Six Hats Western Cape Cabernet Sauvignon
Garnet with some purple on the rim. Nose : Ripe blackcurrant, plums and hints of dark mint chocolate. Palate: Medium bodied, with a gentle hint of oak, dark fruits with a pleasing aftertaste. A pendulum of tannin + fruit.

Mont Gravet Pays d'Herault Carignan Vieilles Vignes
This is made from old vines (60 to 80 years old) grown high in the hills of the Hérault region of the Languedoc in Southwest France and is the ideal blockbuster summer red wine! The nose is quite lush, filled with mixed red and black fruits in the foreground with backup support from hints of rose and a soupçon of vanilla. Ripe fruit balanced by more savory elements of goodness + grace.

PNK SALT, Ovum’s first Rose!

Ashes & Diamonds Rouge No.3 Napa Valley
Ashes & Diamonds Rouge is a blend of Bordeaux style varietals from select vineyards across Napa Valley. The variety of regions depicts a whole view of what Napa Valley represents as a single AVA - from thin, rugged soils to the thicker, rich soils of the valley floor. Rouge also marries multiple vintages as another tool in the art of blending, which delivers a more approachable wine earlier in its life. Kashy Khaledi gained his passion for wine from his parents founding Darioush Winery. The 40-acre property that is home to Ashes & Diamond consists of 55-acres planted to Merlot and Cabernet Franc. They also sell fruit to small local wineries. This Napa Valley Red is focused, with notes of dark cherry and secondary notes of cocoa dusting and spice. “The wine rests easy on the palate, with great tannic structure and a round, rich frame. An excellent Napa Valley Cabernet blend, more about structure than ripeness and alcohol.

Los Monteros Cava, Valencia, Spain
The undulating hills of the region reap the benefits of the nearby Mediterranean, with cold winters, hot summers, and warm westerly winds that make for ideal grape growing. Winemaker Juan José Muñoz stores his wines in rima (placed on their sides in rows to age) for at least nine months before bottling. The resulting fresh and fruity Cavas are an exceptional embodiment of Utiel-Requena's excellent terroir and prestigious winemaking heritage. This is a standout, small production sparkling wine. Citrus fruit flavors, pear and green apple combine with a creamy sensation for a balanced mouthfeel. The finish is light and refreshing with nice acidity. Drink this at your Derby party!

Carefully managed Oregon grapes are fermented using native, ‘wild’ yeasts to make a more complex wine and produce the greatest expression of the terroir. As the saying goes, "where there's a will, there's a way," and owner/winemaker Pam Walden is nothing if not willful. Her intention has always been to live life to the fullest, with a strong work ethic and independent spirit that embraces the unknown. The Pinot Blanc is a fresh, crisp white wine with a creaminess on the mid-palate, delicious with a creamy pasta, to be enjoyed on a hot summer night.
