The 2015 Vintage started with a cool spring that limited crop yields
severely...especially in the Sonoma Coast. The lower crop yields produced
a fairly intense vintage with riper fruit profiles.
Our Pinot Noir fermentations are relatively short...typically lasting
form 9-11 days. We don’t have a rule based approach to using whole
clusters but most ferments include 10-20% whole clusters.

Our 2015 Russian River Valley Chardonnay is sourced from the legendary Ritchie Vineyard, a vineyard that was planted in 1971 and is widely-recognized to be amongst some of the very best Chardonnay sites in the country.  The Old Wente clone (on AXR-1 rootstock) Chardonnay is grown on the rolling hillsides of the Russian River Valley. The Sandy Goldridge Loam soils that the Chardonnay grapes are grown on originated from an archaic seabed containing tuffaceous volcanic pumice deposits mixed with small pebbles. The oceanic coastal breezes deliver cooling fog in the mornings and evenings, creating idyllic balanced growing conditions.  This combination brings forth an exceptionally unique “Grand Cru” site that produces wines of intense character and complexity.

The 500 Chevaux is a classic Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon: muscular, naturally more tannic and built to age yet with a plush and polished mouthfeel and lingering finish.

This voluptuous and concentrated Cabernet Sauvignon shows rich aromas of blackberry and creme de cassis that evolve into notes of violet and and wild berry liqueur. Hints of espresso and dark chocolate with soft, savory notes of cigar box unfold in the background. The wine is opulent, with firm structure and radiant tannins.

The name means “500 Horsepower” to recall an expertly-tuned Formula One racecar: sleek, powerful and designed to express the gifts of our site with precision and finesse.

The velvet-throttled Rallye 76 is a beautifully layered and complex Cabernet Sauvignon that amplifies the elegance and power of the Valley’s East Benchlands.

Rich and seamless, this high-toned wine delights with notes of dark berry, roasted espresso beans and spice box. Integrated aromas of curry, white pepper and anise delicately etch against a backdrop of chocolate and rich leather.

The name recalls the power and thrill of Monaco’s racing history, while the wine itself speaks with a refined and unmistakable California accent.

The 2015 Appassionata displays an incredibly opaque, dark purple core with hints of magenta and ruby on the rim. The nose delights with aromas of black currant, blueberry, blackberry, black cherry, and violets over complex secondary notes of cacao, tobacco, a touch of wet leather, crushed earth, a kiss of ground coffee, finely crushed stones, vanilla bean and exotic baking spices. This forward style Cabernet will drink at it's finest over the next 5-7 years.

Intense aromatics and rich, pungent red-toned fruit make a strong opening statement in the 2015 Cabernet Franc. Varietal notes are amped up in this sensual, fruity Cabernet Franc. I would prefer to drink the 2015 sooner rather than later, but there is more than enough depth to support at least a handful of years in the cellar.

The sensational 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Rutherford comes from clone 4 and the old Georges III Vineyard now owned by Beckstoffer. This is a floral, earthy wine with a dense purple color and a big, sweet, complex nose that follows through on the palate with loads of kirsch liqueur, black currants, dusty soil undertones, some cedar wood and spicy oak. Opaque purple, full-bodied, and generously endowed, it can be drunk over the next 15-20 years.
