Bold nose of raspberry, blueberry and tart ripe cherry acidity. The palate is fruit forward and slightly jammy, with peppery notes and a light, tannic finish with some woody flavors, and notes of tar. — 6 days ago
While Mumm occupies one of the most iconic sites in Champagne, Moulin de Verzenay, it’s just not popular in the U.S., so it’s easy to dismiss Mumm Napa as a cheap supermarket brand. Well I’m glad I tried this.
While this PN dominated Rose lacks the refinement of a Champagne, the abundance of fresh fruits such as cherry, strawberry, watermelon, grapefruit, and citrus make this a joy to drink. Crisp, energetic, and dry, this is so good for under $20. — 2 months ago

Grgich Hills Estate Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2014: Big fruit. Bold taste. Smooth finish. A great representation of a California Cabernet (containing all the characteristics of Napa) from an iconic winery from California’s premier wine region! Cheers🍷 — 6 months ago
Yellow apple aromas, classic Chardonnay. A bigger body without being too creamy and enough acid to balance. Get to Know Chardonnay Class. — a month ago
With a flavor and complexity equivalent to any French grand cru, this is a fantastic Chardonnay. The nose is slightly funky with a mineral driven undercurrent and notes of star fruit, asian pear, apricot and wet rocks, but the flavor is BOLD, with a front of fruit forward acidity, with a creamy mid-palate and a lingering, slightly mineral finish. Everything that comes out of the Michael Mara Vineyard is spectacular, and this is not exception. Like liquid gold! — 2 months ago

Kitá, red blend, Santa Ynez Valley, CA, Vintage 2014, ABV 13.5%. The blend is comprised of 48% Merlot, 38% Cabernet Franc, 9% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 5% Petit Verdot. @kitawines
👁 It had a beautiful purple hue and vibrant notes of black cherry, blackberry, black currant, plum, violets, cedar, nutmeg, vanilla, leather, and tobacco. 👃 👄
I loved learning about the background on this wine and winemaker Tara Gomez, who studied enology with financial help from her tribe, the Santa Ynez Band of Chumash Indians. 💕 Tara has worked with iconic figures in the California wine world — such as Fess Parker and J. Lohr— and has traveled the world, honing her own unique style of winemaking that blends the best of old world and new world techniques. 👏👏👏 @tgomez805
This red blend is made of grapes grown on the Camp 4 Vineyard, purchased by the Santa Ynez Band of Chumash Indians in 2010, when Tara was hired as head winemaker. 🍇🍇 The land was previously cultivated by Fess Parker, who had an influence on Tara’s budding career while interning at Fess Parker Winery during her enology studies.
The word "Kitá" means "Our Valley Oak" in the Santa Ynez Chumash native language of Samala. The wine is speaks to “place” and respect for the land from which it is cultivated. 🌎 🌳 Yields and production are kept small to promote sustainable growing practices and the grapes are harvested by hand and vinified with minimal intervention. — 6 days ago
