Nuance Notes

November, 2013

We would love to help with your holiday wine needs!  If you’re in the greater Bay Area, call or e-mail an order by November 19 to save the shipping costs, and Dan will deliver by November 24.  We have released a whopping four vintages this year, and all are available now to enjoy with your holiday festivities.  They are:

2012 Chardonnay, Sonoma Coast–It was an ideal growing season for Chard grapes and we’re getting rave reviews as the fruit shines through in this crisp, lively wine.

2011 Zinfandel, Dry Creek Valley–This balanced, full-bodied Zin is from old vines in the Dry Creek Valley. Hints of mocha and spice make it special.

2010 Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley–The red fruit-driven grapes of our popular ’08 St. Helena vineyard were combined with black fruit-dominated Soda Canyon grapes for this special blend.

2011 Cabernet Sauvignon, Oak Knoll–We returned to a favorite vineyard that produced our ’09 vintage.  The ’11 is balanced, yet lively, and a great all-around wine with food.

Orders may be placed through the website or call Dan or Ruthann directly (925-389-0072 or 925-389-0033) to arrange for a delivery anywhere in the greater Bay Area.
