ABOUT BLACK’S STATION
Back in the 1800’s … Due east of Napa, tucked away in northern California’s rolling Dunnigan Hills, is a little town called Zamora. Back in the late 1800’s, folks used to call it Black’s Station. At its height, this hub founded by J.J. Black boasted a hotel, two stores, a jail, blacksmith shops and a town hall. Today we grow our grapes in Zamora and we’d like to think that the wines carry with them the character and frontier-style of the old town.
The review highlights the 2014 Black’s Station Red Blend as a substantial wine, from the dark, dark color to the ripe but dry fruit flavors….full bodied, hefty in mouthfeel, blending oaky spice accents with blueberry and blackberry flavors. We couldn’t agree more, this wine embraces the bold spirit of the pioneer town for which it is named. Click here for the full review.
