This wine displays a pale golden tone with brilliant clarity. I find expressive aromas of golden apple, fig, and ripe pear that integrate nicely with richer aromas of light caramel, hints of truffle, and toasted vanillin oak. On the palate, the wine has a beam of bright acidity, encompassed by a full bodied creamy texture and a lingering finish.
76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Cabernet Franc, 8% Merlot
Dark, luscious aromas of boysenberry, blackberry, and anise with tones of lightly toasted oak and hints of vanilla explode from the glass. Enjoy with rich meat dishes, full-flavored cheeses or roasted eggplant.
Dark berry fruit, hints of spice and light toasted oak, vanilla tones on the nose in this wine. On the palate the wine is very well balanced with depth on the mid-palate. The attack is big, supported by layers of flavors on the midpalate. Moderate tannins, deep underlying fruit character. The finish is big, and lingers with dark red berry fruit and toasted oak.
96% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc
Bright red cherry and raspberry aromas, accompanied by dried floral tones intertwined with hints of mocha, vanilla, and cola. Wonderful round mid-palate that is well-balanced on a beam of acidity. The framework of gentle tannins leads into a lingering finish that is both full and bright.
100% Pinot Noir
Ripe red berry flavors are balanced by light vanilla oak notes that transition into a deep finish of dark berry fruit. Pairs deliciously with traditional turkey and all the trimmings. This wine is also wonderful with ham, duck, goose or salmon.
A blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes from our home estate. After each harvest is complete, the new wine is aged for six months in neutral French oak before being added to our perpetual cuvee (or solera) which contains a blend of vintages since the original cuvee began decades ago. A crisp, fresh and appealing sparkling wine with a depth of character that will add sparkle and celebration to any dish.
