Deep ruby in the glass, this cabernetSauvignon commands attention from the moment it is poured. Rich, luscious scents of sweet berry fruits entice the nose, opening to wisps of cola, licorice and spice. An intense core of ripe blackberry and boysenberry greets the palate, giving way to notes of cassis, vanilla and earth. Firm tannins and food-friendly acidity balance the plush fruit, leading to a long, pleasant finish.
The intense character and complex nature of this Cabernet Sauvignon is a strong partner for meat dishes such as beef stew and roasted venison. Try it also with a flavourful starter, such as gorgonzola and walnuts, or a simple dessert, like espresso gelato.
This wine was made exclusively with Chardonnay from the Santa Lucia Highlands, where early-morning sun and cooling afternoon breezes create an ideal environment for the varietal. A lovely hue of pale gold, this Chardonnay opens to a nose of golden apple, tropical fruit and toasted oak. A sip reveals flavors of pear, peach, vanilla and pineapple.This medium-bodied wine has a creamy mouthfeel and firm acidity, making it a perfect partner for cream-based pasta dishes, poached salmon with mango chutney and holiday turkey.
A boldly aromatic Pinot Noir opens with notes of cherry and dark chocolate, giving way to a hint of smoky oak and light rose petal. 12 months of aging in 100% French oak lends notes of sandalwood and cardamon on the mid-palate giving a finish reminiscent of fresh baked blueberry pie. This full-bodied, finely balanced wine marries velvety tannins with crisp acidity.
