Our Talawind Ranch Sauvignon Blanc opens with mouthwatering aromas of ripe melon, pink grapefruit, savory green herb and mineral notes and continue as flavors in the bright, zesty mouth. The finish is long and delicious
Aged in stainless steel, the 2017 Talawind Ranch Sauvignon Blanc is pale yellow in color. Filled with aromas of tropical fruits, such as guava, papaya, and ripe melon, the green herbal notes so often associated with Sauvignon Blanc are background accompaniments. These flavors marry into the fruit flavors and contribute to a long, lingering finish.
The Leras Chardonnay aromas lure the taster in with an attractive combination of both vanilla and apples, and evolve into flavors of tropical fruit (pineapple, mango) baked apples, Crème Brulee, citrus and baking spices. The mouthfeel in this classic Chardonnay is perfectly balanced, round and luscious, with a long, juicy finish.
A beautiful marriage of fruit and spice aromas first greet the nose. Initially both red and black cherries soon give way to the riper fruits of plum and boysenberry. A medium weighted wine, it is showcased by a very silkiness that is apparent on the entry and lasts until the final sip. The spice components seem to come from both the use of new French Oak and also from the mixture of several grape clones that are used for this wine. Mace and cardamom come to mind to give that interesting spicy nuance to the wine.
The Talawind Ranch 2015 Pinot Noir offers beautiful aromas of cola, spices, and rose petals on the nose. These segue into the fruit flavors of cherries and red berries on the palate. This medium weight wine allows the elegance of the Pinot Noir to be complemented by the French oak barrels, in which it was aged, rather than being overpowered by it.
