ONLY SIX SEATS LEFT!
Brandlin “Mount Veeder” Cabernet Sauvignon: Brandlin Vineyard is located on a Mount Veeder ridgeline, in the southern Mayacamas Range on Napa Valley’s west side. Perched at 900 to 1,150 feet in elevation, the vineyard is divided into 15 discrete blocks facing every point on the compass. This block differentiation leverages the site’s varied aspects in sun exposure, slope and soil composition, each providing distinct fruit characteristics. The 2014 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon is a gorgeous bouquet of violets, rose petals and fresh currant on the nose. The wine is quite lush and round on the attack, featuring lovely blackberry and boysenberry jam, with hints of mocha, toffee and Saigon cinnamon. The 2014 vintage is 77% Cabernet Sauvignon and rounded out with 10% Cabernet Franc, 7 % Malbec and 6% Petit Verdot all from the rugged, picturesque Brandlin Estate Vineyard on Mount Veeder.
Kenwood Vineyards “Six Ridges” Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon: “Six Ridges” is named in honor of the mountains and ridges that border the vineyards and influence the terroir. Alexander Valley lies in the northeast of Sonoma County where mountains shelter the vines from the Pacific Ocean’s cooling influence. This warm climate is ideal for growing Cabernet Sauvignon wines of intense flavor and silky tannins, and the excellent drainage of the rich, gravelly soils provides unique depth and character to the wines. The 2014 vintage had a long and dry growing season with mild temperatures making for nearly perfect conditions. The 2014 Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon has distinct aromas of fig, raspberry and coco nibs accompanied by subtle notes of roasted coffee and clove. The palate is full-bodied with a rich texture, lively acidity and a long, pleasant finish.
Mark Herold Wines “Uproar” Cabernet Sauvignon: Mark Herold found his curiosity for wine through his love for food and cooking during his teenage years. Initially planning to study culinary arts in Paris, Mark eventually decided on a domestic education. While at UC Davis, his curiosity for wine was nurtured by a fellow wine enthusiast, who happened to be his bio-chemistry professor and owned his own winery in the Sierra Foothills. It took one volunteer harvest for Mark to become completely enthralled with the process. Mark’s ever-present thirst for knowledge led him down a career path as a winemaker; combining both his love of science and art. “Uproar” Napa Valley Cabernet erupts from the glass with big aromas of ripe blackberry, raspberry, boysenberry, strawberry and mocha. The subtle notes violets, sun-baked quartz and cured black olives add incredible dimension to this wine. Mouth-filling, hedonistic and head turning flavors of black and purple fruits are framed by sweet, velvety tannins. This approachable Cabernet was built to be your go to bottle any day of the week.
