Full bodied with aromas of black currant, red cherry, dried cranberries and subtle notes of tobacco and dark chocolate. Well-structured with bright acidity and balanced firm tannins. Flavors of plum, black currant, raspberry, and cocoa carry through to its delightful finish. Bring on the meats!
A tantalizing array of aromas and flavors. Pale golden in color it entices with aromas of green apple, citrus blossoms, pear and hints of vanilla bean. This medium bodied Chardonnay is silky on the palate with bright acidity and a rich, creamy texture flavors of apricot, baked pear and citrus rounding out the palate. Thoroughly satisfying!
This classic Russian River Pinot Noir leads with vibrant aromas of Bing cherry, cranberry and red apple skin. Subtle hints of vanilla, white sage and forest floor provide added depth and complexity. The mouthfeel exhibits a balance of juicy fruit, bright acid, and soft tannin with a lingering finish with echoes of cherry and raspberry. We're loving this!
