2015 Voss Sauvignon Blanc
Napa Valley, Ca
Sourced exclusively from a single, organic vineyard in Yountville, Napa Valley, our Sauvignon Blanc grapes are harvested early in the ripening season for more vibrancy and lower alcohol. The wine exhibits classic varietal characteristics of lemon and grapefruit on the nose, while vivid tropical fruits flood the palate. The finish is delightfully crisp and lingering. Serve well chilled. 89 Pts Wine Spectator

2014 Baileyana Firepeak Chardonnay
Edna Valley, Ca
Outstanding, with both bright acidity and solid richness. Revealing a light gold color to go with clean, crisp notes of white peach, citrus and hints of minerality, it’s medium-bodied, lively and refreshing on the palate, with just a touch of toasty oak on the finish. Completely barrel fermented and aged eight months in French oak, it shows the cooler climate of the Edna Valley, yet doesn’t skimp on fruit. 90 Pts Wine Advocate

2013 Domaine de la Cote Pinot Noir
Sta. Rita Hills, Ca
Light, bright red. Mineral-accented aromas of cherry, redcurrant and fresh rose show very good clarity and building spiciness. Silky and seamless on the palate, offering vibrant red fruit and rose pastille flavors and deeper notes of cola and anise. Finishes on a sexy floral pastille note, with gentle tannins, strong persistence and lingering minerality. 91 Pts Vinous

2013 Elizabeth Spencer Cabernet
Napa Valley, Ca
A wine with tremendous concentration and intensity of flavors. Beginning with fresh black berries, plum, violets, and cassis on the nose with a hint of leather, flint, and cinnamon. The palate is filled with brighter and fresher, red and black berries, crushed raspberries, figs, dates, and chocolate, lifted with a bright acidity, and lengthened with mouth-filling tannins. 95 pts SK & TC
