The 2017 Vermillion red blend has a very bright and ultra-lively nose showcasing raspberry coulis, dark fruit, brambled blackberry and black tea. The palate is broad, with fine tannins giving way after some air; while it shows a plush mouthfeel, layers of red and dark fruits, garrigue, coriander and middle eastern spices, all coming together in a mile long finish.
As with other 2015 Cabernets, the Oakville is startling for its sheer size and weight. The older vines deliver classic black raspberry, licorice, espresso bean and crushed stones in the nose and on the palate. The tiny yields are responsible for the intensity of the color and structure this year. This beautiful wine should show well upon release, but a year or two (or a decade) of cellar time will help the wine show its best.
"Lori's Lucky Penny" Sauvignon Blanc opens with exquisite aromas of crisp white stone fruits and flintiness. Gentle swirling brings out the bright citrus notes and hints of passion fruit. The wine enters the palate with white nectarine, wet stone and lemon oil, a signature of "Lori's Lucky Penny". The high-acid fruit profile is flawlessly balanced by the rich texture given from the tightest grain water-bent barrels. This unique stave-bending method allows us to let the fruit shine while still adding brilliant texture and complexity. This is French oak integration at its very finest.
The 2016 vintage was ideal for Bordeaux varietals on Mt. Veeder. The growing season saw little fog and the fruit ripened along a nearly perfect curve. The 2016 Reserve-style Cabernet is bold and perfectly balanced. Dark fruit and mineral undertones create an experience that excites with a fresh midpalate and finishes with deep complexity.
This radiant Sauvignon Blanc presents with pale straw yellow with hints of green hues. Pristine fruit is showcased on the nose, where this wine gives generously of pink grapefruit and lime citrus aromas with a subtle thread of green guava. In the cellar, minimal intervention yields a vivid expression of freshness on the palate with flavors of grapefruit and lime zest zinging through the finish to create a wine of agility, brightness and devotion to its essence.
