Every single drop of this precious wine is so delicious and concentrated, smooth and pleasing to the pallet! Each person that tastes this wine comments on how much they love this varietal.

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.

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.
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
