- Duckhorn “Paraduxx“ 2011, Napa Valley

- Franciscan “Magnificat” 2012, Napa Valley
Tasting Notes: Take in the rich flavors of plum, dried cherry, clove, cardamom, and cassis with hints of peppercorn and cocoa and take part in the smooth entry made possible with ripe berries and cherry. The seamlessness of this wine shows well-knit tannins woven into a supple and full palate.
- St. Supery “Elu” 2012, Napa Valley
Tasting Notes: Experience this opulent blend that presents with deep shades of reds and purples. Aromas of dark fruit, blackberry and black plum combine with elements of espresso, vanillin and molasses, as well as notes of smoky oak and dusty terroir. Flavors of dark plum and cassis follow with anise and toasted barrel attributes. This red blend offers a finely textured silky structure with density and a graceful appeal you won’t want to miss.
