					                 Quinta da Muradella 2006 Bastardo
ORIGIN                    TASTING NOTES:
Spain
                          The 2006 Bastardo spent 14 months in
VARIETAL
Bastardo                  French oak. It is medium ruby-colored with
                          kinky aromas of underbrush, mineral, wild
ALCOHOL                   cherry and black raspberry. Elegant, velvety
14.5%                     textured, and complex on the palate, this
                          impeccably balanced wine will drink well for
                          6-8 years. Unfortunately, there is not much
                          of this singular wine to go around. Quinta da
                          Muradella is where star vigneron Raul Perez
                          makes his A Trabe wines. Grapes from this
                          vineyard were once used to make Grappa but
                          now serve a more noble purpose. A mere 1.2
                          hectares in size, the vineyard is now
                          biodynamically farmed.




             Hourglass 2007 Cabernet Franc Blueline
ORIGIN                    TASTING NOTES:
California
                          Intoxicating high tone aromatics of crushed
VARIETAL
Cabernet Franc            rose petals and candied violets mixed with
                          toasty vanilla. The 2007 Cab Franc is deep in
ALCOHOL                   ripe dark fruit character with a striking
15.8%                     richness. Good acidity highlights a brightness
                          indicative of Cab Franc at it best. The floral
                          characters carry through on the palette adding
                          complexity to the dark fruit which lingers
                          through an extended finish. Tannins are
                          polished with supple texture.
