2040. Bottled without filtration. — 3 days ago

Kita

Camp 4 Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

Kitá, red blend, Santa Ynez Valley, CA, Vintage 2014, ABV 13.5%. The blend is comprised of 48% Merlot, 38% Cabernet Franc, 9% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 5% Petit Verdot. @kitawines

👁 It had a beautiful purple hue and vibrant notes of black cherry, blackberry, black currant, plum, violets, cedar, nutmeg, vanilla, leather, and tobacco. 👃 👄

I loved learning about the background on this wine and winemaker Tara Gomez, who studied enology with financial help from her tribe, the Santa Ynez Band of Chumash Indians. 💕 Tara has worked with iconic figures in the California wine world — such as Fess Parker and J. Lohr— and has traveled the world, honing her own unique style of winemaking that blends the best of old world and new world techniques. 👏👏👏 @tgomez805

This red blend is made of grapes grown on the Camp 4 Vineyard, purchased by the Santa Ynez Band of Chumash Indians in 2010, when Tara was hired as head winemaker. 🍇🍇 The land was previously cultivated by Fess Parker, who had an influence on Tara’s budding career while interning at Fess Parker Winery during her enology studies.

The word "Kitá" means "Our Valley Oak" in the Santa Ynez Chumash native language of Samala. The wine is speaks to “place” and respect for the land from which it is cultivated. 🌎 🌳 Yields and production are kept small to promote sustainable growing practices and the grapes are harvested by hand and vinified with minimal intervention.
