Stonehedge Reserve Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2009 75cl

Stonehedge is a small family winery in Napa producing some excellent hand crefted wines.

Don Baker's (winemaker) notes

"The Stonehedge Reserve Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is produced from grapes grown in Napa Valley. Napa valley is considered to be the very best place in the United States to grow Cabernet Sauvignon.

The rich volcanic soils along with excellent growing season of 2009 produced the marvelous grapes that went into the making of this wine.

The wine was made using the traditional small tank fermentation and barrel ageing. The result is a wine brimming with rich flavors of cassis and black currants with subdued swirls of mocha berry and vanilla. Bold yet elegantly smooth and well balanced, this wine is ready to be enjoyed now or reward the patient collector."

Again I loved it. Good Napa Cab Sauv is normally very expensive, so this is great value.

Stonehedge Reserve Napa Valley Merlot 2005 75cl

Stonehedge is a small family winery in Napa producing some excellent hand crefted wines.

Don Baker's (winemaker) notes

"The 2005 Stonehedge Napa Valley Merlot is produced exclusively from mountian top hillsides of Napa Valley. Grown in desolate rocky soil in high altitudes, the vines are naturally stressed into yielding a very limited amount of grapes with intense flavor concentration. Elegant and smooth, yet boldly packed with layer upon layer of ripe cherry berry plummy flavors and a finish that never quits. Built to last. This wine can be enjoyed now or develop further complexities by addional cellaring."

I loved it. Big and juicy, give it some time to open up!

Avoid this wine if you have a sulphite allergy - not that a great deal has been added, but because the wine is so pure there is little for the free sulphur to interact with so it has remained free despite the bottle age.

"Vigorous Sangiovese vines thrive in our Home Ranch vineyard. Hot days and cool nights ripen the fruit to perfection and yield a wine that is medium bodied with rich fruit and gentle tannins. Pair with minestrone soup, tomato gratin, or chocolate desserts."

Due to their unique composition (packed with natural anti oxidants), all these Frey reds benefit enormously from time to breathe. If you plan to drink the whole bottle in one sitting it's a good idea to decant them and leave for an hour, so they can really aerate. They become much smoother and the different flavours and qualities mellow into each other. If you're only having just a glass or two, try to aerate as best you can - perhaps pour out a glass and leave for an hour before drinking (if that's possible!). On first opening they are tight so aerating makes a huge difference to your drinking experience.

Frey Biodynamic The Field Blend 2015 Sulphite free natural wine

"At the pristine headwaters of the Russian River in Mendocino County lies a Tolkien-inspired land of wild beauty. Deep in the heart of the Frey Ranch, our Biodynamic vineyards are visited by woodpeckers, bobcats and the occasional black bear. As stewards of the land, we encourage biodiversity to nourish our grapevines: we cultivate organic wheat between rows, pasture sheep, goats and chickens in the vineyard, and nurture native plants to attract beneficial insects. Our wines are made in a harmonious rhythm with the planet – no pesticides or preservatives, ever!

Our Biodynamic Field Blend is graced with a subtle nose of red currant, a hint of star anise, iron, and rose hips. Seamlessly blended to reflect our specific terroir, enjoy a rustic mix of rich berry and hearty tannins that form a voluptuous pairing for savory, seasonal fare."

The Field Blend label was designed by Nicole Paisley Martensen. It incorporates a collage of vintage astrological charts and farmers’ almanacs, evoking the origins of Biodynamic farming and its founder, Rudolf Steiner, along with photographs of grapevines and tractor treads at Frey Vineyards. The label also features some of the animals that have a prominent place in our Biodynamic farming methods; goats, sheep, and even acorn woodpeckers are part of the natural cycle in the vineyard. The inspiration both inside and outside the bottle is to convey a true spirit of place, and mirror the richness and beauty of our land."
