Holiday Magnums

Happy Holidays!  

Whether it'll be roast goose or takeout Chinese, we are so thrilled to be able to offer you a combination of two magnums to grace your holiday table this year -- our 2012 Merlot and 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon from Oakville; Fedex 2-day shipping included. Member discounts applied automatically at checkout. Details below.

The 2019 harvest is complete and resting gracefully in cellar. We are excited to begin to share some details with you about these wines. We have been working diligently to produce wines of substance and balance without losing the transparency and purity of fruit that we hope mark our wines in the best of vintages. 2019 was classic, reminiscent of 2012; perhaps 2007 as well. To name just a few, the Cabernets, from three vineyards in Coombsville, Yountville, and St. Helena, are taut and luscious. Come taste with us from barrel in cellar this winter by making an appointment here.

Until then, enjoy these two wonderfully aged Napa Valley wines. At seven years of bottle age, they are just peaking. Don't miss them!

2012 Merlot Oak Knoll District of Napa Valley 1500ml -- Magnum

This single vineyard wine comes from Jaeger Ranch on Big Ranch Road. The fruit was manually sorted and aged thirty months in a combination of French and American oak barrels, 50% new. The wine is balanced by sweet blackberry flavors and a tart raspberry sweetness that lingers on the finish. 164 cases produced.

2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville Napa Valley 1500ml -- Magnum

The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon from Oakville comes from young vines grown in a deep composite gray clay soil with tiny, bright blue berries. We harvested by hand on the afternoon of October 22, and manually sorted and fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel for twenty-eight days. One barrel of Merlot from the Oak Knoll District was blended in (10%), and the wine spent thirty months in French and American oak barrels, 60% new. We produced ten barrels of this wine. The wine is layered and refined, with notes of blueberries, mild dried herbs, vanilla and confectioner’s sugar. 207 cases produced.

Two Magnum pack $320, Fedex 2-day included.

Warmest wishes this holiday season,

Juliana & Sean
