Cabernet Sauvignon
Scherrer Vineyard, 2012
This is a unique and exotic expression of Alexander Valley benchland Cabernet Sauvignon. It was aged in small French oak cooperage for about thirty months, with infrequent racking. Bottled without fining or filtration to respect the expression of the site, this 100% varietal wine enjoys both a youthful suppleness and the structure necessary for lengthy storage.

Cabernet Sauvignon
Sonoma County, 2012
A few barrels from the Scherrer Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon harvest spoke neither of the individual site, or the appellation, but insisted on a place of their own. This harmonious wine with good varietal character should give substantial pleasure without significant bottle age — two to five years from the vintage should be sufficient.

Pinot Noir
King Family Vineyard, 2014
Planted in 1998 to the east of the Laguna de Santa Rosa on huichica soil, this vineyard consistently produces rich, dark–fruited Pinot Noirs. Owners Ben and Carla King see to it that it is farmed with a high degree of attention to detail, a necessary ingredient in successful Pinot Noir production. This wine should age and develop beautifully in bottle for five to eight years after the vintage.

Pinot Noir
Platt Vineyard, 2010
Joan and Lew Platt planted these vines for us to work with on their property overlooking the town of Bodega. A very cool site with intelligently selected plant material that is well farmed is a Pinot Noir maker’s dream. Red, black and blue fruit character with great structure, minerality and complexity are the result.

Pinot Noir
Russian River Valley, 2009
While grown primarily in the sandy Goldridge soil, which tends to produce Pinot Noir with flavors of red fruits and orange peel, this wine also illustrates some of the deep, brooding black cherry character generally found in the region’s clay soils. It was bottled without fining or filtration, and should age gracefully for a handful of years.

Syrah
‘Sasha,’ 2009
The more feminine of our two regional Syrah bottlings, we have chosen to call this ‘Sasha.’ It expresses more of the blueberry/white pepper side of the grape and can be served with foods that suit a larger-framed Pinot Noir. This variety also has a tendency to age well beyond one’s expectations based upon sheer size.

Syrah
Calypso Vineyard, 2012
My favorite syrahs tend to come from sites where the grapes may not be able to ripen to the same degree every vintage. Calypso Vineyard, perched in a slightly warmer, higher site inside this very cool area, is one of those. Its is farmed practically single–handedly by owner Otis Holt, and is truly a labor of love.

Pinot Noir
Sonoma County, 2007
Pinot Noir from Sonoma County varies in its expression according to where it is grown. This wine exhibits the sassafras character of coastal Pinot Noirs, as well as the cola of those from the area between Sebastopol and Santa Rosa. Moderately structured, it has a central core of red fruits and lightly toasty oak that anchor these coastal and inland elements. It should be at its best two to six years after the vintage.

Pinot Noir
Hallberg Vineyard, 2011
We would never be able to forgive ourselves if we didn’t set aside some Pinot Noir from this one single vineyard block and bottle it separately. Both complex and ‘sneaky,’ it possesses our favorite qualities of this variety and region. While seductive in the short term, it should age magnificently due to its balance and gently taut, structural core.
