Château-Smith-Haut-Lafitte Pessac Leognan 2009The style of our red wine is very classic, with a neat expression of our terrior of Gnzian Gravels, which gives the wine some unique smoky notes. We look for elegance and structure, freshness and complexity, balance and richness. The majority of Cabernet Sauvignon grown in our vineyard, harvested at full maturity and vinified in the softest way to only extract the silkiest tannins, unveils after a few years all its potential, which we can then enjoy during long years. The other varietals grown on the estate add to the Cabernet Sauvignon their own flavors and take part to the typical harmony of our Cru Classe de Graves.

This wine possesses a multitude of different facets and nuances that will constantly change and evolve. Although extremely intense, the wine's power is cloaked within its balance and concentration, surging forth as an expansive sensation- the way only the greatest wines can.

We named Mer Soleil after the two forces of nature - the sea and sun - that shape this singular character, and they are every bit as powerful in creating our Pinot as our Chardonnay.

Caymus Special Selection Cabernet Sauvignon 2015Caymus Special Selection is the flagship wine of the Wagner family and is comprised of the very best barrels of the vintage. This wine is not produced in difficult years. Caymus prides itself on producing wines that are as approachable in youth as well at maturity. Aromas and flavors which can only be achieved through "hang time" - a technique which chances the loss of crop if early winter sets in. Leaving the fruit to "hang" on the vine unusually long develops suppleness, increases color, and matures the tannins of the grapes. The wines are abundant in textural tannins yet soft as velvet. Crop thinning, allowing measured sunlight to reach the vine's fruit zone, and waiting for increased ripeness are all part of our viticultural practices. Caymus Cabernets offer a wide array of aromas and flavors including cocoa, cassis and vanilla.
Shafer Red Shoulder Ranch Chardonnay 2017The 2017 offers lush, luxurious aromas and flavors of melon, honeysuckle, apricot, pineapple and flint all held together with effortless structure, elegant balance, and energy that comes from pure, Chablis-like acidity.
Spring Mountain Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2015The 2015 vintage was one of our earliest, bookended by cold, wet weather in the spring that impacted fruit-set and by a warm, dry ripening season in the fall. Crop size was smaller overall, but quality was excellent. We had very small berries and loose clusters that led to even ripening and intensely concentrated flavors. There was a great skin to juice ratio that favored high-quality tannin extraction and concentration. The wines from 2015 show a good balance between freshness and power.
Legit Cabernet Sauvignon 2013#26 - Wine Spectator's Top 100 of 2019 The wine has a deep ruby red color. The nose displays hints of green pepper, licorice and graphite melted with oak vanilla flavors. Full bodied with a ripe fruit palate, LEGIT has the potential to age for a long period of time, which is typical of the Cabernet Sauvignon produced in the Castelnuovo Berardenga Area.
Faust Cabernet Sauvignon 2017For Faust we seek to express the complexity of Cabernet Sauvignon and the diversity of the Napa Valley by sourcing from estate vineyards in Coombsville and Rutherford and small lots from spectacular mountain AVAs such as Atlas Peak, Mount Veeder and Howell Mountain. The culmination of these exceptional appellations results in a prodigious expression of Cabernet Sauvignon-or put simply, one damn good Cabernet.
Orin Swift 8 Years In The Desert Red 2018An opaque core with a red amethyst rim, the wine opens with ripe raspberry and blackberry, dark plum preserves and hints of black pepper and clove. An entry of heft, the palate is packed with blueberry and sweet black cherry along with touch of fresh herbs-thyme, savory and tarragon. Long on the finish, the ripe tannins, a dash of ash, and notes of black tea round out the wine.
Far Niente Chardonnay 2018Buy Far Niente Chardonnay online from Vine Republic if you enjoy a Napa Valley white with tropical aromas. Citrus and melon aromas immediately take over your nose, and they are complemented by honeysuckle and toasted oak. This 2013 vintage has a juicy entry of lush citrus that transitions quickly into a vibrant and oily palate. The finish is clean and refreshing with some mineral hints, which gives this wine a well-integrated progression that builds to a clean and refreshing finish.
Belle Glos Las Alturas Vineyard Pinot Noir 2018The Spanish term 'Las Alturas' means 'the heights', a fitting name for this vineyard located on one of the highest grape-growing benches in the Santa Lucia Highlands AVA up to 1200 feet. At this elevation, the sunny but very cool climate creates a wine bearing all the hallmarks of this coastal region: robust, expressive, full bodied and balanced by a firm acidity. Nestled between the Santa Lucia Mountains and the western side of Salinas Valley, Las Alturas benefits from early morning fog which rolls in most days from Monterey Bay then burns off within a few hours. Gusty winds funnel in from the bay throughout the afternoon, moderating the overall temperature and contributing to one of the longest growing seasons in California. The high winds also result in smaller berries with very thick skins, giving us more color concentration. Another attractive characteristic of this vineyard is the low-vigor, free-draining sub-soil made up of a calcareous base underneath a layer of sandy loam. This complements our farming techniques to further reduce our yields per vine and augment the fruit's intensity.
Belle Glos Clark & Telephone Pinot Noir 2018
