Orsi Papale Estate Wines

Orsi Papale Estate Wines These three wines represent our inaugural release. Bernie Orsi and Lawrence Papale have been friends for over thirty years. Friendship turned to partnership in 1995 when we crushed our first small lot of Orsi Papale wine. Bernie's exceptional vineyards in the Dry Creek and Russian River appellations of Sonoma County and Lawrence's keen interest in making French-style Cabernets and Burgundies created an opportunity we could not resist. Several County Fair blue ribbons later, we present our first commercial vintage. We believe in letting our estate wine grapes work their own magic. As we say on the bottle: La poesia del vino e scrita nella vigna. The poetry of the wine is written in the vineyard.

  Dry Creek Cabernet
The color is deep and the mouth-feel is full and round and the aromas combine dark fruit and tobacco in this 100% cabernet. The flavors of this wine hint at blackberry and chocolate with leather and cedar tones. This wine is ready now, but could also keep another five to seven years due to its tannin structure.
  La Mescalanza
Cabernet/Merlot Blend. This wine has ripe and luscious red fruit flavors, showing elegance and power from its balanced acidity. It is a medium-bodied wine with a soft finish.
  Russian River Pinot Noir
This Burgundian-style wine is rich in body with persistent strawberry and red cherry flavors tempered by herb notes and toast across the palette. It is an elegant, medium-bodied wine with a soft mouth-feel and good acid which contributes to a long finish.
