2012 Freemark Abbey Cabernet Sauvignon

From the Wine Maker – “Opaque, dark ruby color introduces this wine that expresses dark fruit aroma and flavors. With spicy sweet oak complexity, the wine exudes dark fruit such as blackberry, black currant, blueberry and dark cherry. There are nuances of dark chocolate, chocolate berry truffle dusted with cocoa powder, cola, aromatic cedar, cinnamon, clove, graham crackers and a hint of tobacco. The body is very full with a soft entry, coupled with dark cherry/berry flavors that develop from start to finish. With great texture and mouth feel, this cabernet is full bodied, rich and opulent. In one word…. delicious.”

Rich and robust, this wine can be enjoyed with a variety of foods such as hearty pasta dishes and roast meats.

2013 Zin 91 Old Vine Zinfandel

This great Zin is dry and spicy, with blackberry, currant, herb and coffee flavors that finish with a hint of raisins.

From the Wine Maker – “The aromas are classic of an old vine Zinfandel: spicy and jammy. Notes of black pepper, raspberry, and boysenberry lead to hints of cinnamon, sandalwood, and clove to create the bouquet. On the palate, the wine carries over the spicy notes, as well as black cherry and cassis flavors. The oak-aging gives it a supple and velvety texture. Fruit-forward with balanced acidity and alcohol.”

Pairs well with an array of dishes, from vegetable lasagna to hearty beef stews. Also excellent with roasted and grilled meats.

2010 Plowbuster Pinot Noir

Plowbuster is the second label of Pinot Noir, named for the soil these vines call home.  The earth is littered with bits of steel from several generations of plows,  Vine roots run so deep that irrigation is moot.  There are rocky red soils only a winemaker or a geologist could love.  An exceptional quality Pinot Noir, dark fruited, deep and earthy, and from a fantastic vintage for the Willamette Valley.

From the Wine Maker – “ Pure garnet in color with vibrant berry and brown spice on the nose. Dark cherry and cinnamon on the entry with a bright mid-palate that has classic pinot fine tannins and silky texture. Finishes nicely with a lilt of strawberry making it a wonderful match with game hens basted in quince sauce.”
