December Urban Connoisseur: Holiday Hits

With three wines from our BIPOC Collection, including a sparkler, there’s a lot to be thankful for - including how incredible these wines are! Spread the joy of wine and celebrate with The Urban Grape!

NV Brendel “Young Leon” Sparkling Rosé (Napa Valley, California)
100% organically-farmed Grignolino from the supremely talented hands of Cassandra Felix! A new addition to our BIPOC Collection, this stunning rosé sparkler shows elegant aromas of white strawberry, rhubarb, and mandarin orange zest. Bubbles work with almost all foods, but this wine is so crushable it probably won’t make it that far!

*6W* 2020 Kara Tara Chardonnay (Western Cape, South Africa)
Talk about flavor! Named for a river which runs through the winemaker’s hometown in South Africa, the 2020 Kara Tara Chardonnay is exploding with flavors of ripe peach, white grapefruit, lemon, and a hint of almond, with a long, mineral-driven finish. This wine is a natural pairing with holiday food, especially roasted vegetables and turkey.

*4R* 2017 Robert Foley Charbono (Napa Valley, California)
It’s hard to overstate the impact and importance of Bob Foley on American wine. He’s founded wineries, consulted for dozens more, and has been on the scene since 1977! Charbono came to Napa in the 1880s, and this obscure varietal shows flavors of dried cherries, cranberries, and rose petals, with dusty tannins on the finish. This is fantastic with sharp cheeses like aged Gouda or Cheddars!

*8R* 2016 Kita Cabernet Sauvignon (Santa Ynez Valley, California)
It took quite a while to finally get Kitá Wines, but it was well worth the wait! One of the only Indigenous-owned wineries in the world, Kitá is special both in story and quality. Aromas of boysenberry, blackberry, sweet cedar, and tobacco dominate the nose, with a richly textured, flavorful mouthfeel. Flavors of dried herbs, cherries, and espresso abound on the palate, with a long, tasty finish.
