Contains one each:
2022 Crushed Hearts, Carbonic White Wine, Solano County
Every sip of Crushed Hearts is like a journey through time and space, a beautiful fusion of four grape varieties that bring together the best of their respective worlds. The label of Crushed Hearts comes from a cropped portion of a photo James took of some random street graffiti, layered with old torn posters in a back alley in Florence, Italy in 2019. The name of the wine, Crushed Hearts, was inspired by the pink heart-shaped image directly below the angel's face of sorrow. The label captures the spirit of street art, with its vibrant, creative, and ephemeral style.
2021 La Loba, Carbonic White Wine, El Dorado County
La Loba features an enchanting blend of 45% Chenin Blanc, 44% Petit Manseng, 10% Bianchetta Trevigiana, and 1% Orange Muscat sourced from the hills of El Dorado County. Mineral-rich deposits in the soils and a large diurnal swing create an electric acidity we just can't get enough of. There is something deeply familiar about this wine, with its enticing apricot, lemon curd and gentle florals on the nose. It reminds us of the edge of spring, with the harsh winter behind us and warm breezes carrying whiffs of jasmine through the air. Once it touches your lips, it's all white peach and creamy Meyer lemon, with vivacious acidity and minerality that'll have you reaching back for glass after glass.
