River's End Cabernet Sauvignon
Monterey’s Salinas Valley, the home of this delicious Cabernet Sauvignon, receives intense sunshine throughout the day. At night, cool air funnels in from the Pacific Ocean, giving the vines optimal balance to fully ripen. With all these gifts from Mother Nature, the end result is a Cabernet expressive in flavor. The careful process of crafting this wine by hand has led to flavors of black currant, cherry, red bell pepper, and baking spices. All in all, River’s End Cabernet Sauvignon is a youthful wine that drinks full and is satisfying all around.
Pretium Red Blend
The region of Buzet AOC in Southwest France is known for producing quality Bordeaux style blends. The primary grapes of Buzet, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Malbec, and Merlot are great by themselves, but when blended together, the results are wines with deep personalities. Pretium is a blend of 60% Merlot and 40% Malbec with grapes only from vineyards in Buzet, located along the Garonne River. The winemaking team combines traditional winemaking techniques with modern equipment—a fusion of ideology in winemaking that yields an elegant profile of red fruits and spice in a well-balanced mouthfeel and a delicate finish.
