The 2015 Carte Blanche Proprietary Red Wine is a Right-Bank inspired blend of 59.5% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Merlot, 18% Cabernet Franc, 4% Petite Verdot and .5% Malbec.

Beckstoffer’s Missouri Hopper Cabernet Sauvignon in Oakville provides a full spectrum of rich and dark fruit, while the Sage Ridge Vineyard Cabernet Franc from Sage Ridge Canyon offers nuances of tobacco, plum, and roasted poblano. The 2015 Proprietary Red shows blackberry, black cherry and espresso on the nose. The palate entry is silky and focused, showcasing currant, crushed blackberries, graphite, and roasted poblano pepper through an enduring finish. 150 cases produced.

Sun Chase vineyard sits high atop the Petaluma Gap, taking in much of what the Pacific Ocean and sun have to offer. Rocky and gravelly Goudling series clay loam provide the perfect home for the four clones and vineyard blocks that make up this striking wine. The 2015 Sun Chase Vineyard Pinot Noir is loaded with character. The nose reveals bright bing cherry, dried thyme, a hint of sage, blueberry, and sandalwood. The palate shows power and elegance across the mid-palate to a long finish. Notes of black cherry, boysenberry, oolong tea, and thyme layer together and persist through the finish. 200 cases produced.
Showing off its gorgeous fruit, the 2013 Estate presents with deep dark ruby hues and glistening garnet at the rim. Generous aromas of black cherry, boysenberry, fresh oak, beautiful cacao powder and cigar box carry through the velvety entrance & round mouthfeel. Lingering fresh acidity and dense firm tanins confirm the perfect balance of this wine, while layers of rich dark fruit and touches of strawberry assure a long delicious finish.
Leading into the 2014 season, drought conditions worried growers throughout Napa Valley. Yet, bud break came early and beautiful weather prevailed. Our reservoirs had filled, but water management in the vineyard was crucial. Timely irrigation was essential to produce perfectly ripe fruit.
In the end, every piece of the puzzle came together. There were no damaging heat spikes during the growing season and ripening balanced the early bud break with an equally early harvest. What could have been a disappointing vintage turned out to be another beauty.
After very detailed selection in the vineyard, the most ideal fruit made its way to the winery. Then, pampered like the baby it was, the chosen grapes received optical sorting, barrel fermenting, and hand punch downs. Each step designed to allow a slow unfolding of the 2014 Eternity.
The 2014 Estate Cabernet provokes exquisite expectations with its presentation of deep dark sienna and touches of ruby on the rim of the glass. This is followed by an intensely concentrated nose of dark black berries and cassis with additions of cedar, cherries and chocolate. While on the palate you experience a velvety entrance that remains round and rich with layers of cherry, sage, boysenberries, plum liquor and bergamot. Safely said, this beauty will satisfy all of the senses as it lingers for a long finish.
The 2015 Eternity is a spectacular vintage! Opulent in every way, perfectly balanced, a velvety texture, firmly structured...words do not do it justice.
While both the Suckling Report and the Wine Advocate awarded this vintage of Eternity 95pts, at the end of the day, what matters most is that the 2015 Eternity is a vintage to celebrate the ordinary and the extraordinary. That is what an exceptionally beautiful wine is all about. From bud break to bottle, the ’15 Eternity responded beautifully to all the love it received. It was a short, difficult growing year. Yet, as it is often said: well-seasoned growers and winemakers, who deeply understand the collaboration, science and art of winemaking, make all the difference.
The 2017 vintage will again dazzle you with brilliant hues of diamonds and gold as well as inviting aromas of pear, cassis, mango, honeysuckle and almond paste, topped off with hints of meringue and lemon pie. With a fresh vibrancy these beautiful aromas develop on the palate in perfect balance with the acidity. The 2017 Wild Iris then leaves you with lingering honey and citrus. Yum!
