A paragon of complexity, this wine displays elegance and finesse without sacrificing weight and depth. Fruit notes of blueberry and raspberry greet and entice you in for a taste. The palate reveals mouthwatering minerality rounded with plum and blood orange.

Spectacular aromatics are enhanced by a flinty, mineral mouthfeel and lingering finish. Asian pear, summer peach, and honeyed tangerine greet the nose along with fragrant white flowers and fresh Granny Smith apples.

The 2016 marks the eighth vintage of Buoncristiani Chardonnay, a wine that focuses primarily on fruit, minerality and balanced acidity, with secondary flavors of integrated new French oak richness framed by a full mid palate and a lingering finish.

With brilliant hues of diamonds and gold, the 2016 Wild Iris prepares you for something special. An explosion of fruit; pear, apricot, mango, peaches and touches of citrus satisfies all expectations. These hedonistic aromas are met with equal ripe fruit flavors and the delicate addition of white chocolate, jasmine and yellow raspberries.  A round unctuous texture, in perfect balance with fresh acidity, takes the 2016 Iris to a whole new level. This pleasure continues with an amazingly long finish.

Sourced from high in the eastern Vaca Mountains of Napa Valley, the fruit for our 2016 vintage Sauvignon Blanc arrived at the winery packed with vibrant fruit flavors, intense aromatic character, and mouth-watering acidity.  This young wine is pure pleasure in the glass, with subtle notes of flint, wet clay, and lemongrass mingling with the forward tropical and citrus notes that frame the wine.  On the palate, the bracing acidity calls out for fresh seafood and a large body of water to pull up next to.  While it will continue to open and evolve with time in the bottle, this latest vintage of our Sauvignon Blanc can be enjoyed straight away.

We make this wine for one reason only: because it is awesome. This vineyard has  been the source of my favorite Viognier in California for many years.

namesake, Bebê is classy yet sassy; and will always leave you happy and ready for more.

 

Gorgeous, lively pink color; this outstanding, structured Rose of Syrah has delicate scents of red berry, violet and a touch of dried herb. The fresh savory palate delivers sour cherry, cranberry, white pepper and cinnamon. It finishes on a mouth-watering and food friendly acid profile.

This is a crisp and focused wine with refreshing acidity that envelops the tropical fruit flavors with a subtle floral note; enhancing the complex mouthfeel through to the finish.

A bright wine, a hint of citrus on the nose shows, lemon mirengue and a touch of toasted brioche.  In the mouth the wine is fresh, crisp with nice weight and texture.  A hint of well-integrated oak and a touch of sweetness, the wine has a long lingering finish with excellent vibrancy and freshness.

An elegant wine with aromatics of sweet white flowers, this expression of Sauvignon Blanc is powerful, and anything but typical. Barrel fermentation and aging lends a touch of sweetness, textured mouthfeel and a dry finish, while weaving an intricate and seductive blend of herbs, ripe white peach, and a touch of pineapple. Aging for 14 months in 100% French Oak makes this Sauvignon Blanc rich and pleasing to the palate, with a smooth creamy texture balanced with a hint of spice and refreshing acidity.

$61.00 per Bottle

The Napa Valley Pinot Noir in this Provençal style dry wine is chosen specifically for this Rosé to make a direct press style, allowing for higher, brighter acids and lower alcohol. The juice's only skin contact is limited to just in the press, lasting only moments, producing a delicate salmon-pink color followed by a controlled fermentation in stainless steel and 7 months aging in neutral oak, adding to weight and complexity.
