San Felice Chianti Classico 2014
Made entirely from native grape varieties, chiefly Sangiovese with the addition of Colorino and Pugnitello, this is a typical, medium-bodied Chianti Classico with a marked personality of particular elegance. Vinification follows the traditional sequence, with medium-length maceration, followed by ageing for 12 months in Slavonian oak ovals.
The Prisoner Wine Company The Prisoner 2015The Prisoner was created and inspired by the drinkable "mixed blacks" first made by the Italian immigrants who originally settled in the Napa Valley. Launched in 2003, The Prisoner soon became the most recognized innovative and unique Napa Valley Red Wine blend, leading the resurgence of blends by incorporating Zinfandel with the unlikely "mix" of Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Petite Sirah, and Charbono. Features enticing aromas of Bing cherry, dark chocolate, clove, and roasted fig. Persistent flavors of ripe raspberry, boysenberry, pomegranate, and vanilla linger harmoniously, for a smooth and luscious finish.
J. Lohr Los Osos MerlotThe 2014 J. Lohr Estates Los Osos Merlot presents a mature red color with a raspberry hue.

Whole berry fermentation with a generous use of Malbec in the blend accentuates the fine tannins, bright fruit tones and lengthy finish. Pairing: An excellent pairing for cheese tortellini or herb-roasted chicken.
