2007 Rancho Rossa, Casa Cuvee (Marsanne/Roussane) A blend of Marsanne and roussane, fermented in American oak for 11 months. Ripe pear and tropical fruit flavors with a touch of toast. 2009 Kief Joshua, Chenin Blanc A very aromatic and easy drinking white, with aromas of apple and honey. The apple reverberates on the palate with pleasant lemon and subtle grassiness. 2008 Canelo Hills, Sunrise(Nebbiolo/Syrah) Bright ruby color with faint violet, raspberry and tart cherry nose, this is a blend of Nebbiolo and Syrah in roughly equal proportions. It tastes of pomegranate and cranberry with a clear, crisp, acidic finish. 2007 Charron Vineyards, Syrah This Syrah has a nice inky black color and oaky backbone. Very similar to a fine Australian Shiraz. Full-bodied with a touch of sweet blackberry fruit wraps it all up nicely. 2010 Shadow, (fortified port style wine)
