2015 Geyser Peak Walking Tree Sonoma Cabernet Sauvignon

Winemaker Notes: A consistent favorite of intimate bistros and innovative eateries, this wine showcases the wonderful pleasures of Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. The deep plum color of this sumptuous Cabernet Sauvignon gives way to expressive aromas of white pepper, dark berry fruit, and cassis. Aging in French oak barrels softens the otherwise firm tannins and introduces hints of toasted vanilla and leather on the palate. Luscious blueberry and blackberry flavors are refined and perfectly balanced by a spiciness that lingers on a long and elegant finish. Blend: 93% Cabernet Sauvignon and 7% Shiraz. $26 Our Price $10.95 (Arrives this afternoon) We have not been able to evaluate this wine, so if you would like to taste it come by today and we will taste it together.

2014 Rosenblum Rockpile Zinfandel

Winemaker Notes: The power and grace of our Rockpile Road Zinfandel is a culmination of its unique climate, soil and pedigree. Bold, dark fruit, redolent with blueberries and boysenberry jam, shapes the core and establishes the masculine, mountain character of this high-elevation Zinfandel. Black pepper, cocoa and toasted oak spices weave through the multiple layers, joined by big, chewy tannins. Low yields in 2014 further enhanced concentrated flavors, delivering red fruit tones that lend elegance and promise good aging potential. From one of the great AVAs, our Rockpile Road Zinfandel packs a truckload of berries on the palate. Medium to full bodied, this a superb choice with barbecued pork ribs. $42 Our Price $11.95 (Unexpectedly, 5 cases arrived on our doorstep. 6 bottle limit per customer please) Due to the limited quantity, this product will not be available online.
