Hello from Selene!
Happy Spring! Everything in Napa is blooming, and the weather has been perfect for shorts and motorcycle riding.
So before it gets too hot to ship wine, we thought we would dig through the cellar and find some library wines that you’d enjoy. We have tasted these and they are all showing very well.
Big news, we now have a license to ship to Massachusetts!!

2013 Selene Sauvignon Blanc Hyde Vineyards (100% Sauvignon Blanc Musque selection , 905 cases $22.50/bottle) 91 Points Wine Spectator!
Mia’s tasting notes: Bosc pear, white peach, honeydew melon, orange blossom honey, white chocolate, clove, and saffron petals. Flavors in the mouth mirror the aromatics with very good intensity. There is a savory quality to this wine with a mouthwatering, long finish.
2013 Selene Merlot Frediani Vineyard (100% Merlot, 424 cases $35.00/bottle)
Mia’s tasting notes: I haven’t doted over a Merlot like this since the 2008. A winemaker’s pet, if you will. Blackberry syrup, Black Forest cake, complete with dark chocolate, black cherries, and cream; also some caramel/molasses and buttery cinnamon toast. In the mouth there is very good impact and intensity; the wine is even-tempered, with balanced tannins and acid, and finishing with fine texture and length.
