2007 Chenin blanc
Napa Valley

The 2007 Chenin blanc was blessed by an immaculate growing season this year. The wine has very complex and classic Chenin blanc flavors of peaches, pears, citrus blossoms, honeysuc ... morekle, apple, lime and lemon. This Chenin is crisp, clean and fruit forward, and is very refreshing. The structure of the palate is full and silky with a crisp finish. The wine has a zesty citrus character on the palate with notes of peach, melon and floral blossoms. The wine has a silky texture that is accentuated by an extremely slight vanilla quality to the finish.

Black cherry and blueberry dominate the aromas of this fruit-forward style Merlot. There are nice layers of rose petal, red apple, vanilla and licorice. The palate reflects the fla ... morevors with its fruit-forward style nuanced by a complex spice. The wine is very full on the palate with nice balanced tannins and good body. There is a well balanced acidity that lets the fruit character linger on the palate for quite some time.

The palate is full bodied, and rounded through to the finish. Fresh berries and baking spices hit the palate first. The oak shows peaks through the fruit with rich toasty qualities and layers of tannin. The finish of the wine has flavors of warm blueberry pie.

2005 Cabernet Sauvignon
Napa Valley

Boysenberry syrup, blueberry and cherry are the first aromas emanating from the glass of our Cabernet Sauvignon. The wine reveals itself in layers of anise, raspberry, vanilla, lic ... moreorice and clove. The palate mirrors the nose with its fruit forward style nuanced by the complex spice. This Cabernet is very full on the palate, and has well defined tannin. The soft acidity and silky smooth finish let the wine's finish linger for quite some time. This wine is great now, but should mature well for years to come.
