DOUBLE GOLD MEDAL
(2017 New York International Wine Competition)

SILVER MEDAL (2017 Sunset International Wine Competition)

Terroir Cellars 2015 Pays d’Oc, France Cabernet Sauvignon-Petit Verdot

Our Terroir Cellars 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon-Petit Verdot is a blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Petit Verdot from Pays d’Oc in the famed Languedoc region of France. This wine was aged in oak barrels to build extra layers of flavors and complexity. The Cabernet Sauvignon and the Petit Verdot are both very aromatic and develop ripe strawberry and blueberry aromas in the nose. Toward the finish, toasted oak showcases mocha and vanilla flavors. This wine is rich in color and intensity, as this was a successful vintage in this part of France.

BRONZE MEDAL (2017 New York International Wine Competition)

Artisan 5 2014 North Coast Masterpiece

Our flagship Artisan 5 2014 North Coast Masterpiece is a blend comprised of 42% Cabernet Sauvignon, 42% Merlot and 16% Cabernet Franc. It has a deep, dark robe resulting from an extended maceration during fermentation and careful ageing in oak barrels. The nose displays complex aromas with a combination of prune, blueberry and blackberry. The second nose reveals more aromas of vanilla, toasted oak, cigar box, savory characters and spicy notes of cinnamon and pepper.

 

BRONZE MEDAL (2017 New York International Wine Competition)

Fleur Bleu California Seven Petals Blend

This fan-favorite is comprised of 35% Zinfandel, 25% Syrah, 15% Malbec, 9% Merlot, 9% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Petite Sirah and 3% Cabernet Franc. These are some of our best 2013 and 2014 wines. The nose is rich and full of black cherry, prune and blackberry aromas. Notes of vanilla, toasted oak, leather, cigar box and spices such as cinnamon and pepper are later revealed.

 

BRONZE MEDAL (2017 Sunset International Wine Competition)

Artisan 5 2013 North Coast Masterpiece

Our Artisan 5 2013 Masterpiece was produced using fruit from three prestigious North Coast AVA’s. This blend is 85% Cabernet Franc and 15% Cabernet Sauvignon. Cabernet Franc is well-represented with 60% from Lake County and 25% from Alexander Valley in Sonoma County. The palate of toasted flavors is one of the richest we have ever had in recent years at WineShop At Home. The mouth provides a round, silky, tannic structure in the attack. The French and American oak barrels play an immense role in the quality of this wine.
