Ripe and jammy on the nose with a nice base of well judged mocha, vanilla oak and a dusting of clove over soft, slightly minty black currant fruit. This is rather bright on entry with rich ripe prune and blackberry flavors supported by vibrant acidity, almost too vibrant in that it lends a citrus cast to the palate., though it does make this easy to drink. The ripeness eventually breaks through the acid barrier and the wood adds its weight on the backend before this fades on a modest, slightly dry and woody finish. Still it easy to drink and the freshness combined with the powerful fruit makes for an attractive package, though it tastes a bit like black currant jam on toast with cinnamon sugar. 89pts

More red than purple in the glass. Fairly big nose reporting oak and berry. Quite a big blast of berry fruit on introduction to the tongue, but it really does not take over. More earthy things happen as the wine passes over the tongue. Then there is a bit of woodiness at the back of the palate. Tannin and acid from the back of the palate and the tongue suggest more years of aging would be rewarded. US$34.79 at Costco in Chino Hills in 2013.

A nicely balanced cab with a deep body that opens nicely with time.

Our Merlot displays all the attributes that make this variety so popular: bright aromas and flavors of smooth cherry, plum and strawberry with hints of cedar, black olive and spice-supported by a supple texture with fine-grained tannins and bright acidity. These qualities come from choice Central Coast Merlot grapes, with 9% Syrah for enhanced color and richness. The Central Coast American Viticultural Area (AVA), especially Monterey County, provides the temperate climate, cool breezes and moist alluvial soils in which Merlot thrives, developing ripe, fruity flavors while retaining good balancing acidity. We enhance the wine's pure fruit flavors with just a hint of oak for roundness and complexity.

Lush and velvety, this Merlot brims with ripe dark fruit and sweet spice character from grapes grown in the southern half of Napa Valley, from Oakville to the Los Carneros region.

Lots of elegance in this Cabernet. It s dry full bodied and rich in tannins with a good depth of black currants and sweet toasty oak. Won t age but who cares: Pop the cork and drink it now. -S.H. Wine Enthusiast.

Deep, dense and concentrated, the flavors echo intense aromas of blueberry, bramble and cassis intermingled with cocoa, cinnamon and sweet, toasty oak. Bold, yet supple on the palate, the dark, richly-fruity flavors are balanced by a bright acidity an

Our Cabernet Sauvignon comes from cool-climate Central Coast grapes and has been blended with Cabernet Sauvignon and small amounts of Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Syrah, Petit Verdot, Teroldego, and Petite Sirah. The wine has the sweet floral red fruit character that distinguishes California's finest Cabernet Sauvignons, and its smoky oak and burgundy barrel roundness invigorates the palate while providing a lasting finish. Enjoy with a variety of dishes, from standing rib roasts, grilled steak, and roast duck to spare ribs, lasagna, and flavorful hard cheeses. - WineryVARIETAL COMPOSITION83% Cabernet Sauvignon,4% Cabernet Franc, 4% Merlot,3% Syrah, 2% Petit Verdot,2% Teroldego, 2% Petite SirahAPPELLATION54% Monterey County, 30% Paso Robles, 10% San Benito County, 4% North Coast, 2% Valley SouthOAK AGING: 12 monthsTA: 6.4g/LpH: 3.57ALCOHOL: 13.5%

Profound and intense, this Cabernet casts aromas of dark, concentrated fruit, warm vanilla and star anise around a powerfulmid-palate of vibrant huckleberry, blackberry and currant flavors. Its well-defined structure is accentuated by notes of freshlycut oregano, lemon verbena and bay leaves woven into the firm, seamless tannins. Continuing in the tradition of bold yetgraceful Napa Valley Cabernets, this wine captivates with a lengthy, enduring finish.

Our Chardonnay possesses aromas of pineapple with hints of lemon curd, mango and brioche. Look for pleasant undertones of citrus with flavors developing to stone fruits with a bright acidity and a lingering finish. - Winery

Winemaker's Notes:

Sattes Purpur mit rubinem Rand. Amarenakirschen und getrocknete Pflaumen in der Amarone-Artigen Nase, Nussschokolade und Pain d’Epice dahinter. Kompakter Gaumenfluss mit pelzigen Tanninen und marmeladigem Extrakt, noch etwas Flaschenreife verlangend, fleischige Mitte, Blaubeeren und Wachholder, gute Balance zwischen Terroirwürze und Fruchtsüsse, pflaumig und viel Stoff bis ins mineralische Finale.
