Argentina has near perfect conditions for the cultivation of grapes. Hot days allow for fully ripened grapes and cool nights provide complexity. Desert-like conditions mean the vineyards are typically healthy and need minimal intervention - most of Argentina has never been touched by Phyloxera. Rainfalls of 200mm (8inches) per year mean that irrigation is important. An elaborate canal system, dating back to the Pre-Colombian Incan Empire, distributes mountain spring water from the Andes to the many vineyards of Mendoza. Soils are mostly alluvial clay, sand and rock, low in organic material, which help naturally control vine vigor and yield and provides excellent drainage. The location of Mendoza in the high altitude Andean foothills with vineyards averaging between 3,000 and 5,000 feet above sea level is an important part of what makes this region unique.

Sans Liege The Offering Red 2016#20 - Wine Spectator's Top 100 of 2019 When you arrive the celebration is raging, much like the huge bonfire in the center of the crowd. You are met with scents of anise, mulling spices, kirsch and leather. A friend claps you on the back and hands you a bowl crafted from juniper proclaiming “wassail!” “Drink hail” you chorus with the rest of the group, taking a gulp and passing it on. Treats of olive tapenade and plums with cinnamon are shared as the merriment continues into the night.
RouteStock Route 116 Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir 2017#66 - Wine Spectator's Top 100 of 2019 The wine has a vibrant garnet color with an amazingly high-toned explosive nose of wild thyme, blood orange peel, raspberry and shiitake mushrooms. The palate is quite bright and lively with acidity and yet warm with flavors of orange blossom, red fruits, orange peel, well integrated French oak and thyme. There is a great generous fresh forward varietal fruit to the wine making it great to drink now or over the next few years. The balance of the wine keeps it fresh and at the same time mouth filling with expansive flavors. The wine finishes with a beautiful mouth-watering savory character that brings you back for glass after glass!

Annabella Special Selection Cabernet Sauvignon 2017
Bogle Cabernet SauvignonDeeply extracted cherry and bright cassis arrest the senses, holding captive on both the nose and the palate. Swiftly followed by red currant jam and black pepper, the supple mouthfeel fills out this full-bodied wine. Toasty coconut and spicy oak from the American oak heightens the dense fruit, and the wine finishes with stellar tannins softened by just a hint sweet pipe tobacco. A few of our favorite pairings, rib-eye steak with blue cheese butter, roasted eggplant with provolone cheese, dark chocolate mousse with fresh berries.
