Matthew Kipper, owner of Virgil's Vineyards, will speak about 2010's The Smuggler's Son, A California blend of Old Vine Zinfandel with a backbone of Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah from the Napa Valley floor. Petite Sirah and Carignane complete the blend.
This wine is a tribute to Virgil Kipper, family winemaker and prohibition smuggler from Detroit - and is an elegant, well-balanced velvety and expressive wine with layers of blueberry, vanilla, pepper and cocoa. A wine tasting will take place from 5:30 - 6:00 pm. Mr. Kipper will be available to sign bottles of 2010's The Smuggler's Son.
