2016 Viognier | Valley View Vineyard | $45 bottle, $13 glass
Typically white wines don’t get the treatment that this viognier got during production. On a whim, we decided to the take the very small amount of grapes that this vineyard gave us and make and ageable, deeply delicious oaked white. 72 hour skin contact cold soak and full primary and secondary fermentation in American oak makes this white wine broad and buttery on the palette and fruity lemon zest on the nose. Enjoy with sharp cheeses and spicy food. Limited 24 case production.
2014 Zinfandel | Faber Vineyard ~ San Diego County | $75 bottle | $15 glass
A quentissential zin nose of cherry crumble and cedar smoke with a broad body, notes of chocolate covered cherries and plum. Finishes nicely with light perrer and oak.
2014 Malbec | Hillsprings Vineyards ~ San Diego County | $75 bottle | $15 glass
Herby lavendar and fresh berries on the nose, with a passively long mouthfeel and light finish.
3 GENERATION 50 YEAR PORT (includes commemorative display box)
Bernardo Winery | Numbered, Limited bottling | $150 | $10 taste
This port is a culmination of 3 generations of winemaking at Bernardo, made with Tokay, Grenache and Muscat of Alexandria as the base wine and the brandy that was distilled here on property over 50 years ago. Rich Caramel, butterscotch, oaky overtones on the nose, with a full rich mouthfeel and brandy-esque finish.
A wonderful and meaningful gift for a wine or port lover or special treat for yourself.
