“The 2013 Petite Sirah Estates, also from Betsy’s Vineyard, is more opaque bluish/purple than the Syrah. The nose shows graphite, blueberry, black raspberry and the essence of dark, dark fruits. Full, rich and layered, with surprisingly smooth, velvety tannins, this is a gorgeous wine to drink over the next 25-30 years. This is my first look at these wines of Lawer, and I was very impressed.”

“The two reds I tasted include the 2013 Syrah Estates from Betsy’s Vineyard. This is a seriously dense, opaque bluish/purple color, looking like a Chapoutier single-vineyard Hermitage. The blueberry notes continue on the aromatics, with blackberry, white flowers and a hint of crushed rock. This is an impressive Syrah, rich, full-bodied and super-extracted, but with velvety tannins. This stunner should age nicely for up to a decade or more.”

“This is a pretty wine, resplendent in jasmine and honeysuckle, with a light-bodied, integrated approach to highlighting fresh layers of apricot and peach. The viscosity is just right, focused and restrained, while the finish puts an exclamation point to the freshness of fruit.”

“One of the more attractive Viogniers I have tasted recently from California, the 2014 Viognier Estates from Lawer shows surprising wet-stone minerality, nice white peach and apricot fruit, good crisp acids, medium body and excellent concentration.”

“This lively white is floral in honeysuckle aromas, while creamy, rounded layers of apricot play on the full-bodied palate. A spicy nutmeg chaser closes things out. Well balanced and accessible, this is ready to drink now.”

“The 2014 Chardonnay Estates has a light-straw color with a barely perceptible greenish hue. It is a classic, French-style Chardonnay, with notes of discrete orange marmalade, honeysuckle, white peach, good acidity, little evidence of oak, and a long finish. This is a beauty to drink over the next 5-6 years.”

“Made from 75% Chardonnay and 25% Viognier, Una is thick in caramel and vanilla tones throughout. It conveys a distinct taste and aroma of burnt sugar, like pecans roasting over an open fire. Complex, it works as a well-adjusted, finely made sweet wine, ready to be paired with fruity desserts.”
