2014 Sheridan Vineyard Chardonnay “La Belle Blonde”
On Sale $24.99
The rich, unctuously textured 2014 La Belle Blonde Chardonnay gives up tons of caramelized orchard fruits, sweet oak, toasted bread and white flowers in a full-bodied, concentrated, beautifully layered style. There’s some serious heft here, but it says balanced, fresh and thoroughly drinkable. It should keep nicely for 3-4 years, possibly longer.

2015 Sheridan Vineyard “Crossfork Creek” Cabernet Sauvignon
On Sale $17.99
The Crossfork Creek Cabernet Sauvignon is an estate-grown Cabernet Sauvignon, aged for 20 months in seasoned French and American Oak barrels. The color is a rich and vibrant purple. The nose opens with rich dark fruits of blackberries, plums, and cassis. At first taste, you are struck by the rich texture that is accompanied by lush black fruits, spice, and anise, leading into a long finish that showcases the elegance yet power of a great Cabernet. This wine will age beautifully for 15+ years.
Winemaker’s Notes

2015 Sheridan Vineyard Proprietary Red Wine “Mystique”
On Sale $24.99
Deep garnet core.  Opens with Chinese five spice, blackberry liqueur, violet and lavender.  Soft and creamy upfront with lush black and blue fruits.  Spicy, muscular tannins and vibrant acidity show long term age worthiness.  Finishes supple and lithe with maple syrup, ginger spice and soy sauce.  Best cellared for a few years or decanted overnight.  Should see 2030 with ease.

2014 Sheridan Vineyard Estate Cabernet Sauvignon
On Sale $24.99
Made from 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc, the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon comes all from estate fruit and spent 17 months in once used French oak. It offers a slightly darker profile than the Mystique cuvee and gives up lots of ripe black fruits, graphite, smoked earth, chocolate and bouquet garni aromas and flavors. Medium to full-bodied, deep ruby/purple colored, rich, concentrated and with sweet tannin, it’s another fabulous value from Scott that will stand toe to toe with Bordeaux releases at two to three times the price. Drink it over the coming decade.

2014 Sheridan Vineyard Estate Cabernet Franc “Boss Block”
On Sale $44.99
The 2014 Boss Block is 100% Cabernet Franc and has a medium garnet hue and opens with enticing floral notes of violet and Asian spice with hints of black plum and earl grey tea. Fine grip, juicy acidity and integrated tannins lead the palate with sweet blackberry, cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves. Finishes supple and layered with a tantalizing mouthfeel and amazing length. Best enjoyed after 2016 or decant 1 hour prior to enjoying.

2015 Sheridan Vineyard Proprietary Red Wine “L’Orage”
On Sale $49.99
Dark garnet to the rim. Stunning floral notes of spring lilac and lavender flower lead to comforting aromas of Tollhouse cookies, fresh strawberry jam and toasted coconut in the nose.  Smooth and luxurious in the mouth, showing red twizzlers, black raspberry brandy and crème de cassis.  Finely integrated tannins balance the intense fruit and freshness on the palate.  An unctuous, lively and focused wine showing a seamless core of lush black fruit, tangy acidity and a silky-smooth mouthfeel.  Easily one of the best wines of the vintage and a straightforward pleasure to drink.  Drink now through 2030.
