La Famiglia Shipment: May 2016

Here’s what’s in our May wine club shipment…

Le Vigne 2013 Coure Della Vigna

Tasting notes: Leading with Sangiovese characer, a rustic nose with flavors of cigar box, red raspberry, clove, and ginger are complemented by the robust structure of Cabernet with creamy texture, lingering tannins, and olive finish.

Le Vigne 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Di Domenico

Tasting notes: Beginning with a distinct earthy profile of cedar and soil, cherry and rubbed sage emerge over a sustained graphite note. A luxurious mouthfeel punctured by cheeky tannins leads into a mouthwatering lingonberry finish.

Le Vigne 2013 Cabernet Franc Di Ranchita Vista

Tasting notes: Alluring varietal exression of Caberne Franc with a nose of freshly raked autumn leaves and a delightful suggestion of apple turnover. Chewy tannins and clean minerality exhibit the structure of Bordelais grapes in calcareous soil, with promising ageability.

Red Only: Le Vigne 2014 Paso Robles Zinfandel

Tasting notes: Sumptuous aromas of fig and molten brown sugar precede a ripe melange of blackberry, blueberry, and cranberry, enveloping clean graphite mouthfeel and nutty tannins.

Red and White Mix: Le Vigne 2015 Paso Robles Viognier

Tasting notes: Crisp and inviting Bosc pear and tangerine zest mingle with plantain, subtle fresh ginger and coconut for a rounded and lush wine, ready for enjoyment with many cuisines.

Riserva (12 Bottle) Shipment: Le Vigne 2007 Ame De La Vigne

Tasting notes: Roasted chestnuts, dates, and spiced plum hilight the nose of this library release, properly cellared to perfection. The bouquet has developed hints of Alba truffle, hickory, and pencil shavings, along with notes of caramel, soy, and ume (Japanese pickled plum).
