Germain-Robin XO is an icon of California brandy. Distilled exclusively in Pruhlo Charentais pot stills and aged in French Limousin oak barrels, XO highlights the unique flavors and characteristics of California-grown grapes. The signature grape, Pinot Noir, provides a dark cherry character and a rich silky mouthfeel. Colombard distillate adds a fresh apple character while Sémillon provides richness with peach and apricot notes. The balance of both fruit and oak flavors is unique to Germain-Robin XO. The vanilla and toast character from oak aging complement the fruit creating layers of complexity that only can be found from sourcing great fruit. Texturally, the brandy is extremely smooth and has an incredibly long finish.

Generous and round with uncommon finesse, the 2017 Non Confunditur is an international blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah and Sangiovese. The wine opens with fruit-forward notes of raspberry, cherry, black currant and blackberry, with darker, earthy hints of balsamic and bramble at the finish. Full-bodied and smooth, fine tannins and a long finish make this wine approachable while young with the potential for moderate aging. We give great attention to encouraging beneficial organisms and natural predators in our vineyards and use no synthetic chemicals. Our goal is to unite the soils’ microbiology, microclimates, clones and vineyard conditions to produce the most expressive fruit each vintage. Our high-density vines use spurred cordon training as well as limiting cluster numbers to maximize quality. Our vineyards benefit from our favorable position atop a plateau around 980 feet in altitude, where the growing season is extended by the combination of cold nights and constant winds from the coast. Vintage 2017 brought well-distributed rains and a favorable summer free from excessive temperatures. Grapes were well-balanced due to heavy, drying winds. A shorter season, we harvested grapes in early September.

Our 2018 Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel is rich and expansive, opening with intense aromas of freshly-cracked black pepper and undertones of clove and allspice. On the palate, fruit-forward notes of baked boysenberry and cassis are framed with notes of brambly dried fruits, cocoa dust and peppered jerky. This wine’s soft edges and extraordinarily long finish are complemented by hints of graphite, bay leaves and vanilla.

Louis M. Martini Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon V18 750ML

sale price $44.99
Grapes for this wine were handpicked from several of our premium Napa Valley vineyards, including William Hill, Sun Lake, Cypress Ranch, Sage Canyon and other select growers. The 2018 vintage began, like 2017, with plentiful winter rains. A consistently warm and steady summer eased into a mild fall, resulting in a slightly later harvest that delivered beautifully developed fruit with marked complexity. <br><br>Upon arrival at the winery, the grapes were carefully destemmed and transferred to upright tanks for a two day cold soak. To build its round, elegant mouthfeel, the wine saw 15 to 20 days of maceration time and was pumped over two to three times daily. Each lot was aged and meticulously evaluated separately, with the final blend taking place in May 2019. In total, the wine aged for 16 months in a combination of French and American oak barrels (40% new).
