The grapes for this wine come from various cool climates in California suchas the Clarksburg Delta area near Sacramento known for its cool afternoon breezes from the San Francisco Bay which moderate the warm days allowing for ample sun light into the canopy by day and a cooling off period well before sundown. We pick the grapes when very ripe. When fully developed, we pick the grapes in the morning when the vineyard is cool and the grapes are cold. This makes it a little challenging to sort them at 7am on the crush pad, but worth the effort.

The aromas are very floral and aromatic with rose petal and jasmine notes followed by mango and melon. On the palate the wine has a dry entry with lemon and key lime citrus which expands into lychee and Japanese melon. The finish displays subtle clove and snappy, juicy citron lemon.
Pale flinty stone colored with notes of key lime and Meyer lemon zest and verbena. The wine transitions from citrus to melon with a little spice. The mid palate is juicy with generous but integrated acidity. The finish is mouth filling with honeydew, clover honey and juicy pink grapefruit sections and ripe Bartlett pears.
Pale gold color with perfumed Chardonnay varietal character with lemon tart, wax, clove and honeycomb. The palate is ripe with green apple and some baked apple flavors as well. On the palate the wine has juicy tangerine flavors with kiwi and passion fruit. Soft creamy lactic acid tones texture the mid palate through to the finish and expose apricot flesh and finish dry with slightly bitter, but juicy apple seed.
Medium garnet color with pretty ripe cherry notes and classic Pinot Noir aromatics. The palate is generous with creamy vanilla and French oak flavors which envelope the silky cherries elegantly. This silky little Pinot then coats the tongue with smooth crushed, ripe raspberry flavors and textures and finishes dry again with ripe bing cherry and subtle clove flavors.
