July 2017
Electric-pink color and piercing acidity add to the unique personality  of this bold angular Cabernet Franc rosé. Tart sour-cherry and raspberry flavors are pristine and primary, but nuanced with lingering hints of bramble and savory herb. This is a refreshingly substantive style of rosé to enjoy with even heartier fare well into the fall months.  reviewed 7/1/2017  Anna Lee C. Iijima


2012 Riesling Tango Oaks Vineyard – 91 points

Perfumed and elegant, this wine is a highlight within the producer’s line up of consistently well-made wines. Waxy honeycomb and floral aromas accent fresh green notes on this off-dry Riesling. It’s lean in style, yet plush with sweet white peach and melon flavors. Finishes long with a lingering spray of honeysuckle.
