We represent a collection of hard-to-find, small production wineries from Napa Valley and Sonoma.
Originally from North Hero, Vermont, Spencer earned his Bachelor of Science Degree at the University of Vermont in the study of dendrology (trees) and ornithology (birds). While most of his friends were sampling beers and pizza, Spencer developed a love of fine food and wine. In 1998, he left the Champlain Valley for Napa Valley and worked for four years at Franciscan Estate as their Sommelier and later as a California Sales Manager at Beaucanon Winery. He co-founded S2 Wines with Sam Sharp in 2004.
Born and raised in New York City, Sam moved to Napa Valley in 1996 by way of Colorado. A part time job in the tasting room at Clos Du Val Winery led to almost nine years with the company, first as Tasting Room Manager followed by a stint as Bay Area Sales Representative. He co-founded S2 Wines with Spencer Dubuque in 2004.
Fourth Leaf by Rob and Angelina - Starting with a foundation instilled in them at a very young age by their Grandfathers, Rob and Angelina Mondavi were destined to become winemakers. Their endless stories began not only around family dinners, but also in the vineyards and the winery cellars. They created Fourth Leaf as an effort to bring two sides of our family back together to continue their heritage and pass it onto the 5th Generation; some might say they are closing the circle.
As cousins, and now business partners, the hurdles they have each overcome have been monumental. Much like their grandfathers, there is no doubt they have the same passion for the wine industry. That being said, it is with great joy to announce the release of their second vintage, the 2012 Fourth Leaf Cabernet Sauvignon.
A spectacular vintage that rivals some of the best, the 2012 is an exuberant, full bodied 100% Cabernet Sauvignon sourced from our family's famed mountain top regions of Atlas Peak and Howell Mountain. It boasts a bouquet of ripe raspberry, Bing cherry, fresh blackberry and cassis. The vibrant fruit notes are accompanied with hints of semi-dark chocolate, vanilla, and exotic spices of cardamom and green tea. A densely layered palate compliments the aromas with freshly harvested blueberries, cherries and red raspberries, finishing with long finessed vanilla bean and creamy tannins. www.fourthleafwines.com
