92 points Wine & Spirits - Year's Best US Syrah & Rhône Red Blends
Inaugural vintage of this wine; our interpretation of the classic Chateauneuf du Pape wine of the southern Rhone valley. Limited quantity and may not be available in future vintages.

An elegant expression of this varietal. Vibrant with aromatics that are domianted by cherry kirsch and raspberries, with underpinnins of vanilla and violet.

This wine shows regal texture with age-worthy tannic structure. In its youth, this structure is striking, yet the abundantly lush fruit still dominates.
Aromas of caramel, raspberry and sweet lavender are released with each swirl in the glass. Herbaceous red fruit and chocolate kick off the flavor profile and are supported with a nice raspberry mid palate that fades to lengthy finish dominated by oak, cinnamon, and maple flavors beneath the beautiful dried fruit.
Our 2016 Muscat of Alexandria reveals enticing and exuberant aromas of mandarin blossoms, peach and honey. On the palate the flavors of ripe tropical fruits are layered harmoniously with zesty citrus undertones.
