Wine experts say this Red wine delivers as promised, with plenty of fruit and some wood. The structure is solid, and the wine shows some firm, dry tannins. But the fruit is right in the middle, and it finishes with a touch of final acidity. It should have much better of a track record in years to come. Good, rich, spicy cola and red currant flavors, wrapped into fine tannins, and fresh acidity. The vineyard is in the Santa Rosa Plain, a subregion on the Central Coast, producing decent Pinots. This wine, though, shows a lot of promise. Very mineral, crisp, tight and tense, this has the sort of acidity that a fine Pinot might need, with a sharp, intense flavor of green berries. Yet this is Madeira, and you can drink it now. The winery`s packaging shows that as a potential wine. Way too young to drink now.
Wine experts say this Red wine delivers as advertised for under $10. It`s dry and crisp in acidity, with pleasant citrus, gooseberry and spice flavors, brightened with zesty natural acidity. The grapes come from: Syrah, Grenache, Cinsault and Mourvèdre. This off-dry wine shows just slightly the same taste and aroma profile as the regular bottling, with lemons, limes and oily, leesy parts. It`s very dry and crisp in acidity, with ripe honeydew, yellow candy and limes flavors. Light in color and weight, this Pinot is a bit at home in flavor, as the grapes from their vineyard in the valley below. Light red fruits and a pleasant herbal streak give it an easy-drinking feel. A little unripe, with some bitterness throughout, making it more than adequate. But it`s dry, with ripe raspberry flavors, and the alcohol level is 15.
Wine experts say this Red wine delivers as promised, with bright acidity, a firm structure and a touch of pepper on the finish. Drink it over the next several months. A Cabernet Sauvignon-dominant blend with 15% Cabernet Franc (9% each from the Douro and Côte des Blancs), this has the complex, dusty, saturated nose one might expect from a grape that tends to be more herbaceous and cohesively tannic. The palate shows red currants, brown-sugar and citrus-peel flavors, with just a touch of dried herbs and raspberries. This powerful, very structured wine shows a firm, dense texture as well as the ripe fruitiness that will allow it to age. The wine has power and a dense, black-fruit character, with excellent acidity and a finishing streak of tobacco. Drink from 2016. Powerful tannins dominate this dark, ripe wine.
