2015 Capture Innovant Red Wine...$34.99
Compare to $49.99 at Wine.com
Ripe, sexy, and voluptuous, the 2015 Innovant Red Wine is the entry-level blend from the estate based on 90% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Merlot brought up in 50% new French oak. Crème de cassis, tobacco leaf, lead pencil and spice notes give way to a medium to full-bodied wine that has sweet, rounded tannin, plenty of fruit, and a good finish.
Rated 91/100 Jeb Dunnuck
Composed of 90% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Merlot, the 2015 Red Wine Innovant has a deep garnet-purple color with a nose of ripe plums, crushed black currants and black berries with touches of bay leaves and menthol. Medium-bodied, tightly knit and with a firm structure of grainy tannins and electric freshness, it finishes on a lovely mineral note. 781 cases produced.

2013 Capture Harmonie Red Wine...$34.99
Lowest price on Wine Searcher is $59.99
One of the gems in this report is the 2013 Harmonie Red Wine (85% Cabernet Franc, 9% Merlot and the balance Cabernet Sauvignon). Sourced almost all from the Alexander Mountain Estate and aged in 20% new French oak, its singular purple color is followed by an incredible bouquet of crème de cassis, black cherries, damp earth, and spring flowers. This sensational red hits the palate with a huge, opulent texture, perfect balance, and ultra-fine tannin. Count me impressed by this quintessential expression of Cabernet Franc from Sonoma. It’s straight up awesome today yet is going to keep for two decades or more.
