2017 Vintage Notes

Mother Nature delivered a concentrated harvest and our talented team worked tirelessly to bring in the fruit at peak quality. These wines are inspired by our desire to capture the essence of many of California's best vineyards for Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. This quest is a key force behind the wines included in every offering, and each year we strive to produce exemplary representations of vintage and terroir. 

Thank you for continuing this journey with us. It is our pleasure to share our passion with you.
