Tasting Notes

Indie Winemakers' Tasting Notes

Our mission is to provide unbiased opinions of the wine being offered. These notes come from up to 10 guests who tasted this wine in a blind tasting format (wine is concealed so their identity is unknown). Why this format? Tasting blind completely throws out any hype associated with a certain winery, style, price point, etc; it forces the taster to accept what is in the glass without any predetermined notions. Our guests utilize Robert Parker's Glossary of Wine Terms for their comments for consistency purposes. In addition, we utilize the wine aroma wheel to enhance one’s ability to describe the complexity of wine flavor. Notes are posted on this wine during the tasting to ensure they accurately reflect the impressions.

  • BH: Definitely a food friendly wine. Focused fruit flavor and medium finish.
  • RLA: I got lots of berries aroma from the wine. Loved the long finish and the silky texture in the mouth.
  • JH: Very smooth, coats your mouth. Nose of dark berries followed through to the finish. Nice bit of oak/vanilla on the finish.
  • FF: Wonderful intensity of fruit and oak. Medium body with a lingering finish.
  • MA: Smoooth! Can’t express enough how this wine rolled-around the tongue. Nice wild berry flavor and a good long finish that never loses it tannin-acid balance

Winemaker Steve Glossner's Tasting Notes

This wine exhibits a beautiful, golden hue. On the nose are expressions of white peach, beeswax and sweet vanilla bean. The palate is full and viscous giving the impression of sweetness, while remaining bone dry.
