Saintsbury:
First published in 1920, George Saintsbury’s “Notes on a Cellar-Book” has inspired many to experiment widely and to form opinions unaffected by the fashion of the day. Included in those ranks are Mr. Ward and Mr. Graves, who named their winery in honor of Professor Saintsbury.
Suggested Recipe Pairing presented by
Layered Rice Pudding

RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.

Somewhat murky in the glass. Middlin' bouquet on the nose. Obvious pinot noir cherries on the palate. Fairly firm wine with nice tartness, some tannin. It's an OK wine, but not one I would seek out in the marketplace to get more. For some reason, though, I have two more bottles of it. This was a fairly highly rated wine in the press. So, maybe I have to try it with another meal. Drank last night with grilled Sockeye Salmon, grilled potatoes and steamed asparagus. I would like to try my next bottle with beef. $29.99 last February.

Pale garnet with a tinge of brown/orange. Strawberry nose, with a bit of oak on the palate. Very nice, long finish.

Citrus, especially grapefruit, predominates on the nose. Also soured lemons, tangy acid. Palate laced with grapefruit, dirt, oak, slight pepper, tobacco, earthy, and blackberries. Acidic throughout. Bland and flat, uninteresting after grapefruit zing.

Strikes a nice balance between ripe fresh cherry-berry fruit and minerally fresh earth touches keeping its focus on the berry themes. The tannins are integrated. Drink now through 2020.

This is perhaps the most aromatically refined wine in the range with its red berry fruit black raspberry plum floral and soft spice aromas. The delicious round and lush flavors are very forward and accessible with plenty of mouth coating dry extract. Similar to the Cerise one could wish for just a bit more depth but this is really very stylish and so delicious and it s hard to resist appreciating anyway. Outstanding Burghound.

The 2009 Pinot Noir Lee Vineyard shows gorgeous depth in its dark red fruit, tobacco, spices and cedar. This plush, generous Pinot can be enjoyed today, but it will be even better in another year or two once the flavors develop a little. I especially... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.
