contains one bottle each:
2021 Girls Girls Girls, White Wine, California
In the glass, you'll be drawn into a sexy perfume of nectarine, pineapple, and blooming spring flowers. Take a sip and bask in the citrus waves of lemon and grapefruit, with a complex assortment of thyme, spice, and a salinity that will pair perfectly with seafood. Thanks to the Albariño and Picpoul, this wine is all about the refreshing, crisp acidity that will leave your tongue-twisting with delight.
2021 Boys Boys Boys, White Wine, El Dorado County, Camino Alto Vineyard
What we love about this wine is the way it smells. Sexy aromas of yellow peach and lemon invite you in for a splash. In your mouth, it's a romp, with Fiano flavors of honey, plus pear, lemongrass, and white pepper spice. Where this thing really works is with food. So get your cheeseboards out, start prepping your Thai curry, and prepare yourself to let loose.
2020 Nora, Skin-Fermented Ripasso White Wine, El Dorado County
All around, Nora is drop-dead gorgeous, but its vibrant tangerine hue is mesmerizing. It may be the orangest orange wine we have made too. Aromatically, it is packed full of tangy fruit and an arousing floral perfume that is simply irresistible. In your mouth, it is exhilarating, balancing bright concentrated flavors with elegance. Smooth sexy flavors of wild strawberries slide across your tongue with complementary notes of apricots, rainier cherries, and honeysuckle. But what really gets us hot is that signature Black Sears pepper spice that gracefully integrates with the fruit flavors to make a wine that is smooth and delicious, but also complex and sophisticated.
2019 Hey, DJ, Save Us Tonight, Red Wine, California
This California red blend ain’t no sucka MC. 51% of our grapes were harvested from the beloved Sierra Foothills. The remaining 49% Syrah was plucked from Napa and whole-cluster fermented. The entire lot cozied up in neutral oak barrels, allowing those stellar cherry, stewed plum, and white pepper notes to shine. The result is a ruby red wine with crimson edges, lush tannins, and a finish as smooth as jazz. Hey DJ has bright acidity so do us a solid by pairing it with a soup, like minestrone. You jivin' yet?
2019 The Benefits of Solitude, Red Wine, California
Pale Garnet in color, the wine reminds us of the brick-red glow of a blood moon during a lunar eclipse. It makes sense that Big Sur is featured on the label, as wafts of forest floor, cedar and dried florals float from the glass. There is a hint of cinnamon, enveloped in ripe macerating strawberries that lure you into the glass for each sip. On the palate, it's all about dried cranberries, currants, orange peel and a sprinkle of Szechuan peppercorn. This wine is light and juicy in the best ways, with a beautiful tartness and clean finish. Low in tannins, we think this wine would be a great pairing to ramen bowls, mushroom toasts or white pizza.
2019 Fifteen, Red Wine, California
Pale Ruby at the rim, Fifteen moves to a deep magenta color at its core. Wafts of brandied cherries, violets and cedar float from the glass enticing you to take a sip. Once you lift the glass to your lips, don't expect to put it down anytime soon. This wine is all about blueberry and blackberry jam on the palate, reminding us of those shortbread thumbprint cookies we used to eat around the holidays. The tannins ripple across your tongue like velvet, with a lingering finish that leaves you longing for another sip.
