Frugal Fun Day Mixed Case
Your Frugal Fun Day mixed case includes:
Black Fox Cabernet Sauvignon
With its flavors of raspberry, cherry, with hints of cassis, and cedar, Black Fox dances on your tongue with its vibrant tannins, light mouth feel, and a finish that doesn’t linger too long.
A rich, full-bodied red wine with nearly as much character as its namesake and inspiration, Sam Brannan, California’s first millionaire and 1800’s bon vivant. The Napa Valley, especially Calistoga, owes a debt of gratitude to Brannan, who was a pioneer, dreamer and dauntless scoundrel. While his business practices and ethics were frequently questioned by his 19th century contemporaries, Brannan's ambition and colorful legacy enriched the valley and its history. The 2012 vintage Zinfandel is a muscular, yet restrained Zinfandel displaying the essence of blackberry bramble and raspberry jam balanced by a thread of licorice, leather, cedar and exotic spice.
Full of ripe fruit right from the outset. Raspberry, strawberry, plum and black currant notes can all be found, even on the nose. These flavors continue through the palate to the finish. This wine aims to be one that can be opened anytime and pair with your favorite everyday foods like pizza, pasta, and grilled meats.
Qapay Reserve Syrah

Coming to us from some of the oldest Zinfandel plantings in California, the Sierra Trails Old Vine Zinfandel is a complex wine offering aromas of ripe berry, dried plum and red currants.
