  Frostwatch Chardonnay
The nose offers nutty, citrus elements and ripe red apple combined with (not too much) elegant French oak. On the palate, the wine is rich and round all the way through with flavors of citrus, vanilla and custard. The wine is well integrated and maintains a moderate degree of acidity, it improves with air and is best when not over chilled.
  Frostwatch Merlot
Still a bit tight, this wine will improve with airing. Nonetheless, it is rich and elegant with aromas of coffee, cedar, red and black fruits. It has ripe red fruit flavors coupled with silky tannins and moderate acidity. The wine is smooth and well integrated with a generous mid-palate and finish. It should be at its best between 2007 and 2010.
  Frostwatch Zinfandel
A great summer red. Aromas tend toward a mix of floral elements and ripe red fruits including raspberry, red currant and cherry. On the palate, the wine is laden with sweet summer fruits and offers ripe chewy tannins. An elegant, medium bodied wine with good natural acidity, this zinfandel will pair well pizza, red pastas and medium pork dishes.
