This non-malolactic Chardonnay has loads of pineapple, guava and exotic tropical fruit. A full-bodied fruit cocktail, it has terrific intensity and good underlying acidity giving it energy and precision.
With a nose of warm blackberries, plums and mulberries this Petit Verdot displays a deep garnet-purple color. The fragrance is earthy with just a hint of eucalyptus. It is full and firm in the mouth with chewy tannis and good length.
This terrific dessert wine was made from Alicante Bouschet grapes. The fermentation was interrupted with the addition of fortified alcohol at 8 Brix. The result is a wine with a lovely velvet texture and sweetness.
The 2016 Avignon is a white Rhone blend of the Viognier, Marsanne and Roussanne varietals. It is a wine worthy of being named after the Provence home of the 14th century Papacy on the left bank of the Rhone river.
This is a big, briary, beefy and muscular wine - full bodied with plenty of heady red and black fruits, tar, earth and pepper. With pure and rich fruit it remains on the palate for at least 45 seconds.
The 2015 Zuppa is a flight of fancy for the winemaker - Peter Story. He took liberties blending seven different varietals to make this Bordeaux-Tuscany-Rhone "flight of delight". Enjoy Zuppa with any red sauce pasta dish.
This Malbec is deep garnet colored. It leaps with cassis and is backed with plum and blackberry notes with a hint of dark chocolate and violets. Medium to full bodied - it has a grainy backbone and finishes on a spicy note.
This 2015 Sangiovese is good - all credit to our extended winemaking team for putting together a lovely, enticing wine. It is spicy with plenty of classic Sangiovese coupled with the buttressed black fruit of Cabernet Franc and Petite Syrah.
