Here are the detailed wine notes:
Lamarca Prosecco | Napa, California
In the heart of Italy’s lush Prosecco region, the La Marca Trevigiana zone grows the revered glera grapes we use to make our delicately flavored wine. With delicate, golden straw color and lively effervescence, our Prosecco is one of the best with aromas of fresh citrus, honey and white flowers. The palate is fresh and clean, with flavors of ripe lemon, green apple and grapefruit framed by mineral undertones. Website
Cost: $11.99

William HillChardonnay | Central Coast, California
With roots deeply anchored in the Napa Valley, William Hill Estate crafts luxury Chardonnay and Bordeaux varietal wines from the undiscovered vineyards of California’s most celebrated regions. Beginning with William Hill Estate’s 140-acre benchland vineyard near the Silverado Trail, Winemaker Mark Williams turns to the hidden corners of southern Napa, the North Coast and the Central Coast to create a unique collection of rich, expressive wines.

William Hill Cabernet Sauvignon | Napa
Our Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is a rich, complex wine that combines generous fruit flavors with a smooth-but-structured mouthfeel to display the full character of oustanding Napa Valley Cabernet. The wine is a beautiful dense purple and opens with aromas of ripe dark fruit and spice. On the palate, intense flavors of blackberry, black cherry and plum mingle with lingering notes of sage, licorice and molasses. This is a full-bodied and well-structured Cabernet fine, soft tannins and a long, satsfying finish.Website

Alexandria Nicole Quarry Butte Red 2015 | Horse Heaven Hills, California
Our Estate Destiny Ridge Vineyard was slated to become a rock quarry before we planted on this unique vineyard site. Today, we are honored for the natural beauty and terroir afforded to us by this amazing location and we are pleased to share it with you. Quarry Butte is an elegantly expressive six varietal blend which captures the unique terroir of Destiny Ridge Vineyard. Deep purple in color, this red blend exudes aromas of black currant, red cherry, and sweet tobacco leaf. Rich yet firm in texture, the palate is full and bursting with ample amounts of blackberry, raspberry, vanilla bean, and cedar wood spice. The finish is filled with supple and velvety tannins, which balance effortlessly amongst the harmony of boysenberry, plum, and toasted oak undertones. If pairing with food, don’t hesitate to try with a Manchego Buffalo burger, grilled lamb chops with an herbed chimichurri sauce or your favorite BBQ fare. Drink now and enjoy at room temperature! 58% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc, 10% Syrah 4% Petite Verdot & 4% Malbec. Website

PureCru CFM |
Cedar-cigar box notes aromatically right up front with hints of classic sweet clove from the Franc and a deep rose. On the palate the clove, cedar mingles with black fruits and a touch of pepper to form a complex spicy wine with a Bordeaux like minerality accented by currants, pomegranate and black plum. Complex and full bodied, yet bright with big shoulders and a long finish. Website
Cost: $44.99
