Trenta Picades Vino Tinto Artesano 2015
The wine is made from Garnatxa grapes grown near the village of Torroja in the Priorat region of Catalonia. The landscape is arid and the roots of the vines have to dig deep into the earth to find water. this results in very low yields of higly concentrated grape berries. Only 300 bottles of Trenta Picades have been made.

Turret Fields DO Jumilla Monastrell & Syrah, 2014/15
The name comes from the turret of Castle Madax which dominates the vineyard of the same name.
Working with the excellent Bodegas Juan Gil, the wine was aged for 4 months in new American oak barrels. The raisin character and warmth of the Monastrell is matched by the spice of the Syrah, all enhanced and rounded off by its spell in oak.
Urbina Rioja Reserva Especial 1998
95% Tempranillo, 5% Mazuelo and Graciano. Aged 18 months in American oak casks (12 months in new oak and 6 in 7 year old oak) and a minimum of 12 months in bottle before release. Dark ruby red with amber glints, very pronounced, seductive figs, apricots, nuts, savoury vanilla oak bouquet. Voluptuous, sweet middle palate with delicious, concentrated ripe berry, mature fruit broadening out. Wonderful length, classy and complex wine.

Pronounced via-“dare”, VIADER is a leading Napa Valley wine estate established in 1986 by Delia Viader, and recognized around the world for consistently producing high quality wines.
The VIADER Vineyards are located on the steep rocky slopes of Howell Mountain, 1200 feet above the Napa Valley floor, approximately 3 miles northeast of St. Helena.
The propriety blend is the estate’s flagship wine and is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. The Cabernet Sauvignon provides structure, character and complexity with succulent fruit and rich tannins, whilst the Cabernet Franc adds aromatics and imparts a silky structure, suppleness and elegance.
1996 was a very good year for Napa wine, a warm vintage the wines show good concentration and depth. This prestigious wine is ready for drinking now and has been stored impeccably in our own temperature and humidity controlled cellar.
