Ana's top-notch Tempranillo is intensely fruity and flush with plump berry flavors, like taking your pick of the juiciest fruit from bushels of blackberries, cherries and plums, all topped off with a delicate touch of mocha from a year of barrel-aging in fancy French oak.
Fresh citrus fruit flavors lead on the palate with a nice underlying note of tropical fruit. Since this wine is largely unoaked, the crisp and refreshing acidity comes through on the palate making for a nice thirst-quenching wine
This release is an excellent example, with cherry, baking spice and fresh pine aromas and a wonderful structure with big, deep fruit flavors. 95% Tannat, 5% Sangiovese;
Silvaspoons Vineyard, Alta Mesa, Lodi
Nose: Cherries, baking spices, fresh pine
Taste: Big bodied wine with deep fruit and great structure
Aromatics of red plum and autumn leaves are accented by subtle notes of lavendar and boysenberry. The mid-palate offers flavors of Bing cherry, and ripe raspberry, finishing with soft, well integrated tannins with a hint of pomegranate. All I can say is WOW!!!
Gum drop laced blackberry and cherry notes are accented with violet, smoke and herb elements. supposedly a hint of banana lingering on the finish. I have to say, not one of my favorites. 2020 really disappointed me.
Pale straw with green highlights. Great nose of subtle white flowers mixed with white peach fruit. A lovely and intense wine with floral notes, peach and pear flavors.
Intense cherry red color. Remarkable aromatic complexity with memories of black fruit and balsamic and toasted touches. Warm and gentle in the mouth, with soft but persistent tannins in perfect balance with the alcohol
This Sauvignon Blanc from California is a little fruitier than it is in France, and a little lighter in body and color than a typical Chardonnay. This very different wine has great notes and flavors of Pears, melons and green apples
This medium-bodied wine offers notes of red cherry, boysenberry, raspberry, vanilla, toast, caramel and baking spice.
