2015 Cabernet Sauvignon
Our Cabernet Sauvignon comes from the heart of Rutherford in the Napa Valley. The vineyard was originally planted by Mrs. Thomas Rutherford in 1895 – many acclaimed wines originated from this vineyard including wines made by Andre Tchelistcheff who’s wines became the definition of Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon in the 1960’s and 1970’s.
Driven by the desire to make fruit-driven, approachable Cabernet Sauvignon, this single vineyard wine is pressed and racked into 100% new French and American oak barrels. After aging for 24 months in barrel, we select the finest lots for our final blend prior to bottling.
It is an intensely deep colored wine, with a balanced round mouthfeel, supported by supple soft tannins. Flavors of black currant, cherry and plum are bookended by spice, subtle vanilla and toasty notes across layers of velvety tannins. The taste evolves into a delightfully smooth finish.

2019 Carneros Chardonnay
The Los Carneros AVA, located in the southernmost end of the Napa Valley, is known to be one of the premiere Chardonnay growing regions in the world. Our 2019 Chardonnay was handpicked from two neighboring vineyards, the Baldacci Family’s Honey B Vineyard and Beckstoffer’s Carneros Lake Vineyard.
Our winemakers beautifully melded this wine using a partial barrel ferment, complete malolactic fermentation succeeded by nine months of sur lees aging in new French and American oak.
Upon first pour, the Chardonnay evokes aromas of nectarines, Honeycrisp apples and vanilla. A taste reveals flavors of stone fruits, pears and honeysuckles. The rich and smooth finish is complimented by hints of toasty notes and spices.

2019 Yountville Sauvignon Blanc
Our Sauvignon Blanc is handpicked from the Hoxsey Family’s Block House Vineyard in the heart of Yountville. Thought to be one of the oldest vineyards in the Napa Valley, it was named for pioneer George Yount’s block house – the first Kentucky style block house west of the Mississippi. Harvested at peak maturity in late summer, this wine exhibits the complexity and core attributes found in Yountville Sauvignon Blancs.
Fermented in 100% stainless steel, this wine evokes aromas of honeydew melon, lemon zest and apricot. Tasting immediately reveals bursts of juicy peach, lemon and citrus. The mouthfeel is an intense flavorful experience balanced by a smooth enjoyable finish.

2020 Dry Creek Valley Rosé
With two years of devastating fires, our winemakers worked hand-in-hand with growers to produce an extremely limited amount of our beloved Grenache Rosé – about 100 cases.
Our Rosé comes from Dry Creek Valley – located Northwest of the town of Healdsburg. 16 miles long and 2 miles wide, this premium winegrowing region produces a wide variety of grapes. A diversity caused by the unique characteristics of an AVA with many different soil types, elevations and exposures to the sun, wine and water.
Maintaining a strong influence of Rosés produced in the Rhone Valley of France, it’s a beautifully colored light wine, perfect for summer drinking. It delivers a smooth tasting experience enriched by melon, strawberry and stone fruit aromas.
