Rich And Bold

Sunstone Vineyards and Winery

Reserve Santa Ynez Valley Merlot 2013

Rich & bold yet dry. Very tasty! We opened this to go with a casual dinner without realizing exactly how good this would be. Would've been awesome to open with a formal dinner, but we will enjoy it nonetheless! — 6 days ago

Sine Qua Non

Stock California Syrah 2012

The nose, o' my...has this sweet blackberry liquor scent with loamy earth as a backdrop-fills the entire sinus cavity. On the sip you get this warm berry cobbler essence filled with smoke and bitter chocolate. A core of rich and structured fruit. Bold yet polished tannins. A finish that sails on for over a minute, Jennifer I started laughing about how long it is. — a day ago

Alpha Estate

Turtles Vineyard Syrah 2011

Clean and strong at this age. Bold cherries and rich fruit. Sweet but enough extra complexity to not have the sweet become distracting. — 21 hours ago

Croft Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc 2015

A multi-dimensional and organically farmed SB from Willamette Valley, Oregom. Less lush and intense than the 2014 vintage, this A.Rich Sauvignon shows exotic fruit along with spicy lemon peel and an almost tangy acidity. Medium to full bodied — a month ago

Emmolo Winery

Napa Valley Merlot 2014

Inky in color with same color rim.

Strong nose of blackberries, cherries, currants, oak, vanilla, licorice, cloves, earth, leather, green pepper, chocolates, tobacco, herbs, spices and black pepper.

Full bodied and bold, with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry and fruity on the palate with blackberries, figs, smoke, licorice, cherries pie, vegetables, earth, leather, green pepper, chocolates, tobacco, herbs, spices and black pepper.

Long finish with firm tannins and peppercorn.

What an awesome Merlot from Napa Valley this is. Balanced and enjoyable by itself or with food.
Complex and interesting with a nice mouthfeel. A great sipping wine. Powerful, rich and delicious. Another hit from the Wagner family.

Drinking nicely now and needs 1 hour to open up properly.

Love this wine - because of the 2012 I bought the BTK and Martinez and this version for 14 - second time with this wine and all I can say is I am a believer - it is up there with all really good Napa cabs of late for me - decanted 2 hours

Why do I like this wine so much? Three words - big bold beautiful- the color is an amazing dark color deep purplish shamrock color - smells like grooving on Sunday afternoon with blackberry and cassis fruit - this wine hits the palate with bold serious authoritative expert pinpoint force that must be reckoned with and the taste - oh yes the taste - well - it is reason I said it is up there with the best of Napa cabs of late for me - the taste is rich concentrated with wonderful mouth filling tannins and last forever

This wine should last at least 10 years
