The 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.
Intoxicating notes of citrus blossom, pineapple, and lychee aromatics with underlying hints of wet stone minerality. Bright and racy acidity frames the mid-palate with zesty notes of grapefruit, lime zest, and white watermelons. The wine will develop some natural tartrate crystals through aging. Enjoy chilled at 45F and let this unique wine blossom as it warms up in the glass.
An elegant and seductive perfume of white peach, ginger, and dried sage ascends, leading to a rush of Asian pear, lemon marmalade, and tropical lychee flavors. A layer of crushed chalk minerality and brioche-like toastiness emerges as the wine opens in the glass. Delightfully balanced with a bright and zingy acidity, backed by a rich and full-bodied texture that allows this Sauvignon Blanc to get better with each sip.
The 2016 "Appassionata" displays an incredibly opaque, purple core with hints of magenta and ruby on the rim. The nose delights with aromas of blackcurrant liqueur, 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.
2016 Cabernet Sauvignon (Coombsville) is superb. Dark, powerful, and savory, full-bodied, it packs a serious punch. The near-perfect 2016 growing season started early, saw ideal weather conditions throughout and wrapped up as the valley's first significant fall rainstorm arrived on October 14. Thanks to a relatively steady and mild July and August and then a series of warm days at the end of the growing season, vineyards were able to progress to perfect ripeness. Wines from the 2016 vintage are now quietly developing in cellars throughout Napa Valley and vintners are pinching themselves and smiling for the gift it appears Mother Nature has given them: a fifth consecutive vintage of stellar quality Napa Valley wines.
The sensational 2016 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.
The 2017 Patel Sauvignon Blanc is a gorgeous, distinctive white built on textural breadth and volume. Aging on the lees in 100% light-toast Ermitage barrels lends lovely shades of nuance to the fruit, which primarily comes from the McGah vineyard in Rutherford. Zesty lemon peel combines with savory sage, mint, tomato leaf and a hint of well-integrated new oak in this super-expressive, inviting Sauvignon Blanc from Raj Patel.
The wine is very elegant with aromas of apricot, peach, carmel and honey, is balanced by a bright acidity, nice weight mid-palate,with copious amounts of apricot and peach that lingers to a crisp finish.
Very well balanced. The 2014 "Nobility" is delicately layered with aromas and flavors of honey, apricot, vanilla, pear, toasty oak, fig, tobacco, and a balanced acidity that carries through to a rich, honeyed finish.
