2014 Sauvignon Blanc, Dry Creek, Andrews Vineyard -- $28

The 2014 Sauvignon Blanc is one of the most aromatic wines we have ever made. Jasmine floral notes jump out of the glass which is matched by kiwi, mango and other tropical fruit. Hints of orange rind and spring rain are also present. The palate is round for Sauvignon Blanc, and flavors of passion fruit and soapstone come through immediately. Great acidity is present, and the long finish is an amalgamation of tropical fruit. This is a bright lively wine meant to be enjoyed chilled in its youth.  

    2013 Chardonnay Sangiacomo Vineyard Carneros -- $35

    The 2013 Chardonnay from the Sangiacomo Vineyard is a beautiful light gold shade. The nose is explosive with fresh pear, peach blossom and honeysuckle. As usual for this wine there is an underlying spiciness, in particular nutmeg. The palate is lush and round with richer notes of honeycomb, toffee and candy apple. The remaining malic acid (only 17% went to lactic) provides plenty of acidity to balance this rich wine. Although lively and fresh in its youth this wine will age wonderfully over the next 4-5 years (2018-2019).  

      2013 Chardonnay Savoy Vineyard Anderson Valley -- $42

      This riper vintage of Savoy Chardonnay brings out some big pear, red apple and blooming tulips on the nose.  Lemon custard, white pepper and soapstone minerality are also present. The palette begins with a soft lushness, and continues with flavors of caramel apple, cinnamon toast and limeade. There is some very firm acidity on this wine, which lends itself to age. Bright and fresher in its youth, it will develop some wonderful elements over the next 5-6 years (2018-2019). 

        2013 Pinot Noir Savoy Vineyard Anderson Valley -- $55

        This dark ruby Pinot is layered in complexity. Fresh concentrated black cherry is matched by red currant. Jasmine, cinnamon, vanilla and licorice complement the fruit. Soft lushness starts the palette off; continuing is more vivacious red fruit as well as pepper spice and pencil lead. The tannins are structured this year, with moderate acid. This complex wine will only develop more layers over the next 7-8 years (2020-2021).

          2012 Cabernet Sauvignon, Spring Mountain District -- $75

          The 2012 Spring Mountain Cabernet jumps from the glass. Immense amounts of aromatics are extremely prevalent upon pouring. Giant amounts of blackberry, ripe fig, violet perfume and plum are surrounded by creamed coffee, cedar and allspice. The mouth feel is velvety, and rich. Black currants, mocha and pepper flavors take over on the palate. The tannins are definitely present in a round chalkier form, where very firm mountain acidity aids to balance them out. Although extremely aromatic already, this stunning wine will age beautifully over the next 14-15 years.
