Super Tuscans came about in the late '60s when a few Italian rebels decided to add Bordeaux varietals to Chianti to give them a bit more richness. The resulting wine had great fruit, structure and acid and quickly won the hearts of wine drinkers worldwide. With the Super Alamedan, winemaker Shauna carefully selected fruit from throughout Contra Costa County, which is known for its black tea and tobacco characteristics, and added a dash of Cab from Yountville for extra juiciness.

Check out our interview with winemaker Shauna Rosenblum here.

Vineyard Notes
The Super Alamedan is a blend of Sangiovese, Montepulciano, Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel from around California. This melange is inspired by a ‘super’ blend done in a specific region in a boot shaped country. Using this traditional blending concept, this amalgamation uses Cabernet Sauvignon to enhance the richness of the wine, and since this is a California wine, we also added Zinfandel to fill out the backside of this unique wine. The Sangiovese and Montepulciano are from the Isabella Francesca Vineyard in Contra Costa County, and are surrounded by cherry trees and strawberry fields. The Zinfandel comes from 122-year old vines also from Contra Costa County which have that wonderfully gritty CoCo County terroir flavor profile. The beautiful Cabernet is from Holbrook Mitchell’s vineyard just short of Yountville, and lends a beautiful juicyness to the wine.
Production Notes
These varietals were all fermented independently to showcase their individual flavor and aroma profiles. All were fermented in macro bins, cold soaked and pressed off into about 20% new oak. We blended them together about two months before bottling.
Winemaker Notes
This distinct fusion has intense aromas and flavors of cigar tobacco, plum, strawberry, candied apple, ripe red tomato, dried black tea leaves and rose petals.
