The Paring Red Blend 2013
A dark and brooding cabernet sauvignon-based beauty. Gobs of smoky black fruit. Dusty and herbal notes emerge with air. With more time in the glass, attractive notes of baking spice arise. Remarkably powerful fruit on the attack followed closely by massive structure. Ample fine-grained tannins that completely coat the palate with a gentle hold. The next day this wine becomes luxurious and hints at the epic future ahead. An enormous, yet ultimately refined wine for the classic California cabernet lover, the tannin fanatic, the steak aficionado and the patient cellar tender.
Cliff Lede Sauvignon Blanc 2016 BottleWinemaker Note: The 2016 Sauvignon Blanc is loaded with aromas of Meyer lemon, short bread, honeysuckle, ginger, and tangerine. Spring blossoms of wisteria and orange abound in the upper register of the seductive perfume. The full-bodied, coating mouthfeel expands out on the palate with a rich crème brûlée-like texture as unctuous notes of Bosc pear, orange marmalade, and lavender honey coalesce along the long, satisfying finish.
