2013 Tamber Bey “Trench Vineyard” Sauvignon Blanc (Napa Valley)

TBLabel_SauvBlanc_2013_750ml-front_larger.102534$32/bottle or $27.95/bottle on six +

Winery Tasting Notes:
This wine is very fresh and aromatic. The nose delivers expressions of gooseberry, cassis bud, a touch of lemon grass with hints of minerality, sweet anis, and a light, delicate smokiness to finish. The mouthfeel is a perfect balance of creaminess and acidity. In addition to the fruity notes on the palate, there is a light spiciness (nutmeg) and a hint of cookie dough. The very long finish leaves the mouth watering for more. 1100 cases produced.

Jay’s Take: “This is a great crisp and delicious sauvignon blanc.  Well balanced with fruit and acidity, this wine is perfect for any hot day, bbq, or fish dish.”





2012 Tamber Bey “Deux Chevaux Vineyard” Chardonnay (Napa Valley)

TBLabel_DCChard_2012_750ml-front_smaller.103029$55/bottle or $35/bottle on six +

Winery Tasting Notes:
This wine is all about what makes our Deux Chevaux Vineyard Chardonnay so special. The complex nose mixes butterscotch, vanilla, sweet oak, dry fruits (apricots, mangos, bananas) up front that evolves into more subtle fennel flower, white truffle and Asagio cheese notes. The mouthfeel is rich, lush and creamy, mixing delicate apricot, brioche, white chocolate and dulce de leche flavors. 780 cases produced.

Jay’s Take: “This chardonnay is beautiful!  Perfect balance of oak and lucious fruit with a smooth creamy finish.  This wine will have you begging for more.”






2011 Tamber Bey “Deux Chevaux Vineyard” Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa Valley)

TBLabel2011_Cab_front.103805$45/bottle or $35/bottle on six +

Winery Tasting Notes:
The 2011 Deux Chevaux Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon continues to present itself as a classic Napa valley floor Cabernet Sauvignon from the Yountville Appellation. The nose greets you with aromas of cola, plum, crushed stone, sweet vanilla and a light touch of leather. The mouth feel is soft and round, with a perception of sweetness. Dusty tannins will evolve with age. Flavors of cola mixed with dark stone fruits and kirsch. The finish delivers sweet oak notes, cigar box and chocolate powder. 1072 cases produced.

Jay’s Take: “Always a solid performer in the cabernet department.  This big bold cabernet will awesomely pair well with grilled meats and bold flavors, but can also be appreciated on it’s own.”





2011 Tamber Bey “Deux Chevaux Vineyard” Rabicano (Napa Valley)

TBLabel2011_Rabicano_front.104206$55/bottle or $35/bottle on six +

Winery Tasting Notes:
60% cabernet sauvignon, 26% Merlot, 9% Cabernet Franc, 5% Petit Verdot
The 2011 Bordeaux blend “Rabicano” represents the fifth vintage of this Yountville Appellation wine from the Deux Chevaux Vineyard.  The nose is greeted with aromas of red currant, red cherry, a hint of pomegranate, clay and floral in the form of delicate lavender notes. The aroma evolves into light cedar, gentian violet and blackberry.  The mouth feel is medium bodied, velvety, seamless and fresh, thanks to good acidity lifting up the wine. Flavors of pomegranate are mixed with an herbal hint. The finish mixes delicate crushed raspberry notes with light cigar box, smokiness and ash. This is a wonderful “drink now” wine that will also improve with age. 1520 cases produced.

Jay’s Take: “This beauty is ready to be enjoyed now.  Such wonderul inviting aromas and flavors, this too will have you begging for mercy!”
