Bacio Divino was founded by Claus Janzen in 1993. While working in Switzerland, he fell in love with Burgundy in particular, a Chorey-les- Beaune. His passion led him to France where he spent a year and a half visiting the top properties in the Rhone, Provence and Burgundy. In the late 1980s, Claus visited Napa Valley and met Charlie Wagner, founder of Caymus Vineyards and became friends with Charlie’s son Chuck Wagner. After 12 years at Caymus, Claus launched Bacio Divion in 1993. Bacio Divino – Italian for divine kiss – is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Sangiovese, Petite Sirah, Syrah and Merlot, the cepage will vary depending on the vintage. Bacio Divino owns three, eight acre hillside vineyards located in Dutch Henry Canyon near Howell Mountain. Wine consultants Nils and Kirk Venge advise Claus on winemaking and viticulture decisions.

Tasting notes
A dark ruby color, the wine offers aromas of blackberry and cassis, with hints of sweet vanilla. On the palate, rich and elegant fruit forward flavors integrate nicely with nuances of toasty oak.

Technical notes
(65% Cabernet Sauvignon/15% Sangiovese/13% Merlot/3% Petite Sirah/2% Syrah/2% Viognier). The Cabernet Sauvignon was harvested from the Beckstoffer To Kalon vineyard, the estate’s Cloudy’s Vineyard and the Georges III vineyard. The remainder of the fruit was harvested from 18 different parcels situated throughout Napa Valley. The wine aged for 22 months in new French oak barrels and another 10 months in bottle.
