Terra Valentine 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Spring Mountain District

WINEMAKER NOTES: In the mountains above St. Helena, in the rugged Spring Mountain AVA, Terra Valentine was born from its owners’ determination to capture the subtleties of its terroir in an exceptional portfolio of wines. The nuances of Spring Mountain district terroir rely on its uniquely diverse topography, climate, and collection of soils. Terra Valentine draws its grapes from the terrain of its two estate vineyards that capture the best of Spring Mountain District winegrowing: Wurtele Vineyard and Yverdon Vineyard. Each vineyard possesses a unique set of soils, exposures, and microclimates, producing wines of distinction and personality. Tending to mountain grapes is not an easy task, but it is definitely worth it. The resulting wines are intense in color, aroma, and flavor. They’re balanced, yet elegant. TASTING NOTES: Black currant, crème de cassis, black licorice and purple plum aromas with a touch of tar, pepperwood, and leatherlayered with caramel, baking spices, and cocoa. The brambly wild berry fruit on the palate is structured and compact on the forward palate and leads into layers of complex spices and dried sage. The earthly black fruit is mingled with cocoa powder on the finish. Drink now with decanting. Will benefit from 5-10 years in the cellar. VARIETALS: 95% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Cabernet Franc, 2% Petite Sirah APPELLATION: Spring Mountain District, Napa Valley, California, USA PRODUCTION: 800 cases

Buoncristiani 2018 O.P.C. Ol' Pa's Cuvee Proprietary Red - 20th Anniversary Blend

WINEMAKER NOTES: The Buoncristiani O.P.C. is our Napa Valley proprietary red blend. In the quest to create a wine uniquely ours, we discovered the synergy of marrying Napa Cabernet Sauvignon with Syrah, while also folding in further complexity of texture and flavor with Napa Malbec and Merlot blenders. Grapes are sourced from some of Napa’s most prestigious vineyards including Hyde, Stagecoach, Hossfeld and Bennett. Just like our winemaking fathers before us, with “Ol’ Pa’s Cuvée” we brothers continue the family tradition of handcrafting blends that help accentuate the enjoyment of life. TASTING NOTES: “The 2018 O.P.C. Red Blend is composed of 42% Cabernet Sauvignon, 24% Syrah, 18% Malbec and 16% Merlot. Deep garnet-purple colored, it offers up alluring notes of stewed plums, Black Forest cake and blackberry pie with suggestions of violets, star anise and tilled soil. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is packed with spicy black fruit flavors, supported by finely grained tannins and oodles of freshness, finishing on a lingering peppery note.” - 92 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate VARIETALS: 42% Cabernet Sauvignon, 24% Syrah, 18% Malbec and 16% Merlot APPELLATION: Napa Valley, California, USA

Sciandri Family Vineyards 2018 Coombsville Cuvee

WINEMAKER NOTES: The Sciandri Family arrived in Napa in 1992, purchasing 20 acres of untouched pasture, begging to be planted.  So, it was not long before we planted our first Cabernet Sauvignon field and started our adventure in wine. Starting out as growers, we were honored to provide fruit to some of the most prestigious wine makers in the valley. It was after many years of enjoying the fruits of our labor in others’ wines that we made the family decision to start our own production. In 2006 we launched Sciandri Family Vineyards. Our first wine was an Estate Grown Cabernet Sauvignon. We have since grown our portfolio to offer our Coombsville Cuvee, a Rose, a Sauvignon Blanc, and a special 4 barrel production of a wine called “Nello“. Named in honor of Ron Sr’s father, who taught us about gardening, farming, and all the importance of being good stewards of the land. TASTING NOTES: Layers and layers of blackberry, cherry, mocha, and white pepper dance around your pallet. Offering mouthwatering richness and full body flavors. Soft subtle tannin and sweet acidity make this an amazing food friendly wine.

Ziata 2017 Mia Madre Red Blend

Karen started ZIATA with two varietals, Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir, which she chose for their food-friendly qualities. In 2009, she added a Cabernet Franc to the portfolio. She remains involved in every aspect of her wine, from vineyard sourcing to harvesting, blending, bottling and selling.

Bent Press 2020 Malbec

WINEMAKER NOTES: Our Story began with three Sonoma families coming together with sleeves rolled up and babies in carriers while harvesting to create our first wine at home. Three men were sent to complete one simple task. The task of picking up the wine press. Turning the corner on our way home, we watched wide-eyed as the press hurdled out of the truck and into the intersection of hwy 29 and 121. In our excitement, no one remembered to strap the press down. This memory, along with our wounded pride and bent press never fails to bring us laughter. It also reminds us of the lengths we will go to bring the finest wines to our extended family and friends. TASTING NOTES: Supple and smooth on the palate, this exceptional wine features vibrant blueberry and raspberry fruit aromas framed by herbaceous secondary notes. Balanced and complex, the finish has a bright acidity, making this a wonderful wine to pair with food.
