2019 Illanta Wines Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc – $28
Sourced from the sustainably farmed, organic Morgaen Lee Vineyard in Yountville valley AVA, our 2019 Sauvignon Blanc is refreshing and crisp. Aromas of honeysuckle and nectarines excite the senses. Tastes of grapefruit and stone fruit compliment the enticing bouquet followed by a bright, mouth-watering finish.
2016 Illanta Wines Santa Rita Hills Chardonnay – $48
Our 2016 Illanta Wines Chardonnay highlights the cool climate grapes sourced from the Sta. Rita Hills. Aged in new French oak barrels, the wine takes on a delicate richness from the oak while retaining a fresh finish. Balanced fruit and floral aromas please the nose while bright apple and stone fruit flavors fill the palate complemented by hints of vanilla and nutmeg. This beautiful Chardonnay offers refreshing acidity with a silky finish.
2016 Illanta Wines Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel – $68
Our 2016 Zinfandel is bright and smooth with aromas of cherries and violets. Red cherry, pomegranate, and red currant flavors fill the palate, complimented by hints of spice, while mild tannins leave a mouth-watering finish. This versatile Zinfandel will pair beautifully with roasted meats and hearty soups but is also elegant enough to enjoy on its own while unwinding at the end of your day
