Jonata Cab Franc El Alma 2011 Jonata Cab Franc El Alma 2011 $128.00

What? A $128 Cab Franc? So what if Parker gave it a 96. Then I tasted this remarkable creature. Soft violets and herbs on the nose wrapped in dark cocoa, tobacco, and some dark currant. Big yet elegant flavors of plum and black cherry. I've never had Cab Franc this muscular yet refined. The alcohol and oak try for a moment to get in the way but with just a few minutes it's all amazing Cab Franc.

  • Maimai Syrah

    Maimai Syrah

    So pretty. Brings a clear nose of Gimblett Gravels terroir beneath lush soft blue and black fruit with lovely violet and lavender notes. Palate is clean, balanced and very approachable. Just a hint of the Northern Rhone's meatiness but mostly bright fruit and enough acidity to hold it in check. Maybe the best NZ Syrah out there??

  • Obsidian Cab

    Obsidian Cab

    A wonderful classic CA Cab with solid structure from the altitude and Hungarian oak. Reserved and dark on the nose with aromas of blackberries, hints of black licorice and coffee. Really nice and elegant. Touch on the masculine side with no jammy, jelly jar junk here. Wonderfully different.

  • Gewurz

    A CA Gewurztraminer crafted in the style of those from the Alps. Great crisp minerality, rose petal and lychee notes, with bright acidity to hold it together. All organic from the rugged and cooler Potter Valley in Mendocino. Try with grilled chicken or pork chops to see what a great food wine this is!
