Merryvale

Hyde Vineyard Chardonnay 2016

Gold hue. Ripe cantaloupe, star fruit, Bosc pear, white flowers, and wet stone on the nose. Buttered popcorn and creme brûlée on the palate. Medium minus acidity. Full-bodied white that pairs well with pecan-crusted halibut, asparagus wrapped in prosciutto with a white truffle butter drizzle, and couscous topped with fresh thyme and gruyere. #merryvale #chardonnay #chardonnaywine #newworldwines #hydevineyard #hydevineyardchardonnay #carneros #calichard #malolactic #foodandwine #chardsohard — 8 months ago

Teeter-Totter

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Purple hue with ruby rim variation. Noticeable extraction and moderate tearing. Candied black and red fruit on the nose; blackberry, raspberry, cassis; dried roses; potpourri; potting soil, molasses, and anise notes; cedar box and vanilla. Smooth, soft tannins on the palate. Dry. Palate is largely consistent with the nose, but definitely fruit-forward and noticeable new oak. Medium acidity with a slight spiciness. #teetertotter #napavalley #napavalleycab #cabernetsauvignon #faitmainwines #winelover #newworldwines #californiagirl #wineandfood
