2016 Kelby James Russell Rose – 88 points

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


2009 Riesling Semi-Dry – 88 points

The nose on this off-dry Riesling is fresh and fragrant with the perfume of lemons, lime and orange blossoms. Intensely concentrated on the palate with sweet citrus juice flavors accented by a puckery lime zest astringency, it’s an excellent food-friendly pick to accompany a wide array of fare from raw fish to spicy Thai curries.
