Rachael’s blend has an abundance of maple and cedar in the nose, which is backed up by elegant yet rich flavors of cola and tea roses. This lovely wine has light tannins and a soft center.
Nicole’s blend combines Pinot Noir grapes from Carmel Valley and Santa Lucia Highlands. The nose has a hint of brown sugar and toasted grain and the flavors are replete with gooseberries. Medium tannins give this wine extra length on the palate and provide excellent aging potential.
