The 2014 Le Barrettage is deep dark blackberry in color. Enticing aromas rise from the glass in this appropriately aged offering: plum and cherry-like fruit with nuances of white pepper, green tea, cardamom spice, and sweet toasty French oak. It’s delicious and mouth-coating across the palate, ripe and concentrated, with silky smooth balance and refined pure flavors. The dense texture of the wine enhances the long lingering flavors and mirror the aromas. A blend of two different Syrah blocks, Grenache for liveliness, and a tiny slash of Petite Sirah for added power; it will pair beautifully with a huge array of cuisine. This delicious proprietary “Rhone style” blend from La Sirena was given additional time in bottle before release because honestly, it just keeps getting better!
This gorgeous 2015 Cab is dense and concentrated, starting with very dark ruby color in the glass. Aromas are Napa Valley at its best - layers of ripe berries, cherries, red currants, and toasty refined French oak accents. Open and expressive, with velvety and explosive flavors across the palate. Blackberry-like ripe Cab flavors with amazing silky textural tannins and a persistent long finish. Power packed concentration from this low production vintage. Already delicious upon release, and will surely be an appealing wine for collectors - its powerful structure and rich flavors ensure this wine will be a favorite for years to come.
Dark purplish color leads to a blast of black cherry fruit laced with dried currants. Racy dark fruit explodes on the palette until giving way to savory notes of marinated black olive, leather, and a touch of vanilla. The proximity to Rutherford provides bold but polished tannic structure that should allow the wine to age beautifully for 15-20 years.
Baking spice, marmalade and rich cherry pie layer the mouthfeel. Ripe fig, tobacco leaf, and a slightly smoked meat quality in the finish. Round and supple with velvety tannins. Good structure should reward aging over the next decade.
Dusty link pink color with orange hues shows off this rosés Provençal inspiration. A blend of Grenache and Mourvèdre provide complex floral notes of rose petal and jasmine and lead to crisp rush of citrusy grapefruit and cucumber water. Beautiful and balanced structure and mouth feel is held together by a wet stone like minerality. Serve really cold (45 F) to highlight this rosés zingy and palate satisfying acidity. Unlike many rosés, this wine will continue to evolve over the next 5 years.
The first vintage of Downbeat Chardonnay is sourced high up in the Mayacamas Mountains overlooking Napa Valley on Bald Mountain Ranch . This special vineyard produces a Chardonnay that is light and refreshing with notes of baked brioche, hazelnut, apple, nutmeg and vanilla. Lemon leads on the palate with warm apple pie and cream. A clean mineral finish of chalk and limestone leave a light impression and you wanting for more. Pairs perfectly with a bright salad, chicken, fatty fish or any nutty cheese.
The 2013 PATEL Coombsville Cabernet Sauvignon is one of two new AVA designated PATEL Cabernets to be released in Fall 2016. Sourced from the Bennett Vineyard, this inky purple wine is brimming with fruit. Notes of plum and cherry are balanced with bright acidity and the beautiful tannins linger in a long, luscious finish.
The 2013 PATEL Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon is one of two new AVA designated PATEL Cabernets to be released in Fall 2016. Expressive of the vintage and the vineyard, this wine is both powerful and elegant, with sweet tannins and hints of mocha.
Dark, powerful, and juicy, with terrific fruit intensity from start to finish. Black cherry, chocolate, plum, licorice, and spice infuse this pliant, super-expressive wine. The near-perfect 2016 growing season started early, saw ideal weather conditions throughout and wrapped up as the valley's first significant fall rainstorm arrived on October 14. Thanks to a relatively steady and mild July and August and then a series of warm days at the end of the growing season, vineyards were able to progress to perfect ripeness. Wines from the 2016 vintage are now quietly developing in cellars throughout Napa Valley and vintners are pinching themselves and smiling for the gift it appears Mother Nature has given them: a fifth consecutive vintage of stellar quality Napa Valley wines.
Stone fruits, flowers and black cherries, all of the things that make a farmer's market perfection for me live in this fine wine. Ethereal lightness with intensity, this wine pushes your imagination one way and then another. Is it Nureyev or is it Bruce Lee? Either way it is a combination of tightly wound power in an incredibly artistic wrapper. It glides with an elegance and grace across the palate
