Dusty link pink color with orange hues shows off this rosés Provençal inspiration. A blend of Grenache and Mourvèdre provide complex floral notes of rose petal and jasmine and lead to crisp rush of citrusy grapefruit and cucumber water. Beautiful and balanced structure and mouth feel is held together by a wet stone like minerality. Serve really cold (45 F) to highlight this rosés zingy and palate satisfying acidity. Unlike many rosés, this wine will continue to evolve over the next 5 years.
An elegant and seductive perfume of white peach, ginger, and dried sage ascends, leading to a rush of Asian pear, lemon marmalade, and tropical lychee flavors. A layer of crushed chalk minerality and brioche-like toastiness emerges as the wine opens in the glass. Delightfully balanced with a bright and zingy acidity, backed by a rich and full-bodied texture that allows this Sauvignon Blanc to get better with each sip.
The velvet-throttled "Rallye 76" is a beautifully layered and complex Cabernet Sauvignon that amplifies the elegance and power of the Valley’s East Benchlands.
Rich and seamless, this high-toned wine delights with notes of dark berry, roasted espresso beans and spice box. Integrated aromas of curry, white pepper and anise delicately etch against a backdrop of chocolate and rich leather.
The name recalls the power and thrill of Monaco’s racing history, while the wine itself speaks with a refined and unmistakable California accent.
The 2014 On Q "Appassionata" Cabernet is dense, dark and inky blue/purple in the glass. Dark fresh fruit, with huckleberry, blackberry, plum, red cherry and violet, lead the charge out of the glass. As it slowly uncoils, subtle notes of cocoa nib, star anise, fennel bulb, and graphite - finishing with lingering hints of baking spices such as coriander, cinnamon and vanilla inter-mixed which chocolate and espresso stemming from the well-integrated French oak barrels where it underwent extended elevage for 28 months. As the second, third and fourth wave of flavors burst forth on your palate, you begin to comprehend how the fragrant bouquet and palate are working together to create a memorable tasting experience. Extremely approachable for a young wine, polished tannins, as well as seductively promising complexities yet to come, the structure is intertwined with tart acidity induced by long hang-time from the cools hills of Coombsville. Drinkable now but will benefit with more bottle aging and should drink well for 20-25 years
The 2015 "Appassionata" displays an incredibly opaque, dark purple core with hints of magenta and ruby on the rim. The nose delights with aromas of black currant, blueberry, blackberry, black cherry, and violets over complex secondary notes of cacao, tobacco, a touch of wet leather, crushed earth, a kiss of ground coffee, finely crushed stones, vanilla bean and exotic baking spices. This forward-style Cabernet will drink at its finest over the next 5-7 years.
The 2016 "Appassionata" displays an incredibly opaque, purple core with hints of magenta and ruby on the rim. The nose delights with aromas of blackcurrant liqueur, blueberry, blackberry, black cherry and violets over complex secondary notes of cacao, tobacco, a touch of wet leather, crushed earth, a kiss of ground coffee, finely crushed stones, vanilla bean and exotic baking spices.
Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon displays notes of prunes, spice cake, plum pudding and blueberry preserves with touches of red currant jelly, dried herbs, tobacco and olives. Full-bodied, firm and chewy and with tons of fruit at the core, it finishes long and spicy.
The 2014 Malbec, from Stagecoach, is superb. Boisterous, exuberant and flamboyant to the core, the Malbec hits the palate with serious fruit intensity. Scents of rose petal, lavender, sweet spice and new French oak are front and center, with more mineral and savory notes develop with time in the glass. This is an especially opulent style with tons of near and medium term appeal. Drink 2016-2022.
2014 Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa Valley) is a delicious, juicy wine to drink now and over the next handful of years. Black cherry, plum, mocha, cloves, new leather and cedar give the 2014 much of its succulent, inviting personality. This is an especially bold, racy style, but it works. Drink 2017-2026.
Intense aromatics and rich, pungent red-toned fruit make a strong opening statement in the 2015 Cabernet Franc. Varietal notes are amped up in this sensual, fruity Cabernet Franc. I would prefer to drink the 2015 sooner rather than later, but there is more than enough depth to support at least a handful of years in the cellar.
