2013 Pico Malbec
Why is it that Malbec from Argentina is so popular? Clues point to the fact that Argentina’s climate, soil, and dedication to making the best wine for the dollar make this is an easy thing to solve. Our latest discovery, Pico and its delicious fruit hail from Mendoza, the beating heart of Malbec for Argentina. It’s their Napa and it is such for a very good and obvious reason. Still not sure why? Well you have to taste this wine to understand but to give you an idea of your missing, this wine has smoky aromas interwined with blood orange and dark berries. Its’ flavor profile is a salute to the homeland of Malbec, Cahors in France. It drinks profoundly with dark fruits such as blackberry with herbaceous notes, and that nice overlay of smoky, destined to be best friends with many grilled meats. It’s full bodied, has a personality, and has a finish that can please the wine drinker in all of us.
2013 River's End Merlot
From two of the oldest vineyards along California's North Coast region where the Russian River meets the Pacific Ocean. The region known for ideal climate promotes slow, even maturing and great flavor development. A wonderful wine from the River’s End winemakers with ripe berry fruit flavors and aromas with a nice touch of oak. An amazingly versatile choice for serving with grilled duck, turkey, chicken, braised lamb, pork or beef – and a nice partner for dishes featuring a rich tomato sauce.
2013 Sierra Trails Zinfandel
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. These remarkable fragrances are echoed in the flavoring where a hint tobacco, black pepper spice and sweet oak lifts the fruit and carry them through a lingering finish.
2012 Spencer Family Cask One Red Blend
Fill up your cart with this deliciously smooth, robust red. Sweet black fruit aromas added to layers of ripe black cherry and plum flavors reflect a heavenly marriage of Cabernet Sauvignon, Grenache and Syrah. Forward fruit flavors and a velvety texture make this a go-to red wine for every day enjoyment.
2013 N'Gumu Grenache - Shiraz
Ngumu is a brand that reminds us of the hard work it took to transform the rugged landscape of the Western Cape into the world renowned wine region it is today. South Africa’s first wine production was in 1685, but decimated by Phylloxera, this region didn’t see a resurgence until the 1970’s. Today, Western Cape is back on the world stage and both Grenache and Shiraz are amongst the most widelyplanted grapes of the region. This wine has a nose that opens with dark fruits of plum, black cherry and loads of clove, cashew, pine and a hint of violet. Bright fruit character opens on the mouthfeel with black cherry and ripe wild berries. This wine is well structured from good tannin presence and the finish is long and lasting.
