January 31, 2015

We are very excited to have these amazing Californian wines in stock. They have received some great reviews from Robert Parker of the Wine Advocate, see below. We have 12 bottles of each for the year so buy them now while you can. I cannot wait to try these.

2012 Benovia Chardonnay Ft. Ross-Seaview
A Chardonnay Dry Table wine from USA, Sonoma, North Coast, California, USA
The 2012 Chardonnay Ft. Ross/Seaview is a brilliant example of Sonoma Coast Chardonnay, showing notes of honeysuckle, white peach, unbuttered popcorn, spring flowers and white currants. Complex and medium to full-bodied with a delicate influence of oak, this beauty should drink nicely for 5-7 years, perhaps longer. Rating: 94
Drink 2014 - 2021

2012 Benovia Chardonnay la Pommeraie
A Chardonnay Dry White Table wine from USA , Sonoma, North Coast, California, USA
The 2012 Chardonnay La Pommeraie exhibits more tropical fruit notes as well as hints of hazelnut oil and orange blossoms. Brilliantly constructed with medium to full body, good acidity and a judicious touch of oak, it should drink well for 6-8 years. Rating: 93
Drink 2014 – 2022

2012 Benovia Pinot Noir la Pommeraie
A Pinot Noir Dry Red Table wine from USA , Sonoma, North Coast, California, USA
The 2012 Pinot Noir La Pommeraie exhibits notes of apple skins, plums, cherries and earth, more complexity than the Tilton Hill, medium body, and good richness, purity and depth. It should drink well for 4-5 years. Rating: 90

Drink 2014 - 2019
