"Friendly cherry paste and licorice notes are laced with a subtle lavender hint. Offers an easy, silky finish. Grenache and Syrah. Drink now. 4,000 cases made, 200 cases imported. -JM" (WS)

"Attractive, fresh, lemon-peel and grilled-mango aromas lead to a palate that has beautifully fresh peaches and nectarines. Subtle, biscuit and pastry notes to close. Beautiful wine. Drink now." (JS)

"Ripe, sun-kissed plum and cherry are accented by caramelized sugar in this juicy, primary red. It's creamy and full bodied with soft acidity, but a touch of granite lends elegance. A pleasant bite of tannins gives structure to the finish. Drink now–2022. -Anna Lee C. Iijima" (WE)
