2017 Blackbird Vineyards ‘Dissonance’ Sauvignon Blanc$22.00Tasting Notes Blackbird winery and vineyards is considered to be one of the ultra premium producers within Napa Valley.

Only 60 barrels produced.
2014 Robert Sinskey Vineyards ‘POV’$42.00Tasting Notes Like striking a major chord, the three varieties of Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon, harmonize brilliantly - like they were always meant to be together. The wine opens with floral aromas of violet and rosemary, followed by a fruit stand of aromas and flavors reminiscent of blackberry, black plum, currant and black cherry. The primary fruit notes lead into more complex and earthier notes of black olive, sage, star anise, cocoa and a hint of vanilla that softens an otherwise youthful flavor profile.
2015 Vine Cliff ‘Proprietress Reserve’ Chardonnay$70.00Tasting Notes Intense aroma that is filled with notes of preserved lemon, baked apple, and hints of honeysuckle. Toasted almond and vanilla add dimension. On the palate, lemon cream, toasted brioche, and butterscotch leave a long and lingering finish. The mouthfeel is rich and full bodied yet is balanced with acidity and freshness.
