Matanzas Creek Sonoma County Sauvignon Blanc

2018 was larger than life. Characterized by a long and cooler growing season, the vineyards matured to perfection. Diligent vineyard practices, such as leaving more leaves to protect the clusters on warmer days, creates a huge difference in the finished wines. Overall, temperatures were mild and facilitated slower, longer ripening resulting in high density of flavors and aromas while maintaining outstanding natural acidity.

Cambria Estate Cambria Katherine's Vineyard Chardonnay

Katherine’s Vineyard Chardonnay is an ocean influenced, single vineyard expression of “refrigerated sunshine” in a glass – layered, elegant, distinct. Fresh granny smith apples, floral and spice aromas dominate the nose; pink grapefruit, tangerine, citrus blossom, and apple pie flavors are balanced by a bit of wet stone. The oak influence creates a nice mid-palate, yet the wine still shows a balanced acidity that carries through the long finish. Chardonnay is one of the most celebrated white wines in Santa Barbara County, California.

Hartford Court Pinot Noir, Russian River Valley

The 2017 Hartford Court Russian River Valley Pinot Noir comes from a collection of small vineyards located throughout the Russian River Valley AVA. These vineyards are a combination of our Estate properties such as Barbieri, Bellflower, Fog Dance, Hailey’s Block, Jennifer’s, MacLean’s Block and Arrendell as well as a handful of our neighbors’ vineyards located in the heart of the Russian River Valley. The sites express the essence of the Russian River Valley by showcasing the best of the neighborhoods within our AVA: Green Valley – Keen acidity, spice, red fruits, blood orange; Laguna Ridge – Dark berry and cherry aromas and flavors, subtle loamy character; Sebastopol Hills – Dark color, purple flowers, Indian spices and precise mouth feel; and Santa Rosa Plains – Deep red and black cherry, fruit focused with supple tannins. Each neighborhood contributes complexity and character to the final blend.

Mt. Brave Mt. Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon

We hand-harvested grapes into lug boxes during cool morning hours, at an average Brix of 25°. The wine was fermented in stainless steel and then underwent native malolactic fermentation in barrels to round acidity and softly integrate the vanillin character of French oak (91% new). After barrel aging for 19 months, the wine was bottled without fining or filtration.
