Cambria Winery “Katherine’s Vineyard” Santa Maria Valley Chardonnay 2017
Fresh fruit and floral aromas dominate the nose; pink grapefruit, tangerine, citrus blossom, and apple flavors are complemented by a bit of wet stone. The oak influence creates a nice mid-palate, the wine shows a balanced acidity that carries through the long finish.

Impressively fresh entry. Balanced, with good acidity, soft tannins and marked notes of red fruit. Good fruit expression and balsamic notes from the oak ensure a long, pleasant finish.

Hearst Ranch Winery “Bunkhouse” Paso Robles Cabernet Sauvignon 2016
2016 “Bunkhouse”Cabernet Sauvignon opens with ripe black plums, blueberries and cassis notes plus suggestions of Chinese five spice, potpourri and bay leaves. Medium-bodied, with a good amount of youthful, muscular fruit, it has a well-played backbone of grainy tannins and just enough freshness on the long finish.
This wine’s intensity and structure will evolve in a positive manner for years to come.
A refreshing approach to the grape offering red currant and black plum alongside an earthy elegance of gravel and wood on the nose. It’s well balanced on the palate, with flavors of ripe red fruit, wood spice, dried herb and tobacco.
