In honor of Star Wars Day, we will be pouring wines from Skywalker Vineyards. From the brilliant imagination of George Lucas, Skywalker Vineyards came from his vision for a new class of wine craft at the summit of his home at Skywalker Ranch in Marin County. These wines were given the similar meticulous treatment he gave to the movies; picturesque landscapes, best cast of people, and innovations with old world craftsmanship. We didn’t forget about Cinco de Mayo! We will also be pouring wines from LA Cetto from Valle de Guadalupe in Baja California, Mexico. The wines are going on three generations strong from the most unlikely place. These wines will surprise you! So come to South Glendale. The force is strong in us!
2014 Skywalker Pinot Noir Rosé
A beautiful watermelon hue, made from the Estate Pinot Noir vineyard. The aromas of wild strawberry and rhubarb meld with hints of lemon zest. The first taste finds bright crisp flavors of tart cherry and clean minerality. The wine pairs perfectly with a nice soft brie and your favorite prosciutto.
2012 Skywalker Sommita Pinot Noir
“Pleasantly complex, supple and layered, with ripe blueberry, wild berry, spice, licorice and cedar notes. Ends clean and pure. Drink now through 2018.” – Wine Spectator
2012 Skyalker Sommita Pinot Noir
Highly aromatic with clove, warm forest berries like raspberries and blueberries, that leads toward a spicy and red fruit center. Texturally coating and lavish on the palate but remains firm with bright Marin County acidity on the finish. Very primary upon release and will develop added layers and complexity with bottle aging.
2012 Skywalker Pinot Noir Marin County
Stunning ruby and violet color, speaks to full maturity and a great site. Aromatics are extremely generous in 2012, warm spice, dark fruits of cherry and raspberry, and an attack of supremely dense and sweet fruits followed by a hedonistic, saturated finish that is both tasting and delicate. Cellared in pristine conditions, the 2012 Skywalker Pinot Noir will last a decade or more.
2013 L.A. Cetto Petite Sirah
Intense red pomegranate with violet hues of great clarity; aromas of red fruits like red guava and blackberries with floral notes, blackberry and Jamaica. Notes of forest and truffle.
2014 L.A. Cetto Cabernet Sauvignon
Clean and bright ruby red color; aromas of Jamaica, redcurrant, red fruits like plum and raspberry. Soft tannins, balanced and fruity.
