WS 92

Creamy and supple-textured, with complex notes of clay, black tea and star anise, accented by plum compote, tobacco and sage details. Comes together in harmony on the long, lingering finish, where a touch of tomato leaf lingers. Drink now through 2030.

The 2013 Chardonnay has pretty white blossom notes – orange and peach blossoms – over a core of grapefruit, white peaches and baking bread with a hint of marzipan. Medium bodied and still very tight in the mouth, it has great tension lifting the citrus and stone fruit flavors, finishing long and creamy.

WS 94

Aromatic and very spicy, with clove, cinnamon and nutmeg details that lend plenty of intrigue to the core of fleshy plum and blackberry flavors. Fresh and vibrant, but with some brooding earth and forest floor notes that gain momentum on the velvety finish. Drink now through 2030.

Medium garnet-purple-colored, the 100% Syrah 2011 Le Sol opens with warm blackberry, kirsch and mulberry aromas fused with hints of spice box, violets and chocolate, plus a whiff of pepper. Medium-bodied and offering great finesse and poise in the mouth, it has a medium level of rounded tannins, lively yet well-balanced acidity and finishes with great length. Drink it now to 2020+.

Medium to deep ruby-purple, the 2013 Block 3 Pinot Noir offers a herbal laced nose with notes of Provence herbs and dried lavender over a core of mulberries and warm red currants plus touches of roses, cloves and cedar. Firm and structured in the mouth with layers of currant and mulberry laced flavors supported by chewy tannins, it finishes with great length.
