Winemaker Notes:

With enticing aromas of apple blossoms, buttery brioche and white peach, our slightly floral Chardonnay integrates classic oak nuances of vanilla, clove and hazelnut with a luscious, creamy texture that lingers on the tongue. Notes of melon, citrus and Honeysuckle further add to the complexity of this full bodied Central Coast Wine, which finishes with alluring richness that keep you coming back for more. A great match with white meats and cream-based foods, this Chardonnay is sure to please with or without food.


Production Method:

The grapes entered the winery as cold as possible to preserve quality by being harvested at night. They were then gently whole cluster pressed, allowed the juice to settle for one day then racked, separating the juice from the solids. The juice was naturally fermented and racked when fermentation reached a dry level. The wine was then cellared in topped vessels before bottling.

Winemaker Notes:

Our Paso Robles Cabernet Sauvignon is a powerful example of Cabernet from California, leading with aromas of bramble fruit, cassis and vanilla. On the palate, ripe dark fruit flavors are accented by hints of toasted oak and subtle savory notes. Balanced tannins and full-bodied structure add to the pleasurable mouth-feel, further enhanced by the wine’s long, lingering finish. An all-around great choice for charcuterie of hearty foods like grilled burgers and prime rib, this rich, fruit-forward wine proves that Cabernet is the king of California.


Production Method:

The grapes entered the winery as cold as possible to preserve quality by being harvested at night. The grapes were destemmed and gently moved to tank, where the grapes and juice were allowed to 'cold-soak' to develop balanced tannic structure. The grapes were naturally fermented and pressed off when sugar levels went dry. The wine was cellared in topped up vessels for 12 months before bottling.
