1 bottle each of the following:
Trione Russian River Valley Sauvignon Blanc - Sonoma, California, USA
clean and crisp Sauvignon Blanc shows what this grape is
capable of when grown in a warmer climate like Dry Creek
Valley. It shows highly tropical aromas of guava, mango, and
melon with ruby red grapefruit on top of jasmine flowers,
jalapeno pepper, cilantro, and honeysuckle notes. It shows
vibrant and pretty flavors indicative of wine from California.
Chardonnay - Napa Valley, California, USA
What "California Dreaming" wine pack would be complete without
Napa Valley Chardonnay? Certainly not this one! This is one of
the most popular wine styles in the world. They have great
expression of fruit, on a rich texture which is bolstered by
the use of new French oak barrels. When done well, Napa Valley
Chardonnay is powerfully beautiful. You will find aromas
reminiscent of baked apple, and pear with
preserved lemon and roasted pineapple along with notes of
caramel, vanilla, acacia, and fresh whipped cream. This is a
wine of decadence and elegance wrapped neatly into one bottle.
True Re:public Pinot Noir - California, USA
True re:public is a line of wines that are expressive of the distinct terroirs of Califorina. This refreshing Pinot Noir, sourced from vineyards throughout the state's best Pinot-growing regions, shows a great sense of its Cali heritage. It exhibits dark cherry, roasted pomegranate, and crushed strawberry on the attack, with intermingled notes of smoke, cherry licorice, and perfumed red flowers.

Cabernet Sauvignon - Napa
Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon has become known worldwide as
the pinnacle of the pure expression of this "King of
grapes". The eternal sunshine of California is the perfect
place for Cabernet Sauvignon to come to full ripeness and
make amazingly complex wines. They are deeply complex with
notes of sweet black currant, blackberry, and bluberry with
secondary flavors of toasted vanilla bean, mocha coffee,
mint, chocolate, and smoke.
