Visit with the Wine Reps, Bottle & Case Sales, & Enjoy Special Flights of:
Knotty Vines 2019 Pinot Noir
A darker, more sumptuous take on Pinot Noir, this wine retains its careful complexity while dripping with richness and flavors of black cherry, vanilla and oak and culminating in a smooth and lingering berry-laden finish.
Knotty Vines 2019 Red Blend
The indulgent confluence of Merlot, Malbec, Zinfandel and Petit Verdot results in a velvety blend of ripe plum, coffee, black cherry and chocolate flavors with a smooth rich finish.
Rodney Strong 2018 Alexander Valley Cabernet
This powerful Cabernet Sauvignon from the hillsides of Alexander Valley has aromas of lush, red plum and dark berries that dominate the glass, while hints of cassis and milk chocolate play in the background. The dried fig and chewy tannins give this wine a strong backbone, while the 24 months of barrel aging have softened this bold wine just enough to enjoy now with a cheese and charcuterie board, filet mignon with grilled vegetables or a dark chocolate mousse. Drink over the next 5 to 7 years.
Rodney Strong 2016 Symmetry
The 2017 vintage will not be soon forgotten. The all-time precipitation record was set by mid-April as rain swept like waves over the North Coast, filling all the lakes, ponds and reservoirs. As the rain clouds subsided and the sun appeared, the vineyards in Sonoma County endured six different heat waves at or above 100F including a memorable 110F on Labor Day. We harvested the fruit from September 16th – October 13th to make this beautiful red wine.
Rodney Strong 2021 Charlotte’s Home Sauvignon Blanc Fresh, bright and crisp, this Sauvignon Blanc is a wine of balance, richness and aromatic complexity. Leading with zesty citrus notes of grapefruit, Meyer lemon and a light grassiness, this wine gives way to more tropical fruit and melon characteristics. This classic Sonoma County style Sauvignon Blanc ends with clean, refreshing acidity and pairs beautifully with toasted brie, seared scallops, oysters with mignonette and fresh pasta with sweet peas and a lemon cream sauce.
