2020 Raza Vinho Verde Rose The Raza rose is made in Northwest Portugal from 3 indigenous grape varieties; Vinhao, Padeiro & Espadeiro. This wine has a classic, fruit forward, vibrant style. The wine is bursting with red berry fruit, shows a slight spritz, as well as an intense freshness that is a direct result of the intrinsic characteristics of the native grapes.
Ultraviolet Sparkling Rose NV Ultaviolet is a project from Samantha Sheehan in Napa, California. Under this label she produces a Cabernet Sauvignon and this nonvintage sparkling rose. It is comprised of 100% Pinot Noir. This wine is floral and mineral-driven with small, fine bubbles. It shows notes of white flowers, rose petals, strawberry, raspberry, and grapefruit zest.
2019 Rhonea ‘La Porte d’Autanne’ Cairanne Cotes du Rhone This blend from Rhonea out of the Rhone Valley in France is a blend of Grenache, Carignan, and Syrah. In the glass this wine has an intense purple color with purple hues. On the nose it has aromas of black and ripe cherries supported by spicy and minty notes. On the palate the balance is perfect with a freshness stimulated by the crunchiness of the fruit and the pepper under the cover of well-integrated tannins.
2019 Foxglove Cabernet Sauvignon At the core of Foxglove is Bob Varner, also the winemaker at Varner Wines. Starting from their first vintage in 1991, Bob sources the wine from a variety of places, but the Foxglove Cabernet is from Paso Robles. It is a blend of 94% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Petit Verdot, and 2% Cabernet Franc. This wine offers Bordeaux character by blending red and black fruit with pepper, cedar and bittersweet chocolate.
