Etoile Tete de Cuvve 2003 by Domaine Chandon
This seductive bubbly is guaranteed to set the mood. Honey, dried apricot and lightly toasted hazelnut aromas mingle with notes of citrus blossoms and lemon curd. On the palate there are distinctive honey and dried apricot flavors that broaden to reveal nectarine and candied ginger all wrapped in a texture that is defined by elegance and refined complexity. To sweeten the deal the bottle is absolutely gorgeous.
Define Rose by Define Wines
If you are familiar with the NPT family you will know why we whole heartedly endorse this wine as one of the most romantic of the pinks. Five barrel lot of Exotic Red Rosé from whole cluster Napa Valley Pinot Noir grapes. Partial carbonic maceration prior to press was conducted for a slight Beaujolais styled bouquet. Fermented in French Oak barrels & stirred sur lie for 6 months. Cold stabilized in stainless steel & packaged in ½ size bottles. The young winemaker David James continues to redefine the Rosé market with another elegantly expressive ultra-premium Rosé.
THE JUDGE 2012 NAPA VALLEY
For lovers of superior whites you don’t want to miss this beauty. This is a by membership only wine but we do hope you have it in your wine collection. This beauty is nothing short of astonishing. After tasting it from barrel a year ago Parker declared, “This is one of the greatest young Chardonnays I have ever tasted.” All the forces of nature aligned for our six-acre rock pile to produce one of its most profound and concentrated expressions. Here you find nutmeg, cinnamon, and anise aromas, typical of The Judge, setting you up for the incredibly dense yet lively finish. We planted this vineyard 40 years ago with John’s father, the Judge. The gnarly vines long ago settled into their shy-bearing, self-regulating groove, producing around one ton per acre of Chardonnay like no other. 300 cases produced.
