Bursts from the glass with gorgeous freshness. White flowers, spices, chocolate, mocha and sweet red berries jump out from this exuberant, fleshy Merlot. 94% Merlot plus dollops of Cabernet Franc,Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot.
Nearing the age of four years, this Cabernet remains hefty in tannins, but it's not undrinkable, because those tannins are soft and lush. In fact, they're an integral part of the network that makes the wine so interesting, which also includes the classic Cabernet flavors of blackberries and cassis.
A delicious entry-level wine, the 2010 Merlot is rich, boisterous and loaded with fruit. Freshly cut flowers, sweet red berries, mint and spices all make an appearance in this flashy, exuberant red. The vibrancy of the vintage works to balance some of the wine?s natural overtness. Clean, saline notes add an attractive briskness to the finish. This ..
Bright, deep red-ruby. Sexy, ripe aromas of red fruits and smoke. Lush, broad and creamy, with impressive fat and length for village wine. This was bottled in December of 2008, with the following wines bottled in February of '09.
Bridled with a lovely nose of decayed red fruit, fireside hearth, a touch of mulberry and small red cherry. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins, crisp red fruits (wild strawberry and cranberry) with a sharp, vibrant, tense, tannic finish that has immense precision. There is a slight saline note lingering in the mouth after the wine has (r..
Brilliant clear golden yellow. Intensely flowery (violets), and fruity (apricot, peaches and citrus) on the nose. The palate is Fresh and round. Rich, unctuous and full bodied. A harmonious wine with light acidity and round fleshy fruits. Delicate and elegant.
Wafts from the glass with freshly cut flowers, rose petals, sweet red cherries and licorice. The Cahill Lane has terrific aromatic lift and intensity, which keeps the wine light on its feet. There is more than enough freshness and energy for the wine to drink well for a number of years.
Lightly cooked strawberry is accented with sandalwood, coffee, peat, and white pepper, and wreathed with a remarkable wealth of distilled-strength floral and herbal high-tones. (Yeah, I love Henri Bonneau, says Smith as I remark on that aspect of his latest Boy.) This manages to offer considerable textural allure for a wine of its cepage; what's mo..
Our inaugural release of Old Stones Syrah from down in the rocks area of the Walla WallaValley. Generous and rich, this wine asks what else could you want? Asian five spice, graphite, pencil lead, grilled meat, toasted marshmallow, and a cool fireplace ash makes this a very suave one.
The 2009 Chardonnay Cuvee Alyce is a gorgeous, layered wine that impresses for its nuance and detail. Ripe apricots, flowers, lemon and sweet spices are some of the many aromas and flavors that take shape in the glass, but ultimately the Cuvee Alyce is most remarkable for its textural elegance and silkiness.
100% Sangiovese: Only two 500 liter barrels of this single vineyard beauty. From the rocks and farmed by Jack, this wine shows tobacco, tiny Italian cherries, leather, and anise. With tannins a plenty this wine is sure to please.
