Tasting notes

The 2012 J. Schram Rosé immediately pleases the eye with its copper tinged, pale salmon color. It opens with aromas of apricot and strawberry shortcake, balanced by aspects of can-died orange, peach, plum and vanilla wafer. Layers of cranberry, raspberry, cherry and green apple suffuse the palate, with honey and brown sugar adding additional complexity. Rich, vibrant with bright acidity, and closing with a well-integrated finish, this wine is truly a feast for the senses."

"The 2011 J. Schram opens with pleasant aromas of baked pear, lemon meringue and baked apple, enhanced by nuances of toffee and honey. The rich palate features fruitful elements of baked pineapple and Meyer lemon, layered with crystallized ginger. Good depth on the finish is driven by a backbone of lingering natural acidity."

"The 2012 Reserve opens with aromas of baked pear, caramel apple, honey, graham cracker and cinnamon toast that gain complexity with touches of marzipan and dried orange peel. Bright flavors of apricot and peach crumble are supported with a fresh acidity on the palate, and finish with toasty nuances of glazed orange, ginger and grilled pineapple."

"The 2017 J. Davies Estate Cabernet opens with rich aromas of black plum, red cherry and marionberry, accentuated by undertones of vanilla, cola spice, fresh bay leaf and mint. Firm but integrated tannins anchor the wines palate, where a broad entry of blueberry and milk chocolate is followed by flavors of fresh coffee and blackberry."

"The 2017 Renteria 360 Cabernet Sauvignon opens with aromas of blackberry and blueberry compote accentuated by touches of cola spice, fresh tobacco leaf, and espresso. The palate has a rounded entry with bright acidity and youthful tannins, offering notes of dark chocolate, and baking spice."

"The 2018 Goorgian Pinot Noir starts off with dense aromas of black cherry, and blackberry compote, followed by vanilla baking spice, and a touch of black tea. The balanced structure on the palate has a rich entry of blueberry and marionberry, with a long finish accentuated by nutmeg and cinnamon."

"The 2018 Hyde Pinot Noir emits beautiful aromas of Bing cherry, rhubarb and lavender, combined with a touch of milk chocolate. On a backbone of lively acidity, the broad midpalate opens with a juicy center of blueberry and extends with flavors of mocha and baking spices.
