2013 Sauvignon Blanc, Dry Creek, Andrews Vineyard -- $28

Loads of honeysuckle and limeade dominate the nose of this pale straw shaded wine. Aromas of kiwi and gooseberry fruit complement the range of citrus elements. The wine is round and mouth filling, with fresh melon, green apple and grapefruit on the palette. The acidity is bright, but balanced, and a long finish of candied lime and melon linger on the finish. This is a wine meant to be chilled and enjoyed in its youth.

This wonderful wine will hold extremely well over the next 6-7 years (2018-2019).

    2011 Merlot, Spring Mountain District -- $60

There is also prevalent minerality, mostly gravel with some dusty earth. Texturally, the wine is so soft and silky.  More red fruit and spice (clove and white pepper) are present on the palate. Firm chalky tannins begin to build early on,which is backed by nicely prevalent acidity. This merlot will hold strong for 9-10 years (2022-2023).

    2011 Cabernet Sauvignon, Spring Mountain District -- $75

    This opaque wine currently shows crushed violets, cocoa nibs and mixed black cooking spices. Some of the subtle minerality is only beginning to show. The palette is very plush and darker small berry fruit carries through here. Very firm chalky tannins begin to build on the palette, which is backed by firm acid. The 10% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petit Verdot bring extra levels of complexity to this wine. This is a deeper and firmer Cabernet than in previous years, a true classic mountain wine that will take time to show its best, 11-13 years (2024-2026).  Alcohol:14.1%
