1448 - the altitude of the small family winery in the foothills of California's Sierra Nevada Mountains. A blend of the all the wines that don't fit into their varietal program. At the conclusion of barrel aging, each individual barrel is evaluated. If it does not contribute to the expression of the vineyard from which it comes, the wine contributes to the expression of 1448. 1448 - A virtual "kitchen sink" of our award-winning vineyard designated "left-overs", blended to make one seriously good wine for everyday drinking. The 1448 has a big, deep, thick color one would expect from a wine that is 44% Petite Sirah. The aromas feature ripe and juicy black raspberries. The bouquet is full of sweet vanilla hazelnut oak. The flavors are big, rich, and balanced, with plenty of dense ripe black fruits, especially blackberry. The acidity is vibrant, and lends a zesty lift to the fruit flavors. The cooperage contributes to the rich body and luscious mouth-feel, without adding too much in the way of oak tannins. The tannins are mature and well integrated. The finish is soft, smooth, and lingering; a perfect introduction to the Jeff Runquist Wines 'House Style'.
