    Bargetto 2019 Rosé of Syrah

    John Bargetto '88 MBA

    Our 2019 Rosé of Syrah comes from Dorcich Family Vineyards in the Santa Clara Valley. The grapes were whole cluster pressed immediately after being harvested to minimize skin contact, which resulted in the beautiful light watermelon-pink color. This wine showcases lovely aromas of wild berries and rose petals. On the palate, it is both savory and fruit-forward, with notes of strawberry, cherry, watermelon, and peach. With balanced acidity and just a touch of residual sugar, this wine is easy to drink, especially on a warm summer day. This wine should be enjoyed young, and served chilled. Pairs well with seafood and light pasta dishes.

    Casa Piena 2017 Our Gang Cabernet Sauvignon

    Carmen and Gail Policy (Notre Dame Parents)

    With this vintage the expression of Our Gang is a little darker. Right from the first stages of visually inspecting the wine, you notice the opaque dark purple hue. The aromas suggest loam, violet, spice-dusted macerated blackberries, black tea and thyme. This wine displays rich fruit depth and nuance on the palate. Mouth-watering notes suggest lavender, black cherry, nutmeg, pine bough, and dark brambly fruit notes precisely framed by a vivacious acid framework.

    Rich and luxurious, this deep ruby-colored wine displays a lovely purity of fruit, with aromas of blackcurrant and boysenberry leading to notes of blueberry and a touch of dried herbs on the palate.

Sourced from select vineyards across Napa Valley, this wine beautifully encapsulates the entirety of the appellation.

    Rick Mirer '93

    Parr Vineyard is located in the North Coast Appellation of Knights Valley. The location, with its ideal soils and climate, makes for a perfect area to grow Chardonnay.

    Nestled in the remote Sonoma mountains and influenced by Mt. St. Helena, the days are warm and the nights are cool. The Vineyard is a very cool and foggy site that ripens the grapes slowly with racy acidity. The soil is comprised of sandy loam - perfect for Chardonnay.

    Color: bright, shiny yellow gold with touches of mercury on the rim
    On the nose: explosion of toasted brioche, pear, banana, apricot and quince paste with creme brulee, citrus blossom, and orange peel
    On the palate: round entrance evolving on a fresh mid-palate with touches of caramel and lemon yogurt, lingering on a beautiful acidity"

    Red Stitch 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon

    John Micek '01

    This brooding and lush Napa Cabernet alights the eye with a dark red core that gently fades to scarlet at its edge. A hedonistic perfume of currant, black cherry, sandalwood, and forest earth rise from the glass. Ripe black cherries, dark chocolate covered raspberries, and an essence of Tahitian vanilla move elegantly across the palate in a well-balanced dance. Rich, round tannins accompany a lingering finish that allows for youthful consumption while confirming its ability to cellar for years to come.
