April 2022 Club Release

 

A beloved favorite from an incredible vintage and two fantastic 2019 wines make this springtime shipment a true celebration!

 
 

2018 Frediani Petite Sirah, Calistoga

Our beloved Petite Sirah is the epitome of bold elegance. The impeccable 2018 vintage exemplifies a bouquet of licorice, black pepper, purple pansy flowers, and a hint of eucalyptus. Indulge in a velvety mouthfeel and a burst of mixed berry pie, black tea, and dark chocolate. The bold structure of this Petite Sirah makes it an ideal pairing for rich and fatty cuisines such as red meat, creamy cheeses, and herb-driven dishes.

 

 

 

 

2019 Frediani Zinfandel, Calistoga

This vintage of our Frediani Zinfandel yet again exemplifies an almost perfectly classic example of Napa Valley Zin. This wine has everything a Zinfandel-lover looks for: structure and body, pepper and spice, black fruit flavors and a bit of oak. Elegant and very fruit-forward you'll find the mouth explodes with flavors of blueberry jam, blackberry cobbler, and dark plum. Silky textures and a smooth finish round out this incredible wine.

 

 

 

 

2019 Evangelho Vineyard Red Wine Blend, Contra Costa County

This vintage evokes an old-world, European-style blend. Characteristics of earthiness, gravel, and dust harken back to the roots of this wine, allowing the qualities of this magical vineyard to really shine.  truly lets the vineyard shine. The balanced convergence of Mataro and Carignane offers up a delicate flavor profile with raspberry and blackberry undertones and a hint of well-integrated tannins. Finishing with a punch of acidity and a slight tartness, this wine is unique and complex.
