NEW WINES FOR DECEMBER

 Picchetti Winery Update

2010 BRUT ROSÉ
Santa Cruz Mountains
384-cases produced (12.5% Alc.)
This sparkling wine was crafted with artisan attention to quality, using traditional Champenoise methods, with hand-harvested grapes sourced exclusively from the Santa Cruz Mountains. A wine of great balance, emphasizing fruit and floral characteristics, it is a blend of 56% Pinot Noir from the Krause Vineyard in Los Altos Hills and 44% Chardonnay from Mount Eden. Both lots were whole-cluster pressed for delicacy, fermented in stainless steel tanks, transferred to neutral oak barrels for aging, blended, tiraged, and then bottle-aged for a further 20-months on the yeast to develop complexity. The labor-intensive process of disgorging and dosage has recently been completed, and the beautiful luminous pale salmon bottles are finally ready for your enjoyment. This mineral-edged rosé offers a mouth-watering nose full of enticing wild strawberry aromas, delightful toasted brioche nuances and a trace of rose petals. A creamy mousse entry onto the palate leads to zesty grapefruit flavors, and bright acidity sustains the lengthy refreshing finish. Delicious as an aperitif or served with a wide range of cuisine, from fresh oysters to grilled prawns, smoked salmon, mussels, almonds and olives. It matches splendidly with mild cheeses, such as Brie, Fontana and Monterey Jack, and also complements hard-to-pair artichokes and asparagus.
Another Picchetti first!
Club Price: $42.46
Mixed Case Discount: $33.97

2004 RESERVE ANGELICA
Library Special
Very Limited Supply (16.8% Alc.)
For a limited time only (while supplies last), we are releasing a small quantity of cases of our award-winning "Liquid Love" from the vaults of the Picchetti Library. This decadent White Port was created by adding brandy to our Estate Chardonnay grapes midway through fermentation, and then barrel-aging the fortified wine for over 6-years in French Oak, allowing it to become infused with the complex and delicate flavors from the toasting of the barrels. Luscious, with a hedonistic mouth-feel, it has hints of caramel, honey and orange peel, with a velvety hazelnut finish. In a 375 ml bottle, it is the perfect accompaniment to cheesecake, tiramisu, panna cotta or crème brûlée. Because of the anticipated demand for this unique dessert wine, we are limiting purchases to 2-bottles per customer and will not be pouring samples in the tasting room.
Pure elegance in a glass!
