Chardonnay with age? You better believe it! Fermented 50% in stainless steel barrels and 50% in French oak barrels, our 2014 Chardonnay is just now hitting it’s stride.
Our 2014 Roma’s Vineyard is a Pinot-lover’s Pinot Noir. Not a big bruiser Cali Pinot. This is elegant, high-elevation Pinot Noir that soaks in the sunshine high above the cloud line with long hang time in the cold reaches above the Anderson Valley of Mendocino county.
Our 2014 Syrah is a mouthful of juice! Big, bold, in-your-face, dark, and sumptuous. It goes down so easy, the bottom of the bottle comes up quick.
Timothy’s pick for finesse and power. When you can’t decide between opening a Cabernet or a Pinot, open Grenache!
The Petaluma Gap is one of the newest appellations in Sonoma County. Our grapes sit on top of a knoll, with an eastern exposure to maximize the early morning sunlight, and give it some protection from the intense direct heat late in the afternoon with cool breezes from the pacific. Great fruit on this wine, a little earth from the loamy soils, smaller berries and cluster give a bit more concentration to this Pinot, which has been barrel-aged for 12 months.
The 2015 Chardonnay gives notes of lemon curd, grapefruit peel and ripe peaches with touches of fresh hay and toast. Medium-bodied, with an oiliness to the texture and crisp backbone.
A blend of 80% Syrah, and 20% Grenache, we find that this cooler pocket of Sonoma county, with late morning fogs and coastal breezes, reminds us of the northern Rhône. Wth rocky basalt/schist soils, big minerality, and heavy clay, this is a big and serious wine. Very dark color, sourced from five micro sites on the property, each with a different clone of Syrah or Grenache and different characteristics.
Cabernet Sauvignon from Herman Vineyard planted in 1972, right in the heart of Sonoma Valley. Today, these old vines produce a Cabernet with a unique terroir expression with some sage, terra cotta and olive notes to go with dark fruits.
