• Impressive and delicious... Aromas of black cherry, hickory smoke and vanilla cookie lead into a palate of brown sugar, sea salt, caramel and black-cherry foam, all framed by polished tannins and just enough acidity.
  • Full-bodied yet elegant, Eberle?s 2018 Mill Road Vineyard Viognier has a classic floral bouquet of litchi, orange blossom, and honeysuckle, with flavors of apricot and peach, followed by a long, crisp finish. The wine pairs exquisitely well with a wide range of dishes from spicy Thai cuisines to grilled scallops, and the crisp acidity also balances out a rich and creamy pasta Alfredo or grilled shellfish with garlic wine butter sauce.

  • The 2017 vintage of Harvey + Harriet quickly became a fan favorite, and at a new price-point and how beautifully the 2018 vintage is already drinking... we believe that every wine-lover needs a case of this in their fridge! This wine is meant to be your every-day drinker. It is perfect to open on a Tuesday night with take out food, bring over to your neighbor's house to share at a summer potluck, or open a bottle (guilt-free) to enjoy just one glass while cooking dinner for your family. To quote critic Jeb Dunnuck, the 2018 vintage "sports a deep purple color as well as a powerful bouquet of ripe black fruits, tobacco leaf, smoked earth, dark chocolate, and Asian spice".

  • Powerfully Grenache on the nose: red cherry, wild strawberry, and star anise, with the Syrah providing a little tobacco-like herby savoriness. The mouth is deep and flavorful, with flavors of black cherry, pepper spice, and milk chocolate. Nice powdery Grenache tannins come out on the finish, leaving an impression of pithy cherry skin and wild herbs. Drink now and over the next decade. Blend: 53% Grenache, 25% Syrah, 12% Mourvèdre, 10% Counoise. WE 94 pts, RP 92 pts, WS 90 pts.
  • A dark, spicy Syrah-driven nose reminiscent of Cornas: teriyaki, black olive, eucalyptus and black plum. On the palate, meaty and juicy, with flavors of soy marinade, black raspberry, wood smoke and white pepper. The long, gently tannic finish lingers with black fruit and spice. Delicious now, but with the substance and balance to age for up to a decade. Blend: 40% Syrah, 33% Grenache, 21% Mourvedre, 3% Counoise, 3% Terret Noir. WE 92 pts, JS 92 pts, RP 91 pts, WS 90 pts.
