Tasting Notes: A more elevated style of sauvignon blanc at this price point. Rich lemon custard notes on the nose, while the palate is full of white blossoms like orange and honeysuckles. The midpalate-to-finish notes of lemon zest wake you back up.
Tasting Notes: This is THE steak wine. Even the nose had charcoal and grilled notes. The palate is plump and filled with soy, umami and herb spices like oregano. Would be a people-pleaser at any barbeque or steak dinner.
Tasting Notes: The nose on this wine is pretty savory; notes of BBQ beef. On the palate it is soft, but not subtle. This dry red tastes of eucalyptus and fresh herbs, with a touch of blueberry, with hints of oak. Tannins are there, but not in your face. Ok, buy the glass, but shines with food.
Tasting Notes: A pure Carmenère wine, from vineyard sites cooled by their proximity to the Pacific Ocean, which helps maintain good acidity and freshness. A very deep ruby with touches of purple. The nose is dominated by black cherry and dark fruit, with subtle spice notes. The palate is well rounded, with the weight of the fruit balanced by the acidity.
Tasting Notes: A supple, well-balanced example of pinot noir. A great example of a fruit-forward style of pinot noir. With minimal oak contact, the weight is due to carefully harvested grapes from sustainably managed vineyards, and skilled winemaking. At this price, it's more than a great bargain.
Tasting Notes: Ripe passion fruit notes are given complexity, with a refreshing tartness that rides along with the juicy flavors from initial flavor attack to the lengthy finish. With layers and depth of fruit character, the savory notes bring it all together.
