Ultimate Wine Challenge Scores

We entered five our our wines into the Ultimate Wine Challenge, and here are the results!

Le Vigne Paso Robles 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon (14.5% abv)92

92 Points (Excellent, Highly Recommended)

Tasting notes (from Ultimate Wine Challenge judges): A delicious and complex nose of roasted pepper, dark plum, and bright cranberry fruit flows freely from the dark ruby colored wine. The flavors when tasted flow from fresh fruit to toasted brioche and sit on a lovely bed of fine tannins

Le Vigne Paso Robles 2013 Merlot (13.9% abv)86

86 Points (Very Good, Strong Recommendation)

Tasting notes: Aromas of blueberry jam, coffee beans, and leather mingle together nicely on the nose. Rich, ripe black cherries, anise, and blackberries are also woven with richer chocolate and earth notes on the palate. Complex and full-bodied with a lingering finish.

Le Vigne Paso Robles 2014 Chardonnay (14.4% abv)88

88 points (very good, strong recommendation)

Tasting notes: True to its variety with lush aromas of pineapple, kiwi, mango, and a touch of white cherry. Oak comes forth on the palate, balanced by fresh tropical fruit and a lovely hint of fresh butter. Long, silky, and tropical on the finish.

Kiara Bella Red Wine (14.5% abv)87

87 points (Very Good, Strong Recommendation)

Tasting notes: Blackberry pie filling and blueberry preserves are pungent aromatics. Dark roasted chocolate and tomato leaf add earthy complexity to the spicy fruit on the full palate. The roasted and tangy flavors continue long after each sip.

Kiara Bella White Wine (14.3% abv)87

87 points (Very Good, Strong Recommendation)

Tasting notes: There’s a deep nose of honeysuckle, herbaceousness, and a hint of musk. Vibrant acidity brightens the palate with hints of tropical fruit, quince, and ripe pear. A medium bodied wine with a refreshing salinity at the finish.
