Sineann Cabernet Sauvignon Baby Poux 2014$47.00
Sineann Cabernet Sauvignon Baby Poux 2014 isn't really a baby anymore. Named back in 1998, it was made from a newer section of the famed Champoux Vineyard. Nearly two decades later, the baby's all grown up. The vines aren't babies anymore, but the name remains. Intense aromas of creamy black cherry, bittersweet chocolate, and a hint of dried herbs. Super dense in the mouth, with flavors echoing the aroma. Cassis and mineral notes emerge with time. Delicious Champoux fruit! The Baby Poux block of Paul Champoux's vineyard combines great Cab intensity with a remarkable approachability that Cabernet just doesn't often deliver. Sineann has used fruit from Baby Poux since it's first year of production and it has always had that approachable quality. Much to our delight, as the vineyard ages (it is now 18 years old) it is growing in depth and complexity. Where will it all lead to? We don't know, but it's fun going along for the ride and it's fun saying Baby Poux!! (This picture is of the 2009 vintage – 2014 pics are hard to find!)
Sean Minor Four Bears Cabernet Sauvignon 2015, Paso Robles California USA$20.00
Sean Minor was born in Kansas but he began his career in the wine industry after a formal education in finance from Arizona State University where he also met his wife, Nicole. They moved to California after graduation, where he began working for Napa Valley’s Beaulieu Vineyard. At the same time he took classes at U.C. Davis in Viticultural and Enology in hopes of developing a further understanding of grape growing and wine production. Then Sean moved to the Pacific Northwest after being recruited by King Estate Winery (widely renown for producing Oregon’s largest and most highly regarded Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris) to manage the Estate. He met Will Bucklin, King Estate’s then winemaker, and developed an even stronger knowledge of winemaking and gained a lifelong friend. Sean learned firsthand the importance of site-specific viticulture, and ended up leaving King Estate to lead Benton Lane Winery then the family returned to California in 2001 where Sean had the opportunity to manage Renwood Winery and enhance his wine experience growing and marketing some of the Golden State’s best Zinfandel and Syrah. Four years later, he founded Sean Minor Wines.
This lovely Paso Robles Cabernet Sauvignon is ruby in color and displays aromas of lavender, cedar and raspberry fruit. Flavors of blackberries and raspberries combined with hints of savory spices coat the palate. The soft tannins and sweet oak balance lead to a long and lingering finish.
Collier Falls Cabernet Sauvignon 2014, Dry Creek Valley$50.00
The wine is deep, dark red in color with aromas of black cherry, tobacco, and cedar box. This is a rich and complex hillside Cabernet with notes of earth, blackberry, and Christmas spice along with velvety tannins and a soft vanilla finish. We recommend 20-30 minutes of decanting to fully showcase its soft flavors and lingering finish of dark fruit.
