Red Wine by Badia a Coltibuono from Tuscany, Italy. Cancelli IGT is made from a blend of Sangiovese and others varieties. Very pleasing when young, it has great potential for improvement with cellaring. This blend of grape varieties was specifically developed to obtain a quality wine suitable for everyday use. The grape selection takes place in vineyards that are most suited to the production of young wines. Intense ruby red color, with purplish blue hues. Powerful on the nose, with aromas of cherry and ripe red fruits, accompanied by delicate hints of pepper. On the palate it is fresh, fragrant, with elegant, pleasantly persistent tannins .

This medium-bodied Pinot Noir opens with vibrant aromas of cherry, red raspberry and toasted almonds. Fresh avors of cranberry and sweet plum are intertwined with subtle hints of nutmeg and rose petal.

Let's get down to brass tacks. This Riesling is about the purity of the varietal flavors and California terroir. Brass Tacks Riesling offers crisp clean notes of fresh peach, honey and apricot with mineral qualities and bright acidity with a brisk, dry finish. This Riesling is sourced from Monterey County, where the cooling influence from the Pacific Ocean and Monterey Bay leads to one of the longest growing seasons in California. The cool climate allows for a longer hang time that leads to full, concentrated flavors and ideal acidity.

Carte Blanche possesses a fine but very regular stream of persistent bubbles. It has a golden color shimmering with old-gold reflections and has sweet, ripe fruit on the nose with intensely floral, honeyed notes and hints of warm, sugared almonds (frangipane). The attack is rich and creamy, filling the mouth with flavor but without a trace of heaviness. The warmth and sweetness of the nose follows through on the palate, now dominated by notes of crystallized citrus. This adds a freshness that balances the wine's volume and creates a sense of lasting harmony.
This sparkling wine is a pale, golden straw in color. Bubbles are full textured and persistent. On the nose the wine brings fresh citrus with hints of honey and white flowers. The flavor is fresh and clean, with ripe citrus, lemon, green apple, and touches of grapefruit, minerality, and some toast. The finish is light, refreshing, and crisp.
A beautiful gold color. The bubbles are persistent, fine and regular. The nose is pleasant, made very elegant by the large amount of Chardonnay. The Brut Souverain is sharp, well balanced and harmonious on the palate.

Lamadrid 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon - Red Wine
Red Wine by Lamadrid from Argentina, South America. We strive for an Agrelo terroir-driven Cabernet Sauvignon that has color and fruit concentration that over-delivers at its price point.
White Wine by Pacific Rim from Columbia Valley, Washington. Portrays bright crispness, subtle sweetness and aromas of jasmine, pear and apple, this wine exemplifies the harmony of Riesling. The sweetness plays wonderfully with fiery fare (from Thai to Mexican), while the natural acidity stands up to richer foods (from French to German).
Hundred Acre 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Ark Vineyard - Red Wine
Red Wine by Hundred Acre from Napa Valley, California. All Hundred Acre wines are made by sorting the fruit berry by berry, fermenting in small French oak fermenters, and long aging in the finest barriques. The secret to Hundred Acre is no compromise.
Dark as night. An absolutely explosive nose of ripe red and black fruits, licorice, coffee, cassis and pine boughs. Palate is gorgeously plush, rich, dense, long, and loaded with fruit. Tannin is smooth and ripe, finish lasts forever. A very flamboyant yet balanced Cabernet.
