On the nose, it’s soft and delicate. Mid & dark red fruits of; strawberries, cranberries, blackberries, black cherries, pomegranate, limestone minerals, touch of rich dark earth with violets & fresh red florals. The body is leaner in style and elegant. Fruits of; strawberries, cherries, dark cherries & blackberries. Limestone, soft volcanic minerals, fresh red roses, red florals with violets for days, nice acidity, great balance and elegance, structure, tension and length that are well knitted together. The long finish is beautiful and delicious. Paired well with the Butternut Squash Gnocchi Cambozola Cream and Toasted Walnuts. Prepared by the Davis Estate Chef and featured in the middle left photo. It’s was delicious! Other photos; the Davis commercial kitchen, water fountain and Davis Estate House. — 2 days ago
A JV between Champagne Taittinger & Kobrand established in 1987. Ruby color with full red & black fruit aromas, with earthy tones. Aged for 10 months in oak, shows raspberry and black cherry flavors adding toasty oak and sweet delicate spice. Lively acidity and smooth dusty tannins, great mouth-feel that brings this wine to a lingering finish. Tasting Sample. — 5 days ago
Had another bottle recently. Ruby with aromas of sweet ripe red fruits with an array of herb scents. Grapes blended from four vineyards and aged in French oak (50% new) for 16 months, the palate had flavors of cranbery & wild cherry fruit, with plums and savory currants. The wine had layers of flavors, leather, cacao and earthy tones, nice mouthfeel that lingered to a long finish. Complex, consistent. Very Nice! Tasting Sample! — 2 days ago
Fantastic! Very Long lasting legs. Deep and rich color. Rich oak aroma with hints of pepper. Earthy flavor with some oak mixed with fruits. This wine is very smooth all the way through the glass. Love this wine! Going to get a few more bottle for later! — 5 days ago
Valentines Day Dinner at home (instead of amateur night) requires bubbly always! Been saving this one for a while and well worth the wait. Time has given the flavors of brioche more yeast, vanilla and Fuji apple. Gives all of the traditional French champagnes a run for their money. — 2 days ago
Hanging out with my eldest tonight, nice seared tuna for dinner accompanied by this elegant 175 case production pinot. I can always appreciate the hands on approach of Hank Skewis - translucent in the glass, delicate floral and spice on the nose and a beautiful berry-laden finish. Glad to have more waiting. — 6 days ago
Excellent wine! I both tried this at my Uncle’s Thanksgiving feast last year and we went to the vineyard that actually makes this brand of wine (from the source was amazing) on our many other vineyard visits in the sonoma/napa valley areas.
