Granny Smith apple, wet chalk, toasty, savory French oak aromas, hint of browned butter, but the oak treatment is elegant enough to allow a lemon-blossom, floral character to emerge in the wine’s nose.
Pure and focused with tangerine flesh, peach skin, subtle white flowers / citrus blossom, saline, chalk, and granite. Focused and nervey from the oldest Pinot Blanc vines (and a few Melon de Bourgogne) in California, with a touch more structure / acid / verve than previous vintages. Bright and dry with wonderful stone-fruit persistence, mouth-cleansing freshness. Fantastic either as a cocktail wine, Summer Sipper, wine for the lake or the ocean (boating), or with all the food listed on the details page!
'Dead to rights' classic Santa Maria Valley Pinot Noir: Brambly, peppery bright and ripe cherry fruit is insanely versatile with food. Safe to match with salmon, pork, chicken, lighter beef and game dishes such as tri-tip, quail, venison.
A true classic Paso Robles Cab, fruity, dense and luscious on the attack with viscous and ripe berry flavors, shows great depth of flavor and admirable structure. Pairs well with ribeye or New York Steak grilled over red oak or pecan wood.
Intoxicating, ripe, red and blackberry fruit, and cherry pie leaps from the glass. Framed by hints of bramble, sage and saline minerals. Similar in aroma to a Petite Sirah with those big, ripe berry aromas and tannins dense enough to smell.
