Sipping Fine Wine

A very small operation, their first release was a Zinfandel in 1987. Deep Ruby with aromas of dark berry fruits, spice and forest floor notes. On the palate flavors of ripe blackberry, currants and dried herbs with notes of vanilla and oak. Medium+ finish, nicely balanced, fine yet firm tannins, ending with fruit, spice and earthy character. Nice! Must try again!

Dark Ruby, a rich and complex Cab loaded with youthful berry and red fruit aromas with herb spice and cedar aromas. On the palate blackberry and sweet cherry flavors with notes of pepper, espresso, smoke and sweet herbs. Refined tannins, but still tight, long ending with a fine sweet smoky cedar character. Very nice has room to age.

Gorgeous burgundy colors. Aromas of oak, vanilla, and forest floor. Smooth on the palate, and none of the bite that often accompanies cab sav. Lovely!
