NV Chandon Limited Edition Blanc de Noirs, California

Made from Pinot Noir, although the color is golden straw, and the wine is light and airy in the mouth.  Blanc de Noirs is characteristically marked by cherry, currant and strawberry aromas and flavors. These red fruit flavors build in the mid-palate and finish with a soft, lingering creamy texture.

2011 Sterling Vintners Collection Meritage, Central Coast, California

A blend of five varietals, layered together in a wine that is engaging, fruit forward and complex. Aromas of bright red cherries, plums and berry pie leap from the glass, gently rounded by a kiss of sweet caramel and vanilla. The juicy fruit continues through the palate with full-bodied flavors and ripe, round tannins. Mocha and chocolate notes lend subtle nuances to the lively cherry-berry flavors that span the length of the palate and into the long finish.

2011 Joseph Carr Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa County, California

Black currant, tobacco, cedar, plum, pepper, fig, clove, blackberry bramble, anise on the nose, followed by an attack of cherry, spice, tobacco on the palate. The wine shows great balance and density, silky fine grain tannins with anise, clove, cherry and black currant in a long finish.

2011 Beaulieu Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley, California

The fruit-focused aromas and flavors take center stage, while subtle vanilla-oak and mocha nuances from barrel aging linger in the background. The cool growing season enhanced this wine’s supple structure of bright acidity and fine-grained tannins

2010 Newton Claret, Napa County, California

Mocha, espresso, hints of oak and predominant dark red cherry aromas are the signature of the 2010 Claret. Its expressive red fruit flavors on the palate are balanced with its impressive tannin structure that is bold but not aggressive.
