About Our Wines

2013 Chardonnay

Origin: Atlas Peak District, Napa Valley, Antinori Napa Valley Family Estate named Antica Napa Valley.

Alcohol: 14.5%

Grapes: 100% Chardonnay

Production: 57 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: Aromas of stony minerality awaken the senses with this striking Chardonnay. This wine is well defined and absolutely ethereal.  You’ll revel in the citrus blossom, spiced Asian pear, lemon grass and hints of saline that meld with a bright level of acidity and glide gracefully across the palate.  Gorgeous underlying oak nuances are subtle and beautifully integrated; stunning! Ellen Landis, CS, CSW

Alcohol: 13.8%

Grapes: 100% Pinot Noir, clones 777, 677, 115

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: The brilliant, pinkish-red jewel tone of this lively wine catches the eye, and intoxicating aromas of mushrooms and damp earth leave no question Pinot Noir awaits in the glass.  The earthiness is mirrored on the palate, interlacing with juicy raspberry, red cherry, and strawberry fruit, tinges of tea spice, and cola.  It's nicely balanced with a touch of oak well positioned in the background.  Refinement and finesse characterize this elegant Pinot Noir. Ellen Landis, CS, CSW

Tasting Notes: This vibrant, leaner style Zinfandel displays classic Dry Creek Valley fruit and spice on the nose.  Unveiled on the palate are appealing flavors of juicy raspberries, tart cranberries and brambly marionberries accented by a fine dusting of crushed herbs and savory spice. Precise and spirited with rockin' acidity from start to streamlined finish. - Ellen Landis, CS, CSW
