Vermeil’s 2009 XXXIV Proprietary Red Wine is sourced from the Frediani, Luvisi, Kenifeck, and York Creek Vineyards – all in the Calistoga region of Napa Valley. The wine was named to honor Super Bowl XXXIV (34), the game Coach Dick Vermeil won with the St. Louis Rams. Deep ruby in color, the Proprietary Red Wine has aromas of dried cherry, cassis, licorice, and herbs with subtle hints of vanilla. The palate is rich and ripe with flavors of plums, crushed black pepper, and hints of green olive that linger on the finish.
