Fall Release

The Fall Release will open on August 14th, 2018. Our Fall wines are Estate grown and vineyard designated. The offering is two Chardonnays and four Pinot Noirs including our Eva Marie Cuvee and the inaugural 2016 Alana Vineyard Chardonnay. Save the Date, these wines are highly sought after.

2016 Alana Vineyard Chardonnay

Set up in the hills between the town of Graton and Occidental in the Green Valley of the Russian River Valley,  the Alana Vineyard is small but mighty. The wine has wonderful notes of lemon meringue, grilled pineapple and fresh-baked bread.  The palate sings with rich toffee and vanilla bean notes while carrying a beautiful acidity that keeps the finish fresh and lingering. 

Alana will be released on August 14th - save the date!  

2016 Durell Vineyard Chardonnay

The Durell Vineyard Chardonnay is always one of the most anticipated harvests of the season.  We source from 4 different blocks from various parts of the Durell property and each of them brings different aspects to the resulting wines in the glass.  Together, they create a nuanced and elegant wine that offers the perfect balance of each of these blocks.

2016 Cuvée Eva Marie Pinot Noir

The 2016 Cuvée Eva Marie Pinot Noir holds such a special place in our hearts.  After fermenting and aging all of the Pinot Noir blocks from our One Sky vineyard separately, we select the finest barrels from the lots to create a blend that best exemplifies the site and vintage.

2016 Walala Vineyard Pinot Noir

2016 was our second year making a vineyard designate from this phenomenal site and we couldn't be happier with the results.  Brimming with black fruits, dark chocolate, pink peppercorn and rhubarb, the wine is not shy about showing off its muscle.  Dark and structured, it also has a savory note that hints at charcuterie and coffee.

2016 Gap's Crown Vineyard Pinot Noir

The influence of fog and wind on the iconic Gap’s Crown vineyard creates a site that produces world-class Pinot Noir with perfect balance of blue fruits and mouthwatering acidity.  The nose of the 2016 Pinot Noir hints at its cooler origin, evoking fresh blackberry galette with undertones of hibiscus and red licorice.

2016 Durell Vineyard Pinot Noir

The Durell Vineyard Pinot Noir is always a favorite around the winery with its wonderful mix of juiciness and spice. The 2016 seduces with notes of ripe raspberry, sasparilla and hints of fresh earthiness. Upon release, the wine will be generous with wonderful, ripe fruit and as it ages the fruit will slowly move to the backseat while the more earthy qualities start to peak out and add additional aspects to this beautiful wine.
