7 Deadly Wines – 7 Deadly Zins Zinfandel
Sinful indeed, the 2017 Old Vine Zinfandel is full-bodied and seductive. Heaps of jammy berry fruit are followed by aromas of leather, oak and spice notes. On the palate the wine is round and layered showing flavors of dark fruits, currants and toffee through a lingering spice-touched finish.
Ghost Pines – Pinot Noir
Far from your typical, light-bodied Pinot, the Ghost Pines Pinot Noir is an altogether bigger, bolder expression. Crafted from grapes grown in Sonoma and Monterey Counties, this Pinot is smooth, with intense flavor and richness and a vibrant, deep red color. You’ll notice notes of cherry pie, pomegranate and ripe plum. From the oak, you get suggestions of vanilla, baking spice and freshly roasted coffee beans. On the finish: plush tannins, round mouthfeel and cocoa.
Ste Michelle Wine Estates – Prayers of Sinners and Saints Chardonnay & Red Blend
“Prayers of Saints” Chardonnay is tempting for the saint in all of us – light, bright and refreshing, with a touch of softness. “Prayers of Sinners” Red Blend is for the sinner in all of us – the dark side that craves decadent, smooth, and luxurious red wine. Whether you’re a sinner or a saint, we’re all the same at the core. The truth will be revealed in the dark.
Orin Swift – Palermo Cabernet Sauvignon
A dark crimson with a blue band, the nose presents immediate aromas of boysenberry, currants, graphite, cedar, fir ash and vanilla. Seamless on the entry with resounding energy, the mid-palate features lush blackberry and bing cherry as well as a hint of sweet red licorice. Long, complex tannins punctuate the finish with an elegant and tapering note of black tea.
