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.

Under rated Pinot. Raspberry and black cherry notes. Drink this. You will not be disappointed.

Silky easy drinking Pinot Noir with decent QPR. Strawberry and jam upfront with some tannins on the finish. Light, not the most complex, but a good weeknight glass. Would buy again.

Trying to get into pinot’s and I like this one, don’t usually like the oak but this one it’s flavorful and not overpowering

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

Delicious, light Pinot Noir, low tannin and acidity, hints of berry and tea (Star)
