Winemaker Notes: This Chardonnay starts with a beautiful bouquet of soft tropical fruits, honeysuckle and Bartlett pear, then continues with hints of caramelized brown sugar and vanilla wafer. The kiss of french oak smooths the abundant acidity that graces the palate and finishes with lingering butterscotch.
Winemaker Notes: Upon opening our 2018 Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon, aromas of black cherry and cassis fill the glass, followed by a hint of mocha. On the palate, bold tannins are balanced with concentrated flavors of ripe fig with savory notes of black olive and dried herbs. 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc, 3% Petite Sirah
Winemaker Notes: Bright plum and red cherry-like fruit aromas with a light touch of French Oak and spice carry through to the flavors. Lush mouthfeel with forward fruit in the mid palate. So silky and tasty with nice purity of flavor and good richness and length.
Blackberry pie with vanilla ice cream, black licorice ropes, and a whole gallon of sun tea. Ultra extracted by California sunshine and a bit of that classic Russell P. From “don’t pick it till you’ve finished your Christmas shopping” magic, this is the most dangerous wine I’ve made yet. For anyone who drinks French roast and likes their bacon extra crispy.
Winemaker Notes: Shows dark purple in the glass – initially very floral including aromas of violets along with an elegant sweetness of fruit (blackberry), a hint of mocha and brown sugar and at times a perceptible dusty characteristic. This is a pretty bouquet. On the palate there are flavors of ripe plum and red and dark cherry. Good acidity, plenty flavor and oh so balanced. The tannins feel nice on the finish – harmonious with the rest of the palate. Wine Spectator Rated 92 points
Winemaker Notes: Crimson red with plum highlights. Expressive aromas of blackberry, dark chocolate, and lightly toasted almonds with a hint of spices and vanilla. Complex flavors of ripe black cherry, cocoa, and hints of rosemary. Well balanced with a velvety mouthfeel, vibrant fruit, and soft tannins.
Winemaker Notes: expressive nose exhibits beautiful notes of red brambly fruits, violets and marmalade. Subtle hints of lavender, leather and soft cedar add complexity to the fragrant aroma. The entry is focused, with ripe fruit on the forefront, and supported well by mature tannin and structured acidity. The wine expresses prominent flavors of chalk and cocoa, adding to the depth and layers of the mouthfeel. A lively, sweet sensation remains towards the end of the palate, with lingering red fruit in the finish.
Winemaker Notes: The exciting nose shows hints of ripe raspberry, plum, marionberry and butterscotch. It is floral and perfumy and delivers striking accents of wet rose petal and aged potpourri. The outburst of sweet red fruit in the mid-palate is supported by fine acidity and creates a firm foundation in the mouthfeel. The pleasant flavors of brambly fruits will linger throughout the finish, with just enough tannin to support the structure of this wine.
#49 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2019. Wine Spectator rated 91 points. Winemaker Notes: Classy cassis fruits, lead pencil, and tobacco notes all emerge from the glass, and it's medium to full-bodied, with ripe tannin, integrated oak, and a great finish. It makes a mockery of just about every other Cabernet Sauvignon in this price range.
Winemaker Notes: This Chardonnay is a great balance of bright citrus and honey with a touch of oak character and hints of juicy peach. Crafted with care so that no single flavor overpowers another, this wine is simply delicious and easy-to-drink. Pairs beautifully with shrimp, steamed mussels, creamy pastas, roasted chicken, and grilled vegetables.
Winemaker Notes: Deep and alluring with aromas of spice, peppercorn, and chocolate. The palate is rich with voluptuous flavors of succulent ripe berry, coffee, cocoa, and a trace of leather.
