Starlite Vineyards is a boutique family-owned winery and estate located in Sonoma County’s famed Alexander Valley.  The vineyards are nestled on a hilltop close to the Russian River where proprietors, Arman and Rina Pahlavan along with their sons Spencer and Theodore, have produced wines that are artful expression of their lives.  With support from consulting winemakers, Merry Edwards and Julia Iantosca, the Pahlavans have created elegant yet delicate wines with the most impressionable flavors and bouquets.  Production level for the current vintage is 1200 cases of Zinfandel and 250 cases of Viognier. We strove to make wines with fruit-forward flavors, floral bouquets and elegance.  That is why we have some of the most aromatic and luscious wines in Alexander Valley.  Why make these wines and not the standard varietals?  Because we believe wine is about flavors, flowers and bouquets. Our Zinfandel marks all the characteristics of the greatest mount-watering varietals with soft tannins, rich fruit and ruby color.  The wine is elegant with expressive aromas and layers upon layers of luscious berries and black cherries.  On the palate, the fruit is integrated with soft tannins to create a smooth and silky texture.  The wine has a long and magical finish with hints of gentle spice. Our Viognier is aromatic and Condrieu in style.  It exudes scents of orange blossom and honeysuckle along with layers of apricot, peaches and nectarine.  The wine is deliciously ripe and fruitful, yet surprisingly dry and full-bodied with a luscious mouth-feel.  The finish is moderately long, refreshing and crisp with a burst of acidity. – Description from AlexJelena
