Chard + Pinot + Zin
2020 Chardonnay, Russian River Valley
On the nose, enticing aromas of ripe Golden Delicious apple skin, flakes of freshly baked kouign-amann pastry and sun-kissed magnolia blossom meet hints of crushed Marcona almond. On the palate, this wine exudes purity and elegance. The entry is quite fresh and inviting and with wonderful creaminess that comes from nine months of intermittent bâtonnage, and then an additional five months of aging with minimal oxygen incursion, maintaining the wine’s energy. Subtle minerality frames the crisp green pear and delicate honey notes. Bottled unfiltered, this Chardonnay will drink gracefully over the next 5-8 years.
2019 Charlie Clay Pinot Noir, Sonoma Coast
This beautiful expression of coastal Pinot Noir reveals aromas of wild red raspberry, fresh pomegranate and hibiscus tea. It’s delicately structured on the palate, with great freshness. Complementary tones of sweet tobacco leaf, red fruit, young lilac blossom and black tea linger gracefully on the finish. Our 2019 Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir will drink best over the next 8+ years.
2019 Grower's Reserve Zinfandel, Dry Creek Valley
Our Grower’s Reserve Zinfandel celebrates the exceptional fruit from the most distinctive vineyards in the Dry Creek Valley appellation. This Zinfandel has an enticing aroma profile of black cherry flesh dusted with sweet baking spices, shavings of vanilla pod, and a hint of orange zest. Wonderful and lifted flavors of blackberry pie, milk chocolate, and savory notes frame the finely grained tannins and the finish is long and spicy. Enjoy for the next 7-10 years.
