I L-O-V-E Monterey Pinot Noir! This wine is my favorite to drink at home. Our 2014 Pinot Noir, Monterey has dried cherry pit, red cranberry fruit, earthy-moist-loam,raspberries, dried herbs and tar combine with leafy and earthy vine flavors. Subtle butterscotch, vanilla and cotton candy aromas and flavors combine with all this fruit to make a wonderful sip. This well-balanced, elegant wine has a long delightful finish. The grapes are picked at optimum ripeness, 25.7 brix this vintage and the resulting fermentations ran for 8 days with mechanical punch down, pressing directly to barrel down with malo-lactic comleteing in the barrel.
Our 2015 Carignane continues its heritage as a real wine lover's wine. It's made from old vine carignane in Oat Valley, along the very northern rim of the Alexander Valley. This is usually the last grape to be harvested every year and well worth the wait! My favorite wine to drink at home. Take a bottle home with you and you will agree! - Nancy

Nancy has made another blockbuster port. It is Dark-Dense-Delicious with flavors of blackberry, cassis and blueberries complemented with notes of dark milk chocolate, this is sweet and viscous in the mouth, blanketing the palate with a fine, velvety tannin.

Lovely! Old vine Carignane grown in the very far north of Alexander Valley. It's sits in an area called Oat Valley - just north of Cloverdale. These are a very old planting of Carignane - head pruned and interplanted with petite sirah, zinfandel, and grenache. It takes quite a while for the carignane vines to ripen and by then all the other vines have turned to raisins. The carignane ripens just about the time the mighty cabernet sauvignon flexes its muscles in the valley - and boy are they different!! This 2014 Carignane is bright rhubarb-Cherry fruit with tons of butterscotch, vanilla, and maple syrup influence from the sexy french oak barrels it marinaded in for the last 15 months!! Try a taste and you will be hooked just like Mickey Friend and Lulu!! Salute!! -Nancy
