An impressive effort for cool-climate Cabernet Franc. Caramel, toffee and boysenberry scents grace the complex nose while focused blackberry takes over in the mouth. Crisp and medium-weight, it picks up a liquorice accent on the finish. Drink or hold a year or two for more complexity.
High-toned aromas of cherry cola and berry preserves are enticing on this concentrated, fruit-forward Pinot Noir. The palate is suppple with ripe cherry flavor, tinged with a spray of violets and firm, yet chalky, tannins.
Quite earthy in profile with hints of smoke, petroleum and fresh green herbs, there’s a distinct minerality in this off-dry Riesling that’s compelling. Brisk lime-juice acidity and a hint of citrus rind bitterness accentuates the dry finish.
Hints of spice, dried herb and black tea lend an elegant earthiness to concentrated, but crisp, black cherry and berry flavors on this Cabernet Franc. The palate is full bodied but structured with a flurry of soft tannins that linger on the finish.
Earthy tones of smoke and hazelnuts give way to bright white peach and grapefruit notes on the nose and palate of this fruitful Pinot Gris. Off dry in style, it’s a tad sugary on the midpalate, but finishes fairly dry with a refreshing shower of lemony acidity. Drink now.
Big spice and blackberry/cherry aromas start this wine out right, and on the palate, a rustic underlay of tobacco and pepper adds character. Good structure and acidity add a food-friendly edge. A wine that is easy to drink and well made.
