contains one bottle each:
2020 Little Secrets, Carbonic Gamay, El Dorado County, Barsotti Vineyard
Like passed love notes during spring bloom, this wine is full of Little Secrets, not meant to be unveiled. But we’ll make an exception with this bottle. Because we’re talking about carbonic macerated Gamay, Beaujolais Nouveau style. You heard that right. On the nose, experience rose petals, dried cherries, and Hawaiian Fruit Punch. On the palate, this wine is fresh as hell with notes of herbaceous membrillo, blood orange, juicy peach, and Hubba Bubba bubblegum. With bright acidity and a satin texture, this wine will enamor you.
2019 Eastside, Pinot Noir, El Dorado County
The first thing you’ll notice about this wine is its color. Like a freshly picked strawberry at the height of summer, this wine’s shimmery red hues are seriously captivating. On the nose, you’ll be enveloped by freshly blooming violets, rose petals and warm cherry pie. One sip will have you hooked because Eastside has it all. It’s like a bit of New York Cheesecake with macerated berries, a hint of butterscotch and a whisper of hazelnut. The granite soils of Snows Crossing Vineyard give the wine amazing minimality and we’d be lying if we said we didn’t want to drink this wine all damn day. With only 190 cases produced, we don’t expect this wine to be around for long.
2018 High Hopes, Red Wine, Russian River Valley
Medium in body with a sexy scarlet hue, we're really stoked with how pretty this wine looks. It smells even better with fresh herbalicious (it's a word, google it) aromas blooming out of the glass. In your mouth, it's all about the bright, exuberant red fruit with punchy flavors of cherry and raspberry joined by notes of rosemary and sage. This is a Pinot lover's Merlot blend and we're happy to drink this all day until they come to arrest us.
2018 American Hardcore, Red Wine, Napa Valley
In the glass, it’s definitely all about Petite Sirah: dark purple in color and abounding with blueberry and sugarplum aromas. The juice hits your mouth with ferocity, showcasing the powerful flavors and tannins we warned you about. Just oodles of blueberry, blackberry, dark chocolate, black tea, and a hint of black licorice and spice. The complementing grape varieties do a wonderful job supporting the power and tannins from the Petite Sirah with a round mouthfeel and tantalizing finish. It’s sooo good. For a food pairing, go equally big, with barbecued meats or stuffed peppers.
