Fantastic Juice from Aperture Wines
|2020 Aperture Cellars Chenin Blanc North Coast $30
Tasting Notes: A beautiful example of the variety, the 2020 Chenin Blanc has plenty of citrus and dried herb aromatics as well as a medium-bodied, fresh, lively style on the palate that offers remarkable purity of fruit.
|2020 Aperture, Sauvignon Blanc Sonoma County $45
Tasting Notes: Our custom barrel-fermentation, adapted from winemaker Jesse Katz’s experience at Haut Brion in Bordeaux, creates a distinct complexity and rich weight on the palate for the 2020 Sauvignon Blanc, that is balanced by the brightly lifted acidity and an enveloping bouquet of tropical fruits and fresh citrus. The precise blend of sémillon adds a hint of minerality, rich lemon notes, and a beautifully polished texture.
|2019 Aperture Cellars, Red Blend Alexander Valley $65
Tasting Notes: Deep ruby-purple in color, the nose bursts with lilac perfume, Morello cherries, cured meats, star anise, tar and a mineral undercurrent. The palate is pixelated and lifted with glorious perfume lingering on the very long finish.
|2019 Aperture Cellars, Cabernet Sauvignon Alexander Valley $90
Tasting Notes: 97RP - Still in barrel, the 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon has a deep ruby color and bursts from the glass with detailed aromas of violet, tar, cassis, liquid cherries, and graphite. This young wine has a stunning perfume! The palate is pure and grainy. Bursts of freshness lift its perfume, and its pure flavors linger a long time in the mouth.
|2017 Aperture Cellars, Cabernet Sauvignon Del Rio Vineyard $150
Tasting Notes: The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Del Rio Vineyard has an opaque ruby-purple color and notable purity on the nose. Morello cherries and spiced plums are accented by notes of milk chocolate, mint leaves, star anise and graphite. The full-bodied palate is powerful and fresh with intense, spicy fruits laced with mineral character and still fairly youthfully wound. Allow it time to improve in bottle over the next 3-5 years and then enjoy it over the next 15-20+ years. 450 cases were made.
