Winter Release Wines

2015 Fog Catcher - ONYX and Case Club Members
30% Cabernet Sauvignon, 24% Malbec, 22% Petit Verdot, 14% Cabernet Franc, 5% Carmenere, 5% Merlot
We stashed enough of our coveted flagship blend away to include a single bottle in each ONYX and Case Club allocation this February. Please note that after this we will be completely sold out of the 2015 vintage and that this wine will not be available for reorder. Thank you very much for your support - the next vintage release will be in November! 

2016 Reserve Malbec, Heart Hill Vineyard
84% Malbec, 14% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2% Merlot
We farm a single block of Malbec on a southern facing slope of Heart Hill Vineyard. Usually, this block goes entirely to making Fog Catcher, but in exceptional years we dedicate the grapes to a small Reserve label bottling. The resulting wine is rich, inky and a delicious representation of Malbec from this site.   

2016 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon, Bootjack Ranch
100% Cabernet Sauvignon
Bootjack Ranch is home to a single block of our oldest vines of Cabernet Sauvignon. This wine is made entirely of fruit from that one block in the vineyard and is full of the bright red fruit and elegant cherry characteristics that we have come to expect and love from this site.   

2016 Reserve Grenache, Heart Hill Vineyard
89% Grenache, 11% Syrah
We farm just two blocks of Grenache at Heart Hill Vineyard. We fermented and aged this wine in a 300 gallon upright oak foudre and the result was captivating. This wine has beautiful texture, draping the silken fruit flavors that Grenache is heralded for over coarse tannins to create a remarkable inaugural Reserve Grenache release.

2016 Grenache 
99% Grenache, 1% Syrah
We farm a small amount of Grenache at Jespersen Ranch, our cool-climate vineyard in the Edna Valley. This wine is a wonderful contrast to our Grenache from Heart Hill Vineyard, offering up a completely different expression of the varietal. We fermented this wine in a small, open top fermentor with whole cluster and dried stems and aged it in all once-filled barrels to preserve the earthy, pepper flavor that complements the wine's natural acidity.

2017 Pinot Noir
100% pinot noir 
In 2017 we received our first grapes from some newer plantings at Jespersen Ranch and these new clones lent even more complexity to our single-vineyard Pinot Noir. We fermented this wine in open top tanks with some whole cluster and stem inclusion. The 2017 vintage is another exceptional Pinot Noir and sure to be an instant favorite. 

2016 Cabernet Franc
95% Cabernet Franc, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon
This wine is a blend of Cabernet Franc from our two vineyards in Paso Robles. Each site produces Cabernet Franc with slightly different characteristics, and blending them creates a perfect balance. Bootjack Ranch fruit adds cherry and bright red fruit qualities, and Heart Hill Vineyard adds color and dark fruit characteristics. 

2017 Chardonnay
100% Chardonnay
Jespersen Ranch is our cool-climate vineyard nestled into a hillside in the Edna Valley. The site's foggy mornings and coastal breezes create perfect growing conditions for Chardonnay. With 35% new French oak, this Chardonnay effortlessly balances aromatic fresh fruit with creamy notes and bright acidity. 

Wines Included in the "All White Wine" Allocations

2016 Reserve Chardonnay, Jespersen Ranch (ONYX White Only)
100% Chardonnay
This Reserve Chardonnay came from a single block of grapes at Jespersen Ranch and was the first pick of the vintage. We barrel-fermented this wine in 40% New French Oak and it developed beautifully with a rich palate redolent with notes of honeysuckle, toasted brioche and a salinity reminiscent of the vineyard's ocean proximity.  

2017 Reserve Grenache Blanc, Heart Hill Vineyard (onyx white only)
100% Grenache Blanc
We grow Grenache Blanc at the lowest elevation point of Heart Hill Vineyard and the 2017 vintage is a beautiful example of the varietal. We whole-cluster pressed the grapes for complexity and it spent 10 months in barrel. The resulting wine has high natural acidity with beautiful flavors of lemon-meringue and honey.  

2016 Reserve Silhouette du Coeur, Heart Hill Vineyard (ONYX white only)
49% Marsanne, 31% Roussanne, 20% Grenache Blanc
Silhouette du Coeur is our white blend sourced exclusively from Heart Hill Vineyard. The name translates from French to "Outline of the Heart" and pays homage to the fact that our Roussanne, Grenache Blanc and Marsanne grow on three edges of the vineyard. 

NV Club 9 White (estate white only)
45% Grenache Blanc, 42% Semillon, 10% Marsanne, 3% Sauvignon Blanc
This unique blend tells the tale of two vintages, 2014 and 2015. For the first time ever, we blended pieces of each vintage to create a blend that that was better than each vintage on its own. This rich white wine has a roundness on the palate outlined by lime-zest and fresh-squeezed lemon, transitioning into a lemon-meringue pie finish.
