The intensity of the small berries- and excellent juice-to-skin ratios- reminded us of the profundity of the Mariana Trench, the deepest part of the ocean, where our Leviathan is truly at home. Leagues above on the water's surface, we were able to work the lines, set the sails, and ultimately capture the potential of this epic vintage. The result of our enological voyage is a wine as American as baseball, and as Yogi Berra would have said, "It's like déjà vu all over again." Find yourself with steady legs in port, and a bountiful glass brimming with aromatics of cigar box, brambly fruit and cacao. The palate gives way to an even-keeled expression of cherries, violets, umeboshi, savory tannins and licorice. In no time, you will be waxing sailor lore with the best of them! And reaching for more, hand over fist!
Based on Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, and Syrah brought up in 25% new French oak, the 2017 California Red Wine sports a deep ruby/purple color as well as a rich, powerful, opulent style that certainly puts a smile on your face. Notes of currants, chocolate, spice box, and earthy, herbal notes all emerge from this sexy, seamless effort that has full-bodied richness, ripe tannins, and outstanding finish. It’s a smoking value to enjoy over the coming 7-8 years.
Blackberry and asphalt aromas with some violets and rose petals. Medium to full body. Some carbon to the dark fruit. Tasty and delicious. Chewy now, but we like it already. Drinkable now, but will improve with age.
The 2018 Red Wine is a plump, juicy Cabernet Sauvignon-based wine to drink now and over the next handful of years. The 2018 is not quite as flamboyant as some other recent editions, but it packs plenty of punch. A rush of dark red/purplish fruit, crushed rocks, menthol, rose petal and spice build into the intense, layered finish. The 2018 can be enjoyed upon release, but it is at its best with an hour or two of aeration.
