Wine experts say this Red wine delivers as advertised in the beginning. The blend is 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc. Well acclimated, it offers a meaty, smoky wine with tannins to keep in shape. The powerful fruit core continues through to the medium-length finish. The grapes come from three very old vineyards—Old North vineyards and the cool-climate sites for the variety. Light aromas of herb, just-naked tangerines and lemons are followed by very lightly-sweet stone-fruit flavors that linger. The wine has notes of toast, blueberry and spice. It`s 100% varietal with just a splash of Syrah (10% Grenache) and a splash of Viognier. What it lacks in subtlety it more than makes up for in richness. Drink now.
Wine experts say this Red wine delivers as promised, with a wonderfully long finish and a subtle use of oak. Aromas of light- to medium-bodied berry, fig, dried herb and clove are followed by full-feeling fruit and barrel flavors. Soft and quite subtle, this is one to cellar and improve through 2017. Full and ripe, this is a firm and structured wine. It has a firm character, ripe and full of ripe berry and plum fruit flavors as well as a dry core that will allow it to age 2016 well. An impressively rich and concentrated wine, this is powered by its tannins as well as black currant fruit. The texture is dense, layered and complex, and the generous fruit and acidity of the vintage really comes through. Breezily aromatic notes of juniper, cypress and lemon take over. The palate is round and ample in composition, while the flavors of white grapefruit and pineapple end long and floral.
Wine experts say this Red wine is the future of southern Rhône. Lovely aromas include moist earth, black fruit and even a touch of vanilla. Drink this mouthfilling, succulent wine over the next few years. Big, fruity wine, with ripe tannins and intense acidity. The wine is so rich, it has a berry jam flavor, very jammy in youth, showing more character than usual. One of those wines that could well be made age-proving age. A fine bubbly, with a clean edge of acidity to round out the flavors. It is very dry, showing light fruit flavors, but more often than not there are too flavors, like currants and white peaches, to keep the wine balanced. Very acidic, almost sour, but it`s also clean, fresh, and clean for a wine such as this. The flavors of grapefruit, lime and acidity are very pure, leaving the wine clean and fresh.
