2010 Sassoregale Sangiovese Maremma Toscana DOC

Following traditional red wine vinification (with meticulous maceration on the skins) and the malolactic fermentation, the wine is aged for a brief but important period in small oak barrels.

From the Wine Maker – “Its color is a bright ruby-red. On the nose, it is clean and precise, with hints of morello cherries, wild berries and a moderate spiciness. On the palate it reveals a full and firm flavor, expressing all its intensity and elegance.”

Ideal with grilled red meats, but also with cured meats or the traditional sheep’s milk cheeses of Tuscany.

2010 Cannonball Sonoma County Chardonnay

Cannonball-Sonoma-County-ChardonnayOur goal is to deliver balance in our Chardonnay. Cannonball 2010 Chardonnay is a superlative blend of 50% French Oak and 50% stainless steel fermentation with 85% malolactic fermentation. The wine offers a sophisticated nose of lemon custard, peaches, and a hint of pie crust. On the palate, stone fruit and tropical notes like pineapple come into the mix — even a hint of Granny Smith apple and vanilla bean on the finish. We hope when you taste the 2010 Cannonball Chardonnay it brings a smile to your face!

From the Wine Maker – “We’ve crafted a Chardonnay that we believe offers something a little different — balance. A wine with oak and creaminess, but isn’t a wood/butter bomb. We want bold fruit, not fruit candy. We found the perfect blend that made everyone smile. We hope you enjoy our 2010 Chardonnay — we think it’s Chardonnay You Can Believe In.”

This Chardonnay is an excellent accompaniment for fish, poultry and lightly sauced entrees. Semi-hard cheeses like Fontina, Jarlsberg, Swiss or Gouda.

2010 Villa Maria Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc

Fruit for this wine was sourced from vineyards across the Marlborough region. A blend of fruit grown in the Wairau and Awatere Valleys spanning a range of different meso-climates were incorporated. Careful attention was paid to vine health to give the vine the best chance to optimise the season and develop strong, clean flavours.

From the Wine Maker – “This vibrant Sauvignon Blanc is bursting with a fruit-salad-bowl of flavours including ripe gooseberry, passionfruit, fresh citrus lime and exotic herbaceous aromas. The wine has an exciting palate with layers of juicy flavours, intensity and fullness, finishing with a refreshing crisp, clean and racy acidity. Enjoy this exuberant and delightful wine.”

This vintage is best served with salmon, tomato, green bean and potato salad.

2010 Gallo Signature Series Pinot Noir

Gallo-Signature-Series-Pinot-NoirThe Gallo Signature Series honors the journey the Gallo family started in 1933, and it celebrates how far the family has come. With some of California’s best grapes at her fingertips, third-generation winemaker Gina Gallo, has created three distinct wines that could only be crafted from the Gallo family’s unique combination of vineyards. For Gina, the Gallo Signature Series expresses her family’s passion for great vineyards and great wine, and it reflects the best the Gallo Winery has to offer. The Gallo Signature Series marks a return to hands-on, artisanal winemaking for Gina, and it brings to life the enduring legacy of Ernest and Julio Gallo.

From the Wine Maker – “Offers a luxurious experience of the senses with aromas of lavender and dark cherries, supported by spicy notes of toasted oak. Rich flavors of boysenberry, blackberry, cassis and vanilla meld into a soft, silky mouthfeel.”

A wonderful match for simply prepared ultra-fresh Pacific salmon, Portugese-style goat cheeses, raw-milk blue cheeses, or any number of cheeses from Sonoma dairies.

2010 St. Francis Cabernet Sauvignon

St.-Francis-Cabernet-SauvignonFrom the winemaker – This Cabernet Sauvignon has rich varietal character and body. The wine’s firm structure, generous tannins, and depth of color complement classic aromas and flavors of ripe black currant, cassis, dusty cocoa and saddle leather. Fruit for our Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon comes from our estate vineyards in Sonoma and Russian River valleys, as well as from growers in Sonoma County’s other top appellations, including Dry Creek Valley, Alexander Valley and Rockpile. Each carefully selected vineyard contributes distinctive and individual qualities to the finished wine.”

This wine goes well with dishes like Point Reyes Blue Cheese Crostini or cheeses like Gruyere or Goat.

From the Wine Maker – “This wine has a bouquet showing cherry, plum and berry aromas mingle with notes of spice and tobacco. Soft, supple tannins and refreshing acidity are beautifully balanced by ripe cherry fruit flavors on the palate. Dry, harmonious and elegant.”

2010 Liberty School Chardonnay

The majority of Liberty School Chardonnay comes from one of the best stretches of Chardonnay country on the Central Coast—two growers in the cool-climate Santa Lucia Highlands, located on the west side of the Salinas Valley in Monterey County. Some of the most acclaimed Chardonnays in California come from that area, and Liberty School’s grapes get, as they should, first-class treatment all the way. The Chardonnay matures in a 50/50 mix of French and American oak, 10% of it new, for seven to nine months. The final blend is put together and bottled in August, just before the next harvest. The result is a wine full of fruit, full of youth, and unmistakably Chardonnay.

From the winemaker – “2010 Liberty School Chardonnay has a brilliant pale-lemon color and delicate scents of assorted citrus fruit and freshly sliced Granny Smith apples. A zesty acidity seamlessly coalesces with the wine’s refreshingly sumptuous flavors of lime, apples, butterscotch and pie crust. Excellent structure and balance lead to a long and clean finish.”

Liberty School Chardonnay is an excellent companion to a wide variety of food and preparation techniques including grilled poultry, roasted pork, sweet or spicy fruit chutney, and soft-ripening cheeses.
