Product Description

The deep roots of Beaulieu Vineyard were first planted back in 1900, when founder Georges de Latour noticed similarities with his native Bordeaux and declared the Napa Valley ideal for winemaking. Planting vineyards in Rutherford with grafted, phylloxera-resistant French vines, the Cabernet Sauvignon that de Latour crafted from these grapes gave the world a taste of California's promise as a world-class winemaking region. In 1938, de Latour hired the young Russian-French enologist, Andre Tchelistcheff. Today, Beaulieu continues to turn to innovative practices. Most recently, they completed a new state-of-the-art winery within one of their original buildings. The Georges de Latour Private Reserve Winery utilizes the latest technology in combination with time-honored traditions for the production of this exceptional wine.

Beaulieu Vineyard Reserve Tapestry 2012 Reviews

"The impressive 2012 Reserve Tapestry, a blend of Bordeaux varietals, is more elegant and slightly less intense than the Private Reserve. It offers up sweet black cherry fruit notes intermixed with licorice, spice box and dusty, loamy soil undertones. Medium to full-bodied and deep with loads of ripe fruit, low acidity and sweet, velvety tannins, it can be enjoyed over the next decade." - 92, Wine Advocate

Beaulieu Vineyard Reserve Tapestry 2012 Tasting Notes

"Considered a superb vintage, the dry, sunny growing season gave our 2012 Reserve Tapestry its opulent, dark-fruit character and plush-textured mouthfeel while five Bordeaux-heritage varietals contributed layer-upon-layer of flavor complexity. This is a wine that shows the artistry of the winemaker. Jeffrey chose Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot for the wine's core briary blackberry and cassis expression and its plush mid-palate structure. He then added Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec to complete the blend with nuances of ripe plum, rose forest loam and graphite." - Winery Notes

WOW: New Year's Eve 2015...Just 10 days away!

WOW: Wine of the Week

New Year's Eve 2015...Just 10 days away!
Roederer Estate Cristal Brut 2004
This Cava is awarded five "stars" in our eyes!  There IS still time to get your New Year's Eve Bubbles!  But do NOT wait any longer!  This is the crowd-pleasing, budget-pleasing bubbly you have been waiting to see!  And what could be better than an amazing story to share about it...

"Since 1987, every summer Castillo Perelada hosts one of the most prestigious music festivals in Europe. This cava is a tribute to all the artists who year after year honour us with their presence, shining like the stars of the Empordà sky under which they perform.
Wine has been made at the Perelada since the Middle Ages, as shown in several documents and parchments from the period to be found in the library. When Miguel Mateu bought this ensemble of monuments in 1923, one of his primary objectives was to revitalize the wine producing tradition, a tradition that is more alive than ever these days and which has incorporated the most modern technology to create wines that make full use of the nuances of the soils and vines of the Empordà." - Winery Notes

Castillo Perelada Cava "Stars" Brut Nature N/V Tasting Notes

Pale yellow colour, crystalline and bright. Its generous stream of fine bubbles forms a perfect crown. In the nose it is clean, with fruity notes, and some slight ageing notes. Dry, smooth and complex in the mouth, it has a great tasting balance.

Product Description

"Chandon has been a pioneer of Blanc de Noirs style, which primarily uses the red grape variety Pinot Noir to make a white wine. This Limited Edition bottling showcases our Blanc de Noirs, a fruit-driven and full-flavored blend that has become one of our most popular sparkling wines." - Winery Notes

Domaine Chandon Blanc de Noirs Holiday Limited Edition 2015 - 750ml Tasting Notes

Chandon Blanc de Noirs hints at a light copper hue. Strawberry, currant and cherry dominate both aroma and flavor with hints of cassis and cocoa. These red fruit flavors build in the mid-palate and finish with a firm structure and lingering satiny texture.

Domaine Chandon Blanc de Noirs Holiday Limited Edition 2015 - 750ml Pairings

Blanc de Noirs is a versatile wine, making a great match with everything from fruity to spicy to salty foods found in Southwestern, Latin American, Mexican and Asian cuisines. Since this wine is mostly Pinot Noir, you can enjoy it with pork, mushrooms, roasted beets and salmon.
