Style: Smooth & Supple
Delicious Grenache - great example of how bright and refreshing the varietal can be. Yet this wine had depth to it as well. This is one of my favorite wineries and their Grenache really holds up. Great wine for gourmet pizza, pasta with a tomato-based sauce or just sitting on your porch...

so tempting to drink this now because it has all those delicious floral and spice notes on the nose, but wait, because this gets even better with a few years in the cellar. I would totally buy a case, then drink one every year just to see it evolve. This wine has character, a sense of place and a whole bunch of layers that have you wanting to savor each sip, but also wanting to drink more! LOVE this wine!

Style: Big & Bold
This is a delicious wine - a big mouthfeel full of ripe berries and chocolate. Very plush, but balanced and a good kick of spice. This is a big, ripe wine, but with enough structure to hold up to food. A great by-the-fire wine or with some slow-roasted meats.

Style: Big & Bold
Delicious wine. The ripe fruit flavors (black cherry, blackberry, raspberry) are backed by an excellent herbal note - think mint and eucalyptus. Great acidity, medium tannins, lovely balance and a long finish. A group of us polished off two bottles faster than we should have - it was a little too easy going down. Great match for burgers, though I'd enjoy this with many different dishes as it is not too heavy, but rich enough to match with other bold flavors.

Stonier Reserve Chardonnay 2005
(this vintage is sold out)
Price: $37.99
This is definitely a richer, creamier style of Chardonnay than I expected. From a cooler climate, I was thinking it would be much more mineral-driven. And it does have that aspect, but the biscuit and hazelnut aromas and creamy textures dominate, though I was pleased by the acidity that backed it up. Not too heavy by any means, I thought it balanced rich flavors and textures with some good bright fruit and acidity. A good Chardonnay for some creamy sauces!

Freemark Abbey Cabernet Sauvignon 2007
(this vintage is sold out)
Price: $39.99
This is what '07 is known for: balance of fruit and structure. This wine definitely displays that. Lots of dark fruit up front, backed by a hint of cedar. Good, firm tannins, round mouthfeel and an excellent finish show these are ready for drinking now OR evolving for a few more years. One I'd love with a juicy steak, lamb or other hearty meal.
