Love Notes and High Praise

Light rose petal rimmed with teaberry in colour. The aromas fill the glass with potpourri , ripe cherry and earth. The palate is breathtaking, offering melted candied apple, salted cherry, earth, sweet tobacco leaf and warm strawberry spice. Finishes like a orchestra building to the climactic finish, with all flavors coming together in perfect harmony. A wine I believe is in its perfect drinking years, and one that will be remembered. This is what represents Umami to me. Drink now through 2023

Meet the Winemaker

Cecilia Enriquez

Winemaker/Owner

Enriquez Estate Wines

Cecilia grew up in New Jersey, without any background in wine. But when Cecilia and her family visited California in 2009, she immediately fell in love with wine country. Upon losing her job at Wells Fargo during the recession, she decided to throw caution to the wind and move to California to start a wine brand in her family's name. Attaching herself to anyone who would teach her, she quickly learned the craft and began winning awards for her wines. Now on her 11th vintage as winemaker, Cecilia has honed her skills and begun experimenting with varietals not usually found in the Russian River area and winemaking practices not usually implemented in the United States. She is all about pushing the envelope and feels that her unique entry into winemaking empowers her to think outside the box.
