Sterling Cabernet Reserve
Ripe, smooth and harmonious, showing layers of currant, cedar, coffee, anise and blackberry, this outstanding California red unfolds to reveal a supple texture, then firms up nicely.
Firm and structured, with spicy currant, herb, dill and berry, picking up a cedary lead pencil edge. Finishes with a firm, rich core of flavors and tight tannins
Scents of red currant, red licorice, wild berry, sage and fresh earth fold together nicely in this ripe, intense, tightly wound young Cabernet. Well-focused, deep and complex, with dry, earthy tannins on the finish.
About as close to Bordeaux in California as you get, from the classic cigar box, cedar, tobacco leaf and dill scents to the tight band of mineral, dried currant, sage, cheddar and sandalwood notes.
Light and fragrant, with a silky core of raspberry and strawberry fruit, shaded with a loamy earth and green olive notes
Notable for its zesty, creamy, toasty oak, this also delivers a mix of ripe cherry, currant, anise and hazelnut. Focused, balanced, elegant and complex, ending with a long, detailed finish.
Paul Hobbs Napa Cabernet
Dense, yet supple and graceful, with tiers of black fruit, blackberry, wild berry, subtle spice, cedar and black licorice flavors. Ends with firm, fine-grained tannins.
Beaux Freres Pinot Noir
Rich and exotic, with layers of currant, black cherry, espresso, mocha, mineral and herb. Turns supple, all while maintaining its firm and youthful tannic structure.
The impeccably made 2006 Dominus boasts a dense plum/purple color in addition to a fragrant perfume of cocoa, cedar, coffee and copious quantities of black fruits.
Chimney Rock Stag’s Leap District
Supple and harmonious, offering tapered plum, wild berry and cedar Stag’s Leap District notes, with complex spices and touches of black licorice and nutmeg. Full-bodied and intense, yet elegant and stylish, ending with a subtle burst of sweet ripe plum
