2017 White Burgundy Reserve

North Coast

Alc 14.3% | TA .57 | pH 3.49 | 159 cases

The nose has bright aromas of fresh citrus and green apple that jump out of the glass. This is the crème-de-la-crème of White Burgundy; only the best, hand-selected barrels, are used for this, Pinot Blanc based blend. Rich and complex, golden apple and starfruit flavors mingle with truffle and hazelnut. Integrated oak leaves a rich, creamy mouthfeel.

2016 Dolcetto

Russian River Valley | Sonoma County

Alc 14.4% | TA .56 | pH 3.77 | 87cases

This light-bodied Italian varietal was historically enjoyed as an everyday wine. Our fruit is derived from the cool climate of the Russian River Valley, influencing its lively acid and fresh Black plum and berry flavors. Revel in its sweet entry, with black fruit flavors, that work in unison with integrated oak and structured tannins to form a silky, pleasing finish.

2016 Tannat

Upper Ridge Vineyard | Pine Mountain / Cloverdal Peak

Alc 14.8% | TA .57 | pH 3.70 | 130 cases

Tannat is known for its high level of tannins (hence the name), and offers a winemaking challenge in trying to tame them. In this vintage enjoy flavors of dark plum, dried herb, and spice. The tannins are powerful, but balanced. This is a wine that will increase in complexity over time.
