Premium Wine for Your Holiday Table

It’s Alpha Omega


I taste a lot of California wine in any given year. There are so many impressive California wines out there, but this producer brought my understanding of wine’s possibilities to new heights in 2017. These wines bring new meanings to overused terms like 'complexity' and 'depth’. Wine that can impart this kind of sensory experience is worthy of deep discussion. It’s a great time to visit the Napa Valley. When you do, I encourage you to stop by Alpha Omega. These are superior quality wines that warrant their price point.

Alpha Omega Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2014

Surprisingly delicate aromas of lavender and violet with soft black cherry and blackberry notes, dark plum and a bit of earth. Dense and rich palate of dark blackberry and black currant fruit, thick dark chocolate and leather notes, an earthy backbone and pleasingly structured tannins, a touch of heat today but this will develop nicely for years to come. Finishes clean and flavorful with rich berry notes, vanilla and oak. 91 pts.

Alpha Omega ERA Napa Valley 2014

Dark blackberry, rich toast and vanilla. On the nose black currant and soft floral spice. Blueberry pie and baking spice on the palate, thick tannin and dry warm earth, even a bit of red fruit coming through - cherry, raspberry and light plum notes with a tartness that’s redolent of plum paste and a finish of chewy tannin and oak spice.
90 pts.

Alpha Omega Proprietary Red Wine Napa 2014

Dark, plummy aromas of blackberry and black currant preserves with a note of licorice and milk chocolate. Juicy, refreshing and full of lively fruit flavors of ripe cherry, cranberry and raspberry, notes of dark chocolate and resinous earth, thick tannins and a blueberry and cream freshness towards the finish that is cool, textured and spicy. 91 pts.

Alpha Omega Chardonnay Napa Valley 2014

Cool, and inviting on the nose with fresh and light peach and apple aromas with excellent depth and lightly floral dried apricot notes. In the mouth this is beautiful and elegant with fruit notes of peach, fresh melon, pineapple and green apple. Juicy and expansive on the palate with creamy vanilla and oak notes coming in strong on the very long finish. Creamy and refreshing. 93 pts.

Alpha Omega Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville Napa Valley 2014

On the palate, this is full of rich fruit notes of blackberry preserves and plum with mixed baking spice and juicy black currant fruit.
