2015 Single Barrel Reserve Pinot Noir- This Reserve wine is a specially selected barrel that showed the most complete and profound representation of the site and vintage. This Pinot Noir spent 20 months in a new French oak barrel, giving it extra depth and complexity. The aromas are led by dark plum with hints of blueberry, along with cedar and cacao and underlying layers of clove, cardamom and floral notes. The palate is medium bodied and displays excellent balance and length.
2016 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon- Deep, dark black fruits lead off backed by layers of pomegranate and raspberry beneath. Fine oak spice notes of cacao nib and coffee bean provide the backbone along with savory black olive and lifted violet aromas; focused intensity and structure on the palate with ripe, almost liqueur-like dark berry fruit, ripe tannins and a finish that expands on the palate and reveals more of the black currant and pomegranate fruit, promising many years of development.
2018 Reserve Merlot- This bright ruby red wine shows color variation brought on by time in barrel and bottle. On the nose find aromas of raspberry, red currant, cacao and rosemary. Dense and delicious flavors of black cherry, black berry and ripe salmonberry are highlighted by notes of anise and flamed orange peel. The mouthfeel is rich but the pleasing acidity balances weight and refreshment. The wine finishes dry with concentrated flavors of baked black fruits, ripe red cherry, notes of caramel and persistent tannins.
