JORDAN CABERNET SAUVIGNON – earning a score of 92 points from Wine Enthusiast, this wine is remarkable for its structure and gracefulness with concentrated flavors of blackberries and cassis interwoven seamlessly with fine tannins from new French oak barrels that’s harnessed by a beautiful balance of acidity and dark fruits with a long, cassis-laced finish.
JORDAN CHARDONNAY – earning a score of 91 points from Wine Enthusiast, Spicy nutmeg meets a reckoning of Meyer lemon zest, stone fruits and grapefruit pith in this light, bright, elegant white that’s subtle in oak. Notions of just-ripe pear follow the wine’s elegant balance, creamy mouthfeel and subtle oak nuances.
ROEDERER ESTATE BRUT – the first California sparkling wine produced by Champagne Louis Roederer, builds upon a 200-year tradition of fine winemaking that has made Roederer champagne among the most sought-after in the world. Aged from one to three years, wines from this reserve cellar are added to the blend, creating a multi-vintage cuvee in the traditional Roederer style.
CHERRY PIE 3 VINEYARDS PINOT NOIR – Silky and delicate up front, this fruit-forward wine is a soft red with ripe acidity framing the rich, sweet flavors of red berries, raspberries, light smokiness, and a finish with red cherry and earth.
DUCKHORN PARADUXX RED – earning a score of 93 points from James Suckling, this is a beautiful example of how well Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel, with an accent of Merlot, can meld together into a complete and delicious wine. On the palate, juicy layers of brambleberry, black cherry, and nectarine are supported by firm, yet refined tannins and impressive weight. Excellent structure from the Cabernet draws this wine to a full, rich finish.
KING ESTATE PINOT GRIS – earning a score of 91 points from Wine Enthusiast, this supple wine exudes flavors of fresh cut pear, pineapple and key lime with a striking balance of ripe fruit and fresh acidity and a subtle hint of minerality that provides a lengthy clean finish.
