    Item #24670

    Dan Updike says:

    Introduced to us by the late John Given (Italian importer) this is a sweet red made from the Refosco grape. It’s a bit like a well-made Lambrusco without the fizz. Sweet, but not overly so, it still... view more

    2013 / 750 ml.

    United States | Napa Valley | Napa County
    Item #39965

    Dan Updike says:

    The richness in this Napa County Sauvignon Blanc is sneaky because the flavors are so fresh and bright, but the weight is indeed there. Plush flavors of green melon, fig, and yellow plum are abundant.

    A bright, crimson-fruited Amarone with Christmas spices and evergreen forest floor hints. It’s on the wiry side right now but that should improve with time, or at least a vigorous decant. Nothing... view more
