Stellar - full bodied. — 3 months ago
We loved this 2014 red blend. With beautiful nose, lovely spicy black fruit. Unctuous mouthfeel and deep rich flavors on the finish. Great balance. No strong tannins or sharp acid. Ink red black. Not sure of blend but I’d guess Cab, Merlot, Petit Verdot. And maybe cab franc. — 10 months ago
A hint of licorice, berry in mid palate. Pairing with non-meat lasagne. — 5 years ago
Lovely story here at Reverie II. Grant Long, winemaker for Aonair, Blue Oak, Jack, and others, purchased the original Reverie label/brand from Diamond mountain after the owner sold the property. All current grapes and barrels were theirs and they moved their estate on the other side of 29, just down the road from Hunnicutt and re-branded as Reverie II. BEAUTIFUL new spot! Views are amazing. Part of the Aonair team left to now run this, so we knew before we showed up that it would be a great time.
Reverie II focuses on some unique wines...their white is a Marsanne Rousanne, and their reds are Tempranillo, barbera, Cab Franc, Cab Sauv and a special Reserve Cab Sauv. While all were enjoyable, this barbera was incredible. Totally blown away. Pinot-esque with the cherry and cedar notes, but the finish had the smallest hint of blackberries and blueberries. Acidic and wonderfully balanced. A must stop visit, if for the views only! — 6 years ago

May 28, 2020. We were welcomed at the winery with a glass of this in late February. It is SO GOOD. Brought a bottle home and have subsequently purchased more to support Aonair during the pandemic shutdown. A beautiful Blanc de Noir, light salmon color and so smooth. Very easy to drink. Lovely alone or with food. Nice with Italian flourless chocolate cake, too. I’d drink it any time. — 4 years ago
