Tasting notes

The 2013 J. Schram Rosé instantly pleases the eye with its copper tinged, subtle salmon color. Opening aromas of apricot, peach, and passionfruit are balanced with notes of raspberry, marzipan, and vanilla custard. On the palate, deep rich layers of cherry, candied pineapple, and rhubarb compote intermingle with flavors of apricot preserve and apple pie. Finishing with a creamy and coating palate, this wine is truly a celebration for the senses."

"The 2012 J. Schram opens with aromas of caramelized pineapple, dried orange peel, ginger, and toffee, enhanced by notes of lemon curd, honey and brioche. The elegant and lingering palate delivers elements of baked apple, orange and pineapple upside down cake, layered with flavors of white peach and graham cracker on the finish."

"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 Jamie opens with captivating aromas of boysenberry, vanilla and dark chocolate, with hints of black raspberry purée and coffee. The palate welcomes lush red and black fruits including blackberry and cherry, mingled with layers of star anise, baking spice, tobacco and wild thyme. The body is supported by finely grained tannins and a well-structured finish."

"The 2018 Red Cap Cabernet Sauvignon welcomes aromas of cranberry, brambly raspberry, and dark chocolate, intermingled with dried violet, forest floor, and sage. The palate starts with flavors of fresh red berry, Bing cherry, roasted coffee, cola spice and pine, leading to a dense center with a tangy, delicately balanced acidity."

"The 2019 Keefer Ranch Pinot Noir exhibits aromas of cherry, blackberry, cranberry and lavender, with a lingering whisp of strawberry. The palate opens with tangy acidity that drives delicious layers of brambly raspberry, sour cherry, rhubarb and vanilla, with elements of Madagascar vanilla that are supported by intergrated tanins."

"The 2019 Hyde Pinot Noir emits beautiful aromas of strawberry, pomegranate, bing cherry, and brambly blackberry, with a touch of black pepper in the background. A juicy entry on the palate supports vibrant flavors of black raspberry, plum and milk chocolate, with a hint of baking spice that is carried through to a balanced resolve on the finish.
