Ivy Rosé de Syrah
"A gorgeous spiced cranberry nose explodes on the palate with white pepper and Melon. A brilliant dry rosé."
- Ellen Landis, Riverside International
Lake County Sauvignon Blanc
"The dramatic tropical fruit (tangerine, mango) aroma of this wildly spicy wine is so enticing it's impossible not to like now. It will change over time to display its Lake County-ness, but for the next several months it will be just so exotic, it will be hard to put down."
Dry Creek Valley Viognier
"In this well-made white, half of the wine was stainless-steel fermented, the other half barrel-fermented. Honeyed aromas of almond and a viscous, medium-bodied texture build weight toward the finish, while never becoming cloying. Vanilla and apricot round out the profile, buoyed by crisp acidity."
- Wine Enthusiast
Laguna de Santa Rosa Pinot Noir
"A beautifully elegant wine that improves markedly in the glass with a silky feel. Mouth-watering acidity with a mix of red fruit and spice that holds through a sustained finish."
- Riverside International
"Brilliant, jammy blackfruit and spices with black pepper notes on the nose; a generous ripe fruit flavor and soft, though structured, mouthfeel, and a touch of vanilla bean on the finish."
- Buechsenstein, John
"Beautiful well done varietally correct, savory spices”
- North Coast Wine Challenge
