Clos Pegase has selected the top sellers from their cellars for the holiday season:
1. 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon has a dense ruby purple color. This wine has heady and exotic dark fruit notes of ripe black and red cherries and plums compli¬mented by scents of violets, graphite, black licorice, wild sage and a touch of sweet cedar. This rich Cabernet Sauvignon deftly balances mineral-tinged fruit, cocoa powder tannins and full mouthfeel with a prominent mid-palate fleshiness and a lengthy refined finish.
2. 2010 Merlot is deep purple ruby in color, with exotic dark fruit notes of black cherry, plum and cassis framed by violets, Darjeeling tea, graphite and a touch of sweet incense. This substantial Merlot deftly balances voluptuous fruit, supple ripe tannins and broad mid-palate volume with a lengthy dark fruit and cocoa finish counterbalanced by a prominent minerality.
3. 2011 Pinot Noir has exotic Burgundian aromas of red cherry and mulberry accented by dried shiitake mushroom, oolong tea, sweet spices and toasted hazelnuts. Silky and seamless in the mouth, gaining its structure through pitch-perfect acidity counterbalanc¬ing the opulent mouthfeel.
4. 2012 Chardonnay possesses intriguing complex aromas of Meyer lemon, ripe pineapple, Blenheim apricots, tarte tatin, white honeysuckle and beeswax, framed by subtly spicy toasty oak. A broad mid-palate with an energetic drive and deli¬cious fruit leads to a finish with a fascinating balance of length, opulence and minerality.
