Ruvei Barbera D'Alba
Production Zone: The Barbera d'Alba is the most traditional wine among Piedmont wines. The grapes come from vineyards of mainly calcareous clay soils, alternating with layers of whitish marl, able to ensure the wine an excellent structure and to equip it with a vigorous but balanced character. The product specification allows for the vinification of Barbera d'Alba also with a small percentage (up to 15%) of Nebbiolo d'Alba, in order to increase finesse and elegance. The Cantine dei Marchesi di Barolo uses this opportunity, together with the selection of the locations of the vineyards and the attention to the perfect maturation of the grapes, the wine achieves more softness and structure, but with low acidity. Cultivation of the Vineyard: The vines are grown with Guyot (VSP trellised) system with good slope. Vinification: Grapes are collected exclusively by hand, quickly brought to the cellar for destalking and soft pressing to extract from the peel and the outer area of the grape only the most noble and aromatic fractions. Fermentation, at a controlled temperature, takes place in thermo-conditioned tanks. Maceration of the skins lasts 8 days, during which the fermenting juice is regularly recycled from the bottom to the top of the tank in order to integrate the tannins softly and extract the color slowly. This procedure is finished throughout when the wine is almost completely dry.
Querceto Chianti Classico
Chianti is the most famous wine name in Italy is not the name of a grape but actually a region. Chianti lies in the 35 miles of hills between Florence and Siena, a complex geological region as well as geographically. The extraordinary geography makes grape growing a very challenging feat with multiple exposures and soil types on the same estate. The region comprises 9 different communes not dissimilar to Bordeaux wherein each commune has a particular characteristic that shows in the wine. The wine is made predominantly Sangiovese, the grape must comprise at least 80% of the blend. Chianti Classico is the "classic" region, though many other nearby regions now use the name "Chianti" to make similar wines. The "Gallo Nero" or Black Rooster on many of the Chianti Classico bottles is a private consortium of producers who try and control the direction of production and quality amongst their members.
Col D'Orcia, Rosso Di Montaicino
Col d'Orcia is the feted producer of one of Italy's most revered red wines: Brunello di Montalcino. Situated near the medieval hilltop village of Montalcino in Tuscany's Siena province, the estate has a rich winemaking history that dates back to the 1700s. In the hands of the Cinzano family since 1973, Col d'Orcia is owned by Count Francesco Marone Cinzano, who oversees day-to-day operations with estate manager, Edoardo Virano. Winemaking at Col d'Orcia is entrusted to chief enologist Antonino Tranchida with Maurizio Castelli as consulting enologist. Production Area: Located in southern Montalcino in the area of Sant Angelo in Colle. The vines enjoy a favorable southern exposure granting the vineyards with the blessing of the sun rays the whole day long. Average height is about 1000 ft above sea level. Grape Varieties: 100% Sangiovese.
Ruffino Riserva "Ducale Gold"
The Story: This fabled Ruffino wine has been one of our most prized since it was first released in 1927. Riserva Ducale is crafted using modern winemaking techniques to enhance traditional Italian methods, and is widely acknowledged as a benchmark for Chianti Classico Riserva. Why this name? Ducale means 'duke' in Italian. Riserva Ducale honors the Duke of Aosta who braved a journey over the Alps to taste the Ruffino wines that he had heard so much about. He was so impressed by the wine that in 1890 he appointed Ruffino as the official supplier to the Italian royal family. This honor is not only reflected in the wine's name, but is depicted on its iconic label, one of the most recognized in the world of Italian wine. Tasting Notes: This complex and deep red wine is characterized by sweet cherry and red berry fruit notes with delicately spiced hints of tobacco, leather, cedar, white pepper and a touch of flint. It's well balanced on the palate, with velvety tannins, firm acidity and a lingering finish of rosemary and figs. Its structure will allow it to age for many years.
The nose has black fruit characters full of blackberry and plum with hints of oak, spices and vanilla.
"Pleasant cherry & berry flavors with oaky vanilla on the finish." Winery Notes.
Grapes from Lodi, Paso Robles, Santa Barbara and Monterey. Blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Aged in French oak for approximately 9 months. Drinks of cherries, black currants and boysenberry jam with herbal spice. A splash of Merlot and Zinfandel bumps up the fruit flavors and keeps it easy drinking. Medium bodied with surprising richness. Previous reviews: 2009 vintage - Robert Parker, 87 pts., "Top Value".
Complex and vibrant aromas of red plum, cherry, and forest berries mingle with deeper notes of violet, earthy tobacco, and leather, accented by hints of vanilla. Dried herbs like marjoram and oregano add complexity.
Our Cabernet Sauvignon comes from mountain-grown fruit in Alexander Valley. Cedar, graphite, fresh blackberry and spice aromas delight with a soft mouth feel that boasts flavors of mocha, black tea, wild berry and clove. Velvety tannins and sweet notes of caramel and chocolate abound in the finish.
With its versatility and depth of fantastic fruity flavor, Merlot is one of the key grape varietals which has truly conquered the world of wines. Grown all over Europe, the Americas and elsewhere, Merlot grapes are distinguishable by their beautiful blue color and loose hanging bunches. They are a favorite with wineries due to their light tannin content and low levels of malic acid, meaning that Merlot wines are extremely drinkable and carry a depth of flavors which is at once fleshy and full, without being overpowering or challenging for the drinker. Merlots are often used for blending, as their roundedness and mellow nature is a perfect way to balance out more astringent varietals, leading to fuller, more complex and silky quality wines. Indeed, many of the finest wineries in the world in esteemed locations across countries such as France and Italy are famed for their habit of using ripened Merlot grapes to their full potential.
Mouth-filling overripe raspberry and cherry flavors. Soft and supple. The wine exhibits a velvet finish due to the soft tannins and understated acidity.
This is complex, displaying a mix of ripe cherry and raspberry flavors, with mineral and loamy earth notes that have a savory herb edge. Full-bodied, focused and long on the finish, with the right mix of acidity and tannins.
SeaGlassThis Pinot Noir captures the best of Santa Barbara's unique terroir with a fresh, light-bodied profile that allows the grape's varietal character to shine through.
A challenge from vine to glass, Pinot Noir can be a notorious failure - except in tiny, cool-climate pockets of the world where its subtle brilliance is revealed. The coolest and most northern source of our appellation releases, Anderson Valley has proven to be a remarkable region for Pinot. Vineyards are just 10-15 miles from the rugged Mendocino Coast and vines struggle on steep slopes, developing complex, small berries. This fruit is unusually graceful, developing elegant blueberry and bright red cherry flavors, overlaid with delicate tea and layered floral notes.
Excellent Aussie Stunner with notes of black pepper and berries.
Ripe boysenberry, black cherry and dark chocolate.
Thorney Rose - Meritage
Merlot, Cab, Malbec and Syrah. Full body with juicy black cherry, dark plum, chocolate and spicy mocha from oak aging.
Dark red garnet. Aromas of rich dried plums, with hints of vanilla and dark chocolate. Flavors of raspberries and cherries, with spicy notes of cinnamon followed by a long, rich finish. In 2009 the windy, cool weather during flowering resulted in smaller and more concentrated fruit. The result is a rich, fruity wine, complemented by spice and vanilla from the oak aging.
White Wine List
Mezzacorona, Pinot Grigio
Good peach and apple character with a hint of almonds follow through to a medium-bodied palate, with good acidity and a fruity finish.
Varietal: Chardonnay For most people, the Chardonnay grape varietal is one of the quintessential white wine grapes. It isn't difficult to understand why; Chardonnay may well have started off in regions of France (where it is still used widely today in both single variety white wines as well as sparkling Champagne wines) but it is now grown in every wine producing country in the world. Indeed, it was the New World that took Chardonnay to some exciting new extremes this relatively neutral grape has the fantastic ability to carry much of its terroir in the bottle, resulting in a fascinating range of flavors and styles. Furthermore, Chardonnay is one of the few white wine grapes which is well suited to aging, as can be seen in some of the excellent produce consistently coming out of Burgundy, and elsewhere in the world. With everything from buttery, creamy characteristics to vibrant tropical fruit notes, Chardonnay will never cease to surprise and impress.
Our Chardonnay displays bright apple and tropical fruit aromas with creamy, toasty oak tones adding complexity. Fruit-forward apple, pear and citrus flavors coat the palate while oak nuances add interest and sur lie character enriches the finish. Pair it with seafood and chicken dishes, game hens, pork roast and cream sauce pastas.
Aromas of pear and citrus, highlighting lemon and lime, are followed on the palate with pineapple and tropical fruit flavors. Medium bodied and refreshing, a subtle oak toast balances acidity, resulting in a wine crafted in a modern, fruit-forward style, wonderful to enjoy on its own as an apéritif, or with a wide array of dishes across many cuisines.
Wine Advocate - Sonoma Coast, Sonoma, CA- "The 2012 Chardonnay Russian River spends time in 29% new oak. It exhibits notes of orange marmalade, white peaches and pineapple, medium to full body, heady glycerin and a long, pure, well-balanced finish."
This wine is long and flavorful with creamy richness that leads to a nice, crisp finish. Aromas of pear, baked apple and lemon blossom are accented with honey, brown sugar and lavender. Flavors of green apple, pear and buttered toast are layered with caramel and oak spice.
The wine has a spicy nose which highlights apple, pineapple, lemon cream and floral aromas. A rich body lingers with flavors of vanilla, apple pastry and lemon zest. The mild summer gave us ideal hang-times for very even ripening on the vine and thus produced a rich, well-balanced wine with bright acidity and a slight stony mineral finish.
Geyser Peak, Sauvignon Blanc
Pungent grass, gooseberry, lime and guava notes are intense and bright with a mouthwatering acidity and a long lingering finish.
Beringer, White Zinfandel
Fresh fruit, ripe berry and watermelon, crisp, refreshing, aromas of strawberries, citrus and spice come to the forefront.
Sparkling & Dessert
Luscious, aromatic and balanced, Pasorina is a fresh and lovely Moscato with a refreshing touch of sparkle.
