Thurs., Dec. 19, 5 – 7 p.m. – Rombauer Vineyards
The Rombauer philosophy hasn’t changed since our founding in 1980: “We believe in doing everything in our power to produce the best wines possible. Guided by passion and expertise, Rombauer spares no effort or expense to produce the finest wines each vintage offers.”
- 2018 Carneros Chardonnay — Pale yellow with a green tinge to the hue. Aromas of yellow peach, mango with a slight citrus note intertwine seamlessly with vanilla spice. The palate is rich and round, with the mango and vanilla fight for the lime light, while the creamy texture, vanilla and slight butter combine seamlessly. The balanced acidity closes out the finish bringing the multiple components into balance.
- 2017 Rombauer Zinfandel — This classic California Zinfandel is dark purple-ruby, with a bright crimson hue. On the nose, concentrated aromas of blackberry and raspberry meld with clove and spice. Lush flavors of raspberry, blackberry jam, plums and vanilla flood the palate, followed by touches of white pepper in the background. Plush and round tannins and great length make for a fresh and enticing finish.
- 2016 Napa Valley Merlot — Aromas of fresh, ripe blueberries, ripe plum and black currant intertwine with notes of cedar, vanilla and pie crust. This medium-bodied wine is plush with flavors of plums, blueberries and figs upfront, leading to juicy red fruit on the midpalate. Delicious now, its depth and structure provide long cellaring potential.
- 2016 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon — This wine is deep purple with a bright fuscia rim. The nose is expressive, with aromas of red cherry and sage with a hint of violet, spice and toast. The wine is full-bodied, packed with flavors of raspberry and black cherry, along with notes of violet and toast from the oak. Supple tannins carry through to a fine and smooth finish.
