This exceptional vintage, although more delicate than previous years, showcases the distinct structure and characters inherent to Pinot Noir. The resulting wine is a pale, pink color with ethereal aromas of pink lady apples and roses. The palette offers lively, expansive flavors of strawberry and cherries. This wine is thirst-quenching and will be a must have at all your summer gatherings
Bright, crisp and refreshing the 2016 Sauvignon Blanc is expressive with citrus, notes of grapefruit rind, key lime, and fresh basil. The richness of flint minerals, lemongrass and passion fruit on your palate created from the concrete egg fermentation is perfect for all Cultivar Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc lovers. A perfect match for garden salads, heirloom tomatoes with burrata cheese and grilled fish.
The 2014 Cultivar Rutherford Sauvignon Blanc is a rich and classic Sauvignon Blanc to which our winemaker Julien Fayard brings a touch of great white Bordeaux characteristics. It is characterized by steely, green citric notes, gooseberry fruit, a grassy and herbaceous notes. The neutral oak adds a depth and richness that is beautiful on the palate.
Our 2013 Oak Knoll Chardonnay is a pure expression of Chardonnay. This Chardonnay delivers fruit on the nose and on the palate taking one back to an age where fresh pies were set on window sills to cool. On the nose, the Chardonnay has baked apples, pear and melon notes with nuances of spice and flower aromas. On the palate, the wine has beautiful weight and balance, fermented in neutral oak barrels to add just a touch of richness on the palate.
