Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
Rancho de Gallegos, owned by Ignacio’s brother Maurilio Gallegos, is nestled in the heart of Rutherford on Napa Valley’s main Highway 29. It is one of the oldest merlot producing vineyards in the Napa Valley, with the first vines being planted in the late 1980s. This vineyard has been cared for by Maurilio and his sons since its first planting. Its low yields provide for a merlot grape intense with color and flavor unique to its site and farming practices. Our petite sirah grapes come from an east facing petite sirah block in the eastern hills of Rutherford. Morning sunlight and afternoon shade provide the dense color and delicate tannins.
Production Notes
This wine aged in 30% new French oak and 70% neutral French oak barrels.
Winemaker Notes
The 2013 Gallegos Dos Hermanos Proprietary Red Blend, a blend of 50% Merlot and 50% Petite Sirah, has a dense purple color, with full fruit components of plum, blueberry and black raspberry. The tannins of the Petite Sirah are not intrusive, and the wine is full-bodied, opulent and age-worthy. Petite Sirah is capable of aging 20-25 years. Merlot from cousin Maurilo Gallegos Rancho De Gallegos provides intense color and flavor. This is an intriguing and impressive wine that’s opaque purple with plenty of personality. - Eric Gallegos, Winemaker
