Tasting notes

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 2017 J. Davies Estate "jd" Cabernet Sauvignon's aromas of raspberry, black plum and mountain sage are accentuated by cocoa powder, cinnamon and milk chocolate. The palateâs lush entry of cherry and plum precedes a creamy mid-palate. A juicy center of blackberry compote is infused with a hint of nutmeg, culminating with a finish of integrated tannins."

"The 2017 Davies "hyde Vineyards" Pinot Noir emits beautiful aromas of red cherry, baked strawberry and vanilla, combined with a touch of cinnamon and cocoa powder. On a backbone of supple tannins, the lush midpalate extends with flavors of cherry compote, caramel and graham cracker."

"The 2016 Blanc de Noirs expresses generous aromas of peach, toasted almond and fresh red apple, which gradually layer with fragrances of strawberry, citrus blossom and marzipan. A juicy entry generously coats the mid-palate with orange and vanilla spice, followed by crisp and tart flavors of raspberry, grapefruit and lemongrass. A lively and balanced acidity gives way to a clean, fresh and mouthwatering floral and mandarin orange finish.
