What wine will you serve for Thanksgiving?

May we recommend the following wines for your Thanksgiving celebration...
The 2013 Cultivar Coombsville Syrah is a medium bodied wine with the perfect acidity to pair with your Thanksgiving meal of roasted turkey, classic sweet potatoes, and roasted chestnuts.

On the palate, it is rich and mouth filling with perfectly balanced tannins. $42.00 a bottle, $428 a case, $403 for club members.
 
The 2012 Cultivar Coombsville Cabernet Sauvignon has just the right amount of spice to pair perfectly with your savory Thanksgiving dishes, turkey or ham.

The 2013 Cultivar Oak Knoll Chardonnay is a pure expression of Chardonnay and pairs perfectly with a classic roasted turkey with all the trimmings. On the nose it has baked apples, pear and melon notes with nuances of spice and flower aromas. On the palate, it has beautiful weight and balance with a touch of richness. $28 a bottle, $296 a case, $278 a case for club members.

Rethinking your Thanksgiving meal?
Turkey Osso Buco

Looking for a less traditional turkey dish? Ready for something different? Try Turkey Osso Bucco made in our Cultivar Cabernet Sauvignon. Perfect for Fall! Here is the recipe.

6 turkey drum sticks; crosscut into osso buco - (have your butcher do it)
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 medium onions, chopped
2 medium carrots, peeled, chopped
2 celery stalks, chopped
6 garlic cloves, smashed
2 Tbsp. juniper berries, smashed
1 Tbsp. fennel seed, crushed
6 bay leaves
1/2 bunch parsley
1/2 bunch sage
1 750ml Cultivar Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
1 quart stock or broth (turkey, chicken or mushroom)

Heat a Dutch oven on high. While the pot is heating up, pat dry the osso buco legs with paper towels. Season the legs with salt and pepper. Add the oil to the Dutch oven. Once the oil begins to smoke, add the legs one at a time. Sear each side of the osso buco until a dark golden brown color. Remember, the more color the meat gets the more flavorful your sauce will be. Once all the pieces are seared, remove from the pot and add the onions, carrots, celery, garlic, juniper berries and fennel seed. Let sauté for 5 minutes with a lid on the pot. Next add the bay leaves, parsley, sage and cabernet sauvignon. Let the wine boil for 5 minutes, add the osso buco back to the pot and cover with stock. Bring to a simmer, cover with a lid and place into a 350 degree oven. Let cook in the oven for approximately 1 1/2 hours or until the osso buco is tender enough to cut with a fork. Remove the osso buco from the Dutch oven; strain the liquid into a different pot. On high heat, boil the liquid until it reduces to half of its original volume. Taste, season with salt and pepper. Pour the reduced liquid back over the osso buco. To plate, place generous scoop of stuffing on the plate, top with osso buco and ladle on some of the sauce.
Serves 6-8.

2013 Cultivar Oak Knoll Chardonnay 

Want to catch up with your best friend over a perfect bottle of wine?

Perfect for reminiscing, our 2013 Oak Knoll Chardonnay is a pure expression of Chardonnay. Comforting, friendly, natural, and just a bit sentimental, this Chardonnay delivers fruit on the nose and on the palate taking one back to an age where fresh pies were set on windowsills to cool. On the nose this perfect-for-Fall Chardonnay has baked apples, pear and melon notes with nuances of spice and flower aromas. On the palate the wine has beautiful weight and balance, being fermented in neutral oak barrels to add just a touch of richness. The palate delivers more baked apples and a touch of creme brûlée for a beautiful delicate finish.

As we roll into Dungeness Crab season here in San Francisco, the Cultivar Chardonnay is a perfect match.

Drink now and over the next two years.
 

2013 Oak Knoll Cabernet Franc

Better than your favorite television drama, our Cabernet Franc is mysterious, deep, romantic and just a little bit dangerous.

Our Cabernet Franc comes from the cooler growing region of Oak Knoll. We believe our Cabernet Franc has both characteristics of The Loire Valley and Bordeaux regions in France. The 2013 is deep dark red with a distinct brightness. On the nose, black cherry fruits are intertwined with notes of roses and violets, along with hints of tobacco and pepper. On the palate it is rich, medium to full bodied with great balance. The black cherry fruit follows from the nose to the palate with hints of plums and blueberries. The sweetness of the fruit is balanced with the perfect blend of vanilla and warm Asian spices. This wine has a long mouth finish that draws you back to the glass.

This is perfect with roasted game and rich Asian inspired dishes.

Drink now or over the next 5 years. 

$52/bottle
$530/case $499/club case


Available now only to Wine Club Members.
2013 Cultivar Coombsville Syrah

The ultimate expression of a classic with a twist!

Fresh and eclectic with a unique and distinct sense of purpose, this is the second Syrah offering from Cultivar and our first Syrah from the Coombsville appellation. The 2013 Coombsville Syrah shows a bold spectrum of deep red fruit varietals. Dark red raspberries and dark cherries seem to jump from the glass, along with notes of pretty roses and violets and aromas of allspice with a touch of vanilla.  On the palate it is rich and mouth filling. The tannins are perfectly balanced giving the red fruit its structure.

This is the perfect wine to share around the BBQ or paired with classic Fall dishes.

Savor now or over the next 5 years, if you can keep it that long without opening it.

$42/bottle
$428/case $403/club case


Available now to only Wine Club Members.

 

2012 Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon

Look out world! Cabernet from Howell Mountain has become known for its boldness, tannic structure, and intense fruit.

Deep, powerful, rich, intense, intelligent and decadent, our 2012 Cultivar Howell Mountain is all that and more: dark in color almost bordering on black, with a nose of dark cassis, currant, and blackberries. Intertwined with these powerful fruits are notes of cedar and wood smoke and hints of truffle-coated blackberries, licorice, and espresso. The distinct long finish on the palate and note of tannins on the top of your mouth will have you dreaming of mountain cabins and the great outdoors.

This Cabernet screams for a beautiful rib eye steak or to be decanted for this Christmas Holiday and paired with a perfectly standing rib roast.

While tempting to drink now, this wine will age for another 10 years, if you can keep your hands off of it in the cellar. 

$72/bottle
$734/case $691/club case

 

With the opening of your very first bottle of Cultivar Wine, we encourage you to explore your own dreams, share your own desires, and cultivate your own passions, with each and every sip in each and every shipment.
