RED WINE
2018 Klipsun Cabernet Sauvignon Walla Walla
Average retail $165
Our price $110

Fruit for this wine comes from one of the appellation’s oldest and most venerated vineyards. The aromas of dark roasted coffee bean, black cherry, licorice and dried herbs draw you in. Velvety, juicy cherry flavors follow. It’s a hammer in a velvet glove, a wine that wins on nuance and grace but with plenty of power behind it. Undeniable in appeal now, this is really meant for the cellar.

BOBBY’S PRIVATE COLLECTION
2019 Fontodi Flaccianello della Pieve Tuscany
Average retail $265
Our price $245

This is a phenomenal and proudly confident vintage of the estate’s top Sangiovese, which represents a blend of organic fruit from the best parcels. The wine’s personality reveals brooding darkness and austerity, and these impressions are reinforced by savory tones of cigar smoke and earthy leather. The core of the wine is tight and richly concentrated with generous blackberry and plum. The velvety tannins are integrated but still youthful and grippy.

RED WINE
2019 Fontodi Pinot Nero Case Via Tuscany
Average retail $85
Our price $75

The 2019 Pinot Nero Case Via is a very special expression of the grape that shows darkness and increased concentration in this beautiful vintage. This wine offers a purely Tuscan take on Pinot Nero. It pours from the bottle with a dark garnet color, showing aromas of dried cherry, smoke, tar and road paving. The wine closes with a broad, mid-weight approach.
