Bordeaux

8168 visitors
Red Bordeaux, which is traditionally known as claret in the United Kingdom, is generally made from a blend of grapes. Permitted grapes are Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Malbec, and Carmenere. Today Malbec is very seldom used, and Carmenere is used in tiny quantities. An example of a famous château that uses Carmenere is Château Clerc Milon, a fifth growth Bordeaux.

White Bordeaux, including the sweet Sauternes, is made from Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon, and Muscadelle.

2005 BeauSierra Bordeaux Style Red
Sonoma County, Dry Creek Valley

A French styled "vin de pays" table wine for every day dining. Vin de Pays is regarded as a superior table wine produced from local grapes of a specific area.

Thre ...moree bordeaux varietals and one rhone make up this co-fermented blend. Cabernet Sauvignon is the backbone of this wine with Cabernet Franc, Petitie Verdot & Carignane. Aged in small older oak barrels for 18 months to promote the mixed bright fruit flavors without the overtone of oak. An old world styled wine with moderate alcohol. A perfect food wine for a variety of dishes. No wonder the French are so healthy and trim!

2002 Allusion

A Bordeaux-blend of 50 percent cabernet franc, 25 percent cabernet sauvignon, and 25 percent merlot. Gobs of red and black fruit combine to make this a deep, intriguing wine. Licor ...moreice, cedar, black currants and spicy oak. Exuberance with plenty of depth, richness, and subtle complexity make this wine a "best buy". Putting on weight in the bottle and taking on an elegantly pretty velvety texture. This wine has at least a 10 to 15 year life ahead of it. We are now into our last pallet of this wine so if you want it, don't delay.

This wine was meticulously crafted using selected individual barrels that exhibited the highest quality and attribute, which were then blended to create a ni ...morece balance of oak, fruit, tannins and acid. Showing wild berries and black cherries up front, this wine has good tannins carrying through, with mocha chocolate and oak tannins lingering into a well-balanced and clean finish. This wine will cellar nicely for the next 5-8 years. Only 117 cases produced

2003 Trifecta
Napa County

Our third Trifecta is also off to a great start! 2003 gave the grapes a long time to ripen while keeping sugars in check and acidity in balance.
A swirl of this deep garnet ...more wine relases elegant aromas of spicy berries, leather and sweet alcohol. The palate is bright with youthful acidity, highlighting flavors of blackberry, black cherry, cocoa with a generous amount of toasted coconut contributed by the American and French oak. Tannins are grippy and the finish is amazing.
This is a wine you'll want to have stashed in your cellar, to savor over the next 5 to 12 years to come. If you can't wait that long, enjoy it tonight with grilled steaks, spice-rubbed chicken and rosemary roasted lamb. A votr Sante!

2005 Artistry Proprietary Blend
Napa Valley

Our 2005 Artistry is a proprietary blend of 5 Bordeaux-varietal grapes. The varietals and percentages will change from year to year, with a goal of keeping the wine consistent in q ...moreuality and style. The 2005 vintage is a brilliantly-colored, dark garnet wine with aromas of baked cherries, dark plum, lavender, cinnamon, allspice and freshly cut herbs. There are also hints of tobacco, leather and toasted pecan. On the palate, this smooth-textured wine offers a full-mouth, medium bodied feel. The firm tannins are very well integrated, making the wine elegant and approachable at an early age. There are multiple layers to this complex blend that reveal themselves through decanting or by giving the wine time to open up in the glass.

2004 SAGE
Paso Robles

This Bordeaux blend is unique! A blend of 50% Malbec/50% Petit Verdot, most wineries wouldn’t dare put these two varietals together without some percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon or ...more Merlot because of the high tannic structure. But we thought differently. Hints of raisins, plum, and tobacco from the Malbec paired with blackcurrants and the lovely scent of violets from the Petit Verdot make this wine both great to drink now or in 15 years.

2005 Sorridente
St. Helena

Sorridente means smile in Italian, and it is our hope that this delicious blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Aglianico will make your day a little brighter and cause you to sm ...moreile. The 2005 Sorridente is a big wine that has great aging potential. The deep purple hue is consistent with the blackberry, plum nose. There are notes of cocoa powder and rose petal and a definitive "Italianesque" bouquet that makes itself more apparent after the wine opens in the glass. It is an excellent pair with substantial dishes such as rack of lamb, veal shank and aged, hard cheeses. Enjoy at joyous occasions both grand and humble.
