Coastal Passage Pinot Noir
Pinot Noir is one of those grapes that can only be grown in very small climate pockets around the world. Unlike Cabernet and Syrah, that can grow in more broad areas, Pinot produces unique flavor profiles based on region and California is one of the greats. You get intense fruit medium body out of these specific growing regions. The result is Coastal Passage Pinot Noir, a very expressive wine aromatically with lychee, cranberry, cola, raspberry, and red cherries abounding with hints of cinnamon and clove, wildflowers and cacao. This wine has a bright, food-friendly profile. The perfect companion to any foods with spice.
Bear Hug Barrel Select Cabernet Sauvignon
First pass with your nose brings enticing aromas ripe cherries, flowers, and cotton candy. After your nose has had its fill of this intriguing blend of aromatic flavors, it’s time take the first sip. Savor bright cherries, cassis, ripe blackberries and contributes to a mouth feel that is full and pleasing with a smooth, easy going finish. All in all, a great wine for the money. Unfortunately, this wine is in limited quantities so get all the Bear Hug you can get your arms around, while you can.
Center Cut Cabernet Sauvignon
A full bodied red wine that brings out the flavors of spiced grilled meats and veggies. Distinctively complex, this full-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon establishes itself with aromas of deep blackberry, dark plum, and hints of currant, continuing on to rich, round flavors of espresso, dark chocolate, and cedar smoke layered with toasty oak.
Center Cut Merlot
Merlot has seen a rise in consumption in the past few years and wine drinkers are taking notice. Merlot is a versatile grape and a staple in some of the world's finest wines, if Bordeaux has taught us a thing or two. Well, we found a new producer from Central California that is a cut above the rest. An incredibly versatile wine, Center Cut Merlot offers up rich aromas of dried fig, black currant, and cinnamon. Flavors of anise, licorice, and blackberry jam dominate the palate with notes of clove and caraway.
El Portal Vineyard Select Red Blend
Both Zinfandel and Merlot are popular grapes on their own and this combination with Syrah proves that the sum can be greater than its parts. Concentrated blackberry and cherry aromas are joined by notes of black currant, plum, spice and violet. Fruit forward flavors are accented with a touch of sweet tobacco and spice. A smooth texture and ripe tannins make this wine very food friendly.
James and Bell Zinfandel
After two solid days tasting Zinfandels at the annual ZAP festival in San Francisco (the largest gathering of Zinfandel winemakers and enthusiasts in the world), this wine captured our attention immediately – unpretentious, understated and easy drinking. Aromas focus on sweet berry and licorice. Delicate fruit flavors complement the aromas while gentle tannins permit the flavors to shine through a nicely structured texture.
