2013 Schug Sauvignon Blanc
Sonoma Coast, California
This well-balanced Sauvignon Blanc is sourced from cooler vineyards in the southern end of the Sonoma Coast which contribute spice and bright tangy acidity, unique floral and lush fruit flavors reminiscent of melon, honeysuckle and grapefruit. These flavors are enhanced by the creamy richness of fermentation and aging on the yeast in older (neutral) casks. It finishes with lively acidity.

2012 Chappellet Napa Chardonnay
Napa, California
Possessing great defi¬nition and ripeness, as well as fresh, lively acidity, this Chardonnay shows the spectacular quality of the 2012 vintage. The nose is concentrated and e ffusive, with lovely layers of orange zest, lime, lemon drop, pear, Fuji apple and lychee, all underscored by hints of clove, nutmeg, vanilla and toast from barrel aging in French oak. On the lushly textured palate, flavors of lemon custard, ripe peach, apricot, crème fraîche and quince lead to a long, resonating ¬finish.

2012 Trim Cabernet
Layered with ripe strawberries, wet stone, and pipe tobacco. Raspberry and strawberry nuances lead into a touch of spice on the palate. These flavors continue through the surprisingly long finish. This is a wonderfully approachable wine that will improve in the bottle for another six years.”

2012 Chappellet Mountain Cuvee
Napa, California
39% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot, 12% Malbec, 8% Petit Verdot, 3% Cabernet Franc and 3% Syrah. The aromas are rich, ripe and enticing, with sweet fruit layers of plum, Bing cherry and cassis, as well as notes of mocha, roasted coffee, cedar and baking spices, all supported by delicious hints of French oak. On the palate, this wine is supple and round, with balanced tannins, weighty texture and a smooth, mouthfilling structure. Though there are abundant ripe red and black fruit flavors, there is also an elegant complexity to this wine that comes from artful blending

2012 Oakville Winery Zinfandel
Napa, California
This unique Oakville Zinfandel has developed a powerful structure that is sweet on the front palate and spicy on the back. Black currants, wild huckleberries, cherries and a melting essence of dark chocolate emerge from this full-bodied wine that finishes with a note of vanilla and cracked pepper.
