2020 Sauvignon Blanc

TASTING NOTES:

This inaugural release of 2020 Hindsight Sauvignon Blanc is an artfully crafted expression of classic Napa Valley Terroir – vibrant ripe stone fruit, green apple, lime peel, and hints of freshly cut grass backed by delicate floral highlights. The aromas jump right out of the glass! Subtle creamy notes are in perfect harmony with the crisp fresh entry and are accentuated by a citrus zest finish. The wine was blended with a touch of Viognier to give texture and to balance the myriad of elements for a wonderfully refreshing wine. Sunshine in a glass!

2018 Retrospective

Delicate fresh and dried fruit aromas set the tone for this wonderful blend of the classic Bordeaux varieties. This wine brings to mind wines from the “Right Bank”. The delicate garnet color hints at the delicacy of the mouth feel and moderate tannin levels. Soft red fruit flavors blend nicely with balanced acidity to provide a very approachable, generous wine. The 2018 Hindsight Retrospective is a wonderful choice for current consumption or 8-10 years aging in the cellar.

2018 Chardonnay

This 100% Chardonnay opens with aromas of green apple, pear and peaches. These aromas follow through to the palate, along with citrus and mineral notes. The wine is crisp and clean, with a hint of creaminess on the mid palate and a long, lingering finish.

2017 Retrospective

A rich ruby-garnet color denotes the deep and serious concentration of this wine. The combination of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot have produced a complex array of fruit and oak nuanced aromas and flavors. Pomegranate, currants and black cherries waft from the glass with hints of dark chocolate, orange peel and sweet baking spices. The architecture of the wine is elegant, but with robust tannins demonstrating a structure which is both accessible and built to age gracefully.

2015 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon

Classic ruby-garnet tones dominate the color of this wine typical of a well extracted Cabernet in an intensely concentrated vintage. A bouquet of exotic spices with notes of black currants and Madagascar vanilla pervade the wine’s aromatics. Ripe plums and blackberry flavors intertwine with notes of violets and cacao to produce a Cabernet that is both intriguing and captivating.

2017 Cabernet Sauvignon

Dark ruby-crimson tones dominate the color of this wine with highlights of fuchsia, denoting a youthful brightness. Concentrated notes of cranberry, red cherry and blackberry pervade the wine’s aromatics with nuances of mocha, caramel and expresso imbued into the wine from 20 months of aging in French oak. The palate is both plush and vibrant and restates the elegant combination of fruit and spice aromas. Chewy tannins form the foundation of this rich mid-palate and extend well into the lush and sophisticated finish.

2015 Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon

Rich aromas of cranberry compote and blackberry jam are laced with sweet baking spices and mocha. The flavors of concentrated fruit are bracketed by vanilla oak and spice and lead to a silky mid palate. The lush finish echoes the jammy fruit and toasty oak and licorice, enticing one to pour a second glass.
