Behrens Family Winery Sainte Fumée Red Wine 2011 750ml
PlumpJack Merlot 2013 750mlOur Merlot vineyard is in the Oak Knoll region of the Napa Valley, nestled up to the Mayacamas Mountain Range on the west side of the valley. The mild climate and alluvial soils in this region lend this wine great balance and structure. The mild temperatures allow these grapes to develop bright aromatics and flavors, along with a beautiful natural acidity and elegance. The alluvial soils bring darker fruits to the nose and palate, and give this wine its structure and concentration. The 2013 vintage gave this wine aromas of bright, wild raspberry, black cherry, earth, and slate, with the barrels contributing some spice and smoke. The palate is full-bodied and rich, with bright and sweet fruits, such as raspberry and cherry. The wine then reveals earthy notes and finishes with dark chocolate. The robust structure and bright acidity give this wine great tension, balance, and a lengthy finish.
Eric Kent Sonoma Coast Chardonnay 2012 750mlOur 2012 Sonoma Coast Chardonnay showcases the citrus side of the grape, balanced and food friendly, yet seductive in texture. With only 10% new oak, this is often our go-to dinner wine and makes its case on naturally derived, mineral-driven intensity straight from the vineyard.
Carte Blanche Chardonnay 2012 750mlThe 2012 Chardonnay is full of bright fruit and savory notes. Lychee, Bosc Pear, fresh lemon curd and oyster shell mingle on the nose. The palate entry is defined and focused, showing silky tannins that highlight piecrust, Meyer lemon, brioche and crème brulee, while the broad mid-palate leads to a clean and persistent finish.
Andrew Will Ciel du Cheval 2011 750mlLike the previous vintage, the Ciel does not possess any Cabernet Sauvignon in the blend. The wine exhibits hints of damson plum skin, smoke, cardamom and cinnamon. As the wine opens up a secondary layer of minerality reminiscent of river stones emerges. There is a light sense of earth combined with a spiciness that lends itself to a very complex mid palate. The bright, yet focused tannins create a approachable wine that will only become more complex with time.
Rodney Strong Upshot Red Blend 2016 750mlThis wine was made to enhance the enjoyment of life in a fun and inviting way. The Zinfandel that comes off one of our estate vineyards, called Hubbard Ranch, starts as the foundation of the wine and gives it a great sense of place. The Merlot adds a sense of sensuality and softness that invites you in to the heart of the wine. The Malbec is the flesh and soul of the wine. It adds beautiful blue and red fruit and contributes to the mouthfeel with depth and texture. The Petite Verdot is the confidence of the blend and adds intensity and complexity. Lastly, because the wine is about enjoyment, I added a splash of Riesling for the fun…It adds a floral high note. The UPSHOT of blending these varietals is a wine that was made to underscore my passion for blending wine, a place that I love, and my enjoyment for this amazing life I get to live.
