Wine Accolades

“Start with the epic Cabernet Sauvignon from Aperture Cellars, their first vineyard designate wine and a real stunner from Sonoma's Alexander Valley. Dark garnet in the glass, this wine smells of black cherry and tobacco and a hint of green herbs. In the mouth, rich juicy cherry and tobacco notes mix with espresso and a touch of mint. Fantastic acidity and length, with an underlying skeleton of supple, fine-grained tannins. Long cherry and cocoa powder finish.”
–Alder Yarrow, Vinography

“Tobacco and violets make a daring pair in this tremendously deep, jammy red. Malbec is blended in, a beloved variety of winemaker Jesse Katz, who has spent time in Argentina and more recently in Bordeaux, where he worked the Pétrus harvest after he left Lancaster Estate. The sleek, silky wine is aged 22 months in 100% French oak (50% new).” Aperture Cabernet Sauvignon
