OUR CHAMPION WINE OF 2021:
TIMBRE'S PINOT NOIR!

CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH-UP

NEW ZEALAND
WHITE

Lisa's Favorite:

"Winemaker Judy Fowler of Puriri Hills in New Zealand makes elegant wines true to the natural characteristics of grape and terroir. Her Mokoroa Sauvignon Blanc has been a favorite of customers and ours for years. Its crisp, acidic taste mimics the cool maritime climate of the island with a flavor as deep and impactful as the red clay soils. The aromatics pinch the senses with the unique gooseberry and grassy signature style of a New Zealand white wine like no other. It's grace in a glass, made by a Virginia native."

U.S.A.
RED

Jeff's Favorite:

"The Timbre Opening Act, made by award-winning sommelier turned winemaker Joshua Klapper, is one of my favorite values in Pinot Noir. This is the seventh vintage that we've carried, starting from when Joshua was bottling under the "La Fenetre" label, (and was $2 more expensive) and the wines never fail to over deliver. Coming entirely from Mission Ranch, planted in 1961, in Monterrey's Arroyo Seco AVA and aged 15 months in neutral French oak it shows great depth and concentration with raspberry, blackberry, plum flavors with a touch of baking spices through the long, elegant finish."
