Spotlight on Lambert Bridge


Pure Luxury had the pleasure to taste wines from Lambert Bridge when Tony Giovanzana, Director of Retail Operations, and Colleen Cavan, Business Development & Special Events Manager, hosted a special tasting for our reservations and sales team.

Our tasting began with the refreshing, lush, 2008 Viognier, Bevill Vineyard, Dry Creek Valley. This one of three Rhone white varietals had a soft, silky texture and can be chilled before serving. Tony, who is also a chef, recommended enjoying this wine with spicy foods.

Next was the 2007 Chardonnay, Sonoma County. This barrel aged and fermented Chardonnay had a divine buttery texture and a balance of oak with a hint of vanilla. It was recommended this wine be paired with earthy foods, such as mushrooms, light seafoods, and most meats.

Our next wine was the 2007 Zinfandel, Forchini Vineyards, Dry Creek Valley. This amazing Zinfandel spends 14 months in new and one year old barrels before spending another 11 months in the bottle. The result is soft, supple tannins, and the aroma and flavor of red cherry and raspberry. This wine pairs wonderfully with hearty red meat or is delightful with wild fowl such as duck with a bright berry sauce.


Our private tasting ended with a 2005 Limited Selection Cabernet Sauvignon, Sonoma County. This deep, dark, Cabernet Sauvignon takes 4 years to create! Consisting of 98% Cabernet, 1% Merlot, and 1% Petite Verdot, this is a wonderfully complex wine. The ripe, supple, soft tannins combine perfectly with the fruit of this wine.

Colleen and Tony provided a perfect example of the expertise the team at Lambert Bridge provides to their clients. Lambert Bridge wines are only available at the winery and on their website. Pure Luxury is thrilled to announce a partnership with Lambert Bridge in a new package that will be released next month! Soon, our clients will be able to enjoy the powerful, elegant, well-balanced wines of Lambert Bridge in Pure Luxury!
