Böen Russian River Valley Pinot Noir 2017
Landmark Vineyards Overlook Pinot Noir 2015Aromatic and complex with ripe red cherry, strawberry jam, pomegranate, brown spice and attractive autumn forest and floral notes. The palate is crisp and beautifully balanced with a mix of ripe red fruit and spice on entry, with savory tobacco and leather notes and a broad mineral texture on the mid-palate. Attractive fruit, spice and savory elements interact through the finish, framed with wonderfully fine tannins. The 2015 Overlook Pinot Noir is an amazingly versatile food pairing wine that can be served with a diverse range of dishes from oak fire grilled salmon to pan seared five-spice duck breast or with grilled vegetables drizzled with olive oil, a few drops of balsamic glaze and freshly cut herbs.
Orin Swift 8 Years In The Desert Red 2017Dark garnet with a lucid rim, the wine exhibits aromas of briar fruit, ripe blackberry and dark plum with a tinge of minerality and charred meat. Brawny on the entry, it has an equally big mid-palate with complex flavors of ripe brambly fruit, a touch of earth and notes of espresso bean. Still massive through to the finish with soft drying tannins, the unique varietal characteristics of the blend clearly reveal themselves over time.
Austin Hope Cabernet Sauvignon 2017Dark ruby in color, the 2017 Austin Hope Cabernet Sauvignon expresses aromas of freshly picked blueberries, ripe black cherries, subtle notes of roasted coffee, cocoa and dried spices. On the palate, the luscious supple tannins are powerful yet modern in style with layered flavors of juicy blackberry and red fruit, nuances of black pepper, clove and vanilla bean round out the long smooth finish. It's full-bodied and rich, balanced by fresh acidity and polished tannins.
