Bordeaux

5125 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.

2006 Sonoma Valley Red Wine "les Vestiges"
Sonoma Valley

A Right Bank Bordeaux blend of 50% Merlot, 21% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Cabernet Franc, and 13% Petit Verdot from a vineyard we designed, planted, established, and farmed over sever ...moreal years at the northern tip of the Sonoma Valley. The young vineyard has given a wine with a relatively robust 14% alcohol, while the pH (3.79) and acidity (.60 g/100mL) provide a crisp counterbalance and, together with the powder-fine tannins, contribute to the seamless and sophisticated mouthfeel. Clean, pure, and serious, the wine is rounded out by 50% tight-grain new French Oak from a selection of coopers and barrel aged for 17 months. Aromatically, black tea, sage, citrus blossom, confiture cerises, brioche, honeysuckle, and allspice are evident. On the palate, an expansive entry evolves to a round and balanced texture with flavors on the border between the red and black fruit spectrums exhibiting black cherry, red currants, and plum notes. The finish is creamy and clean at the same time, with the mid palate flavors persisting and becoming more intertwined with the light vanilla and pain grillé notes, all lingering for a long, fine, finish.

2002 Archipel
Sonoma County

The 2002 vintage represents a blend of hand-picked, hand-sorted Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc fruit. Vibrant blackberry and black cherry fruit accompany a whisper ...moreof vanilla and a hint of smoke like that from an open fire. The lush, almost sensual mouthfeel is followed by a long, evolving finish.

2003 Odyssey
St. Helena

We call this wine ODYSSEY because each vintage takes us on a journey to blend the finest fruit from our Odyssey Vineyard located 1,350 feet above the valley floor.

The 2 ...more003 is comprised of 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Cabernet Franc, 29% Merlot, and 1% Syrah. It is blended to express the essence of our vineyards on Atlas Peak. The texture is rich, giving a wonderful “mouth feel.” While not one of the varietals dominates the flavor, one still has the impression of Napa Valley Cabernet. There are “layers” of flavors, with black cherry predominating while nuances of white pepper, chocolate and cinnamon are present. This is a great example of the winemaker’s “art” of blending varietals to make the sum add up to more than the “parts.” While very approachable now, we believe this wine will easily age for 8 to 10 years with its tannin structure.

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 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.

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.

Its big ...moreflavors are assembled from old-vine blocks of Bordeaux varietals that have the personality and panache to personify Fred Furth's vision of "the best that my home estate can produce."



Produced only in exceptional years, and in minute quantities, no expense is spared in its creation. Starting with intensive care in the vineyards- handcrafting in the winery, special cooperage, extended barrel age, even its sturdy, eponymous bottle- all are steps in the creative process designed to focus the fruit into a broad, expansive, weighty wine worthy of the name.
