Golden Gate Collection 3 Pack
Give this great gift of a trip across the great California wine country through three delightful bottles. Our Golden Gate Collection features these three exquisite west coast wonders that your friends and family will absolutely love:
2013 Monarch Glen Merlot
This 2012 Merlot is a wine your friends will fall in love with on the first silky, smooth sip you take. Its inviting aromas of sweet berry and cherry jump out of the glass, while harmonious flavors of berry, plum and spice create a deliciously full-bodied taste experience. They’ll enjoy it all on its own around the fireside, or alongside their dinner plate as the perfect complement to roast chicken, beef roast or even thick, juicy burgers.
2013 Black Fox Cabernet
The 2011 Black Fox Cabernet is a fruit-forward classic example of a great California Cabernet. Cabernet Sauvignon is one of the better known red wine grape varietals worldwide. Known as a prominent Bordeaux wine, expect to find it blended with Merlots and Cabernet Franc. California Cabernet’s are regarded nearly as highly as their French cousins, especially after the famed 1976 Judgment of Paris when a California Cab beat out some of Bordeaux’s best in a blind test by French experts.
2013 Cannery Row Chardonnay
Cannery Row was named for the area of Monterey immortalized by John Steinbeck in his novel of the same name. Based in Monterey County along California’s famed Central Coast, the talented winemaker blended fruit from a cool-climate vineyard along the Arroyo Seco riverbed with a small lot from a warm inland valley. The result: a stylish, delicious, classic California Chardonnay. Its fresh fruit aromas lead to flavors of apple, nectarine and ripe juicy melon. A hint of toasty oak and vanilla from oak aging adds depth and complexity, while a balancing acidity keeps it refreshing.
