The world is (not) ending… But it IS selling out fast!

Jonathan Maltus Jonathan Maltus created his second pool of new wines from some amazing vineyards in the Napa Valley. The entire production of his previous World’s End offerings entirely sold out within a matter of months! (I have a small handful reserved if you are quick to give me a call) That is a strong testament to the quality of these wines and this production is sure to go quickly as well. Not withstanding the high demand, these wines are still very price friendly! Jonathan produces wines on three continents (Europe, Australia and North America), emphasizing on small lots (high quality). French wine making with a California “twist.”

Worlds End 2009 "Little Sister" MerlotWorld’s End 2009 “Little Sister” Merlot – Coombsville Vineyard
Coombsville Napa Valley
Retail 45.99 – GGWC 39.99

This wine is a blend of 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Sauvignon sourced from the great Coombsville vineyard (close to Caldwell).  The wine is made in typical Maltus (French) style.   On the nose one encounters ripe plums, black cherries, vanilla and a touch of spice.  Rich, full in body and loaded with red stone fruit.  The wine is elegant and very well-balanced with soft, silky tannins rounding out this great wine.  Long lasting finish.

Coombsville & Sugarloaf Mountain Vineyards Napa Valley.
Retail 45.99 – GGWC 39.99

The fruit source for this wine is the base for many Napa Valley CULT wines, so at 39.99 you are in for a “steal”

Succulent black fruit jumps out of the glass on impact.   On the palate I encountered black currants, black cherries, exotic spices and a touch of toasty vanilla.  Full in body this youngster is a young bull .  Well-structured with a firm backbone, yet very elegant and smooth on the palate.  The wine finishes with long lingering  silky tannins.

As I mentioned earlier, I have just a few remaining bottles of the previous, sold-out World’s End release. Call me for availability or visit my website to place an order.
