The Kuleto Estate Native Son Red beautifully typifies the vintage with its soaring perfume and terrific flavor density without being over-extracted. Each variety presents itself subtly in this seamless blend. The Zinfandel provides the dominant red fruit character, soft tannins, and sweet finish. Kuleto Estate chose a spicy lot of Cabernet Sauvignon to add the bit of pepper to the Zin and to provide some structure. The Sangiovese contributes a juicy front and mid-palate, the Syrah a bit of dark fleshiness, and the Petite Sirah and Alicante a dash of rustic old world or old California spice.
