2014 Chardonnay, Russian River Valley
$36 | Limited
This 2014 Russian River Valley Chardonnay is bursting with aromas of citrus blossom, nectarine and spice baked pear. Aromas of white peach and tangerine, knit together by bright acidity for a long-complex finish. Barrel fermentation and oak aging for 12 months have added hints of candied ginger, and baking spice to a subtle minerality on the finish.
2014 Chardonnay, Fort Ross-Seaview
$48 | Very Limited
Maybe the most Burgundian Chardonnay in our portfolio, this seductive Chardonnay displays explosive aromas of lime blossom and William Pear with underlying mineral notes. On the pallet the wine displays tension between bright acidity and cool-climate structure framed with flavors of nectarine and lemon custard.
2014 Pinot Noir, Russian River Valley
$38 | Limited
A truly outstanding Russian River Valley Pinot Noir, the aromas are dominated by bright red fruit tones of Bing cherry and red raspberry, while black fruits dominate on the palette. The bright aromas expand and give way to black plum and toasted baking spices. The wine has bright acidity and firm but fine tannins that should allow for short term cellaring. As always, the wine was bottled without refining or filtration.
2013 Grenache, Sonoma Mountain

Cracked white pepper and Provencal herb aromas give into flavors of red plum and pomegranate. The lifted aromas are followed by flavors of red currant, melted licorice and grilled spices. Oak aging in neutral barrel for 15 months have added hints of savory herbs, grilled meats and aged mesquite to this complex and delicious wine.
