Save $4.00 (20%)
This is a rare and exceptional wine! Based on Cabernet Franc, red grapes with white juice, Blanc de Franc stems from first vinification. Incomparable juice, the winemaker decided to isolate it and turn it into white wine. It has a lovely pale yellow color. The nice and subtle bouquet is dominated by fruity (red fruit) aromas and white flowers. An abundance of fruit on the palate, with round and refreshing flavors.
Carne Humana Red 2012Petite Sirah, Zinfandel, Petit Verdot, Syrah. Deep scarlet with a slightly purplish-black core. Aromas of blackberry, dark chocolate, black licorice, ripe cherry, hints of black pepper and cured meat. On the palate there is a hint of sweet tobacco, maple, cherry pie filling, black licorice and an enlivened bright acidity on the entry that is quickly followed by rich, dark fruits, dried cranberry and sweet oak. A lingering finish.
Couly-Dutheil Les Chanteaux Blanc 2016A rare and unique Chenin Blanc with aromatic, soft and floral fruits. Dry and elegant, complex and rich. Chanteaux is a dry, round, vibrant wine with flowery aromas and a little melon, white pear, and pineapple on the palate. This wine is similar to its Loire cousin Vouvray but it has more weight and depth; it is a wonderful and unique expression of pure Chenin Blanc, and it is a wonderful and delicious break from Chardonnay.
Orin Swift Papillon 2015Avibrant crimson is present in the glass with a claret fringe on the rim. Luring aromas of currants, mulled blackberries, French vanilla, and exotic spices serve as an intriguing precursor to tasting. The opening is dense and powerful with extracted blue and red fruit flavors which leads to beguiling cassis, plum, and a hint of mocha later. The tannins are already so soft and suave which lends to early appeal and cellaring if one so chooses. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Malbec and Cabernet Franc.
Anew Wines Riesling 2012Opening with aromas of bright fruit, subtle spice and citrus, Anew Riesling offers a harmonious blend of pure fruit flavor, heightened aromatics and balanced acidity. Expressive flavors of fresh peach and a hint of spice give this wine a crisp, refreshing essence.

Lieb Pinot Blanc 2013The 2013 vintage is fermented entirely in stainless steel tanks to display the true varietal character featuring notes of lemongrass, lime zest, and rose petals.

AA Badenhorst Family Wines Secateurs Red Blend 2011The vineyards are very old bush-vines, planted on East, North and South facing slopes, bringing tremendous variety to the fruit. Most vines are un-irrigated mountain sloped bush-vines grown on a variety of granite soils that are naturally low yielding. All grapes are hand-picked, chilled overnight and then crushed into open concrete tanks for natural primary fermentation, which lasts around two weeks. The tanks are pigeaged (foot stomped, with clean feet, normally!) twice daily during this time. The finished wine is run off into old casks and concrete tanks which have a low impact on the natural wine aromas and structures. The vines are unirrigated and farmed as biologically as possible.
