Corte Sant'Alda Recioto della Valpolicella 2006
Full-bodied, intense and complex perfumes are especially matched by never-excessive sweetness.
Cakebread Cabernet Sauvignon 2016 750mlDeep shades of purple, and rich dark-red hues, signal that this is a quintessential Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. Characteristic aromas of ripe blackberry, boysenberry, dark chocolate and notes of oak precede balanced acidity and firm tannins. With forward fruit, and welcome mineral undertones, this is a perfectly balanced wine that is approachable now, yet will age beautifully. The grapes from throughout the valley that were farmed to make this Bordeaux-style blend provide a natural diversity of flavors.
Moët & Chandon Dom Pérignon 2009 750mlNotes of guava and spicy green grapefruit zest combine with stone fruit: white peach and nectarine. The wine opens up, with the whole complemented by woody vanilla and warm, lightly toasted brioche. The fruit is majestic: ripe, fleshy and profound. Beyond the richness and a certain voluptuousness is a strong impression of consistency that prevails. The wine's power is remarkably restrained. The various sensations - silky, salty, sappy, bitter and briny - converge and persist. Dom Pérignon Vintage 2009 is a wine that needs to be excited. It needs a framework, it appeals to be stretched with contrasts. The champagne reaches out to the "vegetable" and "mineral" worlds, calling out by sea urchin carbonara with cardamom mousse. It works brilliantly when it has something to chew on: octopus marinated in Sicilian orange juice and roasted in butter.
Chateau Tanunda The Chateau 100 Year Old Vines Shiraz 2008 750mlThe classic regional characters of dense, spicy blueberry fruit along with hints of liquorice, plum and all-spice are all delicately interwoven with 1/3 new and 2/3 older French oak. 2008 has all the hallmarks of being a truly great Eden Valley vintage and we believe this wine will age gracefully for 10 years+
Bryant Family Cabernet Sauvignon 2010 750ml100% Cabernet Sauvignon made from our 13-acre estate vineyard atop Pritchard Hill, overlooking Lake Hennessey. This First Growth vineyard is meticulously farmed by David Abreu, with whom we have worked closely for over 12 years. This wine is a beautiful expression of our unique terroir and a testament to the dedication of our winemaking and vineyard team to produce the finest possible wine from this site.
Ilegal Mezcal Reposado 750mlVelvety throughout. An exceptional drinking mezcal. Aged for four months in medium-charred American Oak. Caramelized pear and bitter orange on the nose. Clove, butterscotch, and hints of vanilla on the palate.
