As always, the 2010 vintage is made entirely from fruit from our 16-acre vineyard at the top of Spring Mountain. Comprised of 90 percent Cabernet Sauvignon, 8 percent Merlot, and 2 percent Cabernet Franc, the wine was aged for 22 months in new French oak and then aged another 12 months in bottle prior to release. This wine shows the lush fruit and intensity of our mountaintop growing conditions. The wine boasts hints of mocha, creamy oak, cassis, ripe currant, black cherry,and wild berry fruit. The well-integrated tannins combine with the flavors to create an elegant and stylish wine with a long, intricate finish. Wine Profile:

2014 Chardonnay, Carneros

The 2014 Chardonnay was sourced from a gravelly, alluvial vineyard in Carneros that was planted in 1965 to the Old Wente clone of Chardonnay. The wine was barrel fermented and aged in 50% new French Oak barrels for 11 months. The nose is a beautiful mélange of lemon zest, tropical fruit, truffle, flint, and clove. On the palate, the balance is immediately evident, with a juicy, Burgundian sense of minerality and lush fruit. There is lively acidity, but the wine is also rich - a vestige of its sunny origins in California. Wine Profile:
  • Production: 200 cases made
  • Appellation: Carneros
  • Blend: Chardonnay 100%
  • Alcohol: 14.1%
