Reserve Dessert Wine

Easily one of the best I’ve had! Everything the style should have with next to none of the boozy nose & alcohol found in the high ABVs. — 3 years ago

Sonoma County Blanc de Noir

May 28, 2020. We were welcomed at the winery with a glass of this in late February. It is SO GOOD. Brought a bottle home and have subsequently purchased more to support Aonair during the pandemic shutdown. A beautiful Blanc de Noir, light salmon color and so smooth. Very easy to drink. Lovely alone or with food. Nice with Italian flourless chocolate cake, too. I’d drink it any time. — a year ago

Estate Conn Valley Cabernet Franc 2014

9.3

Not only does the winery have gorgeous views atop Conn Valley in Napa overlooking Lake Hennessy, the wines are delicious...but more importantly, the people are gracious and kind. Highly recommend visiting.

Though their other wines get more fanfare (mainly because there is more to go around), their CabFranc is always my favorite offering. At a whopping 2 barrels of production, getting access can be a bit tricky. For a cab franc, there is zero green pepper notes. Aromatically, it is a combo of rich, ripe red and black fruits all dipped in fondue chocolate, baking spices like cinnamon and clove with a woodsy note like sandalwood. While decadent in profile, there is plenty of acidity here to keep this from being too flabby. Notes of Christmas spice cake, red and black licorice, Black Forest cake shavings and a hint of herbs on the finish. Still quite youthful, this seems to just be entering a drink phase.

@Bryan Kesting : Was a wine club member here for a quite a while. Solid across the board. Winemaker here also makes wine for Jack Winery in Atlas Peak and a few other small labels. They also do a cabernet, a mountain proprietary, Grenache and a white blend. Happy to send you a bottle of those or open one next time you’re down here.

Estate Blend Coombsville Red Blend 2013

Just got back from our cruise but want to keep California Wine Month going strong. Decided to crack open our favorite bottling (ATM) from Aonair.

Dark ruby red. Layered nose with cinnamon, blackberries, black currants and dark gravel. Heavy tannins (7/10) and full bodied. Needed some air to fill up in the mid palate. Nice level of complexity with some solid minerality on the palate. A touch savory too and notes of blackberries, spices, dried herbs and a little bit of blue fruits. Long finish. Drink till 2028.
