Spicy and a bit weedy on the nose with lovely hints of vanilla, tomato and herbs framing the lightly spicy red cherry fruit aromas that pick up a dusting of cocoa with some air. A touch soft in the mouth, this does have an attractive texture, rather broad and a bit chewy but at the same time transparent and fresh. the Flavors are a bit simple, moderately oaky red cherry fruit with some nice spice and herb accents along with milk chocolate on the finish which turns a cranberry toned. It has everything it should and is a lovely very accessible example of Merlot. Easy to drink and understand with lovely freshness. 88pts

This is a pretty classic nose full of nuanced dill, eucalyptus and tomato leaf aromas over a base of black currant fruit framed with a nice note of fresh oak with a hint of caramel. Nicely light and fresh in the mouth, this could use a bit more acidity, though the fruit flavors recall tart red raspberry and wild blackberry which helps with the balance. A touch of sweetness also serves to give the impression that this might be softer than it actually is, but the flavors are classic California Cabernet, fresh with hints of herbs, wood spice, and vanilla all presented in a fresh, medium bodied package. This wine is a winner and is a sure fire crowd pleaser for Cabernet drinkers out there. 88pts

Fresh on the nose with classic toasty oak, coconut, pineapple and lime aromas accented with a touch of nectarine and some popcorn. Soft and slightly sweet on entry, this shows some early caramel flavors layered over ripe pineapple fruit with vanilla top notes. A bit ponderous in the mouth, it nonetheless delivers fairly classic rendition of creamy Napa Chardonnay. The finish is clean and bright though the oak is a touch aggressive here. Definitely not my style, but this should please many people. 85pts

Nicely balanced on the nose with peach and mineral notes, topped by gentle herbal and floral tones. Zesty and nicely focused in the mouth, this appears a little lean at first but has lovely depth of flavors and a concentrated, if focused, core of peachy fruit. There’s a hint of powder tannin that adds a little peach skin here and complicating notes of pineapple and green plum emerge on the back end. The finish is fairly long and zesty, yet with a nice layer of fruit that keeps the acid balanced. Light and fresh with a nice blend of both warm and cool climate traits. 88pts

Citrusy, melon flavors. Relatively smooth, though slightly hot.

Oaky and tropical on the nose with some nice overtones of ripe melon. Medium body, sprite acidity with some light butterscotch. A nice white pizza wine!

Good wine for the money. A little weirdly sour, but good.

Good, rich Zinfandel that brings a Napa elegance and sophistication to the variety?s wild and woolly personality. The briary, brambly thing is all here, with wild berry, cocoa, nutmeg, cinnamon and pepper flavors, and the exuberance is distinctively
