Tasting Notes

Fresh and juicy Merlot-based red wine from Montagne Saint Émilion. Though rich and powerful, it also possesses elegance and feminine characteristics. A hint of lavender and orchard fruits as well as cedar and red clay minerality. Unfiltered and unfined.

Staff Pick Notes

I love Merlot and so should you! Numerous preconceptions aside, this a fresh, fruit-driven varietal that is seen at its best when grown in mineral rich soils and cooler climates. Enter Right Bank Bordeaux, and one of my favorite appellations, St Emillion. Known for powerful but elegant Merlot-driven wines, the Pentimento is no exception. Juicy black fruit, currants, and an earthy backbone are in full-effect. I love it for the price, and that it already has few years on it. Put it away for few more or open tonight with a killer steak frites. Just give it a good decanting beforehand.

Cabernet Franc

Relegated to moderate obscurity in modern times, Cabernet Franc is in fact the proud parent of the attention-hogging Cabernet Sauvignon (after an illicit affair with Sauvignon Blanc a hundred-odd years ago). Cabernet Franc has remained close to its roots in France, enjoying small pockets of popularity primarily in the Loire Valley (specifically in Chinon), where it is often bottled as a varietal...

Cabernet Sauvignon

The result of an illicit affair a hundred-odd years ago between Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon today enjoys more worldwide popularity than both of its parents combined. It is the principal grape of Bordeaux, and as such has rightly earned its place among the greatest and most long-lived wines of the Old World; of course, it is also the most heralded grape of California,...
