FINDLETON ESTATE WINERY

    January Wine Club Release

FINDLETON ESTATE WINERY -  JANUARY 2017 WINE CLUB:

2014 Viognier  $29.00 (retail)

Our 2014 Viognier from Honeychurch Vineyards in Amador County is a soft golden color with a mixed flower bouquet and golden pineapple, subtle honey, and melon on the palette.  Wine maker, Tom Findleton, used New French Oak staves during fermentation to create structure and soft tannins.  The wine spent a short rotation in 25% New French Oak and then went into neutral oak barrels for the rest of aging.  This creamy, full Viognier is a great accompaniment to spicy ethnic foods like Indian, Thai, Sushi and Cajun Gumbo.

2013 Estate Grown Pinot noir  $39.00 (retail)

Happy New Year!  Our 2013 Pinot noir from Kevin's Vineyard was pressed off the skins early for a light and delicate taste.  It is ligh bodied with a light ruby color, and has a bouquet of cherry, vanilla, and peated heather.  Aged in 25% New French Oak for 14 months it shows undertones of rhubarb, wild strawberry, nutmeg and toasted campfire marshmallow.  Pinot noir is a wonderful wine to pair with holiday favorites like Smoked Ham.

2013 Cabernet Franc  $26.00  (retail)

Our Cabernet Franc, from Geisler & Baron Vineyards, was aged in 30% New French Oak for 23 months.  Dark in color and full in body, it reveals a complex bouquet of cherries, oak, vanilla and an intriquing hint of green pepper. Rich, balanced and smooth, it exhibits flavors of dark fruit and cherries.  Gentle tannin rounds of the mouth feel and lingering dark fruit notes and pepper leave you longing for more.

2013 Raven Red Reserve Syrah $26.00 (retail)

From Williamson & Marchini Vineyards, our Syrah was aged in 30% New French Oak for 23 months.  It has a deep garnet color with beautiful clarity.  On the nose you will find ripe berry, vanilla, dusty rose and wood.  On the palette, boysenberry, briar, creamy vanilla and firm smoky tannin create a velvety smooth, full bodied wine that is rich and rounded.  Like the Raven on the label,seeking refuge in the vineyard, you too will want this wine to comfort you through the cold winter.
