As I grow long I the tooth, the wine has been opened for 5 hours, and the results are fantastic.
Smells of cured meats,
Medium bodied blend that offers ripe flavors of strawberry, blueberry, mint, saline.
These wines are always fantastically good for the price, and more reminiscent of southern Rhone 30 years ago.
Cheers friends - we are almost back to drinking wine with friends again.

I was really impressed with this wine. Tropical fruit on the nose and really balanced with just the right amount of acid. A great value for $23 — 7 days ago

It is Sunday night and I have finished three rounds of shoveling snow. I have just sat down to open and enjoy the 2016 Roxy Ann Winery Single Vineyard Estate Grown Cabernet Sauvignon.
On the nose there is black cherry, blackberry, black plum, black currant, cedar box, menthol and earth.
On the palate I am getting good black cherry, blackberry, black plum, cedar, graphite and earth.
This wine is medium+ to full bodied with medium + acidity and medium + firm sandy tannins that lead into a long dark fruit gravelly finish. Well, besides getting 10-12 inches of snow and having to shovel several times today, the weekend has been very nice. Please stay safe and healthy and have a great week ahead.

Impressive wine for $20! Grapes sourced from Oregon Valleys of Willamette, Umpqua and Rogue. Cool climates enable a longer growing season, giving an intense structure. Medium Ruby with loads of Berry fruit flavors & sweet spice. Ripe fruit, cranberry and cherry, with cinnamon spice, consistent quality. On the finish, vibrant acidity, great balance and a touch of earthiness with subtle tannins. Tasting Sample. — 2 days ago
Clear dark ruby. Abundant nose of musty, earthy black cherry with a vanilla sheen. Medium bodied palate echoes the nose with a bit of anise and medium acidity. Medium minus tannins that mildly assert on the finish. Classic higher end Willamette PN at a great price. Pair with pork, duck, salmon (Pacific, natch) or practically anything else. Drink now through 2029 when the mellowed fruit will suggest Burgundy. — 5 days ago
