Review:

"This is a refreshing counterpoint to this winery's richer reds. Quite light in the glass, persistent aromas of lime, makrut lime leaf, lemongrass and a hint of guava show on the nose, which also offers a rainy cement minerality. The grippy sip frames ripe but fresh flavors of stone fruit and passionfruit. - MATT KETTMANN"

Winery: MCV Wines

MCV Wines opened its doors in 2011 with the purchase of four and a half tons of some of the highest quality Petite Sirah to be found in the Paso Robles AVA. Matt Villard eagerly jumped on the opportunity for these grapes and swiftly discovered an incredible wine making facility where he could in turn create his wines. Before harvest was over he found three more tons of Petite Sirah as well as some Grenache and Syrah totalling around 10 tons for 2011. Matt Villard is happy to say that they are still happily working with both the same original Petite Sirah vineyard and wine making facility.

Here at MCV, they focus on unique and interesting blends that revolve around Petite Sirah. This wonderfully dark and rich grape is smooth, elegant and delicious yet, bold, powerful and age-able. It has the unique ability to be made in various styles that can be used to create multiple wines from the same grapes. Their first two production years yielded around 500 cases each vintage. However, 2013 saw a small increase due to incorporating new grape varietals into the program and a couple new blends.

Gimenez Mendez Alta Reserva Sauvignon Blanc 2020

Gimenez Mendez Alta Reserva Sauvignon Blanc is made from 100 percent Sauvignon Blanc. 

Gimenez Mendez Sauvignon Blanc shows a very pale hue, almost crystal clear in color. Intense and herbal bouquet in harmony with fruity notes of guava and green apple, mango and maracuja. The wine is full and ample on the palate with a very firm structure. Dry, crisp and lively in the mouth.

Sauvignon blanc grapes are hand harvested very early during some mornings of February. Banches are destemmed and delicately crushed. With a quick press, fresh and very aromatic juice are obtained. Juice is fermented in stainless steel tanks during 15 days at controlled low temperatures, between 14 to 16 °C .Once fermentation is finished lees are kept and stirred for 1 month to get a creamy texture. Then a carefully clarification is necessary. The wine is filtered and stabilized without cold, and finally bottled to keep the freshness. No oak.

Ideal to serve with very spicy seafood, sushi or salads, as well as white meats with sweet-sour sauces, paté. Serve chilled.


Review:

An un-oaked white that shines with green herbs, grapefruit zest, pea tendrils and superb acidity. It shows exotic floral notes with a steely middle. A pop of nectarine on the finish adds to its crystal clean clarity.

La Motte Sauvignon Blanc 2020

La Motte Sauvignon Blanc is made from 100% Sauvignon Blanc.

This wine was made from grapes originating from vineyards in several areas of the Cape Winelands — Franschhoek (25%), Stellenbosch (50%) and the Cape South Coast (25%).

Light straw in color with hint of green. Lots of fresh winter melon and gooseberry with distinctive lime aromas very typical to La Motte Sauvignon Blanc. Silky and soft on the pallet with a fruity green apple aftertaste. Lower acidity than the average year but well in balance with a lower residual sugar.

With its natural acidity and acute texture, the La Motte Sauvignon Blanc pairs beautifully with seafood, light pastas and spicy Chinese and Thai dishes. This white wine also goes extremely well with acute seasonings, and salty eats such as pre-dinner canapés. A natural partner to goat’s cheese. On its own, a refreshing aperitif white wine.

Long Shadows Cymbal Sauvignon Blanc 2020

Long Shadows Cymbal Sauvignon Blanc  is made from 100% Sauvignon Blanc.

Tasting notes: Wonderfully vibrant and aromatic, with notes of lemongrass, passion fruit and a hint of honeysuckle. Flavors of mango, fresh herbs and white peach, come together seamlessly across a textured palate and lengthy finish.

Over the years, Gilles and Allen have experimented with small quantities of uniquely styled wines for their personal and family enjoyment. A few of these wines became too good not to share with their “extended family”, including the Cymbal Sauvignon Blanc.

Sauvignon Blanc from three distinct vineyards combined to give this wine its wonderful vibrancy and complex flavor profile. Gamache Vineyard (planted in 1985) is located on a gently sloping hillside in close proximity to the Columbia River. The site benefits from the cooling effect of the river to give the wine fresh acidity. Boushey Vineyard also contributes liveliness and lemongrass character. Bacchus Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc (planted in 1972) is a warmer site, producing a riper style wine that provides a distinct passion fruit character to the

finished blend.



Review:

"A lovely white, delicate yet vibrant, with an array of lemongrass, lime and stony mineral flavors that finish on a vivid note. Drink now. 816 cases made. - TF"

Post & Beam Napa Cabernet Sauvignon 2020

Far Niente Post & Beam Napa Cabernet Sauvignon is made from 100 percent Napa Cabernet Sauvignon. 

Pure, fresh plum, violet, and sage aromas lead to a round palate layered with ripe plum, dark berry, and blackcurrant flavors. Leather, cedar, and dried herb accents, along with whispers of vanilla and oak provide depth, while lithe acidity keeps the wine lifted, balanced, and bright. Supple tannins feel like suede-velvet and carry the elegant fruit and spice flavors into a finish that goes on and on. This debut vintage is pure finesse.
