Perfumed with candied pineapple and lychee nut, this classic tropical Sauvignon Blanc displays flavors of ruby grapefruit and lemon zest. Brilliant acidity elongates the finish on this single vineyard designate from the hills on the eastern edge of the Russian River Valley.
Syrah has many faces throughout the world. Our quintessential cool climate Syrah shows an incredible spectrum of intense, deep, inky purple colors to a dense garnet. The nose is rich and filled with black licorice, dark bramble berries and notes of fresh lilac. Well defined tannin adds structure to dry pomegranate-like acidity. Visually, our Syrah is electric. Although delicious when young, these wines will benefit from aging.
Our highly aromatic Viognier is bursting with notes of citrus blossom, honeysuckle and jasmine flower. Completely stainless steel fermented, with no malolactic conversion, this dry wine possesses a textured mid-palate reminiscent of banana crème brulee, giving way to a bright and zesty long finish.
Our zinfandels are made in the old-world style with great complexity and balance, full of nuance and spice. In the vineyard we diligently watch the grapes to ensure even ripeness and controlled sugar levels which produce balanced and structured wines.
Pinot Blanc, when bottled alone, shows great minerality and natural stone fruit flavors . We produce a small amount of this wine and are very proud of its expression. We utilize 100% stainless steel fermentation to capture the explosive bouquet of Granny Smith apple and candied cantaloupe. Rich flavors of pink melon and green pear help balance the seering, but surprising acidity. A great wine to accompany light fair or on its own.
