2011 White Elephant
Light straw color with beautiful tropical aromas of mango, guava and passion fruit. These carry forward into the palate and with it comes superior acidity from the core base of Chenin Blanc, which shows exquisite citrus such as lemon / lime, meyer lemon and key lime.
2014 M-80, Chardonnay, Russian River Valley, Sonoma County
The M-80 firework, is extremely loud, explosive and dangerous. The same is true with our M-80 Chardonnay. We select choice Chardonnay grapes from the cool climate of Sonoma County, pick at optimal ripeness and ferment exclusively in French oak and put the wine through 100% Malo-Lactic fermentation. The wine is generous in its vanilla and buttery aromas and flavors which some may describe as extreme, explosive and dangerous.
2014 Cherry Bomb, Pinot Noir, Russian River Valley, Sonoma County
This is a wine we have wanted to make for about 15 years. The concept is simple, when you choose the right clones of Pinot Noir grown in the best spots and picked at optimal ripeness the flavors that jump out of the glass are easily summed upby the expression “Cherry Bomb”.
2014 Napa Cab
Vinum Cellars was established in 1997 based on producing value oriented, varietal/appellation specific wines. Cabernet Sauvignon from the Napa Valley confirms our belief that only specific grape varietals should be grown within appellations that are ideally suited to the varietal.
2015 Petite Sirah, Clarksburg
The wine is uber concentrated and ripe with blueberry and boysenberry fruit which are elegantly wrapped in a silky vanilla wrapping. The entry of this dense Petite is both tannic and bold while maintaining a juicy, overripe profile displaying ample acidity to balance the tannins and fruit concentration making it multidimensional and food friendly. The finish is so supple and smooth that you will miss it when it is gone.
2014 Red Dirt Red, Paso Robles
Medium plum color with garnet hue. Intense crushed raspberry aromas fill the glass, backed by licorice and white pepper notes. The palate is juicy with ripe black cherry and the ample acidity suggests sour cherry as well.
