A completely compelling and delicious red coming from the maker of the popular Gamba Zinfandels, Gus Gamba’s Etrusca Velia poses a stunning display of blueberries, milk chocolate, strawberry jam, and dark cherries.  Saturating your palate with a full gamut of red, blue and black fruits… this stunningly proportioned blend merges ancient Zinfandel, Primitivo and Petit Sirah grapes and delivers a wide spectrum of favors that continually unwind on your palate.  After Robert Parker’s recent visit to the Gamba’s Estate winery, he alerted readers that, “… Gamba’s name is going to have to be included with some of the stars of Sonoma, such as Hartford Court, Carlisle, Bedrock and even the superstar Turley.”

Winery Notes: “The 2016 Velia is a proprietary blend of old vine Zinfandel, Alicante Bouschet, Carignane, and Petite Sirah from our prized, and sought-after partner ranches growing in the Russian River Valley AVA. As unique, compelling and mysterious as Velia herself, dark and lively, the nose offers a bounty of fresh berries and subtle notes of cedar. The framework of this substantial wine is shaped by a foundation built on old vine Zinfandel, offering rich briary patch notes of ripe raspberry, fruit compote, highlighting a creamy, black cherry note with a periphery of black olive, clove and anisette. The Alicante adds texture to the mouthfeel, dimension to the nearly opaque, deep scarlet color, and an appropriate amount of lifting acidy to brighten the flavor profile. The Carignane offers a unique allspice quality that blends seamlessly with the dense structure of the brooding, yet approachable contribution of the gripping, yet forgiving Petite Sirah.”
