Wine List for Tasting
1. Canard Zinfandel $35.99
Winemaker Notes. From one of the oldest Zinfandel vineyards in Napa Valley. This is not your typical Zin. This wine is structured, balanced and incredibly elegant. On the nose and upon entry, the wine is a seamless transition of rich, ripe raspberry, cedar, allspice and clove. The mid-palate is full bodied with a luscious mouth feel of ripe red cherries, cranberries and figs. The finish is long and soft with hints of vanilla bean, coriander and baking spice.
2. Darioush Cabernet $99.99 Special, $119.99 Regular Price
Winemaker Notes. The hallmark of Darioush Signature Cabernet Sauvignon is its graceful complexity, compelling freshness and concentration, the result of decades of meticulous vineyard management of our cooler climate, Southern Napa Valley sites. Our estate vineyards in the Mount Veeder and Napa Valley AVA’s have hit their stride, producing a seamless composition which strikes a balance of youthful energy, structure, and restraint; our flagship wine rewards collectors and enthusiasts alike with extraordinary depth and poise.
3. Gemstone Red $79.99
Winemaker Notes. The Gemstone Vineyard 2013 Estate Red Wine is a blend of estate-grown Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot from several micro-blocks and distinctive clones from our 16-acre vineyard. This rich and complex wine is luscious and seductive with hints of blueberries, mocha, cherry cola, and creamy vanilla. The opulent, sweet and silky tannins lead to a long finish and a wine that will age for 15+ years.
