PERFECT GIT IDEAS FOR THE WINE LOVER IN YOUR LIFE

Gravity®

V.2014 // Red Blend

Gravity® Red Blend is named for a remote, hard-to-reach block on one of the lowest slopes of the Monte Rosso Vineyard.

This dark, dense wine is a blend of six varietals led by Petite Sirah, Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel that vividly expresses the power and depth of a great mountain vineyard. It is filled with intense fruit flavors that range from boysenberry and blueberry jam to blackberry and fig, woven through with lovely accents of black truffle and dusty cocoa that create a full-bodied, luscious mouthfeel.

 

Sentinel

V.2014 // Cabernet Sauvignon

Sentinel Cabernet Sauvignon is inspired by the shield-shaped block overseeing the entrance to Monte Rosso Vineyard, a site that produces grapes with the layers and power that are the foundation of great Cabernet.

A muscular and intense wine with deep tannins, a rich mouthfeel, sumptuous fruit and tremendous potential for aging. The forceful, concentrated flavors include ripe currants, blackberry and cherry layered with hints of anise and toasted cedar, all echoing through a long, plush finish that is framed with notes of sweet cream.

2014 Mercury Head

Cabernet Sauvignon

An alluring hue of dark garnet sits in the glass, encircled by a glowing ruby rim. Immediate aromas of ripe black cherry, blueberry and classic cassis are supported by undertones of lavender, jasmine, sage, tobacco, cigar box and the slightest touch of anise. Rich and vibrant upon entry, flavors of dark plums, figs and black fruit transform into sweet vanilla and dark chocolate framed by velvety and plush tannins. The wine finishes with great length and a touch of acidity—an elegant Cabernet Sauvignon from select vineyards in the Napa Valley

SENSORY

Para Maria already shows off its breadth and complexity at a tender young age.  Lively, peppy balance and juicy brambly blackberry.  Graphite and cracked pepper create an impression of seriousness with a hint of savory wood from the whole-bunch carbonic fermentation.

 

 DELILLE CELLARS Cabernet Sauvignon ‘Four Flags 2013

The 2013 DeLille Cellars ‘Four Flags’ Cabernet follows up the highly impressive 2012 bottling and is sourced from the Grand Ciel, Upchurch, Ciel du Cheval and Klipsun vineyards. This wine begins with intense aromatics of black tea, Asian spices, dark chocolate and Turkish coffee grounds. The wine has rich flavors of mocha, blackberry cobbler, anise and creme de cassis with suggestions of black olive and creosote. This is exotic and memorable wine that will have a long life.
