To the wine, it's a lit lighter in color than a typical big California Cabernet but it's still a lovely deep ruby color in the glass. The nose is very thick with ripe jammy fruit, raspberries, cherries, plum amid a background of oak. The taste is surprisingly not sweet or jammy as the nose would suggest but instead it's very austere. You are greeted with a lovely combination of tart cherry, raspberries and fresh herbs that transitions to some stark minerality mid palate. The tannins are very nicely structured giving rise to a very smooth and dry finish.

Light, crisp and dry chardonnay with little oak. Not bad but has somewhat of a metallic mid-palate

I hadn't heard of the wine when I decided to try it, was a little nervous that it wouldn't be great since the price was $13 at the Wine Bistro (Columbus OH). It was very well rounded no spikey notes, deep, plush, but not so smooth as to be "wimpy". Nice dark plum, berry fruit on top of moderate woody, earthiness. I considered it a "find".

The Lyon vineyard is the first of the two to come into the winery just about 10 days prior to the Dorn vineyard Pinot Noir. The Lyon and Dorn Vineyard lots are brought in separately and are fermented in stainless tanks and barrel aged in French and Hungarian barrels, of which 20% are new, for roughly 9 months. The final blend consists of equal portions of the two.
