contains two bottles each:
2019 Fifteen, Red Wine, California
Pale Ruby at the rim, Fifteen moves to a deep magenta color at its core. Wafts of brandied cherries, violets and cedar float from the glass enticing you to take a sip. Once you lift the glass to your lips, don't expect to put it down anytime soon. This wine is all about blueberry and blackberry jam on the palate, reminding us of those shortbread thumbprint cookies we used to eat around the holidays. The tannins ripple across your tongue like velvet, with a lingering finish that leaves you longing for another sip.
2019 Kid Vicious, Red Wine, Amador County
If you know us at all, you know we will seize any opportunity to celebrate the moments when people are brave enough to say “fuck that” and do something different. A silky blend of 69% Zinfandel, 13% Grenache, 12% Syrah, and 6% Petite Sirah, Kid Vicious is remarkably smooth and easy drinkin’ with an earthy edge. With notes of white pepper, candied cherries, violets, and sage, this wine is meaty enough to pair with pork or lamb and juicy enough to keep on sippin’ once you reach for dessert. Seriously...this wine and a slice of warm cherry pie pairs better than an ‘80s suburban punk and his trusty Thrasher mag.
2019 Make Money, Red Wine, Napa Valley
Waves of complex, enticing aromas of ripe raspberry and cherry, vanilla, and floral notes hit you like a first kiss. On the palate, there is a pure expression of fruit and power, with bold flavors of blackberry, black cherry, wrapped around mocha, cinnamon, and cedar. With sensual, silky smooth textures and integrated tannins, this opulent wine was literally made to encourage drinkers to make out.
California Gigolo, White Wine, California
A California blend of 60% Grüner Veltliner, 26% Roussanne, 8% Chenin Blanc, and 6% Grenache Blanc, we went for a quaffable, poundable (😘) style that just tastes yummy. Wads of gorgeous aromas of citrus and nectarine swirl out of the glass, unzipping the pants to delectable herbaceous flavors of grapefruit, lemongrass, and peach supported by notes of white pepper and dill. With incredible acidity, the juicy flavors practically explode in your mouth, and drip down your neck and chest (RECORD SCRATCH)... ok, maybe we took it too far.
2019 The Benefits of Solitude, Red Wine, California
Pale Garnet in color, the wine reminds us of the brick-red glow of a blood moon during a lunar eclipse. It makes sense that Big Sur is featured on the label, as wafts of forest floor, cedar and dried florals float from the glass. There is a hint of cinnamon, enveloped in ripe macerating strawberries that lure you into the glass for each sip. On the palate, it's all about dried cranberries, currants, orange peel and a sprinkle of Szechuan peppercorn. This wine is light and juicy in the best ways, with a beautiful tartness and clean finish. Low in tannins, we think this wine would be a great pairing to ramen bowls, mushroom toasts or white pizza.
2019 Hey, DJ, Save Us Tonight, Red Wine, California
This California red blend ain’t no sucka MC. 51% of our grapes were harvested from the beloved Sierra Foothills. The remaining 49% Syrah was plucked from Napa and whole-cluster fermented. The entire lot cozied up in neutral oak barrels, allowing those stellar cherry, stewed plum, and white pepper notes to shine. The result is a ruby red wine with crimson edges, lush tannins, and a finish as smooth as jazz. Hey DJ has bright acidity so do us a solid by pairing it with a winter soup, like minestrone. You jivin' yet?
