Tasting notes

This J. Davies Estate 'Jamie' Cabernet Sauvignon unveils aromas of raspberry, red currant, plum, and blueberry pie, touched with layers of oregano, black pepper, tobacco leaf, lavender, toasted pecan, and dark chocolate. The palate presents a generous entry of juicy black cherry and blackberry, which builds to a balanced midpalate with hints of mocha and anise. The wines layered flavors are supported by well-structured tannins and a lingering finish."

"The 2014 J. Schram Blancs opens with vivid aromas of Meyer lemon, nectarine, golden apple, and poached pear, combined with nuances of Belgian waffle and vanilla cake. The juicy palate features broad elements of rich baked citrus, dried pineapple, and apple strudel, layered with marzipan and ginger. A bright, long finish is driven by a backbone of generous, fruitful acidity."

"This 2014 J. Schram Noirs exhibits lively aromas of apricot, poached pear, and baked apple, along with hints of lemon curd, spun honey, and vanilla. The palate delivers a round and juicy entry of baked peach, leading to a tart center with flavors of ripe nectarine and kiwi. Hints of sourdough toast and custard carry to the finish."

"The 2019 'Simpkins Vineyard' Cabernet Sauvignon entices with notes of black plum, acai berry and blueberry preserve, interlaced with hints of lavender, anise, vanilla and milk chocolate. The palate presents bright red pomegranate, ripe raspberry and dried cherry, with layers of mocha, cocoa powder and sandalwood, supported by silky tannins, that lead to a bright, clean finish."

"The 2019 'Renteria 360 Vineyard' Cabernet Sauvignon showcases aromas of raspberry and red cherry, combined with undertones of blackcurrant, cocoa powder and tarragon. A bright entry of mixed berry compote is carried across the palate with youthful tannins and notes of vanilla, nutmeg and sage."

"This Poseidon Vineyard Pinot Noir greets the nose with an attractive blend of red cherry, cranberry, and rhubarb, heightened with subtle notes of lemon verbena, black pepper, and tobacco leaf. A focused entry onto the palate reveals a tart and lively center, with flavors of strawberry, white cranberry, hibiscus, and a touch of cherry cola. The wine ends with a harmonious and a long-lasting finish.
