2018 Digression Rose

Provence, France

60% Grenache, 25% Cinsault, 15% Syrah

Pale rose in color, this cool climate rosé from Provence is a delight from start to finish. Digression opens with hints of white flowers, light minerality, peach and melon on the nose. On the palate, initial notes of delicate minerality lead you to notes of sun-kissed strawberry and a hint of watermelon. Aged on fine lees for six months, Digression has an elegant finesse that dances across the tongue.

2017 Peju Sauvignon Blanc

Napa Valley, California

This Sauvignon Blanc is very bright, lively and fresh with a pop of citrus flavors and hints of tropical fruit. Aromas of pineapple, passion fruit, grapefruit and lychee burst out of the glass. Notes of lemon curd, green apple and apricot linger on the palate with a fresh, clean finish and bracing minerality. 91 Pts Wine Enthusiast

2016 Reata 3 County Pinot Noir

52% Sonoma, 31% Monterey, 17% San Benito Counties

This Pinot Noir is notable for its rich ruby color and notes of cherry,raspberry and pomegranate. Aromas of vanilla fill the glass that lead to a well-structured weight on the palate. French oak notes lead to a strong finish that lingers on the palate nicely. A great Pinot Noir for any occasion. 90 Pts Wilford Wong

2016  Gehricke Zinfandel

Russian River Sonoma,  California

Aromas are layered and fresh with ripe strawberries, raspberries and a subtle hint of leather. Secondary aromas consist of vanilla, spice and cinnamon stick. The spice carries through to the palate and is prominent. A soft and fruit forward entry displays flavors of dried raspberries and fresh red cherries. The next layer showcases a substantial amount of vanilla extract, caramel and butterscotch. A bright acidity alongside soft tannins keep the overall impact of the finish rounded and nicely balanced. 92 Pts Tasting Panel, 91 Pts Wine Spectator

2016 Mettler Cabernet

Lodi, California

Inviting aromas of dark cherry, cola, cedar, mineral and earth followed by a graceful mingling of cherry, cranberry and sweet oak flavors with a whisper of vanilla. On the palate, the rich mouthfeel is moderated by juicy acidity, and the long finish is reminiscent of a fine Bordeaux. This elegant and poised Cabernet is accessible now, and its structure and complexity will see it through many years of aging. Gold Medal & 91 Points 2018 Winemaker Challenge
