Bianchi & Two Angels
The 2006 Malbec is a purpleish red colored wine with intense plum, cherries and red berry aromas. The flavors mimic the aromas. The finish is long and silky. The 2006 Petite Sirah from Two Angels is "dark as night" and boasts aromas of dark berry, violets and pomegranate. There is an abundance of fruit flavors that are integrated with toasted oak and roasted coffee undertones.
In addition, we tasted Mr. Pepi's personal label, The Eponymous Cabernet 2004 and the 2003 Red Wine MacAllister Vineyard. The 2004 Cabernet is a full-bodied Cabernet that is rich, full and round from the initial taste that leads to a long, lingering finish. There nose starts off with plum and violets along with some currants. These aromas follow through on the palate along with some coffee and nutmeg.
The 2003 Red Wine MacAllister Vineyard is a scarlet colored wine from the Mayacamas Range near Sonoma and has a complex aroma of cassis, spicy oak and raspberries. The aromas follow through on the palate along with a hint of chocolate and rhubarb.
I highly recommend you tracking down wines from all of these wineries, or contact Quintessential Wines.
