Truchard Estate Merlot 2015, Carneros$34.00Add to cart
This Merlot is harvested from five separate hillside locations throughout the Truchard Estate Vineyard. The wines from these hillsides each have their own identity, and each contributes different characteristics to the final blend. Cabernet Franc is added in to provide additional softness and complexity. Spiced aromas of ripe plum, wild blueberry, and cassis with a touch of cedar, earth, and subtle mint. The mouth is smooth and round – layered with bright flavors of black cherries, red currants, and sweet vanilla. Ripe tannins fill the palate and provide an elegant finish of dried red fruits.
Selene Sauvignon Blanc 2015 Musque selection$19.00Add to cart
The Selene Hyde Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc 2015 comes from Hyde Vineyards, located in the Carneros Region of Napa between Highway 12 and Old Sonoma Road. This is a relatively warm part of the Carneros, since it's further from the cooling influences of fog and wind from nearby San Francisco Bay.
Bosc pear, vanilla crème anglais, green tiger fig, Meyer lemon, honeydew melon, and chrysanthemum. All of these aromatics translate very well on the palate. The flavor concentration has a wonderful intensity and impact in the mouth, with that just right balance between rich viscosity and good acidity. Only 381 cases made.
Happy Canyon “Piocho” Sauvignon Blanc 2016, Happy Canyon$25.00Add to cart
The Happy Canyon “Piocho” Sauvignon Blanc 2016 exhibits floral aromas with a hint of brioche toast, honeysuckle, figs and a zesty citrus note. The Sauvignon Blanc provides a lift and perfect accompaniment to the Semillon with varietal aromas of grass and tropical fruit. The wine shows pear and apple with nice wood tones with creaminess on the mid-palate that gives way to a hint of vanilla. It delivers a very rich mouth feel with a good acid backbone. Smoothly balances energy and weight and finishes with excellent clarity and mineral-driven persistence.
This is a fantastic summer wine!.
