Hillside Select Stags Leap District Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

Hillside Select is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon and aged 32 months in 100% new 60-gallon French oak barrels. Deep Ruby with pronounced aromas of red/black fruits, with hints of cedar, floral, oak, herbs & spice. On the palate flavors of concentrated ripe blackberry, cherry and raspberry preserves, pepper spice, leather and earthy cacao. Fine savory tannins, well balanced, long finish, great structure ending with fruit, spice, oak and earthy mineral character. Outstanding! — 6 days ago

Les Chailloux Sancerre Sauvignon Blanc 2019

2019 vintage " Les Chailloux". You can't go wrong with these guys. On 59 hectares of biodynamically farmed vineyards they make 11 different white Sancerres, 10 from single vineyards and 1 blend. All wines are vinified in the same way, so this estate is like a candy store for wine lovers eager to try to understand the different terroirs in Sancerre. Les Chailloux is a hillside parcel oriented to the west with a clay and silex soil upon chalk. Citrus fruit combined with an intense minerality and floral notes. Bright mouthwatering fruit and acidity with a long almondy finish. Highly recommended. Abv. 13,5%. P — 13 days ago
