Appellation: Paso Robles, CA
Tasting Notes: The deep garnet hue sets the stage for a rich entry leading to a weighty, full-bodied palate, accompanying big, drying tannins and a brush of sweet oak. Structured and stylish, this wine can be easily paired with hearty meats, grilled vegetables, and complements a wide range of spices.
Goes with this CD: Moutin Reunion Quartet's Red Moon

Varietal: 100% Folle Blanche Appellation: Sonoma Valley, CA
TA: .4 g/100 ml

Tasting Notes: Green apple-lemon and a mineral alpine wild flower aroma sits against a backdrop of lightly herbaceous honey. The mouth is typically a little tarter than most white wines, with delicate tannins and sweet mid-palate.
