Tenuta Di Arceno Chianti

Notes from the winery: While our Chianti Classico is unmistakably Tuscan in origin, it offers a level of depth, power, and concentration that is rare for its classification. The fruit—mostly Sangiovese—comes from some of the coolest blocks at our estate, which accounts for the wine’s vibrant acidity. The dominant flavors include plums, earth, cherries, licorice, and cedar.

This vintage is reminiscent of the powerful fruit of 2015 with the racy structure of 2013. The nose exudes ripe fruit and floral notes of violets and roses, with undertones of cypress and cedar. The palate is lush and full, chewy and laden with fruit. Supple tannins and moderate acidity allow the fruit flavors to shine through, revealing layers of red fruit – cherry and plum – with notes of honeysuckle. A long finish gives way to herbal and spice notes of nutmeg, cinnamon and lingering black tea.

92 Points,, J.S., Jul. 2020

Antiche Terre Amore

Red blend from organic grapes.
Deep ruby red. 
Nose: Notes of plum and cherry with hints of raspberry. 
Taste: Complex aromas with notes of vanilla and fruity notes of plum and blackberry. 

Serve: Decant at least an hour before serving in large, deep glasses. Excellent with all kinds of red meat, grilled or braised, and accompanied by mature cheese. Rated 92 Points James Suckling.

Croix Narrow Gauge Pinot Noir
Russian River, Sonoma County, California

Croix Estate Pinot Noirs are filled with silky, robust, flavorful goodness.

92 Points, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Medium ruby in the glass, the 2017 Pinot Noir Narrow Gauge has a very spicy nose of cinnamon, peppercorn, dried leaves and potpourri with warm black cherries and berries and crushed red cherries. Medium-bodied and silky with loads of spices in the mouth, it has soft, grainy tannins and juicy acidity with a long, layered finish.

91 Points, Jeb Dunnuck
Moving to the Pinot Noirs, the 2017 Pinot Noir Narrow Gauge comes from the Russian River Valley and spent 15 months in 40% new oak. This medium ruby colored effort offers a great nose of black raspberries, mulled cherries, pine forest floor, and dried earth. It's juicy, medium-bodied, has plenty of fruit, good acidity, and a great finish.

Primarius Pinot Noir

Primarius wines embody sheer elegance where delicate flavors give way to full fruit expression; providing the most pleasurable drinking experience for wine lovers. Primarius wines represent the finest cool climate regions in Oregon and are a true reflection of the most famed varietal of the state, Pinot Noir. Latin for - distinguished - Primarius promises sophistication in every sip and exceeds expectations in quality, flavor and value.

88 Points, Sean P. Sullivan, Wine Enthusiast (Oct 2020)
The aromas display a sense of purity, with notes of strawberry, cinnamon stick, peppermint and spice. Fresh fruit-forward flavors follow, backed by bunched up tannins. A lingering finish caps it off. It needs time to open up, but it delivers.

Taken Chardonnay
Napa Valley, California

In a corner of the world steeped in heritage, yet unrestrained by convention, Taken Wine crafts their wine entirely from Napa Valley fruit. They view this traditional region through a decidedly of-the-moment lens, capturing the unmatched terroir of Napa as an ever-evolving narrative. A story of flavor, complexity and depth.

Winemaker Notes:
“The 2019 Taken Chardonnay boast a beautiful nose of spice, citrus and lemon blossom. On the palate, Asian pear, grapefruit and Gravenstein apple are rounded out with hints of butterscotch and walnut. The mouthfeel is juicy, though not too heavy, with an uplifting, refreshing, crisp finish. Bright Napa Valley acidity is balanced out with creaminess coming from a splash of Sonoma fruit.” — Rebecca Jain

Kale McGah Vineyard Rosé
Napa Valley, California

In 2008, Kale and Ranko Anderson set out to create Rhône inspired wines from extraordinary vineyards in Northern California under their own label, Kale Wines. Specializing in small production, handcrafted wines, Kale utilizes new technologies as well as ancient techniques to express the unique vineyards' most delicious characteristics.

Tasting Notes:
Watermelon rind and Freesia are persistent in the whole cluster pressed Grenache. Completely dry, this component of the blend is all about floral freshness and acidity. The Mourvédre brings weight, texture, color and spice. The Sonoma Cast Stone concrete egg makes the wine round; the acidity is expressed more as minerality rather than tartness. This provides structured balance through the finish, and leaves the palate energized. Our Rosé is made to be light, fresh and consumed immediately. Expect tartrates to form on the cork and bottle. Age at cellar temperature to avoid tartrates buildup.

McBride Sisters Sauvignon Blanc
Marlborough, New Zealand

Generous tropical fruits pair with lemongrass and citrus aromas. Ripe peach and mango aromas play with greener fruits like feijoa and Fuji apple. In the mouth, key lime flavors hang on a medium full, slightly oily body, which contrasts beautifully with the firm acidity and slightly mineral tone on the finish.
