Wine experts say this Red wine delivers as promised, with a lovely structure and delicate aromas of red cherry, violet, sweet spice and hints of dried herb. It`s very well made, especially in the aromas, and will be very nice now for its smooth, restrained deliciousness. However, over the next few years, the fruit should develop a riper, chunkier feel. Drink from 2016. Truffle, new leather and plum are some of the aromas you`ll find in this taut red. The palate is on the racy, focused side, but also full of juicy wild cherry and raspberry flavors. It has just the right zestiness and structure for a good aging season. Made in the modern way of very ripe fruit, this Chardonnay is pretty much just about all you could ask for in a California Chardonnay. Lots of new French oak, just enough for complexity, and a rich, lingering finish.
Wine experts say this Red wine delivers as advertised, with punchy cassis, plum, black cherry and chocolate flavors. There`s good acidity, and in this case, the wine tastes fresh and not very complex. But there`s no doubt about the quality of the tannins, and the wine almost has a venison streak. Give it a year to fully come together. Rusack`s basic Pinot, with a county-wide appellation, is a bargain. It`s dry, silky and crisp in acidity, with pleasant raspberry, cola and persimmon flavors. Drink now. Leather, cola, wild berry and you are in good shape; but you`re better off drinking this wine with its full, red berry flavors and not cellaring. Drink up with grilled ribs. Very dry, crisp and minerally, this 100% Cab has acidity lurking on the fringes.
Wine experts say this Red wine delivers as promised, with bright, forward fruit and a sharp streak of acidity. There is also a touch of wood and the wine does need aging. Although it is delicious now, the wine will improve over the next few years. Muscular and fresh, this wine has notes of raspberries, pomegranates, cherry cola and smoky oak. It`s full-bodied and fleshy, showing a fine sense of balance. A new effort from Jigar Vineyards, which is located in the heart of the appellation, this wine dazzles with notes of fresh lime, but also pomegranate and orange peel, complexed with a touch of dried basil. The palate is ripe and bold, with an almost sweetness-rich finish. With a bit of Petit Verdot and Merlot, this is a big, bold, full-bodied wine.
Wine experts say this Red wine delivers. It`s dry, brisk in acidity and ultrarefined, offering sharp lemon, lime and white flower flavors, with a citrusy acid underpinning. The acidity is bracing. This 100% varietal wine makes the case for Viognier in Oregon. Aromas of menthol, purple fruit, vanilla and meaty, mushroomy flavors are appealing but lack the heft to stand up to the plump fruitiness of ice tea. This Cabernet is rich and ripe, putting a tannic structure around blackberry fruit. Intended for long-term aging, the wine isn`t drinkable now, so drink from 2017. While innocuous on the nose, this easygoing, fruity blend of Grenache Blanc, Riesling and Marsanne is leesy on the palate with a green almond-skin finish.
Wine experts say this Red wine delivers as promised, with ripe black cherry and Asian spice character. The acidity is not spectacular but the warm California vintage has made it fro, drink now, attractive. A lovely Sauvignon Blanc, chock-full of ripe tropical and citrus fruits, lifted by acidity, and finished with a sharp cut of acidity. Lovely in its own right, but will benefit from a few years in the cellar. Pleasantly fruity, with a finely layered texture, flavors of ripe raspberries, vanilla and sweet baking spices. It`s a wine to drink now and over the next few years. A lovely, smooth wine, ripe with black plums, red currants and new oak. The flavors of the fruits give a juicy character, while the texture is soft, not harsh. A bit hard in tannins and stinging on the palate, with a midnight-ish bitterness on the finish.
