Includes a bottle each:
- Flowers 2007 Perennial Red
Fruit aromas such as plums, strawberry, blackberry, and raspberry are at the core of this wine. Jamminess with hints of coffee, mineral and chocolate contribute to a wonderful Perennial aroma. Mouth filling flavors of cranberries and cherry, a smooth texture, followed by a well-balanced tannin and acidity profile. Delicious upon release.
74% Pinot Noir, 16% Syrah, 8% Pinot Meunier and 2% Chardonnay
- Flowers 2007 Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir
Fresh focused fruit aromas of cherry, raspberry, and plum are followed by hints of violet, spice, mineral, and pepper. This wine offers crisp acidity upon entry unfolding with juicy flavors of strawberry, raspberry, black fruits and leather. The 2007 vintage offers intense fruit flavors on the mid palate. Tannins are supple creating a lingering finish with cola and smokiness.
- Flowers 2007 Sonoma Coast Chardonnay
Showing balanced depth and complexity, light straw to golden color. Aromas unfold with layers of lemon drop, pear, apricot and wet stone minerality. This vintage shows crispness and intense fruit on the palate; lush and balanced citrus finish with roundness in mouth feel. Showing very well now and will continue to gain complexity for 1-3 years.
"On the one hand sweet and juicy, but on the other a bit bound up by its finishing acids, this firmly balanced, moderately deep effort clearly needs some time to unfold. Its intense themes of ripe apples are accented with highlights of citrus, minerals and green herbs, and, even if a bit truncated at the finish just now, it shows the kind of concentration and substance to encourage two or three years of keeping."
Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine
The home of Port—perhaps the world’s most popular after-dinner drink, the Douro region of Portugal is one of the world’s oldest delimited wine regions, established in 1756. Less well-known but often of excellent quality are the region’s dry table wines, both red and white. The vineyards of the Douro, set on the slopes surrounding the Douro river (known as the Duero in Spain), are among the steepest in the world, necessitating the use of terraces in much of the region. This often requires grapes to be harvested by hand—a labor-intensive process. The climate here is Mediterranean, with hot, dry summers and cold winters. There are three sub-regions of the Douro—Baixo Corgo, the mildest and wettest, Cima Corgo, where many of the best producers are situated, and Douro Superior, the hottest and driest. The best sites, typically with schist-based soils, are reserved for Port production, while table wines are usually grown on granite.
While more than 100 indigenous varieties are approved for wine production in the Douro, there are five primary grapes that make up most Port and table wines. Touriga Nacional is the finest of these, prized for its deep color, tannic and concentrated structure, and floral aromatics. Along with Touriga Nacional, Tinta Roriz (Spain's Tempranillo) helps to provide the backbone to these wine and adds bright acidity and red fruit flavors. Touriga Franca and Tinta Barroca help round out the blend with their soft, supple textures. Tinta Cão, a fine but low-yielding variety, is rarely planted but still highly valued for its ability to produce excellent, complex wines. Rosé Port and table wines are produced from the same varieties, while whites are generally crisp, mineral-driven blends of Arinto, Viosinho, Gouveio, Malvasia Fina, and an assortment of others.
