Tasting Notes:

Fragrant aromas of apple blossom, peach and hints of lychee begin the nose of this light and refreshing Gewurztraminer.

Very nice domestic Gewurztraminer. Off-dry in style, with aromas of lychee and roses followed by a lychee and apple palate. Honey and rose aftertaste. More complexity than most at this price point, decidedly rich with nice acidity.

Rating: 86/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the September 2010 issue. Here is a mid-sized Chardonnay with clean and direct appley and lightly citrusy fruit tones filled out nicely by a distinctly caramelly, roasted vanilla bean note that lends just the right touch of richness to its aromatic beginnings and enhances an equally likeable and somewhat rounded, decently energetic set of flavors in the mouth. The search for the good $12 Chardonnay must include this oh-so-priceworthy bottling.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Drinkable now. Unlikely to improve with further aging.

Winemaker's Notes:

94 points Antonio Galloni (Wine Advocate): The 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Cinq Cepages is an explosive wine endowed with tons of depth and richness. It is an impeccably textured wine graced with notable size and elegance. Blackberry jam, savory herbs, graphite, tar and licorice inform the exuberant, polished finish. The 2008 relies heavily on fruit from vineyards in Knights Valley, with the addition of fruit from Alexander and Sonoma Valleys. In 2008 the blend is 78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc, 5% Merlot, 4% Petit Verdot and 3% Malbec. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2028. (Feb 2012)
