2014 Meiomi Chardonnay

Meiomi Chardonnay comes from California, USA.  What’s most notable about this wine is that the Chardonnay grapes are sourced from three different counties. 37% comes from Monterey County, 36% from Sonoma County and 27% from Santa Barbara County. Meiomi does this to achieve “the best expression of their respective appellations…”

From the winemaker – “Smooth, opulent layers of lemon peel and stone fruit are heightened by sweet smells of crème brûlée, butterscotch, baked apple, shortbread, roasted marshmallow, and spices. The mid-palate is fleshy and rich, followed by a clean, mineral finish.”

2014 Raymond Sommelier Selection Cabernet Sauvignon

Raymond Vineyard’s Sommelier Selection Cabernet Sauvignon was crafted by a group of influential sommeliers at the finest restaurants and inspired by the rich history of our world-renowned winegrowing region. We used Cabernet grapes from three unique appellations, resulting in a fun and diverse wine made to enjoy. Napa Valley is the backbone of the blend, with its terroir providing the fullest expression of black fruits and integrated tannins; Sonoma County’s fog influence produces grapes that give the wine structure, balance and acidity; Lake County’s growing season is short, making for red, jammy wines that are easy to enjoy.

From the Wine Maker – “Our 2014 Sommelier Selection Cabernet Sauvignon opens with aromas of red fruits, fresh strawberry and plum. Robust flavors of raspberry, currant and a touch of toast burst forth from the glass. Soft and supple in the mouth, this juicy wine has a long finish and is extremely food friendly, made to pair with a myriad of dishes.”

Enjoy with cornish game hens, duck or turkey prepared in rich, hearty or heavy sauces or hard cheeses like Parmigiano or Romano and firm cheeses like Cheddar.

2015 Edna Valley Sauvignon Blanc

Edna Valley Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc is made from sauvignon blanc grapes grown in a variety of vineyard blocks in the paragon vineyard. The grapes are left on the vine as long as possible to develop citrus and tropical fruit characters. The handpicked clusters were pressed directly with minimal pressure. A small portion of the fruit was de-stemmed and allowed to sit on the skins for 4 hours before gently draining off the juice. To increase viscosity and complexity, 15% of the wine was barrel fermented in older french barrels and aged on the lees for four months before blending. A variety of specialty yeasts were used to bring grapefruit, orange, and tropical flavors to this wine’s forefront.

From the winemaker – “The fruit for our Central Coast Sauvignon Blanc wine is sourced from a combination of cooler and warmer sites for optimal complexity. This blend gives our white wine concentrated citrus notes of orange zest, grapefruit and lime, complemented by tropical fruit flavors and notes of fresh cut grass. Vibrant acidity keeps the wine crisp and adds length and minerality to the finish.”

Enjoy with a crab salad, smoked salmon,  or Oysters Au Gratin. Cheeses such as brie, swiss or gouda.

2013 Adele Chardonnay

The Adele Chardonnay comes from a 10-acre block in the well-known Vine Hill Road region of Russian River, source of some of the best Chardonnay produced in California. It is fermented two-thirds in new and used French Oak barrels, while the rest is fermented in stainless steel to maintain the bright freshness of the fruit. During its 8 month elevage, the wine sees some batonnage, adding richness and texture. The result is a full-bodied but not overblown crowd-pleaser.

Columbia Winery Red Blend

After a string of highly regarded Washington vintages, Winemaker Sean Hails created our Red Blend wine using fruit from across several recent years, selecting his favorite lots to showcase the art of blending. Our Red Blend wine is crafted with fruit sourced across the Columbia Valley, including Yakima Valley, Horse Heaven Hills, Wahluke Slope and a small portion of Red Mountain. All together, the fruit from these prized AVAs results in a red blend wine that speaks Washington.

Sourced from Washington’s finest growing regions, the supple Red Blend wine has a solid, fruit-forward foundation of fresh blackberry, cassis and blueberry flavors, with hints of ripe raspberry and red cherry. Soft, approachable tannins are enhanced on the medium-bodied palate with Syrah’s notes of pepper and clove, with a mouth-filling texture. Notes of vanilla, toasted oak and brown spice linger on the Red Blend’s long finish.”

2012 Sheriff of Buena Vista Red

The story of our founder is as long as it is colorful. One of California’s first sheriffs, Agoston Haraszthy was elected the Sheriff of San Diego County in 1850. He built the first jail and served two exciting years before moving north to pursue “purple gold” and the perfect terroir for fine wines. He found it in Sonoma County where he established Buena Vista Winery in 1857. It is his legacy that inspired this wine and the work of sheriffs everywhere that we honor with its release.

From the Wine Maker – “The Sheriff of Buena Vista is deserving of its name. This bold Sonoma County Red Wine is an authoritative blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Petite Sirah, Grenache, Petit Verdot, Syrah and Merlot. Inspiring dark red fruit aromatics arrest the senses while rich raspberry, blackberry and semi-sweet chocolate flavors are deliciously unleashed on the palate.”

This wine goes well with BBQ Pork, Grilled Portabella Mushrooms, Gourmet Cheeses, Lasagna Florentine.
