New arrivals – Mutant Killer Zombie Manhattan Project Thingy – B. Nektar Meadery 10% ABV 16.9 b-nektar-zombie-thingyoz Bottle

Sometimes bad things happen and we have to make it right. When one of our scientists accidentally crossbred the DNA of Zombie Killer into The Zombies Take Manhattan, this delicious mutant was born. While society may never let us create such an abomination again, we just couldn’t put it out of its misery. Enjoy this one while you can.

Saint AIX Vine De Provence Rose 2015aix rose

“Delicate perfume of ripe mandarin oranges, raspberries and wild strawberries. Slightly spicy in the taste. Again a tribute to red forest fruits, cherries, strawberries and fresh fig, with a hint of thyme. Ideal as an aperitif, but also as a lunch rose when combined with seafood, salads, grilled tuna or roasted chicken.” – Cees Van Casteren, Master of Wine

Just in: 2012 Hoopes Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon, 1.5L

Posted on

Just in: 2012 Hoopes Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon, 1.5L Bottle. Barrel aged for 22 months. We’re pleasedhoopescab to have this gorgeous wine in our collection here at Silver Cow. Enjoy by the glass or bottle.

“Our 2012 Oakville Cabernet is an exciting wine for me, personally. Oakville is the heart and soul of the Napa Valley and my favorite playground for winemaking. The Hoopes Vineyard site is classic Oakville. Our 2012 offering is a rich, deep wine. It is juicy, with layers of dark cassis, blackberry and cherry as well as elements of cola, baking spices, leather and graphite. Although our wine has been called “big” in the past, this description matches this vintage to a ‘T.’ I love how this wine opens up and pops in the mouth with complexity on the nose, but freshness on the palate. This wine follows through to a lovely finish, with supple tannins.
– Winemaker, Anne Vawter

From the Vine – Shooting Star Blue Franc 2012

Posted on

From the Vine – Shooting Star Blue Franc 2012. Available by the glass and by the bottleitem-shooting-star-blue-franc--346_med

From Winery:
This wine is very similar to the wines that I tasted in Austria more than 25 years ago. Unlike other Steele and Shooting Star red wine bottlings, our Blue Franc receives little, or no, oak aging. Some liken our Blue Franc, depending on vintage, to Pinot Noir in lighter years and Zinfandel in the riper vintages. Sometimes it is totally akin to a top-flight Gamay from Beaujolais. The wine is clean, crisp, and unpretentious with tons of fruit, including warm berry pie, complementing the traces of pepper, almond, cherry and cinnamon. Our Shooting Star Blue Franc has soft tannins, medium body, great color and is the perfect red wine to enjoy over the summer with any festive occasion. It is excellent with appetizers, cheeses, BBQ, and picnics. Recently we had the opportunity to try the Blue Franc on the deck with a toasted sandwich of smoked chicken, grilled onion, and avocado – quintessentially quaffable!
