2015 Sauvignon Blanc

Morgaen Lee –  Yountville

Picture yourself enjoying a chilled glass of this crisp wine as you relax on the patio.  The balanced acidity plays off of apple on the nose with hints of stone fruit–nectarine, peach, and apricot.  Delightful!

2015 Chardonnay

Sangiacomo Roberts Road – Sonoma Coast2010 Chardonnay

This is one of the best Chardonnay sites in Northern California.  Coastal influences contribute to a great fruit, acid, and mineral balance.  Medium weight, the fruit lends notes of apple and pear, which commingle with hints of nuts and toast from the new French oak.

2014 Cabernet Sauvignon

Odyssey – Atlas Peak

The 2014 was an ideal warm, dry growing season on Atlas Peak, where vintages are known for their richness, complexity, and structure. This deep purple cab delivers cassis, blackberries, and dark chocolate on the palate, and the tannins match with vibrant acidity.

2013 Blanc de Noirs, Sparkling Winesparkles

Sonoma Stage – Sonoma Coast

This gorgeous Blanc de Noirs has a delicate salmon color.  Made from 100% Pinot Noir grapes, dark cherry, currant, and strawberry dominate both aroma and flavor, with hints of cassis and blackberry.  The red fruit flavors build mid-palate and finish with a soft, lingering, creamy texture.

 

Available Vintages

2013 Zinfandel

Beatty Ranch – Howell Mountain

Old vines on Howell Mountain produced this polished, medium-bodied Zin. Notes of blackberries, spice, and cracked pepper combine with a hint of vanilla bean for a richness and intensity that lingers through the smooth finish.

ZN-Beatty-Ranch-2015

2011 Zinfandel

Teldeschi – Dry Creek Valley

After a moderately cool growing season, our grapes produced a substantial wine, typical of this Sonoma valley that is prime Zin territory. This vintage has robust dark fruit balanced with a little mocha and hints of spice.

A silver lining to the  California drought is the great Cabs that were produced from the 2013 harvest. Our ’13 Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon is elegant and balanced with refined tannins.  The palate boasts plenty of blue fruit with black currant and a hint of vanilla.

2011 Cabernet SauvignonRafael

Rafael – Oak Knoll

Reminiscent of an Old World Bordeaux, our 2011 is a complex, medium-bodied wine that’s balanced, yet lively. The red and black fruits mix with notes of cherry, berry, and red currant. With hints of vanilla mocha from the barrel, it’s a great all-around wine.

2010 Cabernet Sauvignon

River Run – St. Helena and Broken Rock – Napa Valley

We blended the red fruit-driven grapes of River Run (same as 2008!) with the deep purple, black fruit-dominated grapes from Broken Rock to produce this deep, rich Cab.  It’s aged nicely and is ready to drink now.

Coming Attractions

The overall quality of the 2015 vintage was superb across the Napa Valley, but the Rutherford and Oakville stood out above the rest. They both hold so much promise that we decided to produce each of them.  Here’s a preview of these two outstanding Cabs:

2015 Cabernet Sauvignon  

Ponti Road – Rutherford   

Six Acre

This vineyard, managed by premiere winemaker Steve Matthiasson, features inky black fruit with refined tannins.  Fans of our 2012 Rutherford will not be disappointed!

 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon

  Six Acre – Oakville

The Oakville’s characteristic blend of lush red and black fruit combines with a great balance of acidity to tannins.  We are so pleased with the ’13 Oakville CS that we could not pass on the fabulous ’15 vintage.
