OR while supplies last!
94 Point James Suckling: Made by winemaker Jean Hoefliger of Alpha Omega, this is gorgeous white, fleshy and complex in anise, pear and briny green olive. The texture is fleshy and balanced in lasting acidity that provides a freshness and succulence of great distinction.
94 Point Robert Parker: The stunning 2014 Chardonnay offers up steely notes of white currants, citrus oil, nectarine and white peach. Medium to full-bodied, it displays terrific acidity and beautiful fruit purity that reminds me of some of the great Domaine Niellon premier cru Chassagne-Montrachets of the mid-1980s. Drink it over the next 7-8 years.
On Sale Thru 6/05: $33.99
Winemker’s Notes: Bright blackberry, red plum, and raspberry fruit with notes of cranberry, black tea, spice and coriander seed. Luscious and balanced, with toasty oak and a long finish.
90 Point Robert Parker: The medium garnet-purple colored 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon is spicy on the nose with cassis, plums and cedar scents. Medium-bodied and well balanced, it shows nice purity in the mouth with grainy tannins and good length.
