What is 33? It's a lot of things actually. It's the year that prohibition was lifted (1933), but more importantly it's the number (or version of the number...that's some real trivia there) of nearly all the Newman cars that Adam has in his collection.
The gentleman driver would show up to the track on race day, and use the number 33. If there was another driver with that number, the number could be easily changed to 38, or 83 or 88 with just some white tape.
It's a versatile number, and this is a very versatile wine. Good for a romantic evening, or for a bbq.
33 Chardonnay shows it’s breeding with tropical and citrus Santa Barbara fruit flavors, rich mouth-feel from sur lies aging with batonage, the lovely vanilla spicy oak nuances of barrel fermentation and aging, as well as a delicious touch of butter via the malolactic fermentation; all-in-all a holistic wonder for your imbibing pleasure.
Cabernet Sauvignon 33 captures deeper flavors of tobacco, clove, coco, green peppercorn and leather from the barrel-aged Plummer fruit, with hints of dark blackberry and cherry from our clone 8 Estate fruit. These layers of flavors are supported by fine and supple tannins derived from the well matured skins of the late October harvested fruit and 26 months of barrel-age gave ample time for the marriage of grape flavors with spicy French oak, even more layers of flavors.
