2007 El Jefe de Cultura Reserve
The 2007 Plata Wine Company El Jefe de Cultura Reserve (silver label ~150 cases) pays homage to the lovers of richly styled wine. Crafted from Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah, this wine was created by selecting winemaker/owner Robert Plata's favorite barrels of wine. "I had just one goal... to find the best and tastiest wine from the vintage to craft the Reserve," Robert said. Mission accomplished. The wine shows a forceful perfume of baked blackberry and blueberry pie. On the palate, the fruit is perfectly enhanced with nuances of lavender and Asian spices. As the wine finishes, you are reminded that, even though the wine has weight, it still framed well with fine dusty tannins and the unmistakable addition of French oak.
