2009 Cline Pinot Noir. Sonoma Valley

In the latter part of the 1800s, Oakley, Contra Costa County was a booming farming community with thousands of acres of orchards and healthy vineyards. Fred Cline's maternal grandfather, Valeriano Jacuzzi of pump and spa fame, called this place home. On summer visits to his grandparents, Fred learned both the love of agricultural life and the mysteries of vinifying grapes into wine. In 1982, with an inheritance from his grandfather, Fred founded Cline Cellars near Oakley, California. Here, he preserved and restored many ancient vine sites to their rightful reign as premier California wine lands.

2007 Duxoup Syrah, Sonoma Valley
One bottle: $20

12-bottles solid case: $15
We are delighted to release this new vintage of a Duxoup Classic. We have made Syrah since we began the winery in 1981. As with past vintages, we blended in 10% Cabernet Sauvignon – from grapes grown adjacent to the Syrah block, on the same marvelous gravelly soil. The grapes were fermented, pressed, racked, aged and bottled in the Duxoup Tradition – slowly and carefully!

2007 Duxoup Charbono, Napa Valley
One bottle: $20

12-bottles solid case: $15
Duxoup has been making wine from the same ancient vines (planted before the turn of the last century) since 1985. Our winery works with the Frediani family- venerable growers who farm their grapes in the northern Napa Valley, just outside the town of Calistoga. The Charbono variety is relatively rare and thrives only in very particular areas.

Wine will be available for pick up one week from today, Friday, April 1.Your name:
