Hello alcohol and black cherry liqueur. A nicely made and compelling Syrah this is, although the alcohol is intense. The wine has mighty tannins and is very fruity, with an added note of black licorice. The peppery finish will make you want more.
This is dark in color and plush, with rustic tannins. It’s beautifully crafted, giving off perfumed notes of violet, dried cherry and leather. Fullbodied, it has a lingering spice note.
Deep purple in color with a yeasty nose, this Zin from the southern end of the Sierra Foothills is structured and intense, dry and more spicy than fruity, with plenty of savory pepper and chocolate throughout. Its 15.5% alcohol level adds a whole other layer of size. Pair with some serious barbecue.
A crisp Semillon with dense, fleshy fig flavor, a pronounced woodiness and impressively long finish. This is another high-quality vintage of the wine for Chatom, which consistently produces good examples of Sierra Foothills Semillon.
Polished and smooth, with fancy cocoa, blackberry, cherry and coffee flavors that are well-ripened and long-lasting. The tannins are gentle, with good acidity. Turns candy sweet on the finish.
A blend heavily weighted toward Merlot and Syrah, with smaller amounts of Petite Sirah, Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec, this red blend is a nice mix of dry cranberry and raspberry flavors, with dry tannins and a long finish.
