Hailing from the Sonoma Coast, where daily temperature shifts result in intense but well-balanced wines, our Chardonnay was barrel fermented with native yeast resulting in a plush mouthfeel and crisp acidtiy. Flavors of crème brulee and vanilla bean lead to bright flavors of lemon citrus with a long, clean finish.
Our 2016 Alexander Valley Chardonnay opens with sumptuous aromas of Asian pear and citrus zest with a touch of vanilla. Upon the palate, flavors of gala apple, melon and honey figs are accented with a touch of caramel vanilla. Rich and spreading, well-balanced acidity leads to a crisp, elegant finish.
Blended in the hot sun of the Alexander valley, vibrant strawberry, dark cherry, back berry jam. Hint of dark chocolate and toasted oak. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Malbec & Petite Verdot make up this rich red blend.
This Merlot has a complex aromatic palate with notes of green olives and dried tobacco leaves and a touch of tea leaf. There is an inherent dustiness intermingled with notes of cedar and chocolate. This wine is medium-full bodied with pleasantly chewy tannins. Flavors of dried herbs, cedar and dusty nuances mix with olives and dried black cherries bringing a lot of nuance and depth.
Deep violet in the glass, the 2014 Cab/Shiraz blend offers aromas of black fig, black cherry and blueberry with notes of vanilla bean. Enveloping flavors of wild brambleberry and black currant mingle with hints of licorice and toasted caramel on the finish. Coating upon the palate, the rich mouthfeel is balanced with bright acidity and good structure leading to an insatiably long finish. Multi-layered with strong tannins, this wine will age well over the next 7 to 8 years.
Grenache, like many of the Rhone varieties, can express itself in many ways. Our 2014 Russian River Grenache is a beautiful crimson, with aromatics of rose petal and a warm brick character and an explosion of cranberry and crushed strawberries on the palate. It offers a fleshy, full mouthfeel that lingers through to your next sip.
The 2013 Vintage Select Cabernet Sauvignon displays wonderful attributes that are stylish, polished and pure in aroma and flavor. Enticing aromas of ripe currant, blackberry puree, cassis, juicy black plum, tar, smoked cherries and chocolate covered berries leap out of the glass and assault the senses. The aroma rewards with more oxygen and patience as new layers of complexity continually present themselves. The flavors run rich and deep and display Cabernet Sauvignon at its ripest and most opulent. Flavors of cassis, dark-rich berries, plum sauce and currant jam echo the aroma, and present a stylish wine that graces the palate. The mouth is concentrated but not heavy or tannic, allowing the flavors to glide through the mouth effortlessly.
Immediately present in this wine are seductive layers of fleshy black cherries, cassis, dark chocolate and fresh raspberries which are complimented with dusty, tobacco leaf aromas; these are classic Cabernet Sauvignon notes. This wine delivers on all its aromatic potential. It is young, fresh and dense, but also has a tremendous richness with tiers of dark berries, dark chocolate, and cassis. This wine is one to enjoy now and one to lie down, it should age beautifully!
