2016 Zinfandel - Sweet Oaks

2016 Zinfandel

Pauba Road Vineyard, Temecula Valley

Medium dark ruby red in color. Aromas of black cherry, tobacco leaf and black licorice dominate, but suggestions of fig and currents come through as well. The wine is jammy/brambly with sweet cherry and berry notes. There is just enough acid to keep the fruit in check and give the wine a mouthwatering finish.

This is a rich, ripe Zinfandel with a round, glossy weight on the palate. Ideally suited to grilled meats such as brisket or baby-back ribs, this wine is perfectly at home at a barbeque.

2017 Chardonnay

Serreno Vineyard, Temecula Valley

Shimmering straw in color. The nose is bright and fresh with lemon-lime zest and golden apple aromas prevailing, due to stainless steel fermentation. There is also the suggestion of fresh brioche from time spent on the wine’s lees. The palate follows suit with additional apple and pear notes.

This light wine has a refreshing acidity and a clean, easy drinking finish. Enjoy with mild, flakey fish or with pasta in a light cream sauce.

2017 Chardonnay - Sweet Oaks Wine
2017 Viognier - Sweet Oaks Wine

2017 Viognier

Pauba Road Vineyard, Temecula Valley

Light straw to slightly yellow in color. The aroma absolutely screams Viognier with its expressive nose of white flowers, apricots, peaches and ginger. On the palate, this wine juxtaposes sweet, mouthwatering fruitiness with a crisp, acidic backbone that keeps it fresh and lively. Additional stone fruit character comes through in flavors of white peach, apricot and nectarine.

The wine finishes clean and long and with an exotic floral character. It should be enjoyed with equally exotic foods such as Indian chicken korma, Thai curries or spicy Greek dishes.

On the pallet, loads of sweet red fruits dominate here as well, followed by the same spice and earthiness found in the aroma of the wine. This wine finishes soft on the palate with enough acidity to keep it fresh but more on the velvety side.

“Crème De La Crème”

Pauba Road Vineyard, Temecula Valley

This wine is a pale yellow with a light golden hue. Aromas of toasty new French oak and vanilla meld with ripe orchard peaches with vanilla and spice.

This wine was fermented in both concrete tanks and French oak barrels and the two techniques add greatly to the complexity of the wine. The finish is soft and fresh and lingers for quite some time.
