Fragile Rosé Grenache Blend

Fragile - I don't believe it’s pronounced frah-ghee-lay - has a big, bright nose full of big, bright red fruit. A bit of heat pokes its head through, too, owing to the 15% alcohol content. That cherry-red fruit comes through on the palate as well, with a boatload of acidity to boot. The winery notes say Fragile pairs well with lighter fare and warm, sunny days. I'd have it with pork chops in a heartbeat. — 3 days ago

Brief notes.
Very well done. Just lacking the density we like in a Napa cab. Otherwise, great.

Slander California Pinot Noir

For a California Pinot Noir, I like this. This is the first Cali’ pinot I can say that about. All of those who have read my reviews know I prefer Oregon Pinots. You can really smell the cherry on the bouquet. The initial palate opens the canvas to colors and flavors of cherry, Red licorice, and boysenberry. The middle of this presentation is full on spice!!! The finish is mildly dry and leaves absolutely no aftertaste! No sourness, no tartness, only a desire for another taste! — 15 days ago

Abstract California Grenache Blend

The 2016 'Abstract' is an intense blend of Grenache, Syrah and Petite Sirah, which was aged for 10 months in 35% new French oak prior to bottling. This begins with aromatics of milk chocolate, sagebrush, black tea and black olive all soaring from the glass. On the palate the texture impresses, as the wine glides effortlessly leaving behing flavors of black tea, blackberry jam, and mocha which persist through the extremely long finish.
