- This is a delicious,
dry, non-vintage Italian sparkling wine produced with grapes
from the heart of Prosecco country: Valdobbiadene. The color
is brilliant straw-yellow, enlivened by its strands of tiny
bubbles. The aromas are fresh and rich, with notes of apple
and pear and a hint of citrus fading into the floral bouquet.
The mouth is soft yet dry, thanks to its good acidity. The
perfect aperitif, or a good complement to the “Baked Clams”
recipe from our Wines
- The premium fruit
for this Australian Sauvignon Blanc was strictly harvested
in the cool hours of the Eden Valley night to maintain freshness.
It is best consumed fresh to fully appreciate the varietal
flavors, though aging will add some complexity. It is straw
colored with lemon hints, and has an herbaceous display of
asparagus, gooseberry and grapefruit. The palate shows some
rich, creamy texture with a crisp sorbet finish, very clean
and flinty. This non-oaked wine goes perfectly with seafood,
salads and spicy Asian cuisine.
- This Pinot Noir comes
from carefully chosen spots throughout California where growing
conditions contribute to optimum hang time. The longer the
time on the vine, the more concentrated the fruit character,
resulting in wines of distinctive, delicious varietal expression.
This is a wine of vivid red fruit with hints of spice, a lithe
texture, and graceful length on the palate.
- This Cotes du Rhone-Villages
blend of 70% Grenache and 30% Syrah is delicious. It really
shows the ripeness of the vintage, with a wide, almost exotic
range of crushed blueberry, boysenberry and blackberry fruit,
liberally layered with graphite, woodspice and tobacco notes.
The long, racy finish is filled with graphite and licorice.
Drink now through 2019.
- Aged for 12 months
in all French oak barrels, this Lodi, California Merlot produces
aromas of rich, ripe cherries and blackberries, with hints
of toast and vanilla which coalesce into a single sensation
of olfactory bliss. The mouth is filled with an array of
flavors, including cherry, plum, cranapple, sweet raspberries
and strawberries, with lingering hints of cocoa and cinnamon,
while supple tannins leave a pleasing finish.
- The Lodi region boasts
the largest number of Zinfandel plantings of any viticultural
region, with almost 40% of California’s 52,000+ acres of Zinfandel
planted here. Vines as old as 100 years of age from these vineyards
produce grapes of serious complexity and intensity.
Luscious ripe blackberry, rhubarb, and black cherry aromas carry through to the
palate, with toasty vanilla notes appearing on the finish from the 10 months
spent in American oak. A small dose of Petite Sirah adds intensity and rich tannic
structure to the ripe, jammy Zinfandel fruit.
