2006 Napa Valley Pinot Noir

Explosive blueberry, plum and blackberry fruit dominate the nose with youthful aromas. On the palate the wine reverberates these dark fruits while unfolding further into layers of candied fruits, dark chocolate, cola, tobacco, and lingering minerality. Deeply concentrated with a firm underlying structure, a bright uplift, and great length, the lushly textured palate brims with mouth watering black fruits followed by clove, cinnamon, spice in the finish. This wine will continue to unfold for 5 - 7 years.

2006 Russian River Pinot Noir

Our Russian River Pinot Noir is sourced from the cooler, western side of the Russian River Valley closer to the chilly Pacific breezes and less protected by coastal hills. The wine is produced entirely from Dijon 115 and grown on characteristic sandy Russian River soils. Formerly having produced the flavorful Gravenstein apples Sebastopol is known for, these soils transition nicely to produce explosively fruity Pinot Noirs with bright cherry flavors and spice. We find the Russian River designate to be the most approachable and hedonistic of all our Pinots.

2006 Sonoma Mountain "Red Dog Vineyard" Pinot Noir

Elegant floral notes of violets, cranberry, dried roses, fresh herbs, truffle, and black tea. Orange peel, cherry raspberry predominate on the palate framed nicely by subtle vanillin, cocoa and toasted oak. The wine is velvety in texture and finishes with very long, lingering flavors echoing the floral notes of the nose finishing with underlying tannins to age well. The wine is showing beautifully now, but experience indicates it will continue to develop deeper and more complex layers over the next 6 - 10 years.

2005 Carneros Pinot Gris

Familiar aromas of tangerine, honeydew, melon, green apple, and grapefruit provide the exotic but familiar backdrop to our Pinot Gris. Lemon zest, spice, almond paste, and subtle tropical notes echo in the flavors on the palate accompanied by creamy texture that is a little tight upon release. Crisp acidity and key lime flavors drive the wine through to the finish. The wine will continue to flesh out in the months and years ahead with additional layers and complexities to follow.
