Our Current Releases
2016 RESERVE CHARDONNAY - SANTA CRUZ MOUNTAINS
For our 2016 Reserve Chardonnay, we chose to use less new oak and finished the wine for a month in stainless steel prior to bottling. While maintaining the tradition of barrel fermentation and aging, we have been able to produce a more fruit forward and lighter Reserve Chardonnay with all of the same characteristics on the palette and nose
as the prior vintages. You will enjoy the hints of banana and melon on the nose and bright tropical notes on the palette.
2015 CHARDONNAY - RUSSIAN RIVER VALLEY
2015 marks the third vintage of our Russian River Valley Chardonnay. This pristine vineyard is located just outside of Healdsburg and produces exceptional fruit. Typical of the appellation, the wine has bright scents of lemon curd and crushed pineapple. The mid-palette has vibrant acidity with notes of apple, citrus and wet stone with a finish of stone fruits and a hint of caramel.
2014 ESTATE PINOT - SANTA CRUZ MOUNTAINS
The 2014 Estate Pinot Noir is one of my favorites to date. The complex aromas of dark fruit and tobacco continue to dominate the nose and raspberry and cocoa are ever present in the wine but this year, there is also a noticeable hint of rich dark plum on the palate. There are plenty of tannins to give this Pinot a long, silky smooth mid palate and finish. Drink now or lay down for another 7-10 years.
2014 PINOT NOIR - ANDERSON VALLEY
2014 was the second vintage of our Anderson Valley Pinot. Classic in style, this wine delivers aromas of toffee, raspberry and baking spice with a velvety palate offering flavors of blackberry and raspberry overtones. It may be our lightest Pinot in color, but don’t let it fool you. This is a terrific, well balanced wine with lots of fruit!
2014 PINOT NOIR - CARNEROS
On the palate this wine is extremely well integrated and balanced with layers of ripe plum, raspberry and baking spice. On the nose you will find aromas of lush dark cherry and plum with a hint of orange zest. With its balanced acidity and robust mid-palate, this is a great food wine.
2016 OVATION - PASO ROBLES
The 2016 Ovation is our fourth Bordeaux blend and is comprised of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Cabernet Franc grapes. In the glass, the wine displays rich aromas of tobacco, black cherry, and licorice. This is a very complex wine, rich in flavor, but embodies just the right balance of tannins to give it a long mid-palette and a smooth, rich finish.
2014 CABERNET SAUVIGNON - SONOMA COUNTY
Fruit forward yet refined, our Sonoma Cab has aromas of cassis, black cherry and cocoa. On the pallet flavors of current, vanilla and dark cherry precede a long smooth finish. Enjoy now or lay it down for another 10-15 years.
2015 CABERNET SAUVIGNON - NAPA VALLEY
Keeping true to its Napa pedigree, this vineyard produces incredibly intense, flavorful Cabernet. This opulent wine has a fantastic nose of plum and black cherry with a slight dusty quality, which the region is so well known for. It has concentrated lush tannins and a silky, intriguing finish. This nicely structured wine promises a long life ahead!
2014 CABERNET FRANC - SONOMA COUNTY
The Sonoma Coast is widely recognized as one of the best Bordeaux varietal growing regions in the country. In the glass, the wine displays rich aromas of black cherry, cola, and plum. This wine, true to its growing region, is refined and complex, with silky smooth tannins which provide for a long and elegant finish. Suggested pairings: Braised beef short ribs or grilled steak.
2016 MERLOT - DRY CREEK
This first vintage of Dry Creek Merlot is an inky, ruby-red wine with black cherry on the nose and light aromas of toasted oak. The mouthfeel is round and full bodied with silky tannins and bright flavors of blackberry, espresso, and mocha.
