2015 Zinfandel | Retail: $18.00
Due to a favorable warm and dry growing season, this vintage was ripe and rich from day one! The nose shows layers of chocolate, fig, red licorice and spicy potpourri. The palate is also fruit-forward with flavors of berry-pie, rhubarb, cinnamon candy and cranberry. There’s a hint of pepper and toffee that adds to the palate and the finish.
Paired with: Truffles Dusted with Cocoa Powder
2015 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon | Retail: $60.00
The 2015 Reserve Santa Cruz Mountains Cabernet Sauvignon is a beautifully bold mountain-influenced Cab. The color is a deep garnet with excellent clarity. Vibrant aromas of blackberries, blueberries, and black currants are present. In addition to these dark fruit notes, hints of earthy spice, dried prunes, and toasted vanilla bean develop on the nose as well. Flavors are fruit forward with nuanced layers of oak, spice and chocolate.
Paired with: Belgium Chocolate Truffle Hearts
Chaucer’s Blackberry Wine | Retail: $15.00
Our Blackberry wine is made from 100% pure blackberry varieties. We make the wine straight from the berries; we don’t make it from blackberry juice that was made by someone else. We take fresh berries and ferment them to dry. Right before bottling we add fresh juice back in to help with the sweetness and the fresh blackberry aroma. Dark rich berry aromas leap from the glass while the flavors remind me of my Grandmothers blackberry pie, if it was to be served in liquid form.
Paired with: Dark Chocolate Truffles with Bargetto Pinot Noir Filling
2015 Port | Retail: $20.00
Our 2015 Port exudes a classic ruby port style, made from traditional Portuguese varietals. The color is a deep opaque purple. Aromas are diverse: dark chocolate, orange zest, dried plum, pepper and clove. Flavors of Mexican-style spiced cocoa, blueberry syrup, dried cherries and ripe blackberries marry well on the palate.
Paired with: Milk Chocolate Truffles
Chaucer’s Raspberry Wine | Retail: $15.00
Made from 100% pure fruit, there is a clear, light crimson color and the flavor is bursting with enticing aromas of freshly crushed raspberries. The color of this wine is a deep garnet and nose is rich in raspberry jam, cherry and baking spices. There’s a hint of apple and cherry on the palate. Crisp acidity from the berries balances well with the sweetness of this wine. When served fresh, this wine has bright ripe raspberry on the nose, flavor and finish. berries.
