Buehler Vineyards Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2013The wine is brimming with fruit aromas and flavors biased to the black fruit end of the Cabernet spectrum: plums, blackberry, and black currant. Rich and full-bodied on the palate, this Cabernet drinks well on release but will soften and develop with additional age. For those who seek youthful fresh Cabernet fruit aromas and a more structured wine, drink it from 2015 through 2019. If you prefer the less fruity, more developed bottle bouquet aromas and a softer, more velvety wine on the palate, drink it from 2020-2030.
Mettler Family Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon 2014Our 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon shows off a deep, inky, purple-red color in the glass. It opens with inviting aromas of dark cherry, pepper, tobacco, mineral and earth. The graceful mingling of cherry, dark fruit and sweet oak flavors have a freshness of character and a whisper of clove. On the palate, the plush mouthfeel is moderated by juicy acidity, and the long, tannic finish is reminiscent of a fine Bordeaux. This elegant and poised Cabernet is accessible now, and its structure and complexity will see it through many years of aging.
Owen Roe Sharecropper's Cabernet Sauvignon 2013Always a crowd favorite, the 2013 vintage proves to be another great attempt at creating a fruit forward, yet bold Cabernet Sauvignon. This wine exudes juicy aromas of pomegranate, blackberry and tobacco spice. Flavors of jalapeno, hints of eucalyptus and mint and a balanced mouth-feel finish with bright acidity and firm tannins. We recommend opening this wine now and enjoying it at a young age, however, this will age well for 4-6 years when properly cellared.
Silver Oak Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2012Our Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon reflects over forty years of winemaking in Sonoma County's Alexander Valley, a delicious and seamless expression of Cabernet Sauvignon from this historic California wine region made famous by this varietal. A blend of multiple vineyard sites including our Red Tail, Miraval and Geyserville Estate vineyards, this 100% Cabernet Sauvignon gains complexity through the varied terroir found across Alexander Valley's hillsides, benchlands and valley floor. With exuberant dark fruit flavors and a rich and generous mid-palate, our Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is released six months ahead of our Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon as its approachable, fruit-forward profile lends itself to earlier enjoyment.

Bernard Tornay Brut Carte d'OrThis non-vintage is round and elegant, with fine bubbles. It can be equally enjoyed as an aperitif or to accompany a meal. Hutasse shares the perspective of a large maison in that he places great importance on being able to reproduce a house style year after year. To that end he keeps enormous stocks of reserve still wines. The Carte d'Or is a blend of 70% Pinot Noir and 30% Chardonnay, but includes reserves from the communes of Bouzy, Ambonnay, Trépail, Bisseuil, Tauxières, Les Riceys, Vertus, Mareuil and Epernay. The still reserve wine undergoes a malolactic fermentation, for greater roundness. This Brut Non-Vintage is an assemblage of 70% wine from the most recent harvest and 30% reserve wines which are a minimum of four years old. It is kept sur lattes for up to three years, enhancing its richness, compared to the mandated one year for a non-vintage cuvée. The bottles are cellared for an additional six months in order to integrate the liqueur d'expédition. Dosage: 9g/l.
Byron Santa Maria Valley Pinot Noir 2013The Santa Maria Valley is located on an unusual topographic slice of land known as a transverse range. Unlike the majority of California's wine producing valleys, the orientation is east to west rather than north to south. As a consequence, an unprecedented amount of marine air and accompanying fog is pulled into the vineyards from the nearby Pacific Ocean. The unimpeded flow of cold air from the Pacific Ocean makes our appellation unique.
Clos du Bois Pinot Noir 2015

Aged in French oak fo r15 months, it displays a full body and firm and balanced structure.
