Top Notes For
Sipping Fine Wine

Tim Murphy, Dale Goode & Dave Ready founded their three-family partnership in 1985 and launched the brand with two wines: estate grown Fumé Blanc and Chardonnay. Fruit sourced a variety of vineyards along the coast of CA with cooler climates. Aromas of berry fruits and sweet spice. On the palate cherry flavors with cinnamon spice adding oaky notes. Medium finish, soft tannins ending with a fruit character. Light easy drinking wine, good value. Tasting Sample.

Did not expect much from this label. Really great surprise! The nose of a Burgundian Pinot noir; strawberry, wood and undergrowth. A pleasantly decent amount of funk!
Good fruit on the palate and decent tannins to work with food, and great dry finish.
Pleasantly surprised! Buy it if you see it.

Fruity up front, good medium body and acidity. Overall pleased but taste becomes tiresome after 6-7 glasses
