Producer Description

Calvet, one of the oldest French wine brands in the world, was founded in 1818 by Jean-Marie Calvet. Eldest son of Dr. Gabriel Calvet and Anne Seriziat, Jean-Marie was born in 1789 in Anse, a small village north of Lyon. From his mother, whose family owned vineyards in Tain-l’Hermitage in the Rhone Valley, Jean Marie inherited a passion for wine, founding Calvet in 1818 to commercialise the family’s wines. As Bordeaux was one of their biggest markets (Bordeaux negociants had the particular practice of blending Hermitage wines with Bordeaux wines to give the latter more color and body), Jean-Marie and his son Octave built warehouses in Bordeaux, opened an office in 1849, and expanded to Burgundy in 1870, to become the largest wine company in France in the 19th and most of the 20th century.While Calvet was sold in New York as early as 1882, its focus was primarily Europe, Argentina and Asia, and so its presence in the USA had all but disappeared by the late 1990s. Sixth generation negociant and direct descendant Jean-Christophe Calvet, and his eldest son Jean-Sebastien Calvet, in partnership with Les Grands Chais de France, are re-introducing Calvet back into the USA market with the release of Calvet Brut Rose in Spring 2017.Calvet Brut Rose is a sparkling wine from the Cremant de Bordeaux appellation and made with the methode champenoise. Bordeaux has produced sparkling wines for well over 100 years, but the appellation Cremant de Bordeaux, was not made official until 1990. Production remains relatively small as only about 500 acres in the entire region of Bordeaux are devoted to producing cremants.

The Cabernet Sauvignon 1882 is round and consistent with a velvety palate and a sense of "completeness" from the well-developed linear tannins. Highly aromatic and immediately expressive, you'll find an alluring fragrance of plums, currants, dried cherries, cocoa, and violets followed by smooth flavors of red fruits with a hint of almond. The wine's complexity is made even more intriguing as the wine finishes with the subtle sweetness if white chocolate. If you choose to enjoy this vintage in its youth, we recommend decanting for one hour before serving, otherwise our 1882 Cabernet Sauvignon will continue to evolve and drink best in 5 to 10 years.

Product Description

Raspberry preserves, dried savory herb and mocha on the nose with hints of licorice, clove and vanilla. Expansive on the fore palate, building to a dense and rich mid palate with strong notes of ripe fruit and baking spices. Long, lingering nish with hints of toasty oak and vanilla.

Brand Description

There are no shortcuts to making memorable wine. It requires focus, dedication and, some say, 10,000 hours of practice to become an expert at crafting this drinkable art form. Will you be able to taste the decades of passion that go into each bottle? Instantly.

Ripe strawberry notes along with delicate floral and rose petal aromas. Fruit-forward notes of fresh raspberry, strawberry, and red cherry. Pleasant mouthfeel with balanced acidity and sweetness.?

Description

winemaker Bob Blue selected fruit from MendocinoCounty and Santa Clara Valley, a very old California appellation south of SanFrancisco Bay. The resulting wine is a perfect example of classic typicity,showing cherry fruit and blackcurrant with a touch of tobacco leaf. Ripe flavors ofZinfandel and Syrah were meticulously chosen and layered over this Cabernet,gifting midpalate, spice and rich color.This Cabernet was aged in new and used bourbon barrels, imparting complexity,depth and characteristics of charred vanilla, dried herbs and a hint of caramel.These wonderful flavor notes are specific to the bourbon barrel aging process.In true 1000 Stories form, this wine closes on a delightfully smooth andmemorable finish.

The mighty buffalo is an iconic symbol of American heritage, a heritage woven with one thousand stories, unique traditions, and a pioneering spirit. Our country's history of hard work and tenacity lives on today in each of us and continues to be at the essence of America's character. This is the inspiration for 1,000 Stories, a unique wine aged in bourbon barrels-a reflection of our winemakers' pioneering spirits. It's not a quick process, but crafting by hand to meet exacting standards seldom is.
