"Delicato Family Vineyards is pleased to announce the launch of Juxtapoz, a discerning, new luxury red wine blend from California's decorated North Coast. Crafted from an artist's perspective by Napa Valley winemaker John Killebrew, Juxtapoz is a provocative exhibition of depth, flavor and intrigue. The wine's modern style is reflected in the label, which features the progressive artwork of emerging Spanish artist, Gabriel Moreno.
Killebrew juxtaposes contrasting red grape varieties and growing regions in the North Coast to add layers of dimension and complexity to the finished wine. The inaugural 2012 vintage features a blend of Syrah, Zinfandel, Petite Sirah, Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon, with more than 76 percent of the grapes hailing from Napa Valley.
The Juxtapoz label, an original piece of art commissioned by Barcelona native, Gabriel Moreno, channels Killebrew's approach to achieving depth and texture in the wine by using fine lines and vibrant color to juxtapose two views of one woman, interlaced to reveal the many layers of her personality." - Winery Notes
