Narmada Yash-Vir 2010 is made with the classic Bordeaux grapes: Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc. It is a compelling wine, rich mahogany in color with evocative aromas of black fruits and cedar. On the palate, deep black cherry and cassis notes are etched with nuances of sage and bayleaf. Medium tannin and vibrant acidity contribute to the lingering, well-structured finish.
Food affinities include dishes such as Lamb Rogan Josh; Seared Duck Breast with Caramelized Turnips; and Mushroom "Steak" with Lentils, Smoked Paprika and Garlic Cream.

VARIETAL WINES, DISTINCT BLENDS FROM SELECT VINEYARDS, WHICH COME FROM THE BEST PARTS OF MENDOZA. EACH BATCH IS HARVESTED SEPARATELY AT DIFFERENT TIMES, WITH THE GOAL OF ACHIEVING ELEGANCE AND EXCELLENCE IN THE WINE.
Fresh and highly aromatic with concentrated layers of blackberry, blueberry and tobacco taking centre stage. High-altitude fruit combines with native yeasts to bring a rich, earthy wine carrying a fuller body, round tannins and a long, engaging finish.
Château Famaey Malbec, Cahors, France (2017)
Château Famaey is first and foremost the story of Luc and Marc, two braves Belgian Childhood friends, who shared the same dream : producing a wine issued from a rich ‘Terroir’ in the magnificent region of Cahors. This dream came true when they became proprietors of this 33 hectares vineyard, situated on the 2nd and 3rd Terraces of the Lot Valley. Then Maarten, son of Luc to whom the father’s passion has been passed on, joined the duo to take on the role of ‘Maître de Chai’. He collaborates with one of the best oenologist of the region, in the constant desire to seek quality and evolution.
Ripe, smoky blackberry flavors dominate this perfumed wine. The 18 months in wood have added to the dry core of tannins while leaving room for the juicy fruits. This wine will age and soften the tannins.
This wine is created to honor Pandit, founder of Narmada, and Sudha’s father, Bhalachandra. Legacy is made with Vidal Blanc and Chardonel grapes with a touch of mango. Crisp yet creamy and sweet, this decidant wine is bursting with juicy mango flavor. We will donate a portion of our sales to charitites that fight cancer which will help the countless others who battle cancer every year.
Embellished with a subtle hint of boxwood and rose, vivacious blackberry flavor dominates in this captivating wine. Great chilled, or over crushed ice! Pair with either savory dishes like Five-Spice Muscovy Duck Breast; Chicken Mole, or sweet choices like Chocolate Lava Cake with Blackberry Wine Sauce.
Attractive purple color shows off the freshness of this Cabernet Sauvignon-dominant meritage blend. Lively fruit-forward flavors of plum, currant and blackberry are seasoned by spicy oak and polished tannin. Invigorating finish; fine balance promises to improve with age. Pair with: pan-roasted venison with creamy baked potato and celeriac; shiitake and baby bella mushroom risotto; boeuf bourguignon (red wine and mushrooms).
“Ultra varietal, bright red fruit nose; vanilla/oak, slight green leaf mid-palate; long varietal finish; great balance and crisp. The poster child for cool climate Cabernet Franc.”
—Master Sommelier David Stevens
Aromas suggest spice and earth underpinned by a hint of violet. On the palate, full and rich, laden with berry, clove and black pepper. Good acidity and tannic grip ensure a long-lived wine. Finish is earthy, rounded with coffee and beguiling violet nuances.
Pair with wild mushroom risotto; vegetable jalfrezi; Indian-spiced lamb chops.
Reflection is the driest of Narmada's three styles of chambourcin. The 2014 vintage, enhanced with a touch of tannat, petit verdot, and cabernet franc, is rich and full-bodied. Aged in French and American oak for 20 months, the wine shows good color, full flavor and a smooth finish. Notes of black cherry fruit and plum dance on the palate.
Pair with roast turkey with dressing, Tuscan steak with tomato-balsamic-shallot relish, manicotti with roasted tomato-garlic sauce.
A rich, concentrated wine with a haunting bouquet of violets and freshly-cracked black pepper. Peppery cassis fruit on the palate is enhanced by subtle herbal notes and graceful tannin. 89% Petit Verdot/11% Tannat
