  Big John's Vineyard Zinfandel
Ruby-red to plummy colors. Jammy blackberry and cherry aromas, along with a bit of vanillin and sage spice. Flavors are deeper than previous vintages and focus more on the jam and plummy characters. The acids are well-balanced with the tannins and the wine finishes long and clean.
  Cabernet Sauvignon
Cherry to ruby red in color. Raspberry and blackberry aromas combine with cassis and herbal aromas. Flavors mirror the raspberry aromas as well as the herbal characters. Well-balanced with soft tannins and a cherry finish flavor.
  Newsome-Harlow Meritage
A very complex wine with vivid fruit aromas of blackberry paired with spice complexion of eucalyptus, anise, cardamon and nutmeg. Dried cherry flavors combine with even spicier flavorings of nutmeg and tobacco. Deep red in color, this wine is showing dry, firm tannins that are beginning to soften. As a result the mid-palate is full bodied and complex and the wine is just now beginning to yield a lengthy ripe berry finish.
  Sauvignon Blanc
Fermented cold in stainless steel, then bottled early for crisp acidity and freshness. Aromas of grapefruit and lilac flower are present in the beginning, along with a hint of fresh-cut grass. Flavors mirror the grapefruit and also show a bit of citrus fruit. The mouthfeel is bright and crisp due to a substantial acid structure and the lilac aromas linger as the wine finished cleanly.
