We attended Herzog Winery's World Tour Party which took place last evening to a sell out group of people at the Oxnard winery.
There were lots of reasons for the big attendance. Starting with live music, then wonderful appetizers prepared by Tierra Sur chefs and most of all some most interesting Herzog wines from several countries.
It was show time for some new labels and vintages by Herzog including a 2014 Black Tulip red wine from Galilee, robust, hearty and with a long finish.
Another international Herzog wine we tasted was Tierra Seta, a 2010 Chianti classico from Italy.
Herzog continues to be most innovated in producing new wines especially here in California. We liked the Herzog Variations oak wines which are North Coast Cabernet Sauvignon. Some is aged in all new American Oak and some in new French oak barrels.
It is up to the individual to decide which wine is preferred.
Another new label is Jeunesse which are for those preferring sweeter California wines like Black Muscat or Muscato.
The World Tour Party was one of a series of events being produced this summer at the Oxnard winery, some at the highly acclaimed Tierra Sur Restaurant.
