Terra Valentine Duo 6-Pack

 
My Image
 
 
A favorite of DouxVin’s, Terra Valentine produces wines of extraordinary quality that over-deliver for the value. Angus and Margaret Wurtele founded Terra Valentine in 1996 when they purchased a newly producing vineyard on Spring Mountain and named it the Wurtele Vineyard. In 1999, they hired Sam Baxter and his father Phil, and began making wines at the historic Yverdon Winery on Spring Mountain. Sam and Angela Baxter purchased the company from the Wurteles and continue the legacy of Terra Valentine wines.
 
Terra Valentine Vineyards
 
 

This “Spring Mountain/Atlas Creek Signature Duo” includes three bottles each of two glorious red wines:

 
 
Cabernet Sauvignon
 
2014 Terra Valentine Cabernet Sauvignon Wurtele Vineyard
The Wurtele Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon has been sourced from the same part of the estate vineyard since 1996. At the top of the estate lies a north-facing slope with shallow rocky volcanic soils. The vines on this part of the vineyard produce intensely concentrated fruit with deep color and structure. This 100% cabernet sauvignon is aged in 50% new French oak and has the structure to age gracefully for up to 20 years.

Nicely oaky, though the wood eases off, allowing the core flavors of dark berry, espresso, licorice, anise and boysenberry to shine. Maintains focus but gains depth and persistence. Best from 2020 through 2036.

Amore
 
2013 Terra Valentine Amore
Inspired by the love of Italian Super Tuscan Sangiovese blends, Terra Valentine created Amore. They source the Sangiovese from Piero Antinori's vineyard located at 1600 feet elevation in the Atlas Peak appellation of the eastern hills of the Napa Valley. The Sangiovese gets a 5-day cold soak prior to fermentation and is punched down daily in our automated punch-down tanks. The wine is aged in French Oak 300L puncheon, of which 25% are new. At the time of blending, small amounts of their estate Cabernets and Merlot fill out the palate and create a seamless blend that showcases the bright strawberry and blueberry fruit of the Sangiovese. A perennial DouxVin staple.

A Special Collection For A Special Day

 
My Image
The 4th of July holds special significance for me for two key reasons. Firstly, growing up in Johannesburg, July 4 was a special date that we always celebrated, as it was my parent’s wedding anniversary. My father, a true wine aficionado and avid collector, would bring out a bottle or three for the family to share on this auspicious date, especially for me and my siblings, as we are the living embodiment of that July day in 1963!

Trevor & Mimi

When I arrived in the US in 1985, settling first in LA, I joined in the unique celebration of America’s independence, I learned to appreciate all that makes our country and system such a shining example to the world. As millions have done before me, after officially becoming a citizen many years ago, July 4 is not only a celebration of the American spirit and our values, but, personally, embodies a new home, a welcoming place to build a future, a broad canvas on which to live a full, free and rewarding life. These past 35 years have been truly amazing and, as usual, this coming 4th of July celebration will be another special day to celebrate this special American adventure.
 
 

In recognition of those that have come to America over the centuries, I’ve composed a collection of wine from around the world (and one from here of course) to celebrate our diversity and adventurous spirit, bottles I intend to share with friends on the 4th.

This six-pack collection is a great accompaniment to the traditional outdoor festivities, from backyard barbecues to picnics watching fireworks:
  • France: NV Champagne Palmer & Co. Brut Reserve
  • Austria: 2017 Kracher Pinot Gris Trocken
  • Portugal: 2016 Quinta de la Rosa Estate White
  • Italy: 2018 Elena Walch Lagrein
  • Argentina: 2018 Zuccardi Q Malbec
  • USA: 2013 Terra Valentine Amore
 
 
Happy Fourth!

A Sojourn Down the Loire

Bourgois Copy
Henri Bourgeois
 
Sancerre is renowned for white wine and is one of the world’s benchmarks for Sauvignon Blanc. However, the Sancerre experience is incomplete without savoring the two red varietals allowed in the region: Pinot Noir and Pineau D’Aunis. One of our favorite producers in Sancerre, Famille Bourgeois, produces extraordinary wines from all three of these varietals featured in this splendid collection.
The Big Family
Famille Bourgeois, now in its 11th generation, covers 72 hectares of the esteemed Sancerre and Pouilly-Fumé appellations, located in the most desired of Sancerre locations, Chavignol. And yes, Chavignol goat cheese and Sancerre Blanc are a perfect food pairing. Today, Arnaud, Lionel, and Jean-Christophe Bourgeois are just as much the stewards of that history as the initiators of the future of the vines and wines of the house. Though the family is forever striving to perfect their craft, they remain committed to Henri’s original vision of showcasing the purity of the varietals and the unique beauty of the Loire Valley.
 
This “Perfect for Summer” 6-Pack special collection includes two bottles each of:
 
 
Blanc
 
2016 Bourgeois ‘La Bourgeoise’ Sancerre Blanc
"La Bourgeoise" is made from old Sauvignon vines growing on flinty slopes first worked by the monks of Saint Satur. The old vines of Domaine Henri Bourgeois offer a distinct character with notes as aromatically diverse and complex as the rugged terrain from which they came. 

93 points Wine Spectator

 
Sancerre Rouge
 
2016 Bourgeois ‘Les Baronnes’ Sancerre Rouge
The beautiful Sancerre Rouge is made from 100% Pinot Noir grapes from 40 year old vines. Following fermentation the wine spends up to 10 months in Tronçais oak barrels. On the nose, black cherries and vanilla with a hint of mint. On the palate, medium-bodied and slightly spicy with savory notes and balanced acidity.

Rosé
 
2016 Bourgeois ‘Le Vert-Galant’ Pineau d’Aunis Rosé
An excellent Rosé from the Coteaux du Vendômois, the northernmost appellation of the Loire Valley. Made in a vin-gris style, this wine is beautiful, crisp and ideal to imbibe on a warm summer day.
