 2017 Chardonnay

17 Chard

Origin: Atlas Peak District, Napa Valley, Antinori Napa Valley Family Estate, five clone block 

Alcohol: 13.4%

Grapes: 100% Chardonnay

Production: 53 cases

Vineyard: Chardonnay grapes are from the Reserve vineyard, ten acres in size. The vineyard is planted at an elevation of 1420 feet, in the volcanic soil series Aiken Loam. It is planted at a vine density of 1815 vines per acre and divided equally among five distinct Chardonnay clones that contribute to the wine's complexity through the clonal diversity. Clones Dijon 96, Dijon 76 and Weimer Burgundian Selection provide for the complexity in flavors while clones Prosser 15 and Martini 4 provide the natural acidity that brings balance and a mineral character to the wine.

Tasting notes: The charismatic aromas of butterscotch and apple blossom lead the way with this dazzling Chardonnay.  Fanning out beautifully on the palate are layers of baked apple, salted caramel, creamy pear, minerality and nutmeg spice. Toffee notes from nicely integrated oak contribute a complementary backdrop.  Brisk acidity balances the lush fruit, and a lively citrus accent brightens the lip-smacking finale. Ellen Landis, CS, CSW

Vineyard: Located on the Eastern "bench" of the Dry Creek Valley this vineyard consists almost entirely of 40+ year old vines, some of which are head trained.  This 25 acre property has been dry farmed by the Teldeschi Family for three generations and produces consistently high quality fruit which is used by the family winery as well as sold to other wineries throughout the valley.
 
Tasting Notes:  An enlivening, perfumed aroma leads the way to forest berries and spice on entry.   There is a nice rustic character on the palate.  Rubyqueen plums, savory notes, candied raspberries, blueberries, a hint of cloves and a twist of black peppercorns meld in harmony. Smoothly textured and juicy, with just the right touch of oak adding complexity. - Ellen Landis, CS, CSW

2015 Syrah

Origin: Atlas Peak District, Napa Valley, Antinori Napa Valley Family Estate15 Srh

Alcohol: 13.9%
 
Grapes:  100% Syrah
 
Production: 58 cases

Vineyard:  Located on a high plain in the eastern mountains of the celebrated Napa Valley because of its breathtaking location; its rocky soils, high elevations and beautiful landscape. The hilly terrain is above all, ideal wine growing country.

Tasting notes:  A rich fragrance of grilled meat and black fruits set the stage for this intensely flavored, powerfully structured Syrah.  Distinctive layers of wild forest blackberries, pungent spice, a touch of smoke, and ideally ripe black plums frame a firm backbone of tannins.  The mouth feel is luxurious and the balance is meticulous.  I envision a long life ahead for this beauty, if you have the patience to wait.  Best bet is to buy some to drink now, and more to enjoy later! Ellen Landis, CS, CSW
