Gift the magic of VML to your family, friends, and colleagues this holiday season. With a beautiful selection of Russian River and Sonoma Coast Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Sparkling Wines, we have something special for every discerning fine wine lover on your list.
2018 San Remo Pinot Noir, 2019 Cresta Ridge Pinot Noir, and 2018 Ivywood Pinot Noir
We source grapes from some of the best spots throughout western Sonoma County, and are thrilled to shine a spotlight on these three exemplary vineyards. The San Remo Vineyard is located in the heart of the Middle Reach and is dry farmed, so the vines must fight and struggle, resulting in wines that are jammy and powerful. Cresta Ridge is located in Green Valley, a sub-appellation of the Russian River Valley that is particularly foggy, and the wine is powerful and masculine. Ivywood is close to the Pacific Ocean and the wine is complex yet balanced. Enjoy together for a field trip through one of the best Pinot Noir regions in the world.
2016 Blanc de Noir Sparkling and 2018 Sexton Pinot Noir
We can’t guarantee it, but when this Gift Set is opened some coastal fog may unfurl into the room. These two wines are a tribute to the Russian River Valley, and all you need to celebrate the season in style. Our Black Label Sparkling aromatics are complex, the tiny bubbles will tickle the palate, and the finish carries lovely apple tartness. The single vineyard Pinot Noir is an absolutely beautiful expression of Russian River fruit, with bright cherry and rose petal aromatics, strawberry fruit and umami flavors, and a lively finish. These wines are sure to bring holiday cheer to any lucky recipient.
2018 Earth Pinot Noir, 2018 Moon Pinot Noir, and 2018 Stars Pinot Noir
You really can gift someone the Earth, Moon and Stars! These three Russian River beauties exemplify why this appellation produces some of the finest wines in the world. The 2018 vintage was absolutely ideal- with cooler temperatures and moderate weather leading to a longer growing season. The Earth has lively strawberry, blackberry chocolate and spice flavors. The Moon is incredibly soft, with notes of cherry filling and vanilla wafer. And the Stars is dark and brooding with flavors of candied fruit and oak inspired vanilla. Look no further for the ultimate gift for all the Pinot Noir lovers in your life.
2018 Ivywood Chardonnay and 2018 Ivywood Pinot Noir
The Ivywood Vineyard, located less than 15 miles from the Pacific Ocean, is heavily influenced by the same natural forces that influence the Northern California coastline. The vineyard sits at 800 feet and, due to its proximity to the ocean, the vines struggle, leading to really complex and interesting wines. The 2018 vintage was no exception: the Chardonnay has aromatics of freesia, warm pear and baked apple pie and the palate is chamomile and tropical fruit. The Pinot Noir is delightfully complicated with wild herb, cherry cola, and jammy strawberry aromatics and dark fruit flavors. Together they are the perfect accompaniment to any holiday meal.
2018 Russian River Pinot Noir
They say the best things in life come in small boxes, but that is certainly not the case with this gorgeous bottle! This wine speaks the unique and beautiful language of the Russian River Valley, an area that rivals any for growing Pinot Noir, and the 2018 vintage is a perfect exemplar. The nose is super expressive, with notes of spices with an enticing balance of cherry fruit and earthy mushroom. The body is balanced with a structured fruit profile and it has a long and lingering finish. A rare bottling indeed- we only produced 200 of them.
