The estate grown Reserve Chardonnay was fermented in French and Eastern European oak barrels, then aged for 13 months. Not usually my cup of tea. I like more minerally stuff. But this was only slightly buttery, showing only a hint of oak. Rich, complexly. Really sophisticated. Excellent!
Their estate Syrah is made in a French style, aged one year in American Puncheons (large barrels) and smaller French oak barrels. This dry red is lighter than you might expect if you're used to more plum and prune from California Syrahs. But as an easterner you shouldn't expect that. This wine has plum, a hint of Cassis, and pepper. It's almost like a Pinot. It's very lovely, with an excellent, peppery finish.
This is their "Port Style" meritage wine made from 29% Merlot and 71% Cabernet Franc. The wine is aged in new American oak barrels for 10 months and has 18% alcohol and 5% residual sugar. A very nice port!
Layers of honey and peach make for a wonderful golden dessert wine with just thr right amount of sweetness and acidity. Very nice!
