2007 Giovanni Rocca Barolo

giovanni-rocca-baroloAzienda Agricola Rocca Giovanni consists of 22 hectares of vineyards in Monforte d’Alba, stationed in several parts of the village. All the most prestigious and earthly areas and zones of the Langhe belong to the family for three generations, and they have kept their form and position throughout the years.

From the winemaker – “The pure cherry flavor is framed by mineral and tobacco accents and stern tannins in this linear red. Shows fine balance and builds to a long finish.“

This wine was given a 92 point rating by Wine Spectator.

2011 Stonestreet Cabernet Sauvignon

Stonestreet-Cabernet-SauvignonFrom the winemaker – “The 2011 Stonestreet Estate Cabernet Sauvignon conveys vivid aromas and flavors of black cherry, satsuma plum and blood orange with bay leaf, fresh tobacco and cocoa nib adding further dimension. The palate offers a generous, beautifully extracted texture, all of which is kept in balance by the freshness of the fruit that one finds on the mountain, and an indelible stony signature — wrapped in ripe, chalky tannins that satisfy immediately and yet will easily reward a decade of cellar time.”

This wine pairs nicely with Roast Beef, steak, steak prepared with dark and hearty sauces or red wine sauces, beef stew, short ribs, Beef Stroganoff and Beef Wellington.

2012 Freemark Abbey Cabernet Sauvignon

From the Wine Maker – “Opaque, dark ruby color introduces this wine that expresses dark fruit aroma and flavors. With spicy sweet oak complexity, the wine exudes dark fruit such as blackberry, black currant, blueberry and dark cherry. There are nuances of dark chocolate, chocolate berry truffle dusted with cocoa powder, cola, aromatic cedar, cinnamon, clove, graham crackers and a hint of tobacco. The body is very full with a soft entry, coupled with dark cherry/berry flavors that develop from start to finish. With great texture and mouth feel, this cabernet is full bodied, rich and opulent. In one word…. delicious.”

Rich and robust, this wine can be enjoyed with a variety of foods such as hearty pasta dishes and roast meats.

2011 Martin Ray Cabernet Sauvignon

Martin-Ray-Cabernet-SauvignonAll of our Sonoma County Cabernet was harvested early in the cold mornings, then destemmed and moved to small, open top stainless steel tanks. There it fermented at moderate temperatures and macerated on the skins for an extended period of time. The wine was pressed off, settled 2 days and then racked to barrels for malolactic fermentation. This Cabernet spent 14 months aging in oak barrels and in tank; 45% new oak was used, half of that being American and half French oak.

From the Wine Maker – Classic aromas of ripe cherry, pipe tobacco, cedar, spice and cola lure the taster to candied cherry flavors, finishing with soft leather and rich blackberry and plum.”

Pair our elegant, yet approachable Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon with a gourmet hamburger or rack of lamb.

2010 Black Stallion Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

Black-Stallion-Napa-Valley-Cabernet-SauvignonLocated on the grounds of a historic equestrian center, Black Stallion Winery is the latest addition to the distinguished collection of wineries in the Oak Knoll District of Napa Valley. Each of the varietals we produce is handcrafted and carefully blended from small vineyard lots. Each lot is fermented and aged separately in our cellar until just prior to bottling when we carefully blend these lots together to achieve wines of balance with layers of complex flavors.

From the Wine Maker – “This Cabernet Sauvignon has aromas of blackberry, brown sugar, tobacco, cedar and violet. Flavors on the palate show black cherry, baking spice and cocoa with finely structured tannins and a long, lingering finish.”

Great with beef, duck or veal dishes or a bleu cheese. Other flavors that go well with this bottle are dark chocolate, mustard, paprika, rosemary, thyme, cloves, ginger and nutmeg.

2011 Edge Cabernet Sauvignon

EDGE is a lush, complex Cabernet Sauvignon produced from grapes which were carefully selected from the great old vineyards in the Silverado Trail area of Napa Valley. The winemaking process follows traditional French winemaking practices with techniques including the use of cold soaking and extended maceration (averaging 23 – 32 day), and frequent pumping over. The 2011 vintage was aged in both French and American Oak for fifteen months, and barrels were racked once every six months.

From the winemaker – “This supple and lush wine immediately opens to flavors of blackberry, clove and hints of vanilla. The medium bodied palate is balanced with flavors of eucalyptus, sweet plums, ripe cherry and hints of tobacco, while the finish is accentuated by nice acidity and subtle oak flavors.”
