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.
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 Cabernet Franc is sourced from the Cypress Vineyard in Pope Valley, which is nestled high in the Vaca Mountain Range. The Western afternoon exposure produces thick skins with hearty tannins and bold fruit.
