  3. Paitin Langhe Nebbiolo "Starda" 2018

    Paitin Langhe Nebbiolo "Starda" 2018

    Here in the heart of Napa, we’re finding it very hard to resist becoming a wine shop specialising in Nebbiolo. But it’s hard when there’s so much good wine being made, especially when it’s such good value as this one. Anyone we’ve tasted blind on this wine has guessed it to be priced at $40-50, but it’s half the price. It’s everything you want and expect from Nebbiolo – pretty and floral with aromas of red fruits, tar, and perfume, with a superb tannic/acidic structure. Learn More

    Mauritson Dry Creek Zinfandel 2017

    The Mauritson family has been farming in Dry Creek since 1868 and the family has a wealth of knowledge about the intricacies of growing Zinfandel. Don’t get them started about homogeneous ripening! The wine exudes mocha and blackberry notes that border on pie filling, yet it’s complimented by earthy notes of herbs, black pepper and fig. A dollop of 5% Petite Sirah gives the wine a little backbone and depth. A perfectly balanced Zinfandel. Learn More

Light by red wine standards, strong by Gamay standards. Pretty but serious, with fresh, juicy aromas of raspberries, blackberries, pomegranates, peppercorns, roses, and dried herbs. Learn More
