A beautiful Chenin, among the best in California. Although it is dry, as the name suggests, and very crisp in acidity, it's so fruity it almost tastes off-dry. The flavors are of green apples, lemons, limes and pineapples. Great as an alternative to Sauvignon Blanc or Pinot Grigio. S.H. ** SOLD OUT **

The 2009 vintage will be remembered as one of the best in the past decade. This Cabernet Sauvignon displays elegant aromas of cherry and red raspberry along with sage and dried flowers. On the palate, the wine is extremely well balanced with silky tannins that carefully weave together the earthy, dusty nuances of this Bordeaux-esque wine. With some airing, the wine flushes out providing even more dimension and depth. The finish lingers with fine tannins that are very elegant and structured. - WineryBLEND:86% Cabernet Sauvignon4% Merlot4% Cabernet Franc3% Malbec3% Petit VerdotBARREL AGING: 20 months in French, American and Hungarian oak;30% new oakpH: 3.76TA: .58g/100mLAlc: 13.5% ** SOLD OUT **

Winemaker's Notes:

At first swirl, a beautiful golden color shines through, then pleasing aromas of orange blossom, lemon peel, and zesty citrus nuances emerge. On the palate, the wine is refreshing and lively with a wonderful balance of citrus elements and tangy sweet fruit that play perfectly together. The finish is clean and well integrated, leaving mouthwatering fruit flavors on the back of the palate. This is a wine that truly begs for another sip!
