Aaron Wines is another of those local wineries that we have not visited but have had a wine or two of theirs through friends. We decided to go in and see our friend T (Tajin) and take a trip through the tasting menu. The tasting room is in Tin City next to Benom Wines, Desparada, and Wine Shine. Not a bad little cluster of adult beverage makers.
There are two labels to taste, Aequorea and Aaron. Side note on these, the label for Aequorea is beautiful. See photos below.
What we tasted:
2017 Pinot Gris (Spanish Springs Vineyard) $38.00
2016 Pinot Noir (Seafarer) $40.00
2016 Pinot Noir (Derby West Vineyard) $48.00
2015 Sand & Stone (52% Grenache 39% Petite Sirah 9% Syrah) $48.00
2015 Petite Sirah $48.00
2014 Citizen (53% Petite Sirah 47% Syrah) $48.00
Not on the menu:
2015 Trespasser (41% Petite Sirah 30% Mourvedre 24% Syrah 5% Grenache)
I’m not going to lie (because what’s the point?), I really enjoyed this tasting. The wines are beautiful. On this visit we grabbed the Aequorea Pinot Gris and the Aequorea Pinot Noir (Seafarer)…but we will be back to grab more at some point.
A big thank you to our buddy, T, for taking care of us and giving us the lowdown on Aaron Wines. We had a great time!
