What wines will you taste?
Moshin Rosé Sonoma County 2020
Westside Crossing 'Resilience' While pressing Pinot Noir, Grenache, and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes for red wine, Moshin Vineyards collected "free-run" juice to craft a dry rose for immediate enjoyment. The fresh and youthful 2020 Westside Crossing 'Resilience' bottling delivers all the red berry, citrus, and floral accents celebrated in the summer sipper style.
Heir Apparent Anderson Valley Chardonnay 2019
Located at the northern limit of California's viticultural areas, Anderson Valley offers a cool climate well suited to growing Burgundian grapes. Additional hang time in 2019 resulted in Chardonnay with deeper fruit flavors, fresh floral hints, and balanced structure, qualities readily perceptible in Heir Apparent's medium-bodied release.
Cantine Paradiso Posta Piana Negroamaro 2018
Cantine Paradiso's elevated 'pergola' system defends their Negroamaro vines against Puglia's intense heat, allowing Mediterranean breezes underneath and shielding the ripening fruit from direct sun. Success is measured in a glass of 2018 'Posta Piana' - a wine that brims with elderberry syrup and pastry crust aromas while
Corte Grande Valpolicella Ripasso Classico Superiore 2018
The ripasso technique turns the weight and flavor of Valpolicella up a notch by giving wines contact with the dried grape skins remaining after Amarone production. Corte Grande's 2018 Classico Superiore bottling delivers an outstanding example of the style, melding lush red fruit, velvety tannins, and seamlessly integrated oak-spice accents.
