2017 November Wine Club Picks

Italics White Blend – Napa Valley, CA – 2014 – Red/White Selection
This Napa Valley White Blend shines brilliantly in the glass with the color of pale yellow sapphire, tempting the nose with aromas of toasted pineapple and coconut and a hint of lychee. The wine’s rich mouthfeel vibrates with tart green apple, caramel and smoked almonds, finishing with wet stones and flint. A great wine for Thanksgiving.

Jonata Paring Red– Napa Valley, CA – 2013 – Red/White Selection
This is a blend with an utterly fascinating nose mixing lifted black fruit, savory green herbs and dark notes of grilled bread, espresso and anise. Fills the palate with bright red fruit and black plum. A constant play between sweet and savory. Gentle and dusty tannins lead the way into an incredibly long and precise finish. Mulberry sweetness and a wonderful tension between tannic structure and bright acidity. A study in elegance.

Ant Hills Farm Syrah – Sonoma, CA – 2015 –
There is no mistaking the dark berries and meaty aromas of Syrah on this wine. Syrah is responsible for some of the darkest full-bodied red wines in the world. It has dark fruit flavors from sweet blueberry to savory black olive. When you taste Syrah you’ll be greeted with a punch of flavor that tapers off and then has a spicy peppery note in the aftertaste.

Platinum Wine Club Picks

Italics Proprietary Red – Napa Valley, CA – 2014
This is our inaugural release of the 2014 Italics Proprietary Red as an everyday wine. It opens up beautifully with a nose full of red fruit- cherries cooked down for a pie-filling. The nose is sweet and fragrant. The fine-grain tannins give this wine paate length, but are subtle enough to let the fruit ride all the way to the end. This Bordeaux blend has a Merlot component, giving the wine some floral notes. It is round and full-bodied in the mouth, perfect for elevating your mood and relaxing at the end of the day.
