Summer Club Tasting Notes
2019 Los Amigos Ranch Cabernet Franc
This vintage 2019, single vineyard Cabernet Franc from our famed Los Amigos Ranch is a stunner. Elegant dark plum purple hues show entice in the glass, while immediate hints of bright bing cherry and wispy mocha create a mouthwatering aromatic quality. The palate is full and a generous depth of mixed baking spices and sweet red currant dominate and give way to a light dried sage finish.
2021 Los Amigos Ranch Sangiovese
Located “at elevation” on western planted slopes of our Los Amigos Ranch and affectionately called “Sangio Hill”. This vineyard designated Sangiovese is fervently followed by wine lovers all over the world. A triumphant “new world” expression, this Sangiovese from the Chalk Hill Appellation, displays a dark brick red color with aromas of ripe strawberry, raspberry, cinnamon and vanilla spice. On the palate the wine is full with bright wild berries accented by a long finish of dried tobacco and lively cedar. This multi-layered wine is lovely and rich, able to be enjoyed with a meal or on its own.
2020 Reserve “Third Alarm” Pinot Noir (Red Wine Only Club)
The vintage 2020 expression of this barrel selection “reserve” Pinot Noir displays a light garnet color. Aromas of rose petals and violets awaken the senses, while cherry and vanilla flavors mix with lightly toasted oak and cocoa. The palette is layered and leads with strong dried cherry and a lingering finish of fresh strawberry, wild blueberry and subtle caramelized mushroom.
2020 Olivet Ranch Sauvignon Blanc (Mixed Club)
This beautiful straw-colored Sauvignon Blanc from the “home vineyard” on Olivet Ranch, leads with enveloping aromatics featuring a rich bouquet of lemongrass, melon, and a hint of jasmine.
