A to V Dine & Dessert Pack - Allure and Van der Heyden
The Allure Cabernet Sauvignon and Van Der Heyden Late Harvest Dessert Zinfandel
Featuring Napa all the way through Coombsville, Oak Knoll and St Helena appellations. A fabulous ride
Allure is the inaugural release from uber talented Jacqueline Yoakum. She is consulting winemaker for Italics. Andre Van Der Heyden needs no introduction, both he and his wines are adored
WHAT WE TASTED: Instant pop of dense berry then cigar box like notes kick in. Cassis in spades and not bowled over with excessive tannins. It is so elegant through the natural fermentation like a textured lattice that holds the fruit and lifts and carries you to each height of new taste revealed if you linger. Because it will indulge.
- Long Meadow Ranch (St Helena) and Bennett Ranch (Coombsville) fruit as in the best of both worlds
Sweet, Smooth and Rich.
Andre Van Der Heyden was one of the first vintners to build a winery on the Silverado Trail. Known for extremely aged wines, including to die for sweet, late harvest wines, his loyal following knows no bounds.
But he is newly retired and enjoying the fruits of his labor so we have a wonderful opportunity to offer the last of his personal stash.
2004 Late Harvest Zinfandel (sweet and bold) - Rich and luxurious flavors of chocolate, plum, dark berry with lovely oak infused vanilla. From his now sold Oak Knoll estate.
Going going going. 375ml
