Leviathan Red Wine 2018
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
Winemaker Notes :
An intense mix of fresh boysenberry, black cherry and plum jump from the glass with cocoa powder, allspice and nutmeg. Its earthy elements of our rocky northern California hillsides include Bay Laurel, sage, cedar, dry red earth which speak to its origins. Supple and balanced tannins of this rich wine lead to a long savory finish with hints of graphite and star anise. It is approachable now and built to cellar.
Blackberry and asphalt aromas with some violets and rose petals. Medium to full body. Some carbon to the dark fruit. Tasty and delicious. Chewy now, but we like it already. Drinkable now, but will improve with age.
Faust Cabernet Sauvignon 2017 750mlWinemaker Notes The 2017 Faust Cabernet is a blend of their estate vineyards in Coombsville and Rutherford and mountain sourcing in Atlas Peak, Mount Veeder, and Howell Mountain. Intense yet fresh with juicy blue and black notes. Notes of dark chocolate and dried herbs seduce the palate while silky tannins and lifting acidity lead to a layered and lingering finish.
Roar Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir 2018 750mlWinemaker notes: Scents of lifted caramel and cream drift seamlessly through a core of cherry, berry, and warm leather. As the fruit expands into ripe melon and hints of plum on the palate, elements of forest floor and spice build into perfumed rose and tobacco leaf on the finish.
Penley Tolmer Cabernet Sauvignon 2018 750mlWinery Notes: Aroma. Fragrant and bright on the nose. A purity of black currant, anise and violet fruit- framed by savory notes of French oak. Palate. Medium bodied; a wine showing intensity, without heaviness. A generous core of juicy fruit with well-integrated chalky tannins and a seamless finish. Cellaring. A modern expression of Coonawarra Cabernet that is both ready to enjoy now, or reward sometime in the cellar.
