2014 R Collection Cabernet Sauvignon

raymond-r-collection-cabernet-sauvignonThe R Collection Cabernet Sauvignon is sourced from the finest vineyards throughout California, with each area adding a unique layer into the overall taste profile. Minimally intrusive winemaking techniques allow the true California terroir to shine through in every glass poured and bottle enjoyed.

From the Wine Maker – “Our 2014 R Collection Cabernet Sauvignon, deep garnet in the glass, opens with alluring aromas of dark red fruits, boysenberry pie and a touch of a lightly candied violet. Upon the palate this luscious Cabernet Sauvignon presents rich flavors of dried plums, Medjool dates, red currants and bright berries. This succulent Cabernet has a medium weight and soft, round tannins that lead to a memorable finish.”

McManis Pinot Noir

mcmanis-pinot-noirFrom the Wine Maker – “The McManis Family Vineyards Pinot Noir is light purple in color with a lustrous hue. Fresh Cherry, Strawberry and Raspberry flavors are perceptible as the round silky wine passes through the mouth. Vanilla undertones, lent to the wine from oak aging, are perceptible in the clean, but supple finish. Ripe Strawberry, Cherry and Raspberry aromas are joined by a cream and Vanilla bouquet.”

Try this great wine with Roast beef, steak, brisket, meatloaf, hamburgers, Beef Bourguignon or beef prepared with a mushroom sauce.

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.

2013 Zin 91 Old Vine Zinfandel

This great Zin is dry and spicy, with blackberry, currant, herb and coffee flavors that finish with a hint of raisins.

From the Wine Maker – “The aromas are classic of an old vine Zinfandel: spicy and jammy. Notes of black pepper, raspberry, and boysenberry lead to hints of cinnamon, sandalwood, and clove to create the bouquet. On the palate, the wine carries over the spicy notes, as well as black cherry and cassis flavors. The oak-aging gives it a supple and velvety texture. Fruit-forward with balanced acidity and alcohol.”

Pairs well with an array of dishes, from vegetable lasagna to hearty beef stews. Also excellent with roasted and grilled meats.

2011 Aquinas Cabernet Sauvignon

Aquinas-Cabernet-SauvignonDon Sebastiani, Sr. learned about St. Thomas Aquinas in his studies and travels, and was inspired by the way that he brought together two dissident ideas, using scientific method to try to prove the existence of a “higher being.” In much the same way, Don knew it was possible to bring together the idea of a classic, excellent Napa Valley wine with affordability and accessibility that most Napa wines lack. Wine should be a luxury that we can all afford, and the famed Napa Valley is no exception.

From the winemaker – “This wine opens with a fragrant, fruit forward bouquet of classic black cherry and boysenberry aromas with faint hints of dill from its time spent on American oak. This elegant wine leads with blackberry and black currant flavors complemented by notes of dark chocolate, cassis and warm baking spice. This beautifully balanced wine is medium to full body with round supple tannins. It’s a deliciously smooth Cabernet Sauvignon in the classic Napa Valley tradition.”

2011 HandCraft Petite Sirah

HandCraft Artisan Collection wines celebrate the California home and Italian heritage of third generation winery proprietor Cheryl Indelicato. She gives classic grape varieties her own personal touch by adding a playful dash of Italian and heritage varietals as a nod to the vineyard-to-barrel field selections that found their place daily at the Italian table when she was growing up. The result is distinctive, fruit forward wines that are easy to enjoy and share with others.

From the winemaker – “Jammy fruit from beginning to end—starting with aromas of blueberry pie, nutmeg and pepper. In the mouth, flavors expand to include boysenberry, plum, blueberry and spice. This full bodied wine has a bold tannin structure and balanced acidity that lead to a long finish. This big wine is anything but “petite”.

Embolden your sense of taste and pair with mixed grill and slow roasted short ribs.

2010 Four Vines Petite Sirah

Four-Vines-Petite-SirahFrom the winemaker – “Pull the cork on this bottle and pour out a dark scarlet elixir throwing off aromas of cherry pie, cedar box, cinnamon, plum and rhubarb. Trailing notes include fragrant plums, sweet cigars and vanilla wafers to pull you into this seductive wine. Lodi vineyards pick out with grapes of sublime depth…glory to those older vines and warm summer days.

Flavors here capture and intrigue the senses with their explosive outbursts. Fresh blackberry and boysenberry flavors ride with pepper spice, briar perfume and cloves on a structure that starts right from the very first sip. A healthy dollop of Zinfandel keeps the party going with a youthful rebel fruit addition to lighten things up and to rock its easy-drinking style.”

Big, bodacious blue fruit with fine tannins, minerality and good acidity make this wine the perfect partner to blue cheese, tri tip, grilled burgers, sausage pizza or perhaps a portabella mushroom risotto.
