Here's the Lineup,
Viognier 2017 $18
A combination of freshness and fruitiness; notes of citrus fruits like grapefruit and orange peel, and also exotic fruit like mango and some floral notes.
“Les Gardettes” Rose 2017 $12
Concentrated in both color and flavor, Les Gardettes delivers a healthy dose of French relaxation. Full of strawberry, peach, and other stone fruit flavors and supported by good acidity and freshness.
Cotes-Du-Rhone 2015 $16
The nose is full of intense red fruit – raspberries, cherries, and currants, with hints of pepper and violets. A suave mouth leads to a round finish of silky tannins. The floral aromas give an airy dimension.
Lirac Cuvee 2015 $21
Opens with an explosion of red berries. After aeration, the nose is more jammy with tuberose and licorice. The palate is ample with crunchy fruit. Dense, but fine, tannins give way to a long and silky finish.
“Baron Louis” Lirac 2014 $24
The nose is intense and complex revealing ripe cherry, black currant, and blackberry, leading to garrigue and pepper notes. The mouth feel remains elegant and even, with an extremely good balance.
“Baron de Montfaucon” Châteauneuf-du-Pape, 2015 $48
This wine, unique in its style, is all in finesse, fruit, flower, and elegance. It is a unique timeless wine for wine lovers, connoisseurs, and collectors.
