2019 Happy Canyon Vineyard Piocho Sauvignon Blanc
Wally's Price: $25
A bit shy on the nose at first, this bottling, which includes 15% Sémillon, opens up to show aromas of pomelo pith, wet stone and a light pear flesh. The texture is light but engaging on the palate, where apple, rounded kiwi and tighter lemon-pith flavors converge. - Producer Notes

2017 Happy Canyon Piocho Red
Wally's Price: $30
Aromatically, the wine is uplifting, with notes of plum, ceder, bing cherry, berry pie and hints of earth and red clay. On the palate the wine is fruitful, exuberant, with red plum and blackberry. The wine continues with fine-grain tannins, saddle leather and wonderful savory notes. The finish is long and satisfying with lingering dusty tannins and expressive resolved fruit. The wine is wonderful to drink today and will continue to evolve in balance, length and complexity as the more structured Cabernet Sauvignon matures. This wine will continue to develop and excel over the next ten years. - Producer Notes
2016 Happy Canyon Barrack Ten Goal Cabernet Sauvignon
Wally's Price: $95
The finished wine has dark intense black / red velvet color with hues of magenta. The aromas open with lush black fruits, brioche toast, plums, and cranberries that jump out of the glass. On the palate, the wine has intensely structured tannins, superlatively balanced with dark fruit and steady acidity. The wine displays stunning and persistent length with savory fruit, a lush mouthfeel, and complex fruit that evolve and develop as the wine opens in the glass. The wine is blended with perfect amounts of Merlot, for mid-palate softness, Cabernet Franc adding a spicy lift, Malbec adding an earthy full rich flavor and Petit Verdot, with its intense color and powerful tannins seamlessly intertwining them all. Pairs well with big fatty grilled meats. - Producer Notes
