Intensely sweet, this is honey soft, rich in apricot, gingerbread crumble, crème brûlée and vanilla flavors, and crisp in acidity. The grapes were an astonishing 43% of brix at harvest.
The deep gold color here suggests age, as do the soft, vaguely oxidized flavors. Still, it shows some nice vanilla and baked apple notes, as well as slight chalk accents, on its toasty oak frame. Drink now.
Atypical for a California Viognier, with citrus and honey flavors. You might mistake it for a Sauvignon Blanc, but it’s nonetheless tasty and refreshing. Polished, rich and balanced. Serve it well chilled with a mango salsa.
A Rhône-Bordeaux blend of Syrah, Cab Sauvignon, Cab Franc and Merlot. Soft, simple and sweet; tastes like melted milk chocolate infused with blackberry essence, sprinkled with cinnamon sugar and vanilla.
Fruity aromas are distant but clean. Orange, lemon and lime define the tart palate, and it's got a touch of powdered orange drink in there, too. High acidity drives this snappy, tart package.
