Our 2015 Lancel Creek Pinot Noir has aromas of light cherry, deep spice, pomegranate, plum and toasted oak. Long, smooth tannins and bright acid combine with deep flavors of baked boysenberry and blackberry, black currant, cola and black cherry. The abundance of spicy structure, smooth tannins, and great acid make for a beautiful combination with the brambly dark fruit. This wine is showing so well right now. We recommend drinking it anytime in the next five years.
Featuring aromas of honeysuckle flower, toasted almond, citrus and pineapple.
With a full palette of bright citrus, orchard fruit - Asian pear and peach, and a hint of toasted oak. A Chardonnay that is full bodied and refreshing all at once, capable of pairing with a wide range of foods and flavors.
Our 2016 Chardonnay comes from the Stuhlmuller Ranch in the Southwest corner of Alexander Valley. This old Chardonnay vineyard is tucked into the hills where the valley ends and the Russian River turns west towards Healdsburg. A mix of Old Barn and number 4 clone, the vines benefit from the hot afternoons and cool nights along the river.
Total production of this Chardonnay was two hundred cases. All barrel fermented with fifty percent ML. 25% new oak
