The Wine Country Tasting Set of 6 Includes one bottle each of the following wines:
Honig Sauvignon Blanc Napa Valley Bright, and fresh. The flavors and aromas are reminiscent of peaches, lemon curd, white grapefruit, and passion fruit with perfectly balanced notes of citrus, stone fruit. The fullness of the mid-palate is complemented by a crisp, lengthy finish. 96.8% Sauvignon Blanc, 2.7% Semillon 0.3% Muscat
Walter Hansel ‘The Meadows’ Chardonnay Russian River The Meadows is vivid and ample in the glass. Orange confit, crème brulee, spice, honey and tropical overtones all flesh out in this creamy wonderfully expressive Chardonnay. This is a decidedly overt style, and yet all the elements are so nicely balanced.
County Line Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast The County Line Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir embodies the vibrant freshness and approachability of ripe coastal fruit. Bright raspberry, cranberry, and fresh alpine strawberries highlight the nose and palate. Subtle notes of violet and fennel weave throughout, further enhancing the vibrant freshness. Balanced tannins add structure to this smooth, easy-drinking wine. Organically farmed.
Ottimino Zinfandel ‘Biglieri Vineyard’ Russian River Black plum and pomegranate interlace with white pepper and cedar from the French oak. The wine’s entry introduces a complex array of flavors, adding boysenberry and vanilla to the mix. An expansive mid-palate leads to a lingering finish. The balance of this quintessential Zinfandel allows great versatility with food, and its deceptive heartiness will reward experiments with exotic pairings. Ottimino has always produced Zinfandel from cooler regions, thereby allowing more time on the vine to concentrate flavors and keep alcohols at respectable levels.
Picayune Padlock Red Blend Napa Valley Dark ruby color, deep layers of black cherries, cassis, blackberries, cocoa, currants and bit of truffle on the nose, the wine is beautiful and seductive. An elegant, round, and rich mid palate with attractive texture and excellent acidity, Padlock, our Bordeaux blend, is sexy but well balanced with good depth and length. 36% Cabernet Sauvignon – 36% Cabernet Franc – 28% Merlot
Band of Vintners Cabernet Sauvignon This is a wine of great complexity and finesse. Intense cassis and blackberry aromas make for an intriguing and elegant nose. Fresh and balanced on the palate, with a very fine and spicy texture. it is layered with black pepper and blue fruit. The finish is delicate and long-lasting. Varietal Blend: 85% Cabernet, 8% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Franc
