 Deeply dark ruby with an alluringly inky opacity in the glass; our first-ever Moone Tsai Petite Sirah reveals itself as a beguiling siren that will compel double-takes from first glimpse to final finish. Gorgeously expressive on the nose, the wine invites immediate attention…teasing the nose with sultry suggestions of black and blue fruits, violets, and earth. The wine’s attack does not demur, taking hold with hints of ripe black plum, black cherry, kirsch, licorice, and lightly toasted oak. Fine supple tannins and a pleasing acidity complete the wine, with 42% new French oak (22 months) framing a superbly balanced, lusciously layered wine that finishes with a teasing sensuality and élan. While comparisons to remarkably memorable divas might inspire some debate, we suggest pairing this Palisades-pleaser with some recorded selections from the especially fair and fetching Grammy-Award-winning songstress, the incomparable Diana Krall.

The bright ruby red hues Corinne Cuvée’s inaugural vintage signal the arrival of Moone Tsai’s foray into pinot noir. Aromas of ripe red fruits, complemented by hints of rose petal and fresh herbs mark the wine’s alluring nose. This salutation extends on the attack, inviting inspection by way of ripe wild cherry and raspberry notes, accented by suggestions of black tea, earth and shaved graphite. Fermented in open-top stainless-steel tanks, and aged 16-months in 70% new French Oak, the wine reveals a soft layering of texture, flavors and a delicate acidity. True to its namesake, Corinne, this memorable first offering is pretty and bright, with a fetching freshness, and vitality that will enhance any occasion with delightful anticipation.

While the whimsy of Mother Nature was on full display during the 2017 growing season, the hallmarks of brilliant fruit borne by the remarkable Ritchie Vineyard in the storied Russian River Valley glisten gloriously in the glass. Hints of floral aromas combine with a subtle grassiness and citrus notes to announce the wine’s arrival. Beyond this olfactory greeting, the wine further entices with suggestions of white nectarine, lilikoi, toast, and lemon zest. Barrel-fermented and aged 16-months in 37% new French Oak, the wine is delicately oaked, and further reveals a soft layering of texture and flavors, enhanced by a pleasing acidity and subtle richness. Showing an alluring depth and nuanced complexity at this delightful stage of gilded youthfulness, this charming chardonnay brings to mind our older daughter, Paige, for whom this most remarkable wine is named.
