83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Petit Sirah, 3% Syrah
Brimming with aromas of wild cherry and lavender, our Bordeaux style blend is named for our winery dog Chloe. With a rich midpalate and chewy tannins on the finish this is a delicious fruit forward wine that would pair wonderfully with spare ribs
SINGLE-VINEYARD CHARDONNAY. This age-worthy "collectors' Chardonnay" hails from the small, cherished Sangiacomo Vineyard not far from the town square in Sonoma in the Carneros District in the cool south end of Napa & Sonoma valleys. Acquired by Nils with our faithful Posse wine club shipments in mind, and produced with the utmost attention, this full-bodied Chardonnay is a perfect companion for those special occasions and the Chardonnay connoisseur.
No Jam in Sight! 100% Malbec! Here is a rare, prized find from a hillside in Yountville out of the Mello Vineyard: perfectly handcrafted Napa Valley Malbec.
83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Petite Sirah, 7% Syrah
Dense in the glass, rustic aromas of peak-season cherries and pipe tobacco reinforce the wine’s rich approach. Layers of flavor include ripened country-roadside blackberries and cherries, and are softened by a finish of vanilla and graphite from nicely balanced tannins. Fruit-forward and bold. Pairs wonderfully with hard cheeses, bacon-wrapped pork loin, grilled corn, barbecued meats.
"Douce noir," or "sweet black" is the Italian name for this varietal and that moniker is quite apt! A gorgeous sanguine in color, this cult classic is quite masculine in its body, with an abundance of anise and black cherry in its broad palate. Sourced from the warmer Napa Valley climes of Calistoga, Charbono is nicely paired with charred meats, which stands to reason why Argentinians are the other notable country to grow it.
Currently in wide release! Rare Napa Valley-grown Sangiovese is a light to medium-bodied stunner and a local favorite, growing right around the corner from Saddleback's Oakville estate. Aromas of cherries, pomegranate on the palate balanced by black olive and espresso, and a seriously creamy finish. Complements all varieties of picnic fare, lush Italian red sauces and warming temps.
