Red & White Sampler
Our Red and White Sampler includes two holiday favorites in a beautiful gift box. Includes one bottle each of 2016 D2 (*25th Vintage* Shimmer Label) and 2016 Chaleur Blanc.
2016 Chaleur Blanc
This vibrant, lightly golden wine offers aromas of grapefruit, apples and pears, complimented by earthy notes of golden hay and wet stones. Offering hints of tropical fruit, apricots and candied lemon, the palate is enhanced with subtle barrel notes of light vanilla, eucalyptus and caramel, with a savory streusel character. This 2016 presents Chaleur Blanc’s characteristic crisp acidity, with a noteworthy dense core of fruit that extends well into a lengthy finish.
2016 D2, the 25th vintage of this remarkable cuvee, leaps from the glass with an impressive and inviting abundance of fruit aromas, including pomegranate, fresh blueberry and currant. Restrained oak influence enrobes the fruit, adding essences of cocoa nibs and cherry cordial. Dense and vibrant on the palate, with a pure fruit core, this wine offers elegant tannin and remarkable integration. Incredibly balanced barrel influence and Cabernet presence supports an extended finish.
