2014 Russian River Valley Chardonnay
90 Points! – Wine Enthusiast
Our Chardonnay vineyards scattered throughout the cool-climate pockets of the Russian River and Green Valley AVA’s shape the distinct aromas and flavors that define this wine, and make it such a great representation of its source. With aromas of crisp green apples, Asian pears, and zesty citrus notes on a plush body with a definitive minerality, this is classic Russian River Valley Chardonnay.
2015 Russian River Valley Rosé of Pinot Noir
This wine blossoms with a complex and fruit-driven bouquet featuring high tone tropical and citrus notes such as blood orange, kiwi, passion fruit and coconut, coupled with more delicate aromas of watermelon and orange crème. In a constant effort to over-deliver, our Rosé is dominated by a round front and midpalate, that is fruit-driven, but dry. It has well-balanced, refreshing acidity around the edges and a clean refined finish.
This Pinot Noir maintains the expectations of what saavy consumers have come to look forward to from the Russian River Valley. The nose has notes of bright red cranberries, bing cherries and wild raspberries, softened by a suggestion of sweet cream. French oak barrels lend support with hints of creamy vanilla and toffee. The finish lingers, inviting you for another sip.
Sonoma County’s abundance of unique micro-climates and AVA’s provides the perfect array of warm, sunny, hillside vineyards throughout the Alexander, Dry Creek, and Sonoma Valleys from which to source our classic Cabernet Sauvignon. This wine boasts aromas of ripe red cherry, fresh tobacco and spicy cola on a deep, rich palate with structured tannins and a soft, leather finish.
2013 Napa Valley Merlot
The diverse sources of our Merlot mingle seamlessly to produce mouthwatering aromas of dark cherry, blackberry, blueberry, cassis and cedar. The stout body and chewy tannins coalesce for a satisfyingly robust finish.
2013 Santa Cruz Mountains Chardonnay
92 Points! – Wine Enthusiast
A sophisticated wine with bright, tropical Key lime zest and guava, decadent golden apples, and floral honeysuckle layered with a touch of vanilla and ripe bananas. This medium-bodied Chardonnay is delicate, but certainly not shy. It has a clean palate, honed nicely by its definitive minerality. Smooth and supple on the front and mid-palate, with bright acids along the sides and finish.
