A Quick Up Date for Red Mountain Wineries

Beautiful Views this afternoon from Red Mountain.  It is obvious why they call it Red Mt. this time of the year!  

Views from Hamilton Cellars

Hamilton Cellars Tasting Notes

2015 Ciel Du Cheval Viogner:  If you are a white wine drinker this Viognier blend will make you smile. Lovely pear and spice notes with a very smooth mouth due to 9 months + in small French Oak. 

2010 Merlot CV: Smooth toasted cherry vanilla characteristics 100% Merlot. 

2011 Malbec CV: Lovely dark garnet red color with some big black fruit and vanilla aromas with a hint of black pepper on the finish.  A real smooth intro on the palate.

Cooper Tasting Notes

2015 Barrel Maker White: This is another great white with Viognier on the top end of the blend of Chardonnay and Riesling. The scent is honeysuckle from the get go with a big taste of grapefruit through to the finish.

2014 Estate Merlot: This is another winning Merlot from Red Mt. Could it be I am turning into a Merlot fan?  I guess I am when they are from Red Mt. This one made me smile real big. A big bold wow with a great chewy mouth feel. Lots of fruit  on this lovely glass of red wine.

2014 Estate Cab Franc: Gorgeous big dried fruit taste.

2014 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon: Big cab with big flavor! Bing Cherry vanilla coke. That's what I am talking about for a Red Mt. cab  :)
