Overture

Red Blend by Opus One 

Our Price $126.99

*Not available to taste due to limited supply

Overture reflects the winemaker’s artistry by showcasing the talent of blending five traditional Bordeaux grape varieties and capturing terroir characteristics of the same variety grown in different soils. However, Overture’s third blending aspect – that of marrying multiple vintages – yields a softer, rounder expression of our estate that can be enjoyed upon release.

A timeless expression of the estate vineyards, Overture is full bodied but approachable in its youth. The knockout finish is vast and expansive.

French oak, this Bordeaux blend possesses generous aromas and flavors of dark fruit, spice, and cigar box with a soft, supple mid-palate.


Kanzler Vineyards   

Pinot Noir  Sonoma Coast  2016

Our Price $49.99

93 points Wine Spectator       

Only 750 cases made

The 2016 Pinot Noir is an incredibly multidimensional wine, starting with a nose that presents clove, wet earth, orange peel, rhubarb and alpine strawberry. This wine strikes the palate with a core of lively acidity carrying huckleberry, Santa Rosa plum and black tea flavors in a taunt, silky-lush, and lively mouthfeel. The finish echoes the nose in complexity and is augmented by hints of honeycomb and white pepper that mingle with fine and pleasing tannins.

Ruby-red with sparkling garnet highlights. Aromas of wild blackberry, Santa Rosa plum, and strawberry with hints of oregano, sage and white pepper. Inviting flavors of ripe raspberry, boysenberry, black-fruit jam and warming spices; moderate acidity and bold tannins.

90 points James Suckling

A simple and straightforward cab with some berry and fresh-herb character.  Medium body, some firm tannins and a flavorful finish.

Turley

Old Vine Zinfandel 2016 

Our Price $29.99

Perhaps no other winery, at least since the glory days of Ravenswood with Joel Peterson's old vine, single vineyard expressions of California's iconic grape, has defined California Zinfandel as well as Turley.

91 Points Robert Parker

One of Turley's emblematic bottlings, the 2016 Zinfandel Old Vines exhibits a lovely bouquet of raspberries, plums, cherries and licorice. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, deep and concentrated, with rich structuring tannins, a generous core of fleshy fruit and a long, flavorful finish. Passalacqua notes that a lot of the single vineyards that Turley works with today began life as part of the Old Vines blend while the sources and farming improvements were made and that a few barrels of many of the top single vineyards usually find their way into the blend.
