Winemaker Notes: This white blend is a pale straw color in the glass. Aromas of overripe fruits such as peach, apple and orange jump from the glass. Light flower notes and a hint of spice can be found on the nose as well. The acid up front is balanced by a slight sweetness on the back end.

2016 Chardonnay

*Silver Medal 2018 - El Dorado County Wine Competition​

Winemaker Notes: This Chardonnay starts with a nose of baked apple and pear, followed by notes of mango, nutmeg and cinnamon, and a touch of buttered brioche from the oak. On the palate it is complex, same fruit and spice notes from the nose with a creamy mouthfeel and a slight acidity that leaves you longing for another taste.

2016 Coquette - Estate

Winemaker Notes: Our 2016 Coquette is a fun, flirty Muscat blend. Golden in color, it has loads of overripe fruits – apricots, peaches, pears and red apples. Slight hints of tangerine, lilies and spice come through as well. Sweet, but with enough acidity to balance it pleasantly.

Citrus notes follow on the palate, accompanied by green grassy notes and hints of fresh herbs opening up to jalapeno. The finish is long yet clean, and very refreshing.

2016 White Hermit - Estate

It has a delicate complexity with lots of flavor nuances.

2016 Ponderosé – Estate

2016 Rosé 

Retail $20 Wine Club $16

Winemaker Notes: A light pinkish/orange, almost salmon color in the glass. This Barbera/Cabernet Sauvignon/Cabernet Franc rosé starts with hints of orange peel and strawberry on the nose. The palate shows tastes of orange marmalade and rose petal. A slight weightiness and good mouthfeel on the palate lead into a clean, refreshing finish.

This Syrah-dominated blend of six different grape varietals demonstrates why blending is such a big trend in the California wine industry.
