Pazzo (which means “crazy” in Italian) is a wine crafted by ace winemaker Kirk Venge. It is an unpretentious blend of Cabernet, Sangiovese, Syrah and Petite Sirah. It is a wine that Parker called “Sexy, seductive, provocative” and “The best value Bistro wine from Napa” as well as “Gorgeously hedonistic, flavorful”. In other words, a wine you should jump on now.

This “crazy” wine is a real crowd pleaser that was crafted was star winemaker Kirk Venge. The 2012 vintage, as you know is a knock-out year, is a stunning blend of some of Claus’ best barrels of Cab, Sangio, Syrah and Petite Sirah. An ingratiating wine that is wonderful to drink in its youth. In addition to its good looks, it displays a nose of red berry aromas and follows through with spirited, sweet, lingering, fruit flavors. The Cabernet gives it structure, density and black fruit flavors. The Sangiovese offers a “wow” factor of acidity, cherry-berry goodness, and an amazingly fragrant nose that has you craving another glass. Syrah and Petite Sirah add a bolder richer component and also helps give Pazzo its deep color. The balance of fruit, oak and tannin is perfect for drinking now. I’d call this wine delicious!
