Premium Bottle Wines Offered

Cabernet Sauvignon “Bucella”  The wine is very smooth at entry with gobs of juicy, bright and fresh fruit, thick and velvety through the mid-palate, and finished with black cherry, dark chocolate and a similar reminder of fresh, juicy berries. 

Cabernet Sauvignon “Palmaz” Not once, in the complete winemaking process at Palmaz Vineyards, does the wine come in contact with a pump. It is this extraordinarily gentle handling that gives Palmaz wines their unique “hand-made” quality and rare elegance.  Deep, complex and well balanced by supple tannins. They are eminently ageable wines, yet approachable enough to be enjoyed in their youth.

Cabernet Sauvignon “Darioush” Inspired by the complexity and style of Bordeaux’s cooler-climate wines, Darioush Signature Cabernet Sauvignon exemplifies how meticulous farming in southern Napa Valley’s fog-influenced districts and hillsides results in powerful, personality-driven Cabernet Sauvignons with extraordinary character, depth and poise.

Chardonnay “Palmaz” Balance and elegance is goal every year with this elegant Chardonnay. We choose to source fruit both from the East and West side of Napa contributing inviting layers of citrus aromas and rich tropical flavors. Our Chardonnay is cold fermented underground in barrel and aged sur-lies for 7 months  to ensure a subtle richness that does not overwhelm the fruit characteristics.

Chardonnay “Shafer” Red Shoulder Ranch Offers alluring, luxurious aromas and flavors of honeysuckle, apricot, melon, pineapple all held together with bright acidity, flinty structure and elegant balance. 
“…one of the best non-malolactic, barrel-fermented Chardonnays in California …”
