Power, passion and pleasure. You got your ideal job, just married the love of your life, received a promotion, become a new parent or grandparent, retired. You feel top of the world. This is how you celebrate: 37 Cellars 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon.
This blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cab Franc and Petit Verdot stirs the senses as it unfurls aromas of dark cherry, ripe blackberries, a hint of new leather and a whiff of smoke. On the palate it displays its power with long lasting mid-palate flavors and a sensuous, lengthy finish. Aged 24 months in 50% new French and European oak barrels.
Char-grilled lamb or steak, good bread and someone special to share it, and the 37 Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon. How much better can it get?

In a fairy tale, Sleeping Beauty slept 100 years before being awakened by a kiss. This wine doesn't need to sleep for 100 years, but if you have the will-power to allow it to sleep for three to five years you will be delightfully rewarded as was the Prince.
This 2010 Merlot offers a nose of bramble fruits, berry, cherry and hints of leather and cedar wrapped in the lightly vanilla-oaked tannins. Enjoy it with your char-grilled steak or herb-crusted rack of lamb. Drink now thru 2020. Best by 2015.
Tech notes: This wine was aged 17 months in new American oak and neutral French oak.

In the glass, the glow of garnets rimmed with the fire of rubies beckons. From the inviting depths arise aromas of black currants, bramble fruits, hints of plum and spice, enhanced by the touch of oak - stirring the senses. A sip, and bold flavors tantalize the tongue, releasing pleasure....lingering long. Enjoy with a mild sheep's milk cheese as meat sizzles on the grill, or a lamb tagine rests in the oven or slow-cooker.
This wine will rest well in your cellar as it gracefully ages. Can't wait? Decant for present enjoyment.

Chardonnay: oaked or not oaked? While we enjoy both styles, for this vintage we opted to age it for 8 months only in stainless steel before bottling.
This is the music of a fresh spring day: harmonies of crisp and cool refresh body and spirit, with a counterpoint of tropical fruit to enliven the experience. These are the senses evoked by our 2012 Chardonnay. Fermented in stainless steel and unmanipulated – this is simply Chardonnay, singing its song.
Simple, yes, but the on-the-lees ageing has brought a texture to the wine that pleases the palate, providing a velvety texture on the tongue. Sip a well-chilled glass while envisioning a candlelit dinner with someone special: linguine with clams in a white wine sauce or the contrasting textures of Mac and Cheese with crumbled crisp bacon. A picnic with fried chicken, friends and laughter also comes to mind. This is a wine for many moods and many pleasures.
