Gaja Dagromis Barolo
This polished Barolo is sourced from highly regarded vineyards that Gaja purchased in 1995 and is named to honour the site's original owners: the Gromis family. Gaja DaGromis Barolo is an intense red color. Aromas of violets, rose petals and a hint of white pepper combine with rich, red currant, licorice and balanced oak. The initial aromatics flow across the palate with freshness and harmonious complexity, revealing juicy red orange and red grapefruit. The classic licorice and mineral austerity is buttressed by oak and noticeable tannins, which soften as the wine ages.
Duckhorn Cabernet Sauvignon
Complex and compelling, this wine has vibrant layers of red and black fruit mingled with hints of violet, dried herbs, black licorice and graphite on the nose. The flavours echo the aromas, with lovely black currant and licorice elements supported by firm, impeccably balanced, tannins and an excellent structure. Good acidity helps to carry the juicy dark fruit notes through to a long, satisfying finish.
Gaja Pieve Santa Restituta Brunello di Montepulciano
96 Points, Greg Sherwood MW: "...fabulously plush, concentrated and intense expression of Brunello and represents probably the estate's best vintage to date. The aromatics are perfumed and detailed showing cherry blossom, violets, vanilla oak spice and ripe dark layers of red and black berries, sweet cherry tobacco, cola and subtle red liquorice notes..." (February 2021)
Combining lovely structure and alluring appeal, this is a classic expression of Duckhorn Vineyards Merlot. Intense aromas of ripe cherry, plum and black fig rise from the glass, underscored by hints of leather and cedar. On the palate, it is lush and supple, with bright acidity and velvety tannins supporting layers of raspberry and black cherry, as well as hints of coffee and chocolate that carry through on the long finish.
Gaja Ca'Marcanda Promis
Opens with floral aromas of wild rose and violet, then it turns into a more earthy bouquet with hints of maritime pine, eucalyptus, roots, wet stones. The palate is fresh and juicy, with notes of red and black fruits - raspberry, wild strawberry, and mulberry. Creamy, smooth tannins.
Duckhorn Sauvignon Blanc
This enticing wine offers vivid flavors of grapefruit and apricot, as well as lovely notes of honeydew and lemongrass. On the palate, refreshing acidity mingles with a subtle sweetness that carries through to a fresh, lively finish.
Silver Oak Alexander Valley
The savoury, aromatic, ripe (not to mention super-popular) Silver Oak Alexander Valley Cabernet comes from the winery’s Red Tail, Miraval and Geyserville Estate vineyards and comprises fruit from the region’s hillsides, benchlands and valley floor. The result is a classic, complex wine, with dark fruit, smoky vanilla and coconut notes from American oak barrels produced in Silver Oak’s own cooperage.
Duckhorn Decoy Cabernet Sauvignon
Decoy Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon offers a rich and appealing expression of the varietal crafted to be ready upon release. From its deep, inviting colour to its enticing aromas of blackberry, currant and cocoa, this wine showcases what we love about great Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon. On the palate, the lush fruit flavours are framed by rich tannins and hints of sweet oak and spice.
Duckhorn Decoy Merlot
Inspired after a visit to Bordeaux, Dan Duckhorn produced the first vintage of Duckhorn Vineyards Napa Valley Merlot in 1978. Highlighting Estate vineyards and top sites, our renown Merlot reflects the diversity of the valley’s many appellations. Blending with Cabernet Sauvignon adds notable depth and structure, as well as signature flavors of black cherry, plum and spice.
