Bishop’s Peak is a sort of second label for the esteemed Central Coast winery, Talley. This Cabernet is a great buy for under twenty bucks, showing ripe, flavorful blackberries, cherries and currants, with a completely dry finish and an extra layer of sophistication.
A huge, kick butt Zinfandel, packed with sweet berry, bacon, black pepper and smoky cedar flavors. There’s absolutely nothing shy about it. Packs a real punch all the way through to the spicy finish. Good price for a Sonoma Zin this classic.
This is Geyser Peak’s best Merlot in quite a while, a wine of real elegance and charm despite the everyday price. The cherry, red currant and oak flavors are plump, with a pleasant earthiness, and the mouthfeel is gentle in tannins. Decant for an hour before pouring.
A Bordeaux-style blend from the extra barrels in the multi-wine Long Shadows lineup, this nicely proportioned wine includes 54% Cabernet Sauvignon, 24% Merlot, and smaller amounts of Cab Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec. Superb vineyard sources—Weinbau, Wallula, Champoux and StoneTree—along with aging in new French oak marks this as a wine with high-end aspirations…
This is a complex wine that shows sweet berry fruits, ripe tannins and new wood flavors. It is dense and chewy while also being full of rich fruits. This is a wine for aging, although its smooth character suggests it will age relatively quickly.
