Wine experts say this Red wine delivers as advertised in terms of ripe, plush fruit. It offers consistent and well-defined flavors, some thin-edged, some ripe raspberry, red currant, briary notes and peppery spice. The finish lingers. Packed with dry tannins, this is likely to age. The fruit, fresh and jammy, has lost its fruitiness and has become candied. The acidity is there, very fresh. Aromatic, perfumed wine, its fresh acidity adding an edge to the red fruits. There is a light touch of citrus, adds a further edge to the wine. Final acidity is about the level needed to bring out the final crispness. The wine has weight, and a dark, tarry character. Spice and extract dominate, giving the wine a textured character as well as delicious black currant flavors. The tannins suggest aging for 2–3 years.
Wine experts say this Red wine is too toasty right now, perhaps because the fruit is too fresh. But it does show some raspberry flavors, and the wine will be fine and delightful from 2018. Made with 85% Sangiovese and 15% Merlot, this has aromas of violet, black-skinned berry and a whiff of baking spice. The round, chewy palate offers ripe morello cherry, red currant, white pepper and grilled herb. Aromas of black currant, grilled rosemary, black pepper and tilled soil come together on this. The ripe, forward palate offers mature black cherry, ripe raspberry and black pepper. Firm tannins provide support. The wine is structured, with fine tannins and tight acidity. With rich black-currant flavors and generous juicy acidity, this is likely to age. Drink from 2017. A supple, medium-bodied Pinot Noir that`s not often found at this price.
Wine experts say this Red wine delivers as promised, with aromas of grapefruit skin, butterscotch and honey that accent peach and melon fruit tones. It`s dry in style, yet so honeyed it`s sweet, and feels rich on the palate with a honey finish. This is a dry, delicately structured Pinot. Fresh and fruity in raspberry and cherry fruit, it also has a nice, finely tannic texture and an impressively earthy, toasty finish. Drink over the next few years. The vineyard is in the Santa Maria Valley, and the wine shows that quality. The cool vintage has produced a rich, creamy, yellow fruit and spice-flavored wine, the fruit balanced with a touch of acidity to leave a clean, crisp finish. Keep for one to three years.
Wine experts say this Red wine delivers as promised, with ripe fruit and a lingering touch of pepper and spice on the finish. Drink this honest, no-fuss wine now through 2015. A wonderful wine, like a Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir, but with aplomb. Lively and rich with cherry pie, red licorice, pomegranate, spicy vanilla and creamy vanilla flavors, set off by bright acidity and chalky tannins. Easy to find, with 12,100 cases produced. This is one of Iron Horse`s 2010s, least-know wines. The 2011 Art Series is a medium-bodied, pure-fruited wine with fragrances of violet and red berries. The flavors are pure and vivid, showing energy and focus, backed by soft, grapey tannins and bright acidity. It`s a wine to age; drink now through 2015.
