Calafia - Proprietary Blend
A nice blend of cabernet, malbec and petit verdot. Flavorfull and complete, well made with a mid length finish, nice nose, and good mouthfeel.
Nickel & Nickel - Cabernet Sauvignon John C Sullenger Vineyard
A very good wine. Plum and cherry, mingled with a bit of coffee, and light vanilla. Good mouthfeel, quite silky, soft tannins, should continue to mature nicely for some time by quite drinkable now.
Dutton-Goldfield - Gewurztraminer Green Valley Vineyard
nice wine, very drinkable, and with a degree of subltly on the palate.
Ox Eye Cabernet Franc
a nice inexpensive wine from Virginia with a lot of character and good delineation. Ripe fruit with a hint of vanilla.
Avignonesi - Vino Nobile di Montepulciano Riserva Grandi Annate
extraordinary. has that classic montepulciano blend of rustic flavor. Very bright, mature but not old. A bit, but not too much, port like. If there is any 97 left in the world which has not been consumed, buy it. You will not be disappointed. Some years left to go, and quite special - maybe the best wine ever made at this estate.
