The Holiday Gift Box contains one bottle of Chardonnay 2011 and one bottle of Cabernet Sauvingon 2010. The wines will be shipped together within the black Alpha Omega box for a beautiful presentation to family and friends.
Happy Holidays from the Alpha Omega Team!
The diversity of clones and our cool climate vineyards make our Chardonnay unique. The natural high acidity allows us to ferment 100% in barrels, and go through 100% Malolactic Fermentation. We strive to accomplish the best of both worlds - high acidity and minerality like a traditional Burgundy yet with roundness on the palate as a traditional California Chardonnay.
Cabernet Sauvignon 2010
Cabernet Sauvignon is the core varietal of Napa Valley. Cabernet likes the heat and sun of Napa Valley so it can reach ripe aromas and tannins which make the varietal very exciting. Although, as with every wine, the balance between tannins, acidity, mouth feel and aromas has to be respected. In light of this, we add a touch of Merlot for softness, Cabernet Franc for spice and Petit Verdot to strengthen the wine.
