      Description

      We've gathered three top wines from select regions in California, representing grape varietals that California does best. Wines include: Clos la Chance Monterey Chardonnay, LangeTwins Lodi Zinfandel and DeLoach Vineyards Heritage Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon.

      Wine Gift Trio:

      • Clos la Chance Monterey Chardonnay
        A burst of tropical fruit on the nose leads to pineapple and banana with a hint of mango and coconut on a refreshing, tropical palate. The wine is aged exclusively in stainless steel (no oak), so the fruit really shines through, along with distinctively bright acidity.
      • Lange Twins Zinfandel
        Zinfandel grows well in the warm, sunny regions of California where it produces wines with big fruit and spice. This fabulous Zinfandel delivers loads of fresh, vibrant blackberries and notes of spice, all balanced by a touch of vanilla oak and soft tannins.
      • DeLoach Heritage Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon
        Sourced from selected Cabernet Sauvignon grapes grown in prestigious, sustainably farmed vineyards across California. This Cabernet Sauvignon is a finely balanced wine with fruit flavors of blackberry, cherry and plum with hints of cedar spice and tobacco.

      Due to the popularity of this gift, wines or vintages sometimes sell out. Should this happen, we will always substitute with the current vintage and wines with equal or greater value.

      Critical Acclaim

      Famous for its food-friendly, approachable wines and their storied history, Chianti is perhaps the best-known wine region of Italy. This sub-zone of Tuscany has it all—sweeping views of undulating hills, the hot Mediterranean sun, hearty cuisine, and a rich artistic heritage. Historically packaged in short, round, straw-covered bottles known as “fiaschi” and containing insipid red liquid, Chianti today is typically not your Italian grandfather’s pizza wine. The heart of the Chianti zone is known as Chianti Classico, as the region has expanded its boundaries over time to capitalize on the wine’s fame, thus diluting its reputation. Within Chianti there are seven other subzones with unique characteristics, including Colli Senesi, Colli Fiorentini, and Chianti Rufina.

      Chianti wines are made primarily of Sangiovese, with other varieties comprising up to 20% of the blend. Generally, local varieties are used, including Canaiolo, Mammolo, and Marzemino, but international varieties such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Syrah have also been approved in more recent years. Basic, inexpensive Chianti is simple and fruit-forward and makes a great companion to any casual dinner involving red sauce. At its apex, it is savory and rustic with high acidity, firm tannins, and notes of tart red fruit, dried herbs, fennel, salami, balsamic vinegar, and smoky tobacco. Chianti Riserva, typically the top bottling of a producer, can benefit handsomely from a decade or two of cellaring.

      Sangiovese

      View all wine

      The perfect intersection of bright fruit and savory earthiness, Sangiovese is the backbone variety in Tuscany. While it is best known as the chief component of Chianti, it reaches the height of its power and intensity in the complex, long-lived Brunello di Montalcino. Elsewhere throughout Italy, it can make inexpensive wines for daily consumption ranging from inoffensive to deliciously easy. On the French island of Corsica, under the name Nielluccio, it produces excellent bright and refreshing red and rosé wines with a personality of their own. Sangiovese has also enjoyed moderate popularity in California and Washington State over the last few decades.

      In the Glass

      Sangiovese is a medium-bodied red with savory flavors of tart cherry, plum, tomato, fresh tobacco, anise, thyme, oregano, and dried earth. High-quality, well-aged examples will take on notes of smoke, clay pot, leather, gamey meat, potpourri, and dried fruits. Corsican Nielluccio is distinguished by a subtle perfume of dried flowers.

      Perfect Pairings

      Sangiovese is the ultimate pizza and pasta red—its high acidity, moderate alcohol, and grainy tannins create an affinity with tomato-based dishes, spicy meats, and anything off the barbecue.

      Sommelier Secret

      Although it is the star variety of Tuscany, cult-classic “Super-Tuscan” wines may contain no Sangiovese at all! Since the 1970s, local winemakers have been producing big, bold wines (with price tags to match) that are typically monovarietal or a blend of one or more of several international varieties—usually Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, or Syrah—with or without Sangiovese.
