Has very distinctive and powerful black-cherry fruit in the nose. Tastes very pure. This single-vineyard Merlot from Calistoga has real personality and style. A charming wine, with enough tannins to warrant short-term aging.
Delicious and refreshing, a dessert wine to have at the end of a great meal to revive the tastebuds. Zesty acidity frames mouthwateringly ripe tangerine, apricot honey, nectarine, vanilla and spice flavors.
Red fruit in the nose is accented by a little tomato, some juniper and blueberry, and a fair amount of barrel char. Features a mouth of leaner black cherry and tart plum. Finishes dry, and with mouth-coating tannins. Now it’s harmonious, but it could use some time to soften up.
Fulfills Sauvignon Blanc’s two basic duties: dryness and crispness. That’s good, but even better are the complex flavors of spearmint, fig, honeydew melon and vanilla. Irresistible.
Hard to believe this is an entirely stainless steel-made wine, because it’s so rich. Brims with bone-dry lemon, lime, grapefruit, green apple and passionfruit flavors, with a creamy, vanilla finish. What a great restaurant wine.
Decant this for a little while to let this air out and balance. Then you’ll find a flavorful, dry wine, with polished pink grapefruit, fig, vanilla and spice flavors and a crisp bite of citrusy acidity.
