Mount Peak Sentinel Cabernet Sauvignon 2014A muscular wine with deep tannins, a rich mouthfeel, sumptuous fruit and tremendous potential for aging. Forceful, concentrated notes of ripe currants, blackberry and cherry layered with hints of anise and toasted cedar, echo through a long, plush finish that is framed with sweet cream.
Elouan Pinot Noir 2016Rich, dark and intense fruit flavors take top billing in this 2016 Elouan Pinot Noir, a wine that beautifully reflects the warm and dry growing season. Dark ruby in color, the wine powers up with aromatics of plum pie, mixed-berry jam and smoky, game-bird characteristics that set the stage for flavors of cherry, blackberry, boysenberry and smoked bacon. The balance is excellent, with solid structure, superb depth and concentration, rich tannins, and a nice smoky, earthy finish. Pair with roasted lamb chops with garlic and herb red potatoes, wild mushroom polenta, or goat cheese and walnut endive salad with raspberry balsamic drizzle.
Il Poggione Brunello di Montalcino 2015Ruby red tending to garnet, very intense, persistent nose with red fruit notes. Warm, balanced flavour with velvet-smooth tannins. Long-lasting aroma.
Caymus Red Schooner Voyage 6This Malbec is made from grapes grown in the Andes Mountains, shipped chilled to Napa Valley and produced with the same techniques as our Caymus Cabernet. Falling outside standard labeling rules, it does not include a vintage date but is known by the voyage from which it traveled (Voyage 6 is the 2015 vintage). Offering scents of ripe plums and cherries, this wine is powerful and supple, with flavors of French oak and soft tannins.
Schrader Cellars Double Diamond Cabernet Sauvignon 2016The 2016 vintage of Double Diamond opens with layered, intriguing aromas of black currants, dark cherries, blackberry, cherry compote, toast, and oak spice with notes of herbs, pine cone, and dried earth. In the mouth, the palate is rich and juicy, bursting with big, rich flavor. The tannin structure makes this a great wine to enjoy upon release, but it will also mellow nicely for the next two to six years.
Le Ragose Amarone della Valpolicella Classico 2008Le Ragose Amarone shows dense, ripe and lush berries with a hint of dark chocolate. This is a wine of power and elegance, harmonic and enticing. The finish is long and satisfying. Excellent with wild game birds, wild goat, risotto all'Amarone, Gorgonzola cheese, dark chocolate desserts, cheesecakes, hazelnut and almond desserts.
Mer Soleil Reserve Pinot Noir 2017With the alluring color of dark plums, this wine features scents of ripe cherries with cocoa, pomace, blueberry, toasted wood and a soft, powdery whiff of old-fashioned lipstick. The palate is all about texture - entry is soft, with a round, complete quality. Flavors of cherry cobbler mingle with cola notes and hints of anise. Tannins are structured yet extremely fine, providing a lush, lingering mouth feel. On the finish, a wisp of acidity adds balance and freshness, a reminder of this wine's origins in a cool, coastal region of California.
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.
Caymus-Suisun Grand Durif 2017Petite Sirah wines are typically deep, dark, rich, and inky, with concentrated flavors of blueberry, plum, backberry, black pepper, sweet baking spice, leather, and cigar box, and chewy, chocolatey tannins. Notes of vanilla and coconut can be found in examples with significant amounts of new oak. Petite Sirah's full body and bold fruit make it an ideal match for barbecue, especially brisket with a slightly sweet sauce, and other rich meat dishes. The variety's heavy tannins call for fatty protein and strong flavors that won't get drowned out by the wine.
Faust Cabernet Sauvignon 2017The 2017 Faust Cabernet is a blend of our estate vineyards in Coombsville and Rutherford and mountain sourcing in Atlas Peak, Mount Veeder and Howell Mountain. Intense yet fresh with juicy blue and black notes. Notes of dark chocolate and dried herbs seduce the palate while silky tannins and lifting acidity leads to a layered and lingering finish.

Belle Glos Las Alturas Vineyard Pinot Noir 2018Deep garnet in color with an aromatic medley of black cherry, marionberry, ripe plum and a hint of anise. Dark fruit on the palate with flavors of wild berries, caramelized oak and cacao nibs complemented by subtle notes of vanilla, cedar and a hint of lavender and forest floor. Rich and unrestrained, this wine's abundant fruit is beautifully balanced by firm acidity and layers of red and black fruit.
Belle Glos Clark & Telephone Pinot Noir 2018Deep ruby red in color with scarlet highlights, Clark & Telephone opens with bountiful aromas of red fruits of cranberry and raspberry jam, laced with clove, cedar, and holiday baking spices.
