Special like this annual evening, this wine is a limited-production proprietary blend of Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cab Franc and Petite Sirah from specific Sonoma County appellations. ($39) Pairing: Snow Caps Candy

2013 Director’s Cut Cabernet Sauvignon: Decadent and complex, this wine has notes of oak. Aged in French Barrels, this wine will develop beautifully over the years, but is also drinkable now. ($29) Pairing: Licorice Wheels 

2014 Director’s Cut Chardonnay: This wine is full bodied with notes of oak and spice. Sourced from the Russian River Valley, one of Sonoma’s premier Chardonnay growing regions. ($23) Pairing: Salted Soft Pretzel with Cheese
