Beautiful color of light pink with a peachy hue.
On the nose raspberries, sweet strawberries, limes, grapefruits, spices, light herbs and light sea salt.
Medium bodied with medium plus acidity.
Dry on the palate with strawberries, green apples, grapefruits, herbs, spices, earth, light vegetables and black pepper.
Tangy finish with spices and bitter almonds.
This is an easy drinking Rosé from Sonoma Coast. A nice summer wine.
Fruity on the nose and earthier on the palate. Light and engaging. Crisp and refreshing.
Feels like a French Rosé with a touch of new world.
Better after 20 minutes of airtime, and will pair nicely with food. I had it all by itself by the beach.
13.3% alcohol by volume.

Absolutely delicious. The 27% Zin makes itself noticed on the nose, which has the telltale brambly blackberry competing with the deep red berries of the Carignane. And there’s a bit of the signature Ridge American oak adding a vanilla/smoky note on top of a little gravel. Texturally soft and mouthfilling, it’s ripe but in beautiful balance. Tangy acids from the Carignane. A bit of tannin, but it’s very soft. I don’t see this as a long ager, but really nice now. The finish is a little short, but that’s common in my view with Carignane, which tend to give a significant initial whack of flavor and then dissipates quickly. — 14 days ago
Completely enjoyable but this has peaked and receded. Great year and my only regret is saving it. Would have been better to plunge in and burn through asap. Now it’s still very up front but it’s a bit more astringent. The alcohol seems more pronounced. Not to say it was a chore to drink by any stretch. This is still an enjoyable bottle but I compare it to what it was and it is less but overall it’s still an enjoyable wine. — 2 days ago
McKahn Family Cellars has a real gem with this Viognier, 2021. With a very nice low profile, grapefruit and lemon bouquet, this beautiful white wine tantalizes the tongue￼ with Licorice￼ and grapefruit. There is also a hint of green Apple in there￼. There is an oaky finish with a lingering tartness that drives you to take another sip. I’m not a real big white wine drinker, but for the hot summertime, this chilled on ice is a fantastic wine I highly recommend.￼￼ — 7 days ago
The first of 4 bottles from my cellar. The nose has blackberry, violets and dried herbs. The palate has that trademark Margaret River herbaceousness but in this warmer vintage more cassis, fine persistent tannins which go on forever - almost silky. Just a beautiful rendition of Margaret River Cabernet with a very long life in front of it - say 20 years. Cape Mentelle one of the early vineyards and down in the south near the town. — 10 days ago
Deep Ruby with aromas of berry fruits and tangy spices. On the palate flavors of blackberry and raspberry with black pepper, tar, spice and a touch of earthy herbs. Fine rustic tannins, medium+ finish ending with fruit, earthy spice and some oak. Nice! — 18 days ago
