October Releases

 

2018 Reserve Chardonnay

2018 Reserve Chardonnay, Jespersen Ranch

included in onyx mixed and onyx white shipments

Barrel-fermented in 40% New French Oak, this wine has developed beautifully. 100% of the wine went through malolactic fermentation and was aged on the lees for 18 months. Although we aged the bottles for an additional 8 months prior to release, we expect this wine to develop even more over the next 1-3 years and encourage you to add this to your cellar if you’re looking for a Chardonnay to enjoy later in its life.

2018 Syrah, Edna Valley

2018 Syrah

Included in estate red, estate mixed, reserve and custom case shipments

Jespersen Ranch Syrah has a remarkable, site specific personality. This vintage shows off a combination of candied raspberry, pepper and floral notes and a beautifully deep color. We hand-harvested the grapes and fermented them in stainless steel tanks, leaving 10% of the fruit whole-cluster. Fermentation lasted 20 days, and we then transferred the wine to French Oak barrels for 21 months of aging. If drinking this wine within the first few years of its release, we recommend decanting for two hours prior to enjoying.

2019 Sangiovese

2019 Sangiovese

included in estate red, estate mixed, onyx red, onyx mixed and custom case shipments

This vintage is a fresh and bright expression of Sangiovese. We co-fermented the grapes with Barbera, and it’s bright fruit flavors are a natural complement to Sangiovese’s drying tannins. We foot-stomped the grapes and aged them 10 months in oak barrels before aging. The wine has aromatics of caramel vanilla, cranberry and dried rose petals, with cocoa powder tannins and crystalline acidity. We recommend simply opening this bottle to enjoy it (no decanting required) with the option to serve it slightly chilled.

2018 Malbec

2018 Malbec

included in estate red, estate mixed, reserve, onyx red, onyx mixed and custom case shipments

The 2018 Malbec is rich, with deep blackberry and cassis flavors and plush tannins. We hand-harvested the grapes and fermented them in stainless steel tanks. After 16 days, we pressed the wine and transferred it to French oak barrels for aging. A quarter of the barrels were new, lending structure and toasty aromas to the ample fruit flavors of Malbec. If drinking this wine within the first few years of its release, we recommend decanting this bottle for two hours prior to enjoying.

2018 Reserve Syrah, Heart Hill Vineyard

2018 Reserve Syrah, Heart Hill Vineyard

included in reserve, onyx red, onyx mixed and custom case shipments

Heart Hill Vineyard Syrah is revered for its beautiful dark fruit flavors, layered complexity and powerful tannins. We fermented the grapes in small, stainless steel tanks and half went through native fermentation. We transferred 100% free run juice, admired for its pure and powerful flavors, and aged the wine in French Oak barrels for 19 months. The 2018 vintage has flavors of black cherry, mulling spices and caramelized oak. If drinking this wine within the first few years of its release, we recommend decanting for four hours prior to enjoying. 

$65 / $52 Estate / $48.75 ONYX & Custom Case 



 

 

2018 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon, Heart Hill Vineyard

2018 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon, Heart Hill Vineyard

included in onyx red, onyx mixed and custom case shipments

The cool, late growing season of 2018 provided us with a stunning expression of Heart Hill Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon. It’s rich, textured and powerful - resonant with full-bodied flavors of dark blackberry flavors and brushy herbal undertones. We hand-harvested grapes from three of our premiere blocks at Heart Hill Vineyard and fermented them in stainless steel tanks. We selected our highest quality French Oak barrels and aged the wine for 26 months. This is a wine built to age, and if you plan to drink it within the first few years of its release, we recommend decanting for four+ hours prior to enjoying.

2018 Fog Catcher

2018 FOG CATCHER

included in Onyx Red, Onyx Mixed and Custom Case shipments

Fog Catcher is our flagship estate Bordeaux blend. It is named for the cool, grey banks of fog that drift over our vineyards in the early morning, and the 2018 vintage is a blend of 43% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Petit Verdot, 20% Cabernet Franc, 10% Malbec & 5% Carménère. We hand-harvested and fermented each varietal independently and allowed them to age in barrel for 16 months. After they had matured, we tasted each and selected the top tier barrels. To qualify, each variety must show luxurious texture, power and finessed flavors. The final blend was composed and returned to French Oak barrels to age an additional year, for a total of 26 months. We then allow the wine to rest in bottle for an additional year before we release it. If you plan to drink it within the first few years of its release, we recommend decanting for four+ hours prior to enjoying it.
