Indian Wells, Chateau St. Michelle

Columbia Valley, Washington, 2006

This is a ripe, tropical style of Riesling, which comes

from the warm Wahluke Slope region of eastern Washington.

The 2006 Indian Wells Riesling exhibits fruit-driven aromas

of juicy pineapple and mango. The wine is rich and unctuous,

while maintaining a fresh, elegant style that is typical of

Washington state Riesling.

Appellation Series: North Coast

Rosenblum Winery

California, 2005

78% Zinfandel, 15% Carignane, 7% Petite Sirah

This wine has been crafted by blending the fruit from four premium vineyards all located in Sonoma and Mendocino counties. Featuring a mix of old vines and meticulously cared for vineyards, this appellation produces exotic, jammy, fruit-driven Zinfandels.

This is a very dark, rich and fruit-driven wine that reflects the structure and character of the cool climate vineyards used to craft this distinctive North Coast blend. The wine shows flavors of blackberry, currant, ripe raspberry spice and elements of vanilla and mint.
