Description2013 Estate Merlot: This Merlot has a beautiful ruby coloring with excellent consistency and clarity throughout. The nose is huge and very varietally correct, with notes of strawberry, toffee, and toasted nuts. The palate is full of wonderful fruit character with Pluot, Bing cherry, and wild strawberry. The huge fruit-forward drinking experience makes up for the lighter body.
2014 Estate Zinfandel: Full of jammy fruit and spice on the nose, with spiced cherry, black cherry, kola nut, chocolate, bramble, dark mixed spice, toasty oak, volcanic soil and black pepper. Juicy and bursting with flavor, with raspberry jam, blackberry preserve, plum, fig, raisin, cedar, chocolate, Bing cherry, spice, earth and black pepper.
2014 Estate Sy-rific-Cab: A blend of 60% Syrah and 40% Cabernet Sauvignon. Fresh blueberry, blackberry and raspberry lead the way. These are followed by jammy strawberry, sweet spice, red licorice and a hint of beautiful Indian incense. This wine hugs the sweet spot of sweet and tart, savory and juicy, with flavors of blackberry reduction, cherry bark, red licorice, and black pepper.
2014 Estate Barbera: Fresh-baked homemade gingerbread with molasses is right there up front, and ripe fruit, stewed strawberry, and cherry follow behind with vanilla notes to close it out. The palate has a nutty medley of walnut and pecan, blackberry and strawberry. This wine has a nice medium body that fills the palate evenly without overpowering or being cloying.
