The PlumpJack Estate Cabernet Sauvignon is a dense, opulent wine that honors its Oakville terroir with great structure and balance. Notes of blackberry and cherry on the nose carry over onto the palate, and intriguing threads of black pepper, mint, vanilla and spice throughout the aromas and flavors enhance the wine's complexity.
"The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate, which is a blend of 96% Cabernet Sauvignon and 4% Petit Verdot, is a beauty. Bigger-boned and framed than many 2014s, with more structure, this is classic Oakville material, with an opaque purple color and a big, sweet kiss of graphite, blackcurrants, Christmas fruitcake and spice box. Full-bodied and opulent, with moderate tannin, this is a gorgeous wine to drink now and over the next 20 or more years."- Wine Advocate
A true Napa Valley (and Bordeaux) legend, Opus One is the story of a shared dream of two great men of wine: Baron Philippe de Rothschild of Château Mouton Rothschild and renowned Napa Valley vintner Robert Mondavi. Having met for the first time in Hawaii in 1970, the partners eventually agreed to launch a wine together in the Napa Valley. The joint venture they named Opus One produced its first vintage in 1979 and opened as a winery in 1991.

Made by Kent Rasmussen, the Ramsey label (named for his wife) has been around for decades. It is often found on restaurant lists, as
Kent chooses grapes and blends with great care to achieve stylistic continuity, year in, year out, at reasonable price points. This Pinot has wonderful deep flavors dominated by dark red fruit, bramble-berries and rose characters, but it doesn’t stop with those simple descriptors. It is rich and complex, yet full of bright fruitiness and spice. There are bright cherry notes, toasty oak and a good hit of classic Burgundian complexity. Over it all is a bright balance of cardamom spice. The tannins are in just a little drying, sort of like chewing on a marigold, and offset the fruit nicely. And all for under $20!
The 2015 vintage gave the 2015 PlumpJack Merlot, Napa Valley aromas of velvety raspberry, bright blackberry, sweet plum, white flowers and wild mushroom crostini. The barrels sprinkle in campfire s'mores and warming spices. The palate is delicate upon entry and crescendos to full-bodied and rich on the mid-palate. Bright acid and beautiful structure give this wine great tension, relentless balance and persistence on the finish that concludes with warm cocoa and fresh vanilla.
Our Estate Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon dazzles with its opulent, brambly blue and blackberry layers, balanced by dark chocolate and an incredibly welcoming personality. This gorgeous wine is unusually open, resonant and richly layered. Hints of smoke, tar, licorice and minerality add complexity to the intense dark fruit. "This is a wine I want to drink, not merely taste", says winemaker Danielle Cyrot. All the elements come together in an effortless, inviting wine loaded with layers of intrigue.

The 2016 Block Nine Pinot is beautifully long and rich in ripe cherry and berry flavors. The aromas exhibit generous bright fruit with a mix of strawberry, violets, plum, tea, and a hint of clove. Flavorful and silky in the mouth with good body, this wine is seductive showing wild cherries and a hint of sandalwood to complete its complex finish.
The 2013 Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is garnet in color with a ruby red rim, it has an alluring nose of blackberry bramble, baking spices, and black olive. Aromas of vanilla, cassis, and sage fill the glass, revealing the influence of American oak barrel aging. On the palate, notes of raspberry are complemented with lingering acidity and a finish of dusty, silky tannins. Given proper cellaring, this wine will provide drinking pleasure through 2036.

"The least expensive wine in the Cade portfolio is their 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley, a blend of 79% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12 % and 9% Malbec. This is a soft, juicy, fruit-forward Cabernet Sauvignon that fits the vintage profile. Beautifully dark ruby/purple with plenty of cassis, black cherry and plum, the wine is medium to full-bodied with supple tannins and lushness in a front-end loaded, consumer-friendly style. Drink it over the next decade." -Wine Advocate
"The Prisoner was inspired by the “mixed blacks” first made by the Italian immigrants who originally settled in Napa Valley. The Prisoner is now the most recognized Napa Valley red blend, leading the resurgence of interesting blends by incorporating Zinfandel with the unlikely mix of Cabernet Sauvignon, Petite Sirah, Syrah, and Charbono.
Features enticing aromas of Bing cherry, dark chocolate, clove, and roasted fig. Persistent flavors of ripe raspberry, boysenberry, pomegranate, and vanilla linger harmoniously, for a smooth and luscious finish."
The Pesquera Tinto's cherry red color reveals its youth and fruitiness. Its aspect is clean and appears to be glyceric. On the nose, the wine's intense bouquet reveals the best dark fruit marked by impeccable wood aromas. Hints of fallen leaves and spices such as vanilla. On the palate, the smooth entry becomes lush with abundant ripe tannins and an excellent balance between its acidity and heat. The presence of the well-integrated oak complements the fruit and spice beautifully to display a wine of great balance. A refined, long-lasting and elegant finish.
Pairs perfectly with roasted meats, farm yard poultry, veal stews as well as semi-cured cow and/or goat cheese.
"Black cherry and red plum flavors are fresh and lively in this juicy red. Light, firm tannins and citrusy acidity keep this focused. Balanced and energetic. Drink now through 2023. Tasted twice, with consistent notes."- Wine Spectator
"The 2015 Brouilly Reverdon, which had been bottled about one month prior to my visit, has a powerful but primal bouquet, clearly laden with plenty of fruit. The definition is here though. The palate is fleshy and supple on the entry but then those tannins cloak the mouth, without overwhelming, finishing in quite a sensual style. This has much more to give but it should be given 3-4 years to allow the terroir to really be expressed. What are you waiting for? This is a knockout Brouilly." -Wine Advocate
A deep ruby red color. The nose evokes aromas of red fruit, blackberries, black cherries and licorice. In the mouth one finds hints of wild thyme and a finely structured wine that shows very good length.
"Bright violet. Intense dark berry and cherry compote aromas are complemented by suggestions of licorice and candied flowers. Palate-caressing black raspberry and bitter cherry flavors pick up peppery spice and lavendar qualities on the back half. Rich yet lively, showing no excess fat. The juicy, focused finish is given shape by silky, harmonious tannins and leaves behind a gently sweet dark berry note."- Vinous Media

With its broad array of origins and clones, this wine displays aromas of cocoa, pomegranate and raspberry on the nose and the palate as well as a light touch of nutmeg, cinnamon and allspice. True to our house style, it is elegantly textured with seamlessly integrated, silky, polished tannins.
Antiquum Farm is unusual in its ability to ripen lush fully mature deep dark fruit, and yet retain abundant natural acidity, given its high elevation vineyard: formerly Old School Vineyards, winemaker Stephen Hagen bought the property in 1999 and planted about 21 acres of wine grapes. Their 800 feet elevation is considered the viable elevation limit for growing Pinot Noir in the Willamette Valley. Diurnal variation is extreme which tends to allow the grapes to hold onto acidity. The soil is uniquely bellpine, a silty clay loam over sandstone parent material. It is the most depleted of all classified vineyard soil types in Oregon.
This vineyard produces grapes with loads of fine-grained fruit-driven tannin. Generous treatments of French oak (40% in the Juel) never overwhelm the unique attributes of this site. There is a vibrant tension between shining acidity and opulent depth of fruit. Deep bramble and confectionary fruit are offset by singing tropical notes, rose and hints of lavender and violet. Background notes of aged balsamic, tobacco and blood orange are present, too.
This wine leads with a bouquet of red fruits and cherry blossom aromas. The silky palate is layered with notes of cherry, hibiscus, mandarin peel and a faint coppery counterpoint to the fruit. In addition, one might find a hint of dark plum. The finish is fine-boned and harmonious.
Banshee Wines was founded by three friends Noah Dorrance, Baron Ziegler, and Steve Graf from the Midwest and East Coast who shared a passion for wine and a lifelong dream of owning their own winery. In 2009, they pooled their money together to make the 1st vintage of Banshee Wines Pinot Noir, and they've been doing it ever since.
