2011 Aviary Red Blend 36% Cabernet Sauvignon 35% Zinfandel 22% Merlot 7% Petit Syrah
Napa Valley, Ca
Presents aromas of cherry, blackberry, tobacco, and black currant, reinforced by notes of truffle, nutmeg and subtle cinnamon.

Refined oak-inspired elements of cedar and walnut highlight the rich dark fruit flavors, giving them an enticing black cherry pie quality.

2011 Matthew Joseph Cabernet
Napa Valley, Ca
The glass comes alive with aromas of Bing cherry and a touch of cocoa. With its incredible concentration and bright acidity, the palate begins with ripe cherry, toasted vanilla, and cassis. The perfectly balanced firm tannins come from the use of French oak and an earthiness from the Napa Valley terrior.
