Winemaker Notes: Enticing aromas of black cherry, bakers chocolate, and sagebrush followed by a palate of bright and mouthwatering blackberries, cherries, and Damson plums. It's a cornucopia of mixed dark fruits with the tannins you would expect from a big Cab. An age worthy wine that will pair well with any cut of red meat!
Winemaker Notes: The 2018 CRU Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon holds nothing back upon opening. Grilled meat, cocoa and Bing cherry perfume a beautifully expressive nose. Pulling from multiple vineyards throughout Napa Valley, this wine truly encompasses the incredible diversity that our valley has to offer. Firm tannins and structure house notes of cassis, plums, black peppercorns and fresh tobacco leaf. This wine finishes with a long, weighty finish that never loses its focus and remains pure throughout.
Winemaker Notes The 2018 El Coco pours vivid violet and sits with a dark crimson core and a Black Baccara Rose rim. Awash with complex and changing aromas, the nose starts with ripe blue fruits and brambly framboise, then opens up to some crème de menthe and cigar box. Seamless yet broad on entry, the palate is rife with blueberry, black cherry and a hint of white pepper. Plush, effortlessly balanced and with round, soft tannins, the finish is the epitome of length; it builds and eventually blooms to a satiating note of dark pluot.
Winemaker Notes: Meaning ‘legacy’ in Italian, our Retaggio red blend pays homage to the Salvestrins’ Italian heritage. Our inaugural vintage of Retaggio was 2002, and this wine has evolved into a wine club favorite for its authenticity and unique profile. Our 2019 features flavors of fruit and spice including black cherry, blueberry, violets and a hint of black pepper. Velvety in texture, this wine is concentrated and focused, featuring a follow through finish that highlights a light dusting of cocoa powder. 48% Sangiovese, 28% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Cabernet Franc
Winemaker Notes: An early drinker and crowd pleaser, this blue and red fruit extravaganza is ready out the gate. Lush and bold on the mid palate with notes of clove spice and toasted almond and coconut. A slight ‘baby fat’ fruit sweetness will keep everyone coming back for more…and more. Drink while waiting for your single vineyard Cabernets to integrate. An exceptional quality for the price and competes with wines twice its price. 94 POINTS/ Jeb Dunnuck

Sourced from the southeast corner of Washington State, our Walla Walla Red Blend is full-bodied with an opulent color combination of dark purple and indigo blue. The nose swirls with scents of crushed violets, wild berries, allspice and hazelnuts. A rich palate boasts flavors of briary blackberry, dark cherry and boysenberry with layered hints of clove and spiced nuts on a smooth finish. 45% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Petit Verdot, 5% Grenache, 5% Cabernet Franc
Winemaker Notes: Coming from Finca La Matilde, their grapes ferment for 23 days in concrete eggs with the vineyard’s own yeasts, finishing their aging process in first and second use barrels for 18 months. It has an attractive style, with an earthy and spicy sheen, through ripe blackberries and plums. In the mouth, it has a very soft, polished, and fresh touch with an impressive balance and freshness. Wine Spectator rated this vintage a Top Value and rated 91 points by James Suckling!
