The Azur Reserve is made in the classic Bordeaux style, balanced with the rich fruit offered by the Napa Valley terroir. The grapes are selectively chosen from the hillsides of Napa to highlight concentrated black fruits. Every bottle has a complex combination of blackberry and currant expressions with a refreshing brightness which leads into lingering tannins.

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 2015 Vintage provided beautiful fruit. Because of a cool foggy spring we had very low crop yields. This resulted in especially concentrated fruit from the steep hillsides in Bennett Valley. We harvested our 2015 Merlot on September 13th, which, was even earlier than 2014. The volcanic hillsides that are the source for our Merlot produce very small berries that have tremendous intensity and structure. Farming at the highest level, picking for balance, and making the wine with minimal intervention all contribute to what we believe is one of the top Merlot wines made in California.

The 2015 Vintage started with a cool spring that limited crop yields severely... especially in the Sonoma Coast. The lower crop yields produced an intense vintage with riper fruit profiles. Platt 2015 yields were 53 tons for the 31.3 acres of vines or about 1.8 tons per acre.

Riley's Rows is the project of Eric Flanagan's daughter Riley. Riley grew up with Flanagan Wines, and is now off on her own!
 
The 2015 Riley’s Rows Chardonnay North Coast has an expressive nose that encompasses both tropical fruits and barrel notes. The vintage character means that this wine shows a riper fruit profile. Pear and stone fruits like peach and apricot predominate rather than the citrus notes we typically see in cooler years.

clusters but most ferments include 10-20% whole clusters.

This Cabernet Sauvignon has a wonderfully playful symbiotic relationship between Mayacama valley floor character and Vaca mountainous structure, culminating in more complex character and refined elegance than the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon. Some notable aromas on the bouquet include fresh roasted coffee, blackcurrant, crème de cassis, luxardo cherries, perfume, fresh violet petals, dark cherry liqueur, and hints of forest floor, sage, freshly cut cedar chips, with an intriguing musky nuance. Upon entering the palate, oodles of dark fruit, blackcurrant, cassis, fresh rose petals, water chestnuts, and subtle hints of licorice expand into a luscious, long-lasting espresso crème brûlée finish. The mesmerizing complexities between the balanced, full-body character interlaced with the structured yet velvety tannins may cause frisson with certain individuals. Proceed with delight!
