Cakebread Cellars 2015 Chardonnay$45One sniff and sip of our 2015 Napa Valley Chardonnay is all that’s required to recognize the exceptional quality of this fine wine. The nose offers vivid, creamy aromas of green and golden apple, pear and citrus with supporting scents of beeswax and mineral. Full-bodied and vibrant on the palate, with bright, intense, apple, citrus and melon flavors, our 2015 Napa Valley Chardonnay is remarkably persistent on the palate, culminating in a long finish showcasing pleasing spice, yeast and mineral tones. Released soon after bottling, it will hit its stride after 6-8 months and reward 5-7 years’ aging.

Caymus Vineyards 2013 Zinfandel$45"My dad Charlie Wagner always loved a good Zinfandel, which is why we still make a small amount that we only sell here at the winery and export to a few select countries. It is also a varietal that we can do amazing things with here in the Napa Valley, and we like to showcase our own distinct style of this quintessential California classic."

Caymus Vineyards 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon (1 liter)$150The 2013 growing season was another great one in Napa Valley. Deep, red and opulent in color, this wine opens with the vibrant scent of dark cherry and blackberry, subtly layered with warm notes of vanilla. The palate is explosive, bright, balanced – cassis at the center, with flourishes of cocoa and sweet tobacco that provide nuance and continually shifting points of interest. Velvety meshed tannins make this wine lush yet structured, with a texture that grabs attention, expands and unfolds. Fruit, oak and acidity are held in balance throughout the long, drawn-out finish.
