The Wines: (Spring 1996)
1994 was in general an outstanding year for grapes. Water was in short supply and the weather was hot. The grapes came in very darkly colored and full of flavor.
1994 Pinot Noir:
A classic Pinot Noir nose followed with cherry/raspberry flavors. This
wine was aged eight months in new French Oak made especially for Pinot
Black cherries and oak start the nose of this wine and follows through
on the taste. In addition there are flavors of black pepper with a
hint of anise. This wine spent 15 months on American Oak.
1992 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon:
We lightly filtered this full bodied wine so none of the flavors will
be missed. Two years of oak blend well with the fruit of 1992.
1995 Late Harvest Semillon:
The nose is of botrytis (Noble Rot) and pears. The flavor is also of
botrytis and pears.
