2006 Chardonnay Carneros
Carneros

In the glass, this nuanced Carneros Chardonnay is a beautiful pale gold, offering inviting aromatics reminiscent of baked custard and lemon oil. On the palate the wine reveals bala ... morenced layers of apple and tropical fruit, accented by a hint of enticing cinnamon spice. The finish is clean, crisp and refreshing, inviting another sip. Though already drinking beautifully, this wine will only gain depth and texture with a few months in bottle.

2006 Rose Carneros
Carneros

This vibrant Vin Rosé displays enticing aromas of strawberry, watermelon, and ruby-red grapefruit, accentuated by a touch of orange zest.

Very dark garnet in color, this layered Carneros Pinot Noir reveals bright black cherry and sandalwood aromas, with a hint of allspice. Full-bodied, velvety and lush, the palate de ... morelivers all the ripe fruit promised by the nose, with just a touch of toasty vanilla oak to complete the package. Ending with a long, structured and satisfying finish, this wine should age delightfully, but why wait?

2004 Cabernet Sauvignon
Napa Valley

Displaying a beautiful dark garnet color, the bouquet of this Cabernet overflows with intense aromas of black currant, spice, and espresso. On the palate, this wine is full and ric ... moreh, delivering robust blackberry jam and dark chocolate layers, with almost no hint of the herbal quality that marks some Cabernet.

Syrah
Rate this wine

2003 Syrah, Wildcat Mountain Vineyard
Carneros

Aromas of milk chocolate, dried blueberry, and just a hint of clove. Black pepper comes through on the palate, along with a solid core of brambly blackberry fruit. There’s a touc ... moreh of stony minerality to the rich but tightly structured finish. Lovely now, but additional complexity should arise after several years in the cellar.

2001 Merlot Napa Valley
Carneros

The deep red color of the wine prepares me for this intensely aromatic and lush Merlot. Distinct, mouthwatering scents of cocoa, cassis and dried herbs clearly tie the wine to its ... moreorigins: the vineyards of the Carneros region. The fruit flavors are dense, and the tannins mature – byproducts of careful winemaking and an indication the wine will age well. I think of this as Old World style, a classic Right Bank Bordeaux blend reflecting Carneros terroir. A serious Merlot, the wine is rich, complex and lasting.

The 2001 Carneros Merlot has both substance and structure, a tasteful match for full-flavored lamb or wild duck dishes. I also confidently pair this rich wine with spicy, salty dishes such as Spaghetti alla Puttanesca.
