Celestin Bondeau, “Sancerre” Sauvignon Blanc, 2018, France


This full, ripe wine offers rich apple and pear flavors as well as considerable acidity. The wine is concentrated in citrus and green fruits which complement each other and add to the rich character.

Hess, “Collection” Estate Grown, Napa Chardonnay, 2016, California


Subtle notes of vanilla and brioche compliment distinctive citrus aromas of tangerine and lemon zest. Fermented in stainless, as well as barrels, brings focus to the bright fruit character of nectarine, pear and green apple.

Miraval, “Provence” Rose’, 2018, France


Airy and balanced, this rose’ delicately combines great freshness and complexity, and develops saline and mineral notes. Its long and intense finish is the signature of a rosé wine from Provence, France.

Rusack Vineyards, “Santa Rita Hills” Reserve Pinot Noir, 2015, California


This wine has seductive aroma qualities of bright red cherries, red raspberries and cola. The flavors of black cherry, cinnamon, combined with velvety tannins complete this elegant offering.

Castello Di Radda, “Riserva” Chianti Classico, 2013, Italy


Ruby red appearance with rich, intense tones. Spicy nose with floral notes and hints of wild berry (red and black), accompanied by mineral impressions and light toasted notes. Spice re-appears on the palate, which displays firm but supple tannins, and the finale is vigorous and taut.

Domaine Notre Dame des Pallieres, “Gigondas” Red Blend, 2015, France


Purple color. Intense nose dominated by licorice and Oak notes. The palate is generous, powerful and full-bodied with a long elegant finish. Overall a frank attack, racy with soft tannic structure.

Hess "Collection" Estate Grown, Mount Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon, 2014


Hess's signature Mount Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon comes from the Veeder Hills Vineyard estate. Its steep slopes and sedimentary clay and shale soils restrict root growth, resulting in Mount Veeder's hallmark small berries with intense fruit flavors. True to its appellation, this wine possesses dark concentrated fruit flavors and robust tannins.
