The Virtual Wine Tasting 3 Pack
2015 Cabernet Franc
Always intriguing and most definitely thought provoking, our 2015 shows characteristically spicy aromas of cinnamon, crushed herbs and pine needles, but is also loaded with black raspberry, cola and caramel. The sweet-savory contradiction shows through on the palate with elegant, ripe raspberry layered with notes of cedar and olives. Enjoy the bright firm finish as the tannins grip at the end. Either a bit of cellaring or a grilled, spice-rubbed rib-eye will settle this wine into submission.
2016 Petite Sirah
Full of macerated blackberry preserves, violets and sassafras aromas, we were swooning as this wine continued to open and show brambly fruit layered over a myriad of spice notes. There is nothing little about the grip this wine had on our palate. The jammy, dark fruit is hedonistic where the dusty cocoa powder tannins are still a bit formidable in this young wine. Find your favorite fat to tame this 2016 vintage, may we recommend an order of roasted bone marrow with a parsley salad or a fatty triple cream smeared on your favorite crispy bread to work magic. We promise this black beauty will only get better with a decade or two of age!
2015 Calistoga Estate Cabernet Sauvignon
A unique wine proving not all Cabernet is created equal, rich and sexy year after year makes it a favorite of our winemaker. Unusual blueberry fruit shines with abundant layers of raspberry not to be outdone by root beer, cola and licorice aromas. Meltingly rich on the palate, the jammy fruit harmonizes with mocha oak flavors from the barrel aging, vibrant acidity and balanced tannins.
