Jack Daniels Legacy Edition 2
 
Turns out, Jack looked best dressed in black. Just like the name ‘Old No. 7,’ the history of our label is a bit of a mystery. Some say we chose the color to mourn Mr. Jack’s death; others don't think we chose it for any reason at all. We may never know for sure, but we are certain this label was one of the very first times it was predominantly black. 
 
Our second bottling in the Jack Daniel's Legacy Edition Series is a return to one of the first instances of Jack's iconic black label. It's a symbol of our enduring spirit, an ode to Mr. Jack's color of choice and, well, just a good bottle of whiskey. So enjoy a sip or two of Jack Daniel's history.

Bees Box Pinot Noir
California

Born out of our commitment to sustainability
Nuances of cloves & dark roasted coffee

From The Coppola Family.

" The Bee’s Box story began with a bee that grew to a swarm. Unsure of what to do with a swarm of bees on a property full of guests, we did what anyone would do – we Googled it. And so, with a brand new bee suit, a Youtube video, and a glass of wine, we set out to create our own bee’s box on the property to keep everyone safe – not least of all, the little pollinators who chose us as their home. As we became more attached to our little friends, we also became more aware of their plight (habitat loss, disease, and overuse of pesticides). Already passionate about all aspects of sustainability, we wanted to do something to help protect them. And so, Bee’s Box Wine was born. Great wines that give back 10% of the profits to organizations fighting to protect these little pollinators who have sustained us for so very long. So let’s fight the good fight together, glass of wine in hand, and say cheers to good food, fine wine, and our beautiful little pollinator friends."

Tasting Notes:
From its vibrant fragrance of cranberries, black cherries, nutmeg, vanilla, and oak to its racy palate that opens with red raspberries and plums, the silky flavors carry through to the mid-palate and finish with delicate nuances of cloves and dark roasted coffee.

Belle Glos Pinot Noir Las Alturas
California

“Belle Glos showcases, under one label, the distinctive Pinot Noirs we produce from top growing areas in California. My family made Pinot Noir from Napa Valley grapes from 1972 until 1990.  Those were good wines, but they were not what we were looking for in Pinot Noir. So we began a search for cool, coastal locations more suited to growing this subtle, elegant grape.

In the winery, we make ongoing decisions about each small wine lot, based upon tasting each lot over and over to see what it requires: cold soak versus no cold soak, one yeast strain versus another, punch-down versus pump-over during fermentation, and the type of French oak barrel to use for aging. We can emphasize different characteristics in a wine based on these decisions.

When it is time to make the final blend, each barrel of wine has its own identity. Integrating these layers of flavors in each single-vineyard wine—created by choices made over a number of years in the vineyard and months in the winery—is a job I’m proud to do."
– Joseph Wagner, Owner/Winemaker


Belle Glos Las Alturas Pinot Noir


Deep garnet in color with an aromatic medley of black cherry, marionberry, ripe plum and a hint of anise. Dark fruit on the palate with flavors of wild berries, caramelized oak and cacao nibs complemented by subtle notes of vanilla, cedar and a hint of lavender and forest floor. Rich and unrestrained, this wine’s abundant fruit is beautifully balanced by firm acidity and layers of red and black fruit.

Four Virtues Cabernet Bourbon Barrel
Lodi, California


A renowned wine writer said the best wines must exhibit four virtues: a distinctive style and quality unlike any other; a unique expression of origin (terroir); an intense but not overpowering flavor; and satisfying to the palate and intellect- in other words, be a wine worth talking about! Four Virtues winemaking team has passionately crafted this debut vintage with these virtues in mind.

The Spirited Flavor of Bourbon Oak Aging
Heavily charred new Bourbon oak barrels impart nuanced layers of caramel, vanilla and toasty oak to the wine’s naturally intense dark berry character. The result is a robust, deliciously complex and silky smooth Lodi Cabernet Sauvignon.

An intense, full-bodied wine with flavors of dark berries, sweet oak and spice. A smoky finish with firm, yet refined tannins.
Vibrant aromas of blackberry, cherry and dark chocolate, with notes of cinnamon, roasted coffee beans and toasty oak.
Lodi Appellation
Aged with French and American oak, then finished in heavily charred new American oak Bourbon barrels 1-3 months.

Four Virtues Zinfandel Bourbon Barrel
Lodi, California


Heavily charred new Bourbon oak barrels impart nuanced layers of caramel, vanilla, and toasty oak to the wine’s naturally intense dark berry character. The result is a robust, deliciously complex, and silky smooth Lodi Zinfandel.

The wine is intense and full-bodied with red fruit, blackberry, and spice. Soft, subtle tannins and a lingering smoky finish. Bright raspberry, cherry, and juicy blackberry with hints of caramel, vanilla, and toasty oak.




Buck Shack Cabernet Sauvignon Bourbon Barrel
California

This Cabernet Sauvignon is produced in high elevation vineyards, and then aged for 5 months in freshly emptied bourbon barrels. The result is a velvety, rich Cabernet. The bourbon infused American oak flawlessly marries with the smooth tones of black currant and tobacco.

The Palm by Whispering Angel
Provence, France

Broc Cellars Love Rosé
California

Varietals:  80% Valdiguié, 14% Zinfandel, 6% Trousseau
Vineyards: Solano Vineyard (Valdiguié), Arrowhead Mountain (Zinfandel), Wirth Vineyard (Trousseau). 
Location: Suisun Valley


Winemaker's Notes:  The fruit was destemmed, then pressed into stainless steel. All 3 varietals fermented together just over 30 days. The wine was bottled at the beginning of the year. High aromatics with juicy watermelon and grapefruit notes. Spice comes from the Zinfandel, acidity from the Valdiguié and texture from the Trousseau.

Suisun Valley is located just east of Napa Valley. Both the Solano and Wirth Vineyard vines grow on sandy loam. Arrowhead Mountain Vineyard grows on volcanic rock. 

At Broc Cellars, all of the wines are made using spontaneous fermentation, a process that means they only use native yeasts and bacteria that exist on the grapes in order to make wine. They don’t add anything – this includes nutrients, yeast, bacteria, enzymes, tannins or other popular fermentation agents. Sulphur is a naturally occurring element in all wine, the amount found can vary. They add little to no S02, depending on the wine and style.

Broc Cellars Love White
California

Varietal: ?43% Marsanne, 28% Roussanne, 17% Grenache Blanc, 12% Picpoul
Vineyard: Love Ranch
Location: Madera Foothills, CA

Grapes for the Love White come from Broc Cellar's friend Oscar Ramos’ vineyard – Love Ranch. Located 35 miles south of Yosemite National Park in Madera County. At 1,350 ft elevation, it’s not your normal Central Valley Vineyard. The soils are made up of granitic schist and is farmed without the use of pesticides. They keep a large amount of leaves on the vines to protect against the heat. They also keep a slightly larger crop to disperse much of the sun’s energy to prevent the sugars from spiking and to help maintain the alcohols below 14%.

Una Lou Rose of Pinot Noir Can of Wine
California

When Lia Ices and her husband, Andrew Mariani, welcomed their daughter, Una Lou, into the world they created a celebratory rosé in her name.
Una Lou: WHITE PEACH, JASMINE, WILD STRAWBERRY
Family-owned and sustainably farmed vineyards in northern California.
Vineyards: Leveroni, Ricci, Scheid.

A percentage of proceeds will go to two organizations that support youth, food and agricultural education: the Edible Schoolyard, and The Center for Land-Based Learning.

Cedar + Salmon Pinot Noir
Willamette Valley, Oregon


Brimming with fresh blackberry and plum aromas, our Willamette Valley Pinot Noir gains earth and herb nuances with time. Ripe red plums and red cherries dominate the smooth palate, accented by a dash of herbs.

Freakshow Zinfandel
Lodi, California

"A new act has joined our band of Freaks - The Dazzling Fire Mistress that is Freakshow Zin! The third installment in the Freakshow lineup - following a Cabernet Sauvignon and a Red Blend - pays homage to our roots in Lodi, a region known for exceptional Zinfandel. Typically known as a bold varietal, the Fire Mistress shows the softer, sexier side of Lodi Zin, focusing on the distinctive bright fruit and spice characteristics for which our heritage varietal is known."

Tasting Notes:
Elegance, charm and excitement come together in the hottest thing to ever grace the Freakshow stage…We present to you, the Dazzling Fire Mistress! This Zinfandel spotlights the variety’s blazing red berry, cherry and dark fruit while flirting with pepper and spice notes. Medium-bodied and graceful with fine tannins, toasted oak and a lingering spice-laced finish.

Torres Rosé De Casta Dry
Italy


Born to be rosé ~ After years of study and inspired by the rocks surrounding their vineyards, Miguel Torres Carbó - a pioneer of his time - made a wine out of his desire to create a unique rosé.

Tasting Notes: Raspberry color with purple highlights. Lively and fragrant with delicate fruit (pomegranate, redcurrant) and floral (sage) aromas. A silky, savory, dry palate with an elegant note (quince preserves) on the finish.


Argiano Non Confunditur
Italy


‘Non Confunditur’ is a Latin term that means unique, unmistakable. Argiano christened this wine Non Confunditur as a tribute to their prestigious and glorious past. Non Confunditur is the product of the unique combination of Tuscan and French grapes. Since 2002, NC has earned its place alongside the finest Tuscan blends.

NC is a wine with a decisive, full-bodied character, smooth tannins and a persistent finish. This blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah andSangiovese reveals an exciting potency, with the innate gentleness of Merlot creating a bridge between the evident earthiness of Sangiovese, the aromatic blackcurrant flavour of Cabernet and the warm red berries of Syrah. The result is a generous, rounded red wine, destined for short to medium ageing, with delicious aromas of currants and generous fruit flavours, versatile enough to develop in greater depth during long months in the bottle.
