I like this wine's bold aromas and flavors of apple pudding, Meyer lemon and poached peach.

New wine releases from Scott Harvey Wines include Mountain Selection Syrah, a Red Wine Blend called Ultimo Beso, and 3 wines under the Jana Wine label: Mendocino Old Vine Riesling, Jana Rosé Napa Valley, and Jana Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc. All are now available in the Sutter Creek Tasting Room as well as on the Scott Harvey wine store at scottharveywines(dot)com.

2011 Scott Harvey Mountain Selection Syrah is made in a rich style with a long finish. Winemaker Scott Harvey described the wine, "varietal mouth filling creamy texture with big red berry and cherry fruit. Aromas of blackberry, cedar, blueberry and sweet light oak introduce fresh, bright, spicy flavors that are laced with firm tannins that carry through the long finish." The wine can be enjoyed now through 2021.

Scott Harvey is known as a Master wine blender, creator of wine blends for Folie a Deux and Santino Winery. His latest red wine blend is 2011 Ultimo Beso (spanish: 'Last Kiss'), a fruit forward, Zinfandel - Port - Barbera blend. "I made this latest red blend in a full-bodied style with mouth-watering balance. The wine is full of spicy cloves and blackberry fruit and is designed to go well with any meat or pasta dish," said Scott.

2012 Mendocino Old Vine Riesling is a new release under the Jana Wine label. "This is a well-balanced, delicate wine that is very expressive and food friendly," Scott continued. "You'll notice its golden silver color. I like this wine's bold aromas and flavors of apple pudding, Meyer lemon and poached peach. There's a tangy medium body and long, pure wintermint and crunchy fruit tannin accented finish."

Another new release under the Jana Wine label is the 2012 Jana Rosé. It features a light (low alcohol), crisp and dry style that is "inspired by the wines I produced while working as an apprentice attending wine-making school in Europe," said Scott. "This is a true European-type Rosé, well balanced, delicately structured wine with a light delicate pink color. Roses, white peach, strawberry sorbet, pink grapefruit, cranberry with just a hint of fresh carbonation on the finish."

2012 Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc is also made under the Jana Wine label. "We drink this wine all through the summer because it is crisp and refreshing," said Scott. "The notes of lime and melon offer mouth-watering acidity and a clean, balanced finish. This will pair nicely with fish and light pork and chicken dishes, and is made to enjoy now through 2015." As of June 1st, all the new release wines will be offered in the Sutter Creek Tasting Room as well as on the Scott Harvey wine store at scottharveywines(dot)com.
