The 2014 Chardonnay No. 81 is scented of ripe apples and peaches with hints of cedar, baking bread, marzipan and ginger. Medium to full-bodied and silken textured, it offers a great concentration of clean, ripe stone fruit flavors with some savory characters coming thorough on the long finish.

Pale to medium ruby-purple in color, the 2014 Pinot Noir No. 7 has an earthy nose of moss-covered bark, damp loam and underbrush over a delicate core of cranberries and raspberry leaves. Medium-bodied, the palate offers just enough red-fruit freshness to counter the earthy flavors, with a seamless backbone of fine-grained tannins and refreshing acidity, finishing with excellent length.

Pale ruby colored with a hint of purple, the 2014 Pinot Noir No. 22 offers a gorgeous perfume of red roses and violets over a core of wild strawberries, raspberries and Provence herbs with a touch of underbrush. The medium-bodied palate delivers a wonderful intensity of perfumed red berry flavors framed by very fine tannins and plenty of freshness, finishing with great depth and persistence.

Medium ruby purple in color, the 2014 Zinfandel Arpad's Selection is scented of dried mulberries, prunes, blackberry preserves and fruitcake with a waft of dusty earth. Big, beautiful and full-bodied, it offers tons of dried berry and spice box flavors with a good amount of velvety tannins and lively acid to support, finishing with excellent persistence.

Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Private Reserve is scented of black currents, black plums, blueberries and cedar with a hint of sandalwood. Full-bodied in the mouth, it delivers tons of muscular fruit with a firm backbone of grainy tannins and good length. Still very youthful, it needs another 4 to 6 years to enter its drinking window.
