Silver Oak Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2013
Our Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon reflects over forty years of winemaking in Sonoma County's Alexander Valley, a delicious and seamless expression of Cabernet Sauvignon from this historic California wine region made famous by this varietal. A blend of multiple vineyard sites including our Red Tail, Miraval and Geyserville Estate vineyards, this 100% Cabernet Sauvignon gains complexity through the varied terroir found across Alexander Valley's hillsides, benchlands and valley floor. With exuberant dark fruit flavors and a rich and generous mid-palate, our Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is released six months ahead of our Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon as its approachable, fruit-forward profile lends itself to earlier enjoyment.

Renteria Russian River Pinot Noir 2014Winemaker Notes: This 2014 Pinot Noir is a beautiful wine that captures the terroir of the Russian River Valley. Generous notes of red cherry and fresh wild strawberry sail over a hint of baking spices, dusty earth and sweet tannin. The mouthfeel is rich, round and juicy, the bright acidity carrying the nuanced flavors through an echoing finish.
Oceana Estates Chablis 2015Winemaker Notes: The 2015 Oceana Chablis presents as a delicate, pale yellow in color. You are immediately drawn into the glass as notes of lime and wet stone with hints of chalk and citrus blossom greet you on the nose. As you begin to taste, the palate follows the nose, and is well balanced between citrus notes and minerality, with a gentle reminder of kafir lime leaves. The bright acidity and spreading mid-palate lead to a lingering, stoney finish. The elegant balance found in this glass of wine make it a delight to enjoy on it’s own or paired with food. Pair with fresh uni or bigeye tuna tartare.
