1. Domaine de la Pousse d'Or, Volnay Premier Cru En Caillerets, 2016
This wine is produced in Volnay, part of Cote de Beaune in Burgundy, France. Volnay is one of the richest expressions of Red Burgundy which epitomizes Pinot Noir for many. Expect an aroma of strawberry and cherry, with notes of leather and violets.
2. Tapiz, Black Tears Malbec, 2016
Malbec has risen in popularity, and at Seagar’s we’re pleased to provide a premium offering such as this one from Tapiz. Tapiz has been recognized by Wine Spectator, Wine Enthusiast and others for its top-notch Malbec. Pair this wine with a hearty steak dish like the Bone-in Ribeye or N.Y. Strip.
3. Flowers, Sea View Ridge Vineyard Pinot Noir, 2016
This savory and classic Pinot Noir is grown in the far western section of Sonoma, considered by many to be in the “real Sonoma Coast.” You’ll note hints of bay leaf, cinnamon and graham cracker, complimenting cranberry and cherry in this elegant wine.
4. Penner-Ash, Shea Vineyard Pinot Noir, 2016
Shea Vineyard is widely recognized for producing some of Oregon’s best Pinot Noir grapes, often a producer’s best wine. The Penner-Ash Pinot Noir made from these grapes features aromas of strawberry jam and hibiscus tea.
5. Domaine Vocoret et Fils, Les Forets Chablis Premier Cru, 2016
Domaine Vocoret et Fils is a French winery that has been family-owned and operated for four generations. Found in 1870, the winery has grown from a small operation on a street of Vieux Chablis to an expansive estate that distributes wines globally. This particular wine from the estate displays the wonderful minerality Chablis is known for, with the absence of oak many seek. Pair this wine with seafood and shellfish like lobster or oysters.
6. Aubert, Larry Hyde & Sons Vineyard Chardonnay, 2017
One of California’s greatest winemakers, Aubert, coupled with Larry Hyde’s grapes makes for an incredible Chardonnay. Aromas of powdered ginger, lime zest, white peach and lemon oil mix with layers of fresh pear, green tea, lemongrass, and honeycomb. The winemakers at Aubert are committed to minimal intervention winemaking, so this wine may look slightly hazy in the glass.
7. Far Niente, Chardonnay, 2017
This is a classic example of full-bodied Napa Chardonnay. If you prefer to pair white wine with your prime beef dish, Far Niente Chardonnay provides the body needed to properly complement the meal.
8. CrossBarn by Paul Hobbs, Cabernet Sauvignon, 2016
Another one of California’s greatest winemakers, Paul Hobbs combines quality and value in the CrossBarn Cabernet Sauvignon. In the opaque purple-colored wine, you’ll find aromas of red currant, ripe blackberry and mocha.
9. Faust, Cabernet Sauvignon, 2016
Made by Agustin Huneeus of Quintessa, Faust has quickly become a standard in Napa Cabernet to which many others are compared. The 2016 Fause Cabernet is a blend of grapes from estate vineyards in Coombsville and Rutherford, and grapes sourced from Atlas Peak, Mount Veeder and Howell Mountain.
10. Lail, J. Daniel Cuvée Cabernet Sauvignon, 2016
The Lail family legacy dates back to Gustave Niebaum, who founded famed Inglenook Wine Estate in Napa Valley in the 1880s. This wine scored a perfect 100 points from Wine Advocate. Visit Seagar’s and taste this perfectly-scored wine for yourself.
