Grapefruit orange color, zesty and light with a very nice flavor balance of steel/oak. Easy drinking.

This is great, as was the 2007 Dry Creek Valley AVA Zin (non vnyd designate) from Dashe I tasted earlier in the year. Blackberry color. Briary, rhubarb aromatics. It's dry and rings with a succulent acidity that is at once refreshing and tantalizing. Chalky but not aggressive tannin, purple-fruited, with dry herbs in the middle. Worth seeking out!

Deep yellow. Full and viscous ripe floral notes. On the palate lingering matchstick (barrel fermented) honeysuckle, pineapple, and mellow apricot. Delightful viognier. Great packaging too.
Also tasted 2011 Touriga Nacional Reserve. Deep rose color with subdued chalky aromas. On the palate: Stoney with tart raspberry, ripe citrus, dried herbal and lightly lavender notes. Super balance and lingering chalky finish. Paired perfectly with homemade pizzas!
