2016 Bouchard Pere et Fils Reserve Chardonnay Bourgogne-" Reserve Bourgogne Chardonnay is a pale golden color. The nose shows hints of white flesh fruits, including peach and pear. A refreshing and smooth Chardonnay, balanced, with a touch of oak." Winemaker's Notes


2016 Ferrari-Carano Chardonnay - "This Chardonnay delights with aromas of pear, white peach, orange blossom, vanilla, graham cracker and buttercream, perfectly balanced by flavors of Fuji apple, cinnamon, apricot, quince and hazelnut. Lingering creamy and toasted oak notes round out the finish.This versatile Chardonnay pairs perfectly with seafood, poultry, white meats and dishes with cream sauces. Try preparations that include citrus, butter, cream, cheese, bacon, nutmeg, thyme, basil or toasted nuts.." Winemaker's Notes


2016 Raeburn Pinot Noir Russian River Valley "Brilliant crimson in color, Raeburn Russian River Valley Pinot Noir leads with a pleasing aroma of baking spice and vanilla. The palate is marked with stunning fruit flavors of lush wild blueberry, raspberry, and blackberry with undertones of roasted hazelnut. The finish is graceful and sophisticated.The Pinot Noir grapes are hand-picked during the cool early morning hours to preserve their fresh, delicate flavors. Once the grapes arrive at the winery, they are carefully destemmed and cold soaked for several days to enhance color and flavor. Fermentation takes place in small, open top containers with twice daily punch downs to intensify color and structure. After a gentle pressing, the wine is racked several times and transferred into French oak barrels, 25% new, for 11 months of aging." Winemaker's Notes


2014 Markham Merlot "Dark ruby color with aromas of vanilla and dark chocolate. The palate shows flavors of vibrant cherry fruit, which play against the chewy tannins and a long, graceful finish. Blend: 86% Merlot, 12% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2% Petite Sirah. Winemaker's Notes


2015 Double Canyon Cabernet Sauvignon Horse Heaven Hills-"This Cabernet Sauvignon showcases the essence of the varietal as expressed by this prestigious appellation. The persistent wind that combs across the desert landscape coupled with the unique terroir sets this place apart from any other winegrowing region in Washington State. The result is a Cabernet Sauvignon with balance, structure, and elegance. " Winemaker's Notes


2016 Textbook Cabernet Sauvignon Napa- "The 2016 TEXTBOOK Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits flavors of plums, and blueberries. It shows an excellent acid structure and finishes with a soft elegant mouthfeel. We believe it is a “textbook” example of this noble variety grown in this outstanding appellation and that it can be enjoyed for several years to come.The core of our Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon comes from three sites situated within the Stag’s Leap, Oak Knoll and Oakville AVA’s. The Stag’s Leap site delivered deep color, structure and depth. The Oak Knoll Cabernet site exemplifies its provenance with incredible balance. It is not “over-the-top.” Our Oakville District site, next door to Screaming Eagle, again strutted its stuff, delivering deep color, high-quality grape tannin and aromatics. Collectively, TEXTBOOK 2016 showcases superlative “Napa Valley Cabernet” in a classic, delicious and well-mannered way.." Winemaker's Notes


2016 Terrazas Reserve Malbec Mendoza- "Bright red color with purple shades. Intense floral and fruity notes. Presence of violets, ripe black cherry and plum aromas. Reveals a toasty and spicy character of black pepper and chocolate. Its sweet and juicy mouthfeel delivers finesse, delicate tannins and an elegant finish of black fruits." Winemaker's Notes


2015 Westwood Legend Red Blend - "Inspired by the richness and varietal diversity found in Sonoma, the concept behind Legend was to create a wine immediately accessible, delicious in its youth that would continue to age gracefully, delivering complexity and layers to an already seamless palate. The Rhône varietals boast a bouquet of wild herbs and rich forest berry fruit. Tannat provides an excellent backbone of tannins and superior focus while adding elegant floral aromatics. The fantastic varietals all blend masterfully with the sensation of ripe, opulent fruit creating a perfect harmony of elegance and richness culminating in a legendary wine experience." Winemaker's Notes
