Estate Rhône Varietals
We aim to produce a Grenache that stands out as bright and juicy, but also with ample complexity. The 2010 Grenache opens with vibrant aromas of cherry, raspberry, strawberry, cola and spicy vanilla. The texture is smooth and rounded, offering mouthfilling flavors of plum and cherry with a suggestion of coffee. Notes of strawberry and spice return on a juicy, balanced finish.
Our aim is to produce a Viognier that honors the varietal’s rich, floral character while showcasing a clean structure that is reflective of our estate vineyard. The 2012 vintage greets the nose with abundant aromas of fresh citrus, stone fruit, jasmine and honeycomb. A beautifully weighted palate offers lush, viscous flavors of peach, apricot, pear and lime zest. Sleek, steely acidity brings crisp balance to the finish.
The 2011 Roussanne begins with luscious aromas of fresh honey, beeswax, pineapple and papaya. The palate is clean yet rounded, offering luscious stone fruit flavors with notes of citrus and mineral. Fine acidity lingers on a long, quenching finish.
