September 2008

Wine of the month for September is Blackjack Ranch 2004 Harmonie. This wine is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, and Petit Verdot. An outstanding blend and a bargain dollar for dollar. The Blackjack website describes it as being dramatically underpriced. The notes state it will drink well for the next 10-20 years. On the Blackjack ranch website the 2004 Harmonie is priced at $35.00, however, I purchased it locally a bit less. The wine was aged in 100% French oak or as the notes state, ‘French oak all the way”. These bordeaux style blends of Harmonie wine have all scored 90+ points from Robert Parker. The 2004 is not yet rated. Previous blends are selling for up to $100.00 per bottle. Funny how a good rating can play a part in the price. Anyway, another interesting tidbit about Blackjack Ranch winery is that it was featured in the movie Sideways. It was the second winery of six that Jack and Miles visited. Pick up a bottle today!
