George IV Wines stocks an array of fruits of the vines culled from a mighty roster of experienced winemakers and vineyards. At George IV Wines, “getting a cab” means sipping a cabernet ($75/bottle) made with grapes plucked from the Rutherford region of Napa Valley with tasty hints of cherry, oak, and chocolate fudge in each sip, as opposed to sitting in traffic and sniffing at questionable upholstery. Aged 23 months in French oak, the winery’s pinot noir ($52/bottle) fills glasses with a silky purple kaleidoscope of taste-bud tantalization, and whites such as the sauvignon blanc ($28/bottle), which melds the best qualities of New Zealand and Napa wines into a single bottle, also draw attention from glass swirlers. George IV Wines’ grape-crushing crew has accrued bronze medals for its pinot noir and cabernet sauvignon at the 2010 San Francisco International Wine Competition, as well as Best Grape Kool-Aid accolades.
