2012 Le Pich Sauvignon Blanc, Napa Valley, California

Juicy, lush, energized, buoyant. Ruby red grapefruit, Meyer lemon zest, Clementine’s and peach marmalade. Orange blossom, lemon thyme, tarragon and fresh cut grass.

2011 Gen5 Old Vine Zinfandel, Lodi, California

A delicious zin! The lively and well balanced ’11 Gen 5 Zinfandel comes up with charming and penetrating berries on the palate; beautiful finish.

2011 Domaine de Bila-Haut Occultum Lapidem, Cotes du Roussillon, France

Great dark garnet-red. The aroma is quite closed with a dominant of graphitic, leather, and then intense aromas of pepper, black fruits and scrubs while the palette is rich, dense, fleshy and solar.  The finish is sappy served by delicate tannins and a great freshness.

2011 Runquist Sangiovese, Amador County, California

Bright ruby red color with medium depth. Vanilla and cherry on the nose. Smooth like all Runquist wines. The vanilla and cherry continues on the palate. Sour cherry on the approach, transforming to almost a sweetness by the end. Very nice balance. Tannins are wonderfully full and complete. Lighter to medium body.

2012 Runquist Grenache, Silvaspoons Vineyard, Alta-Meso Lodi, California

Voted ‘Best Red Wine in Lodi 2013

Vivid violet-red color; gushy, high toned, strawberry coulis-like fragrance with smidgens of hazelnut-like wood complexities seeping out from the seams; and sharply defined, silky-fine texturing, giving the wine’s plump red berryishness a soft yet notably snappy, lip smacking, bright and lively feel.
