Fortitude 2004 Frediani Field Blend Red (Napa Valley)

Fortitude is a new brand produced at the Etude winery aimed at expressing the grape growers' original intentions. This is an old-style field blend of Charbono, Zinfandel, Carignane and Petite Sirah grown up-valley, near Calistoga. Lovely dark fruit and spice aromas include a few turns of cracked black pepper, then the palate adds some crisp acids to pull everything together. It's a wine with bold fruit, low tannins and food-friendly acids, probably best consumed young.
