This Sauvignon Blanc possesses notes of grapefruit, citrus pith, and Granny Smith apple. The flavor is crisp and lean, with a zippy, citrus finish. Chilled, this wine is a perfect pairing with oysters on the half shell or a seafood salad.
Our winemaker, Eric Lyman, chose to produce this Chardonnay in the Chablis style, unoaked and vinified in stainless steel tanks. This process produces racy, green apple acidity and gives it versatility in pairing with different foods.
Aromas of green caramel apple and pear preserve continue as flavors onto the palate and are accented by baking spice notes at first sip. Flavors of spiced apple and creme brulee unfold into the lengthy finish.
Our 2015 Viognier is full of the floral aromas and stonefruit flavors that make this varietal one of our favorites. In contrast to previous vintages that spent time in stainless steel, this year's vintage was 100% barrel fermented and aged exclusively in neutral French oak barrels. The result is a bright and fruity wine with satisfying palate-weight and a textured mouthfeel. If you've enjoyed our past offerings, you'll love this Viognier!
The Lodi AVA is home to the Cranston Brothers, who own and farm about 400 acres of grapes in Acampo along the Mokelumne River, just north of the town of Lodi. The well-drained, sandy loam soils of the nearly 80 year-old Cranston vineyard provide consistently delicious fruit with an intensity of varietal character and silky texture.
Our 2013 Reserve Syrah is rich and complex with a long finish of cola, mocha, and a hint of earthiness. The up-front aroma of plum balances beautifully with the acid and tannin. These factors have resulted in a full-bodied wine with intense structure and flavor.
Our Petite Sirah is always a favorite among visitors to our tasting room. We allow for extended time in bottle prior to release to ensure that this wine is beautifully integrated by the time of release.
