2004 Red Ink: Bordeaux/Rhone Blend

Red Ink, our propriety name for this lively and approachable wine, reflects the color of the ruby and violet highlights (Red Ink!). This wine has the aroma of candied fruit: strawb ... moreerry, cranberry, earthy notes, leather and a hint of mint. The luscious aromas of fruit, earthiness and leather weave complex layers throughout the wine. The finish is very long, exuding berries, spices, and butterscotch. Open a bottle of Red Ink for dinner; you will not be disappointed. It's easy to drink, and very easy to enjoy. Cheers!

2003 Reserve Merlot

The 2003 vintage was relatively cool and spring was rainy. Two short but strong heat waves in September were followed by a gentle Indian summer that allowed the grapes to finish th ... moreeir maturation. This resulted in fresh and tannic wines that are close in style to classical Bordeaux wines.

The Reserve Merlot comes from a single block that has a fairly high clay content. The fruit is harvested and fermented separately. Our Reserve Merlot always comes from this block, it always produces our best merlot. The wine was aged 22 months in French oak barrels on its lees and never racked. The lees coat the grape and oak tannins making the wine appear softer in its youth. It is an age worthy wine. With time it will show great purity, definition, complexity and finesse.

We sourced our fruit from a well known producer located in St. Helena, Napa Valley. Originally planted almost 150 years ago, it was replanted in 1998. The well-drained, gravelly loam soil there helps create wines with a tremendous concentration of cassis, graphite, and other characteristics reminisc ...
