AA+ Gift Pack Allure and Arriere
Arriere Red Blend and The Allure Cabernet Sauvignon.
Featuring Napa all the way through Coombsville, Stags Leap and St Helena appellations. Both from just about perfect drinking now in their sweet spot.
Arriere is made by Keith and Chelli Webster of the perennially sold out Webster Cellars. Allure is the inaugural release from uber talented Jacqueline Yoakum. She is consulting winemaker for Italics, a cult cab.
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
WHAT WE TASTED: An exciting wine, spicy, subtle, and lean. Spicy with pepper, licorice and clove. Subtle showing notes of cassis, tobacco, mild cherries, blackberry and just a hint of cacao. Soft entry, the mid-palate satisfying, and the finish is elegant.
- 60% Merlot 40% Syrah
PERSONALITY: The label is an original art piece that Keith Webster painted during his time as a New York artist. He is a multifaceted man. This project was about expressing Keith and Chelli’s mutual creativity by combining the two mediums together.
Wrapped and packed in a sleek black box for powerful gift giving.
