We have added the following products to your shopping cart from a previous visit:
Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.
Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.
Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.
Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.
The backbone of our 2008 Sangiovese comes from the Game Farm Vineyard in Oakville.
The vineyard lies in dense, stony subsoil that mimics mountain growing conditions. It was
selected for its Brunello clone and shallow, rocky soil. In these soils, the Sangiovese
struggles to produce the highest quality grapes possible. The balance of the grapes were
grown in the heart of the Napa Valley. The 2008 harvest was nearly ideal with picking
beginning earlier than average.
Our 2008 Napa Valley Sangiovese is a deep garnet color. Perfumed aromas of raspberries,
black cherries, lilacs, and rose petals come forward on the nose. The Merlot supports a
chewy currant core on the mid-palate, accented by chocolate and hints of sandalwood. An
interesting mineral note appears on the back of the palate, and firm, silky tannins hold the
wine together. The finish is a lush thirty second trail of perfectly ripe, Bing cherries.
"Medium red. Cherry, redcurrant and floral aromas are complicated by a whiff of soil. Offers good sweetness and breadth to its spicy, bright red fruit flavors. Finishes with a fine dusting of tannins and a hint of mocha. The fruit is mostly from Game Farm Vineyard in Oakville, which McMahon says features "rocky Tuscan soil." This will be bottled in July.

The area was settled by a few choice wine families in the 1960's who bet that the wines of the area would grow and flourish. They were right. The Napa wine industry really took off in the 1980's, when vineyard...Read More About Napa Valley
Sangiovese (SAHN-gee-oh-VAY-zee) Blood of Jove (literally translated) The principal grape of Chianti - in fact, the principle grape of all of Tuscany - has had its ups and downs. For a stint in the 70s and 80s, wines labeled Chianti contained cheap red wine packaged in a straw casked bottle, most popular for the candle holder it would become. But no more. Sangiovese re...Read More About Sangiovese
