Chateau de Saint Cosme Côtes du Rhône 2016
Winemaker Notes :
After the magnificent 2015, here is the superb 2016. The region combines old vines, magnificent terroirs, fairly low yields and an outstanding climate.
This 2016 vintage shows top quality fruit of blackcurrant and wild raspberry, magnificently intense color and layered texture with notes of truffle and licorice. Although this wine is designed for early-drinking, it can be kept for long.

Lafond SRH Chardonnay 2015Winemaker Notes : The Santa Rita Hills is a small appellation at the western end of the Santa Ynez Valley that has gained national recognition for its Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. The Valley runs west to east, opening a gap in the coastal range, allowing the late afternoon ocean fog to roll in where it lingers until early morning. The surrounding hills trap the fog before it is dissipated in the wider Santa Ynez Valley. The fog cools the vines from the day's summer heat and it is this combination of warm days and cool nights that gives the wine its complexity as well as providing acidity to give it structure. 100% barrel fermented, 100% malolactic fermentation
