Tasting Notes

2013 Wonderment Zinfandel, Bacigalupi Vineyard, Russian River Valley, Sonoma

$53 / $47 club price

Classic Violet in color with an attractive bright cherry nose.  The palate exhibits an intensity of spice, white pepper surrounded by red & black fruits.  The velvety texture reveals a long finish with strong acidity and well integrated tannins.

2015 Wilson Reserve Zinfandel, Dry Creek, Sonoma County

$34 / $30 club price

We’ll create our own notes on this wine

2013 Napa Cellars Merlot, Napa Valley

$33 / $29 club price

The 2013 Napa Cellars Napa Valley Merlot boasts aromas of black currant, raspberry and hints of thyme herbs on the nose. Subtle notes of tea leaf and cola lead to remarkable, opulent flavors of ripe plum, cherry, mushroom and white pepper on the palate. This wine showcases balanced acidity, which frames the full-bodied and round tannins, and extending through the finish.

2013 Twomey Merlot, Napa Valley

$80 / $72 club price

We’ll create our own notes on this wine

2014 Elizabeth Spencer Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley

$51 / $45 club price

A wine with tremendous concentration and intensity of flavors. Beginning with fresh black berries, plum, violets, and cassis on the nose with a hint of leather, flint, and cinnamon. The palate is filled with brighter and fresher, red and black berries, crushed raspberries, figs, dates, and chocolate, lifted with a bright acidity, and lengthened with mouth-filling tannins.

plus a new Cab to be determined

Wednesday June 27 Wine Tasting – $20

June is the start to some pretty hot days, so it’s always a good idea to have some nice roses and white wines on hand.  I call them Summer Sippers.  But no tasting is complete without a nice big juicy zin or cab to pair up with what’s on the grill.  

Tasting Notes

2016 St. Supery Estate, Napa Valley Merlot, Cab, Malbec, Petite Verdot

This is a bright and crisp Rose, with aromas of raspberry, pomegranate and rose petal. Flavors of strawberry, and watermelon dominate with a touch of raspberry cordial. The vibrant finish has a good mouthfeel and is full of life.

2017 Chateau de Berne Inspiration, Provence, France, Black Granache, Cinsault

A light translucent pink with some yellow gold hues, with delicate notes of cherry, cranberry and pomegranate. This is a dry rosé that has weight and structure on the palate. It is balanced by a freshness and tart red fruit notes like fresh strawberry.

2016 Darioush Signature Viognier, Napa Valley

This is a heady, aromatic variety making rich, complex, and full-bodied white wines redolent of a floral bouquet and assorted stone fruits and tropical fruits, with a hint of spice not unlike that of Gewürztraminer. It is lower in acidity than most white wines, lending to its heavy impression on the palate. While a whiff of Viognier might suggest sweet flavors, these wines are typically quite dry.

2015 Wilson Zinfandel, Dry Creek, Sonoma County

Bright aromatics of black raspberry and blackberry fuse with spicy pepper. The smooth entry leads to the silky texture accented by black pepper and spice box. Fresh blackberry and hints of huckleberry merge with a spicy essence as the playful flavors satiate the palateand linger. This balanced Zin offers those classic Dry Creek Valley qualities that put this region on every wine lover’s map.

2014 Pedras Cabernet Sauvignon, Rutherford, Napa Valley

Our 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon is wildly aromatic with effusive aromas of ripe blackberry, sweet spice and black licorice that lift out of the glass.  The first sip seduces with juicy blackberry and ripe bing cherry wrapped in a fine layer of cassis and baking spice.  This balanced wine offers generous mouth-feel, a decadent juicy core, with creamy oak that finishes with beautifully integrated tannins.  Only 100 cases made.
