Smoky notes rise from the glass opening to dark cherry, strawberry
and cocoa powder with a hint of subtle baking spice. There is a luscious blast of black
cherry on the palate, with oak notes and pleasing mouthfeel. Herb and oak
show midway through the palate and carry through to the smooth finish.
Carneros Ranch Chardonnay has bright apple, honey and stone fruit flavors with vibrant acidity and ample toast and spice from new French oak. Aging on sur-lie adds notes of baked bread in the nose as well as suppleness to the palate.
Our 2018 Vermentino has an inviting aromatic profile, with apple, flower, ripe melon, and citrus notes. On the palate, the citrus and green apple flavors are crisp and bright, yet soft, supple, with a hint of minerality.
