Coral Mika, Imports Manager says: It is time to start stocking up on bubbly. For me, this is a year-round love affair so I am always on the lookout for good buys and in general, great bubbles. I tend toward the drier style of sparkling so when I saw that we had gotten some of this zero dosage Champagne I did not hesitate. The less sugar the more you can really taste the wine underneath the masterpiece and enjoy the crisp loveliness. $32.95 would be a steal but at $29.95 on 6 or more this is a must. Did I mention the 90 points from Burghound? These are now in-stock and ready to ship shortly when the weather cools off!
Connie Wilson, bookkeeper says: It is always great to discover new producers in Napa Valley, and Austin Saladin of Saladin Cellars has created a gem of a cabernet. From fruit sourced on Howell Mountain and Rutherford, this bold wine is very drinkable now, or can be cellared for another decade. Blackcurrant, black licorice, mineral and red fruit highlights all combine with a nice acidity – delicious with a great Italian meal. Austin is a St. Helena native whose great-great grandparents immigrated to Napa Valley in 1906 from the Monferrato wine region in Piemonte, Italy. “Notte di Vino” is a tribute to them, and all the Italian immigrants, who were the backbone of the early wine industry in Napa Valley.
