Truchard Estate Merlot 2016, Carneros$34.00
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.
2019 Ghost Block Sauvignon Blanc Morgaen Lee Vineyard Napa Valley USA$28.00
The “ghosts” honored on the Ghost Block Morgaen Lee Sauvignon Blanc 2019 label are pioneer winemakers who rest in peace in the tiny 150-year-old cemetery near the 100% organic Rock Cairn Vineyard. This bright and silky sur lie aged Sauvignon Blanc exhibits aromas of peach, pineapple, and guava. This wine has lively acidity, with a beautiful citrus backbone. The little Semillon blended in gives the wine a nice mouth feel, along with the sur lie technique. There is an underlying current of dough/yeast — creating a unique singlevineyard style from Yountville. This Sauvignon Blanc has a richer, more complex, silky mouth feel with a hint of white grapefruit on the clean & bright finish.
2018 Trecini Merlot, Russian River Valley, California, USA$35.00
The 2018 Trecini Merlot comes from the Dunn Vineyard, which sits in the low-lying eastern foothills of Sonoma County in a slightly warmer region of the Russian River Valley. The vines grow in well drained gravely soils on a westerly facing slope which allowed the grapes to ripen slowly and capture the last bit of the sun’s afternoon warmth, an essential factor in this much cooler vintage. Memorable, the Merlot brings a richer mouth-feel, with a rich velvet texture. The lower alcohol allows for these deeper complex textures and dimensions to come together and produce a distinctive classic Merlot more reminiscent of Europe than California. Trecini Merlot shows off delicious red fruit characters, with some whiffs of dried herbs and a touch of tobacco. Suitable for drinking now, we believe that this wine has enough natural acidity and structure to be consumed for several years to come.
