2016 CABERNET SAUVIGNON
Compare Grapes native to French Bordeaux Left and Right Banks with Right Bank Merlot and Cheval d'Acier and Left Bank Cabernet Sauvignon.
2015 MERLOT, Alexander Valley (Sonoma) $34
Elegant. Structured. Ages beautifully. This is merlot at its best, offering rich berry fruit, round tannins, and lingering complexity. Pair with roasted meats: beef, veal, or lamb, particularly when cooked with thyme or rosemary. Gold medal, 2020 San Francisco Chronicle competition.
2016 CHEVAL D'ACIER, Alexander Valley (Sonoma) $38
The highly regarded wines of Bordeaux's Right Bank are blends of Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and Petit Verdot. Our salute to the Estuary's right bank--and Oakland's cranes or "steel horses"--celebrates the savory side of California fruit.
2016 CABERNET SAUVIGNON, Sonoma $38
We Love our Cabs in a classic style with rich fruit and elegant structure. Sonoma County's vineyards are wonderful locations for growing grapes in just that style. Pair with a juicy prime rib, peppercorn filet of beef, or even a burger.
