Tasting Set Includes:
- Catena Alta Chardonnay
This Chardonnay presents an intense greenish-yellow color. The nose offers ripe white fruit aromas such as pears and peaches that are interwoven with delicate citrus and floral notes, such as Jasmine. The palate shows rich and concentrated ripe pear, apple and apricot flavors with a light note of minerality. The wine finishes long and complex with crisp, mineral acidity.
- Jules Taylor Pinot Noir
Deep purple. Intense aromas of ripe plum, mulberries, and dark fruits with just a hint of toasty, earthy notes underneath. This is an intense little number with ripe mulberry and plum flavors. The mid palate is round and concentrated with the fruit balanced by earthy, savory, and spicy notes, suggesting this is a wine that will develop nicely over the coming years. It has loads of supple, finely managed tannins and the finish is long, spicy, and delicious.
- Raymond Reserve Selection Cabernet Sauvignon
This Cabernet Sauvignon opens with a beautiful bouquet of blackcurrants, espresso, and notes of violet. An array of dense dark fruit flavors of rhubarb, dark cherry, and blackberries are layered with blackcurrants, clove, and orange peel. This is a full bodied and structured wine with well-integrated and supple tannins and a richly textured finish that coats the palate.
