GIFT PACK CHALONE CHARDONNAY & LOUIS MARTINI SONOMA CABERNET SAUVIGNON

Includes gift box LOUIS MARTINI 2011 SONOMA CABERNET SAUVIGNON - Never being the kind to just rest on their laurels, the Louis Martini winery keeps making top-notch wine for exceptionally reasonable prices. Not only has this been a previous Hi-Time "Wine of the Month", but it has also been rated at the top of the restaurants list of greatest wines for the price! Heck…last year, even wine critic Robert Parker called this wine, "one of the great values in Cabernet Sauvignon in the marketplace". For more than 70 years, Martini family winemakers have walked the hillside vineyards of Napa and Sonoma counties, searching for the most distinctive flavors of the best Cabernet Sauvignon grapes. Winemaker Michael Martini performs every aspect of winemaking by hand; no "wine factory" mentality, here! He blends small batches of mouth-filling wines (for this bottling, Alexander Valley and Dry Creek Valley) that can highlight the differences in the vineyards or balance their individual strengths in a marriage of flavor and structure.

The 2011 Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon grapes were blended seamlessly to bring together the unique characteristics of each vineyard, creating a superbly balanced Cabernet Sauvignon. This wine has fresh red plum and blackberry jam aromas and flavors that are supported by caramelized and toasted oak notes. The round, full mouthfeel has just enough structure to lead into a fruit-focused finish. Thanks, Mike…..keep the good juice comin

CHALONE 2010 LIMITED RELEASE CHARDONNAY - The spectacular 2010 vintage in the Chalone appellation gave this Chardonnay its highly nuanced flavors and exceptional structure.” “The cool temperatures allowed us to patiently wait for wonderfully ripe flavors, revealed in the wine as layers of peach, pear and citrus, while the pronounced minerality and silky texture come from our unique terroir. As always, right after bottling, I found fresh, lemony notes predominating in the aromas, but it is now starting to develop the complex brioche nuances that I love in this wine as it ages.
