VGS Chateau Potelle Winery:
A recent visitor to the Château Potelle Tasting Room, spotting a bottle of Zin VGS, exclaimed in delight "That's the one! We live in Seoul, Korea, and friends who were visiting from London brought us a bottle of wine that was unforgettable. I have traveled half way round the world to find it!" All of the VGS wines turn heads, make news, and earn Château Potelle it's place among the premium wineries in the United States.
Suggested Recipe Pairing presented by
Coconut Rice Sweet Potato Cheesecake

RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.

This is a Gold Medal Wine Club Platinum Series selection. The 2004 Chateau Potelle Cabernet Sauvignon VGS – “Very Good Stuff ” – sees an extraordinary influence from its rocky mountain vineyard site that sets it apart from classic Napa Valley winemaking styles. The Cabernet vines work hard on this unique terrain, and that combined with Chateau Potelle’s natural farming and winemaking talents, has truly produced an intense, refined, and forceful wine. Awarded 92 Points – Cellar Selection by Wine Enthusiast magazine, this focused, dense Cabernet Sauvignon has more depth than a typical valley floor wine, and effortlessly fills the mouth with friendly, complex rich fruit flavors. Essences of red berries, chocolate, liquorices and spices evolve on the palate, and as the wine opens, new dimensions and taste sensations deliciously develop in the glass. Try pairing the full-bodied 2004 Chateau Potelle Cabernet Sauvignon VGS with tender steaks, lamb chops, and roast beef. Aged 22 months in oak. 88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Merlot. Enjoy now until 2014.

Wine Tasting NotesOur Cabernet Sauvignon VGS offers great intensity, personality and beautiful complexity. The nose is rich, deep and complex presenting redberry, mint, licorice, anis, black pepper and hints of game aromas. All of which are elevated by an elegant integration of French oak and chewy fine-grained tannins.

Blend: 88% Cabernet, 12% Merlot "The 2004 VGS Cabernet is rounder than the 2003. It fills the mouth with friendly, complex rich flavors which begin with red berries and evolve towards chocolate, licorice and spices. I left the wine to aerate in

2004 VGS Cabernet is rounder than 2003. It fills your mouth with friendly, complex rich flavors which begin with red berries and evolve towards chocolate, liquorices and spices. Our mountain Cabernet has a more focused and dense structure, more depth
