NV Laluca Prosecco
Veneto, Italy
The nose is instantly defined and distinctive, offering up bold orchard fruits, crisp pears, and lemon curd, all of which come together in a rich, creamy off-dry style that is extremely appealing. There is a deft touch of minerality, playing nicely against the subtle sweetness of the wine. Vinified entirely in stainless steel employing the Charmat method, native, indigenous yeasts are utilized when possible. The finish shows excellent length and fine overall balance.

2012 Bread and Butter Chardonnay
Napa, California
The color is a rich, deep golden yellow with bright flashes of brilliance. It begins with a combination of bright tropical and
citrus fruits. Then the notes of cream and dough begin to rise to the surface and balance with the fruit. Floral and oak aromas develop last. Wonderful flavors of apricot, lemon zest, papaya, banana, and honeysuckle. Then buttered popcorn and vanilla oak characters emerge from the background to soften the fruit. There is a great balance of acidity and richness.

2010 Clos de Los Siete
Mendoza, Aregentina
57% malbec, 15% each merlot and cabernet franc, 10% syrah and 3% petit verdot): Saturated ruby. Pungent aromas of cassis, blackberry, licorice and violet pastille. Sweet, pliant and generous, with just enough acidity to give life and shape to the black fruit and bitter chocolate flavors. Finishes long and flavorful, with substantial chewy, ripe tannins and lingering notes of chocolate and minerals.

2012 Aviary Cabernet
Napa, California
Deep garnet in color opening with aromas of black berries, dried plums, cigar box, and a hint of pepper. The broad mid-palate is rich and balanced with flavors of plum, currant, and black tea. The lower alcohol and softer tannins give this wine definition and structure in a more elegant and approachable style.

Seduction in a glass. Richly concentrated, juicy and dense with woodland berries, ripe dark cherry, bergamot and fig, handsomely accentuated by nuances of warm spice and molten dark chocolate. Supple and beautifully complex with stunning depth creating perfect harmony between both texture and flavor all the while offering a lengthy, generous, decadent finish.
