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 blend 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 for this vintage and the resulting fermentation ran for 8 days with mechanical punch down, pressing directly to barrel down with malo-lactic completing in the barrel.
1,400 feet... this wine is pretty lofty grown at 1/4 mile high! This vintage is lovely - Again - Rich, dense, dark, ripe, cherry, earthy and soft silky-robust tannins invite your to another taste one after another. Our 2015 Howell Mountain Cabernet barreled down in 75% new French Oak barrels for 20 months and then bottled. Share a bottle of this wine with your favorite wine lover! ~Nancy
Our 2015 Carignane continues its heritage as a real wine lover's wine. It's made from old vine Carignane in Oak Valley, located along the very northern rim of the Alexander Valley. This grape is usually the last 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
OUR PINK POSY is sourced from 35% Pinot Noir-Russian River Valley + 25% Zinfandel- Russian River Valley + 15% Carignane-Alexander Valley + 12.5% Syrah- Russian River Valley and 12.5% Petite Sirah- Dry Creek Valley this year and packs aromas of floral-strawberry-kiwi, cherry-pomegranate, key-lime, guava-pineapple and a juicy-pear! PINK POSY is my thirst quencher go to and is certainly going to be your favorite also. We sell this only in 1.5L bottles because it goes down so quickly!

Gooseberry, Guava, Pineapple, Floral, juicy pear, fresh cut apple and fresh cut melon. Grown in the cold left edge of Sonoma County in ancient Redwood Forest and old Apple Orchards, this is a lovely vineyard tucked up next to the Dutton Shop and is appropriately called the Shop Block - what else? It is the Musque clone of sauvignon blanc grape and tends towards floral and guava aromas year after year.

1,400 feet... remember that number... I love making Cabernet from Howell Mountain... and one taste of this wine will make you understand why. Rich, dense, dark, ripe, cherry, earthy and soft silky-robust tannins invite you to another taste one after another.

We finally made a few more cases of this elegant wine. Thank you to our grower Art Ibleto! Aromas of Cherry Pie, creme brulee, buttercream, pie dough, cherry tart, caramel, tar, dried grass, herbs, crushed earth, cherry liquor, rose petals; with flavors of ripe red fruit, red licorice and cotton candy, toasted oak, cola, smooth finish. I like to pair this with Ghirardelli Dark Chocolate with Sea Salt Caramel. The lovely match brings out the Cherry in the wine. Sante! 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. We have only 100 cases in barrel and are making it available now.
