WE DON’T PICK FAVORITES.
BATCH #6, PINOT NOIR ROSE, CARNEROS, 2017
A wild vintage. The year began with abundant rainfall. A mild spring followed by a freak hail storm in June that near missed our vineyard. Two heat waves during the summer, a third one right after we harvested during Labor Day Weekend. Cool weather settled in until the wildfires ravaged the region starting October 8th.
BATCH #5, CABERNET SAUVIGNON, YOUNTVILLE, 2015
Batch #5 is a single vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon from an iconic Yountville Vineyard established in 1973. A vintage to be remembered for its high quality but significantly low yield (-40%), a result of a cool Spring season, a hot and dry summer. The quality of the fruit was outstanding although in limited supply, it is likely to be recognized as one of Napa Valley’s greatest.
BATCH #4, SAUVIGNON BLANC, Napa Valley, 2016
The Sauvignon Blanc is Batch #4, and bottled December 1st, 2017. Batch #4 Was awarded the Bronze Medal at The 2018 London Wine Competition. This is a 100% Sauvignon Blanc from a certified organic single vineyard in the cool sub appellation of Lovall Valley, one of the best kept secret AVA's in Napa Valley. Our Sauvignon Blanc is 100% clone 376 (French Entav clone).
BATCH #3, PINOT NOIR ROSE, CARNEROS, 2016
Batch #3 of Pinot Noir Rosé from Carneros, Napa Valley was made in 2016.
BATCH #2, CABERNET SAUVIGNON, Napa Valley, 2014
Batch #2 is a Cabernet Sauvignon blend of 6 hand selected barrels, from some of the most iconic wineries in Napa Valley. Aged for 3 years in oak and bottled February 24th 2017, our vision was to create a Napa Cab that captures the true essence of the year 2014.
BATCH #1, CHARDONNAY, 2013
The First Vice. A 100% chardonnay that was aged in oak barrels for 36 months.
Only a few wineries in the world have released a Chardonnay that has aged this long, but we believe that the craftsmanship of such quality wine requires patience.
The wine was from 21 hand selected barrels representing the best appellations of both Sonoma County (75%) and Napa Valley (25%).
