This Sonoma Coast offering shows an attractive nose of lemon, baked apple, ripe pear, butter, vanilla and sweet barrel spices. It’s open-knit on the palate with wonderful texture and a juicy core of creamy pear, apple, peach and elegant oak spices all lifted by zesty citrus notes on the finish. Lovely Chardonnay.
2012 was a great vintage in Oregon. The combination of low yields and constant warmth throughout the growing season, with little rain, produced ripe and elegant wines. This medium-bodied organic Pinot typifies said style. It starts off with cherry, cranberry, iron and toast qualities; then the plum, cocoa, earth, red flowers and spice chime in on the long finale. Tannins are suave, allowing for 5 years of cellaring.
Something to put on your birthday wish list or just to spoil yourself. A blend of 94% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Petit Verdot, 2% Cabernet Franc. Dense purple in colour with a spicy, blackcurrant and vanilla oak nose. Beautifully balanced and richly satisfying on the palate. Drinking well now but will cellar well.
Pale golden yellow with an orange tint. Seductive nose of pineapple and other tropical fruits; hints of honey and wet wool. Pleasant fruity taste, balanced but not especially harmonious in its flavour profile with a slightly oily texture. Finish is sharpened by acidity.
One of the best wines I’ve tasted from this winery. Straw-coloured with a spicy, barnyard nose signalling evident oak; more expressive on the palate with a spicy, green-pineapple flavour that lingers long.
Dense purple in colour with a nose of leather, plum and vanilla oak; full-bodied, fruity-earthy blackberry and plum flavours with a suggestion of tannin to give the wine structure and a warm alcoholic finish.
