The 2018 Sun Chase Pinot Noir is a massive, complex, nuanced wine of black cherry, orange peel, pine needle, black plum, slate, black tea. The incredibly silky entry opens to a seamless palate with tremendous length, with flavors of plum, clove, forest floor, morello cherry, tangerine oil, and rose oil, which persist for over a minute following the finish.
The 2019 UV Vineyard Chardonnay is a gorgeous, intense, racy wine of great purity. The nose is layered with lemon curd, lemon zest, orange blossom, Asian pear, oyster shell, and raw almond. On the palate, the wine is ample, yet with great tension and drive, with acidity lifting flavors of lemon curd, hazelnut, fresh pear, and pastry flour with just a hint of fresh sage.
The wine is aged in Atelier Centre France and Chassin cooperage for 14 months with 50% new barrels. The Platt site, like Grand Cru Chablis sites, is expressive of the vineyard terrior and reflective of a balanced barrel regime. Each site is allowed to express itself and that means that each of the wines has a unique barrel program and wine chemistry that reflect that particular site in a given vintage.
The 2017 Flanagan Cabernet has classic Cabernet notes of cedar, violets, and Christmas spices. The palate has Red and Black Current, Bay Leaf, and Tobacco. As always, the wine has a surprising amount of tannin structure for New World Cabernet. All of the Cabernet comes from hillside sites and the small berries produced from the steep, volcanic sites give the wine great color and concentration. This is a Cabernet that has the structure and secondary notes of a top Left Bank wine. Great farming, top vineyard sites, and restraint in the winemaking result in a balanced, age-worthy Cabernet.
We aged the wine in Atelier Centre France and Chassin cooperage for 14-months with 50% new barrels. The Platt site, like Grand Cru Chablis sites, is expressive of the vineyard terrior and reflective of a balanced barrel regime. I believe in letting each site express itself and that means that each of our wines has a unique barrel program and wine chemistry that reflect that particular site in a given vintage.
The 2017 Flanagan Pinot Noir Platt Vineyard is a compelling expression of what is widely acknowledged to be one of the greatest vineyard sites in California. The wine has a brilliant color and the fruit character, despite the very cool site, is explosive. The nose offers a rich bouquet of ripe cranberry, cola, and a hint of spice. The palate shows very clean dark red fruit with a silky, persistent finish. Incredible acidity, a beautiful mouthfeel, and an incredible purity of fruit character make this a reference point wine.
The 2017 Ritchie Chardonnay has a very expressive nose of jasmine. honeysuckle, and orange blossom. The palate is dominated by stone fruits like apricot and fresh peach and has a gorgeous minerality that carries the wine. This is a stunning wine, from one of Sonoma County’s most coveted sites for Chardonnay and will evolve in the bottle for many years to come.
The 2018 Flanagan Merlot Bennett Valley has compelling aromatic notes of Bay Leaf, Pepper, Cedar, and Saffron. The palate has Red Currant, Black Cherry, Bergomot, and Black Tea with a very elegant tannin structure. The acidity provides great balance. The small berries produced from the steep, volcanic hillside site give the wine great color and concentration. This is an elegant, age worthy, world class Merlot.
The 2018 Flanagan Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast offers an expressive nose of Rose Petals and Orange Blossom. On the palate the wine has very fine tannins, great acidity, and displays flavors of red plum skin and Rainier Cherry. The key to producing top flight Pinot Noir is sourcing from great vineyards. The sites that were the source for this wine have the right climate and soils to produce world class Pinot Noir. The winemaking is focused on balance and allowing the sites and the vintage to express themselves. The result is a wine that is delightful to drink on its own but also excellent with a meal.
The nose shows notes of Rangpur lime, jasmine, and a hint of vanilla. On the palate, the wine has Bosc pear and toasted almond. The wine has bright acidity and an elegant minerality. The wine was aged in 100% French oak barrels, using Atelier Centre France and Boutes cooperage for 11 months with 50% new barrels.
This is a stunning example of an AVA wine made from the top vineyards in Sonoma County.
The wine has a bright nose of fresh peach and ripe citrus. The palate reveals notes of Honeydew melon, plum, and Blood orange. The 2020 Riley’s Rows Rosé is delightful on its own but has the character and depth of flavor to pair with food. It can be enjoyed on the pontoon boat or with a duck confit salad at a top restaurant.
