Paul Hobbs Russian River Valley Chardonnay 2013This blend of top Russian River Valley vineyards displays a brilliant golden color and aromas of white flowers, baked pear tart, nectarine and toasted almond shortbread. The palate is full- bodied with flavors of Asian guava and key lime. The lengthy finish and bright acidity leaves you asking for more.
Dana Estates Lotus Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2011Fresh baked creamy raspberry tart aromas dominate with a hint of green sweet mint. Anise notes, always characteristic of Lotus, are especially noticeable on the palate in 2011. Darker fruit, cola and sassafras envelope the mountain tannin structure. Warm black berries dominate the finish, but a vibrancy and freshness keep the wine balanced and the fruit layered. As the tertiary components of the 2011 are exposed, this wine will reward those who can wait 10-15 years to enjoy it.
Hall Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc 2015Light yellow-green in hue, this refreshing and vibrant Sauvignon Blanc is bursting with aromas of citrus oil, honeysuckle and white peach with underlying notes of fennel seed and lemon grass. The bright, lively acidity on the palate is balanced with flinty minerality and mid-palate richness achieved through lees stirring.
