This vintage of Viognier has a nice oak complexity from aging in new French oak for five months. As an exciting alternative to many mainstream white wines, it is no surprise that today Viognier is being touted as the varietal to watch (and taste).
  South Coast Winery Zinfandel
Harvested from the Victoria Block of Lopez Ranch, this vineyard and the wines it produces are very consistent and luscious. The 2003 is rich in strawberry, blackberry and cherry aromas, with hints of prune and plum. The American oak has wrapped itself around the fruit character with soft smokey note and given a very solid structure for tannins to build upon. Dark chocolate and caramel covered cherries, plum jam, a touch of bay leaf and black pepper are all flavors that come forth in this complex wine. The 2003 Zinfandel has the potential for aging is over the next five to six years. A nice steak, like a New York Strip, would be the perfect way to reunite the east coast with this long since west coast transplant.

  Wild Horse Peak Mountain Vineyard Sangiovese
Where horse thieves and renegades once sough trefuge, vines now flourish in the rolling mountain vineyards of Wild Horse Peak. The overwhelming red clay soil, granitic outcroppings, and steep terrain coupled with outstanding climatic conditions define the ultimate winegrowing conditions of Southern California. The character of the South Coast Winery 2004 vintage of Sangiovese is reflective of its Italian origins as a varietal. This Sangiovese is a deep pyrope garnet color, with hints of fennel and candied cherry fruit in the aroma. The body is round, and the tight laced tannins meld with the crisp acid structure. This wine was aged for seventeen months in a combination of French, Russian and Hungarian oak, which gives the luscious fruit character a balance of sandalwood and smokey vanilla spice that begs a second sip. This is a Sangiovese that will work well with anything off the grill--salmon, pork, chicken and beef.
