New Offering Archives


The gift packs I created for our wine catalog and holiday catalogs a few months ago are selling like hotcakes this week! It's pretty incredible what happens when you include 3 GREAT wine offerings with special pricing and pack them together to give to friends, colleagues, family. I mean it when I tell people that we make them look great when they give these as gifts. If you haven't seen them yet, click on this link.

In the spirit of the week before Christmas, I've brought in a few small allocations of the following wines with special holiday pricing if you select six solid or mixed bottles or more. They're too limited to put on our website but call us in the Napa Valley and we'll secure your order. 888.888.1343


CABERNET SAUVIGNON/ CAB BLENDS

O'Shaughnessy, Mt. Veeder, Cabernet Sauvignon 2007 - This is O'Shaughnessy's newer Cab from their vineyard on Mt. Veeder but is already giving the Howell Mountain Cab a run for its money with incredible texture and nuance. Intense cab with great delivery.

Harris Estate, Jake's Creek, Cabernet Sauvignon 2007 - Harris Estate is now under the guidance of one of my favorite winemakers in Napa- Thomas Rivers Brown (Outpost, Schrader, Maybach among a few others).This is the first vintage that Thomas played a role in the final blending.

COHO Headwaters Red 2008 This vintage is a blend of 62% Cab, 29% Merlot, 5% Cab Franc and 4% PV. The fruit comes from the Coombsville AVA (Buccella, Merus, Realm source from here) with a small percentage from Diamond Mtn to give it added depth. GREAT for the price. Intense, supply and nice, long finish

PINOT NOIR
Williams Selyem Russian River Valley Pinot Noir 2008
Williams Selyem Central Coast Pinot Noir 2008
Williams Selyem Westside Road Neighbors Pinot Noir 2008


COHO RRV Pinot Noir 2008All 3 of these offerings are great and Gary Lipp, the owner, has priced all offerings very reasonably for the quality in the bottle. Gary learned from Paul Hobbs while working as his assistant winemaker at Paul Hobbs Winery. The '08 RRV Pinot is even better than the '07. Dense and fuller bodied than some RRV pinots.


Wishing you a very happy holiday season
and let me know if there's anything we can do to help!
