Union Sacre Riesling Fraulein San Luis Obispo 2016 Product #32672 (In Stock)
Union Sacre Riesling Fraulein San Luis Obispo 2016 Union Sacre Riesling Fraulein San Luis Obispo 2016

Oh, man - is this wine good.  At 13.3% and dry, it's tempting to reference  Alsace here.  But this unique - like the two friends who created this winery, a blend of American energy and French sophistication.  Clear as a bell aromas and flavors of fresh lime, candied lime peel, stone fruits, and crushed rock jump out at you before tailing away gracefully on a long, minerally, dry and citrus-pithy finish.  As good as American Riesling gets and absurdly cheap.

Union Sacre Gewurtztraminer Belle De Nuit 2016 Product #32671 (In Stock)
Union Sacre Gewurtztraminer Belle De Nuit 2016 Union Sacre Gewurtztraminer Belle De Nuit 2016

Xavier Arnaudin, winemaker  and Philip Muzzy, partner, created this tiny - but soon to be very important! - winery to make wines that marry French sophistication with American boisterous fun. Which is what you'll find here.  This is 100% Gewurtz that's picked up a lightly rosey hue from the super ripe skins and complexity from half aging in neutral barrel. The magic is how this is wonderfully Gewurtz - aromatic, loaded with lychee, rose petal, ginger and spice - but also wonderfully fresh and dry. Cannot recommend this one highly enough!

Union Sacre Cabernet Sauvignon Le Confident 2016 Product #32833 (In Stock)
Union Sacre Cabernet Sauvignon Le Confident 2016 Union Sacre Cabernet Sauvignon Le Confident 2016

The bottom-line here is simple:  buy this glorious California Cabernet while you can at these crazy low prices.  Because this winery and wine are going to pop up on critics’ radar soon enough, and then you’ll struggle to find (and possibly afford) it.  Union Sacre is a fairly new venture of Michigan-born Philip Muzzy and France’s Xavier Arnaudin.  What’s most exciting about this project is how Philip and Xavier don’t try to do too much (well, the labels are extravagant, but they work). 

This is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from a great 2016 harvest in Santa Barbara’s Happy Canyon AVA.  It delivers genuinely soaring aromas of classic Cabernet fresh black currant, crushed raspberry, sweet spice, and dusty dried herb.  It’s richly textured in the mouth and fully ripe, but remains phenomenally pure, silky and elegant.  Bold flavors of crushed black berries, cassis, spice, tobacco and cedar get an exotic lift of burnt orange peel, filling your mouth through the middle and continuing to pump out and linger over a long, silky  smooth, finish.  Delicious and easy to drink tonight, Le Confident will just get better over the next 5-10 years.  By which time fame and market forces will have caught up with this exciting new winery and prices will be much, much, higher.

Union Sacre Syrah Cabernet Sauvignon Le Clandestin 2015 Product #32759 (In Stock)
Union Sacre Syrah Cabernet Sauvignon Le Clandestin 2015 Union Sacre Syrah Cabernet Sauvignon Le Clandestin 2015

It's just a matter of time before Union Sacre is christened the "Hot New California Winery" by the critics.  Until then, enjoy these amazing wines at headscratchingly low prices.  A bold blend of dark-fruited Santa Barbara Syrah with ripe, red-fruited, Cabernet Sauvignon given enough time in oak to meld and mellow without turning into an oaky mess.  Black currant, fresh plum and dark chocolate aromas and flavors dominate with woodsy blueberry notes adding interest on the soft, supple, finish.  Only 169 cases made.  A very nice wine.
