Taz Fiddlestix Pinot Noir
Fiddlestix Pinot Noir is powerful and lush with notable complexity and structure...this wine has layered aromatics that reveal themselves slowly in the glass, opening to aromas of dark plum and black cherry with a hint of earthiness and cedar.
The 2007 Fiddlestix Pinot Noir shines with its characteristic depth and complexity. The nose opens with layered aromas of brambles, blueberry, black plum, vanilla and baking spices. The palate is well-structured with notes of cherry compote, anise, cardamom and a hint of earthiness. The grapes for this wine were handpicked and sorted in the field, then gently de-stemmed and fermented separately in small, open top fermenters. The majority of the lots underwent natural fermentation with native yeasts. Each lot was aged separately for 13 months in French oak barrels.
MAN Free-Run Steen Chenin Blanc
A crisp, clean, expressive wine with pure fruit flavors for everyday drinking - also pairs well with food. Light yellow/straw in appearance. Vibrant aromas of baked apples and quinces. On the palate, grapefruit and bold citrus flavors are backed by refreshing acidity and minerality. Chenin Blanc thrives in the Mediterranean climate, deep soils and bush-vine vineyards of South Africa's Agter-Paarl region. MAN uses only the free-run juice (no pressing of the grapes) to preserve its clean and natural character, refreshing acidity and delicious ripe fruit flavors
This versatile wine pairs well with poultry, shellfish and vegetable dishes. Also fabulous as an aperitif for a hot summer afternoon. Serve chilled.
Bogle Essential Red
A compelling blend of California's finest plantings of Old Vine Zinfandel, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Petite Sirah, this wine surpasses all expectations for pure enjoyment and approachability.
Calling on their years of experience and tradition, Bogle winemakers have delivered a wine with wonderful characteristics. Rich, enticing layers of complexity, starting with that first irresistible sip. Ripe fruit, intense with flavors of boysenberries and sweet cherries. Luscious vanilla, caressing the palate from barrel aging in American and French oak. Juicy and silky throughout, with a finish that lingers of black licorice and spicy pipe tobacco.
