Steve and I each chose a different tasting so we could get the full experience. I chose the Standard Tasting and Steve chose the Premium Tasting.
My Standard Tasting started with the 2016 Estate Viognier which wound up being my favorite. It is a great California Summer wine with aromas of exotic fruits, white peach, and a brilliant floral nose. This was followed with the 2016 Estate Riesling, an off the menu Chardonnay, Briar Rose White Mission and finished up with the 2015 Estate Barbera.
Steve's Premium Tasting included the 2015 Estate Tempranillo, 2005 Estate Zinfandel, 2015 Estate Syrah, Briar Rose's Red Mission, 2013 Estate Barbera, and 2014 Oliver Collection Cabernet Sauvignon. As always Steve's favorite was the Cabernet.
We really enjoyed the overall experience at Briar Rose Winery. The wine, service, and surroundings was such a lovely way to spend our tasting time. We look forward to our next visit.
