2017 Russian River Valley Pinot Noir
The 2017 Russian River Valley Pinot Noir is a blend of clones 37-Mt. Eden and 828 from the eastern bench area within the Russian River Valley appellation. We chose clones for this area that would coax out the full potential of the Pinot Noir grapes complexity, structure and dept. When these clones are ultimately blended together the result is a richly-textured, fleshy Pinot Noir, with bright acidity, pure berry aromas and notes of spice and earth.
2017 Bennett Valley Syrah
We source our Syrah grapes from Nolan Vineyard in Bennett Valley, Sonoma County. Bennett Valley has large areas of ancient volcanic soil that is well drained and provides the right balance for grapevines in order to grow high quality wine grapes. The area is also a cooler grape growing region due to the gap adjacent to the Sonoma Mountain which allows cool fog to dump into the valley and blanket it most nights. The result? Long growing seasons and concentrated fruit with deep color and flavors. Our Syrah is inky purple, bursting with dark blackberry fruit and rich in texture.
2017 Sonoma Coast Chardonnay
We source our grapes from the Sonoma Coast Viticulture Area. The Sonoma Coast is one of California's best cool climate growing regions. The foggy mornings, chilly evenings and generally cooler temperatures allow heat sensitive varieties like Chardonnay to thrive and develop intense varietal character. This wine has only partial Malolactic Fermentation and the flavors reflect the area where it is grown. Exotic fruit and texture focused around a juicy core of juicy acidity make this wine both delicious and intense in varietal character.
2019 Russian River Valley Rosé of Pinot Noir
This is the fourth release of our Rosé of Pinot Noir. It defines what classic Rosé is: crisp, dry, delicate and light on its feet with pretty floral and berry notes. This is the perfect wine to enjoy on a warm Spring evening or when grilling out back. In fact, it is perfect anytime. We only make a small amount each Spring as a seasonal offering and it sells out quickly. Be sure to get yours!
2017 Asti Ranch, Alexander Valley Malbec
We source our Malbec from Asti Ranch near the town of Cloverdale in Sonoma County. Asti Ranch is located at the hot Northern end of Alexander Valley on rocky depleted soil, where the vines struggle to make it through the growing season each year. The vines produce small yields from this site because of the difficult growing conditions. The resulting clusters and berries are dark with intense sweetness and flavor. We harvest our Malbec early in the morning when it is chilly to preserve freshness and do no processing, we ferment it 100% whole cluster (stems not removed) with its native yeast. The result is a inky dark wine that is seductive in aroma and flavor. Intense berry and violet aromas jump from the glass. Rich, layered tannins let you know this is a serious wine, yet it has enough silkyness that you can still drink it in its youthful age.
