Bramble and lavender leap out of the glass, with just enough hint of saddle leather to make one think of a relaxing ride through the California desert. The mid-palate is supple but with enough structure to stand, and the tannin is holding well, with a pull that invites one to drink more.
Uncommon to California concrete tanks became all the rage in France after WWll due to the high prices of oak and stainless steel. The concrete, porous unlike stainless steel produces a slightly softer acidity. Notes of lemongrass and grapefruit linger on the palette. With a crisp bright clean finish, this seems to be the perfectly balanced white Bordeaux varietal.

50% Merlot, 50% Petit Verdot
Raspberry and cherry nose with a hint of vanilla and touch of leather, this wine is light bodied through the middle of the palate, with notes of lavender and oak that carry through the finish. The tannin lingers, creating a suppleness that stays pleasant long after the last sip.
An encore to the previous vintage; this vibrant wine exudes characters of black cherry, ripe black plums and dark fruits harmonized by cedar, toffee and rich vanilla. Elegant fine tannins are framed by a velvety texture and silky smooth finish.
