Charles Smith The Velvet Devil 2015Winemaker Notes: This little Devil is wrapped in a velvet robe. Full with density and bursting with flavor. Dark fruit, cherry, and blackberry. Brimming with cedar, pipe tobacco and earth. The truth is in the name: Velvet! Pair with roasted pork and grilled steaks.
Alban Vineyards Central Coast Viognier 2016Winery Notes: Forward fruit, dense, peach and apricot with a surprising core of minerals and freshness. This wine should be consumed within 3 years of its vintage for those looking for the primary stone fruit and pear notes which Viognier can convey. The wine will age gracefully for a minimum of 4 years with proper storage, but secondary flavors will steadily overcome the aromatics and fresh fruitiness.

It closes with a satiating finish that is long and textured, supported by ample red berries and soft, dusty tannins.

The texture is broad and velvety, offering concentrated flavors of boysenberry, blueberry, black cherry and cocoa that are powerfully framed by savory notes of bacon fat and pepper. Plush tannins and lengthy fruit converge into a smooth, seamless finish. The rich yet approachable fruit character of the 2015 Renegade is a fine match for Provençal leg of lamb, beef pot roast with vegetables and herbs, bacon-wrapped filet, and classic cassoulet.

Domaine de la Charbonniere Châteauneuf-du-Pape Les Hautes Brusquières Cuvée Spéciale 2015This cuvee is usually made of Grenache (70%) and Syrah (30%) The vines are between 30 to 50 years old. All the grapes come from the Brusquières plateau, in the north of Châteauneuf du Pape, where we can find the famous round pebbles and a clayey subsoil Since 2000, we have decided to destem and to crush all grapes. Fermentation is in wood and stainless vats. Vatting lasts 3 to 5 weeks, depending on the vintage at a temperature between 25 and 30°C. A release or a punching of the cap is done every 2 days and pumping over every day. The malolactic fermentation happens in barrels and vats. Ageing continues in barrels and big oak tanks during 12 - 18 months depending on the vintage.

The texture is refined, the tannins well-integrated, and the entire wine deeply intricate and harmonious.
