Deep purple/black color. Explosive aromas of ripe currant, red berries and smoked notes. Rich, powerful and voluminous on the attack, a huge mouthful of crème-de-cassis concentration, silken and juicy in the mid-palate with excellent length and persistence, and a long spicy well-balanced finish including toasted notes provided by the French wood.
This wine pairs excellent alongside rice dishes with meat, stewed meat, stewed vegetable, mushroom, poultry, sauces fish, smoked seafood, blue and cured cheese, red meat, roast and baked meat.
As assembly of each of the blocks and clones from their estate holdings within the Sta. Rita Hills and predominantly fermented as whole clusters. We have always viewed the stem as an inherent part of the cluster, much like a skeleton within a body. The approach is akin to cooking meat on the bone such chicken breast on the ribs. The outcome is that the stem’s participation acts like a corset to render the wine more stern and to lift up the fruit aromatic by fermenting largely as whole berries. The tannin architecture in the wine is also largely a stem derivative which substantiates the back of the palate and is more savory in nature much like tea or soy, but has aromas of pomegranate, white tea, and raspberry. Flavors of dried fig, white truffle and ripe cherry.
This is Greg Brewer's appellation blend rather than his single-vineyard expressions, but it's still incredibly dynamic and delicious. A fresh and fruity strawberry-slushie aroma is met with notes of crushed slate and star anise-spiced cookies on the nose. The palate is bright in flavors of slightly tart cherries and ripe cranberries, but then come juniper and pine needle on the midpalate. Acidity pumps into the pomegranate and menthol finish.
Sta. Rita Hills Chardonnay displays pale, golden color with aromas of lemon, kiwi, orange blossom, sweet basil. On the palate, the wine is fresh and clean with flavors of lemon, kiwi, orange blossom, sweet basil.
The Grenache and the Cinsault give the wine its color, intensity and softness. The Mourvèdre, Syrah, Muscardin and Vaccarèse give the wine its renowned ageing potential and dark, classic character. The Counoise, Picpoul and other varieties provide freshness, fragrance and aromatic quality.
"Powerful, with a round, almost creamy core of blackberry and raspberry fruit all layered with cocoa, sweet toast, mesquite and fig paste. Long and rich through the finish. Still quite primal, with lots in reserve. Best from 2010 through 2030." 95 points wine spectator
The 2017 vintage has a deep color. The pure and elegant nose suggests cherries, blackcurrants, spices, with floral notes, aromatic herbs (Bayleaf) and chocolate. The mouth is elegant, the tannins are ripe and fine, beautifully dense and concentrated structure, a seductive velvety texture enhanced with finely spicy fruit. The finish is long, held by elegant and coated tannins, harmonious and very persistent (fruit, spice, floral notes). A great vintage!
"A dark and winey style, offering a mix of plum, black currant and black cherry notes, infused with black tea, fruitcake and anise accents. Solidly built, vibrant and energetic from start to finish, this carries copious fruit easily through the lengthy finish. Grenache, Cinsault, Syrah, Mourvèdre and Counoise. Best from 2020 through 2040"- Wine Spectator
Beautifully bold and bright in color, the Les Cadrans de Lassegue is robust, complex, and well-balanced. Aromas of wild strawberries, raspberries, and a subtle woody note immediately emerge from the glass. The wine is smooth on entry, with a palate dominated by red fruits. Alongside the persistent flavor of red fruits, a striking minerality shines through from the old vines of Lassegue. A pleasurable wine that can be enjoyed young.
Blend: 65% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Franc, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon

Beautiful ruby color. On the nose there are aromas of berry jam, a hint of roasted coffee and dark fruits, affirming a wine that tastes young. The savory tannins are round and ripe. In the mouth, this wine is very harmonious with an elegant finish, light and fresh, despite the wine's power. You can start enjoying this wine for its fruit if you are impatient, or wait at least 5-6 years to enjoy its full beauty.
Pretty petal pink color with shiny undertones. This vintage instantly reminds of Provence with its beautiful aromas of fresh fruit and spring flowers. Airy and balanced, it delicately combines great freshness and complexity, and develops saline and mineral notes. Its long and intense finish is the signature of a rosé with incomparable elegance.
Thanks to the fruit of the Pinot Noir and the youth of the vintage, Hautes-Cotes de Nuits wines delight
the palate of the informed wine taster. With a steady and brilliant color, this wine offers a palette of heady aromas nuanced by red and black fruit. In the mouth, it astonishes with not only its length and power, but also with its fineness and generosity. In all circumstances it will accompany Burgundian cooking, but it can also surprise when paired with an inventive cuisine, such as a scented beef carpaccio or lamb mignon with a coriander crust.
"Silky and bright with fresh black raspberry and plum; tangy, juicy and balanced."- Tasting Panel
"“The 2018 Syrah Ex Post Facto is bold and beautiful. Dark plum, blueberry, lavender, licorice and cloves give this dark sepia-toned Syrah much of its dark expression. Time in the glass brings out hints of citrus and black pepper that brighten up the flavor profile nicely. The 2018 has real depth and intensity, not to mention tons of character. Greg Brewer gave the 2018 45-60 days on the skins, with virtually all whole clusters, followed by 18 months in barrel.” 94 Points Antonio Galloni
Pairs well with with beef, lamb or poultry.
A deep ruby red color. The nose evokes aromas of red fruit, blackberries, black cherries and licorice. In the mouth one finds hints of wild thyme and a finely structured wine that shows very good length.
"Bright violet. Intense dark berry and cherry compote aromas are complemented by suggestions of licorice and candied flowers. Palate-caressing black raspberry and bitter cherry flavors pick up peppery spice and lavendar qualities on the back half. Rich yet lively, showing no excess fat. The juicy, focused finish is given shape by silky, harmonious tannins and leaves behind a gently sweet dark berry note."- Vinous Media
Very dark in color. The nose is very delicate and powerful at the same time, with red fruit, blackcurrants, blackberries, spices, thyme and lavender. The bouquet is very elegant, rich and round, with figs, cherries, blackcurrants and stewed fruit, all with great acidity. The tannins are present but very delicate.
Pretty deep colour. The nose offers a beautiful aromatic complexity, marked by Grenache and a hint of blackcurrant brought by the ripe Syrah. On the palate, it shows complexity with tannins still present, but with finesse and elegance, and a beautiful freshness.
