2015 Grenache, Bee Sweet Vineyard

Lively aromas of sumac, cinnamon, hibiscus, plum, lavender and turned earth make for a very compelling, layered and sexy entry to the nose of this bottling. The palate shows more restraint, with rosewater, tangy red-plum skins and tart pomegranate flavors, wrapped in taut tannins.

2015 Pinot Noir, Stone Corral Vineyard

(68% whole clusters and 60% new French oak) Pale Ruby. A highly expressive bouquet evokes ripe red fruits, cola, candied rose and vanilla, along with a smokey mineral overtone. Concentrated yet lively in the mouth, showing excellent clarity and spicy lift to the spice-laced raspberry liqueur, cherry cola and floral pastille flavors. Shows impressove tension and thrust on the subtly tannic finish, which hangs on with bright, mineral presence.
