2014 Pinot Noir Trenton Estate Available: In Stock $73.00
Fairly dark color for pinot noir. Typical aromas of complex dark red fruit intermingled with oriental spice (cardamom, cinnamon, clove, nutmeg) with a bit of forest floor/underbrush/bramble. A big yet not overly extracted, ripe wine. Bracing ripe, smooth tannins and near perfect acidity argue for a long life.

2015 Pinot Noir Trenton Estate Vineyard Available: In Stock $72.00

Sometimes a year comes along that just does not fit the mold. A committed terroirist prizes a sense of place and often feels a wine is not "proper" if it does not exhibit that. But once in a while, a wine can be so utterly delicious that this short coming is overlooked. Many of the 2015 Russian River Valley Pinot Noirs are in this category. Rich, full, and delicious now, but not really representative of the Russian River Valley to me. My belief is that the sense of place will show in time, but right now, it is overshadowed by the sheer voluptuousness of the vintage.

Gorgeous aromas of red berries and cherries with a slight hind of mint. In the mouth, it is amazingly lush, with just enough acid to brighten it. Silky and full, the finish is long and smooth. I predict a bright future for this wine, but it hard to resist!

2016 Chardonnay Trenton Estate Available: In Stock $55.00

Our Estate vineyard, with vines planted in 1969 and a few years later, has always produced very singular wines. Some, such as the 1975 and 1977, are not only alive but still beautiful wines. In many years, however, the wines were awkward and clumsy in their youth. When Joe Swan did his annual wine evaluation dinners, he would often proclaim, upon tasting the most current wine, that it was time to rip out the chardonnay. However, when he tasted the prior years wine he would decide that on second thought, the wine was too good to do that! Things haven't changed much in the ensuing years. A year ago I tasted the wine and thought that it didn't have a future. It was closed and awkeard. This month though, tasting an open bottle over several days, I was reminded how special these vines truly are, producing in good years just over 1 barrel of incredibly complex and unique wine. Perhaps it is the vines age, the small berried, small clustered selection of chardonnay, the incredibly long time between fruit set and harvest or maybe just the spot of ground on which they are planted, but whatever the reason I have never encountered fruit quite like this.

Tasting notes:

At first sniff the aroma might be mistaken for oxidation. Grilled almonds, creme brûlee, and maybe reisling like petrol notes come to mind, but the color, straw with a hint of green, belies that notion. Along with these aromas there is an abundance of rich fruit, more stone fruit than the typical tropical or apple aromas you might expect. In the mouth it is very rich and powerful but with a mouthwatering edge of acidity. I think that this wine is magical but if you are looking for main-stream chardonnay sameness, this might not by your wine.

2014 Pinot Noir Solas Vineyard Available: In Stock $45.00

From the steep hillside planting just to the south of our Estate vineyard. A blend of Swan and Calera selections. Our first vintage from Solas vineyard, 2014, showcases the typical Russian River Valley acidity and bright red fruit characters.

Medium ruby color. Potpouri of red fruits and spice. Medium bodied, medium tannins, excellent acidity. Lush and long. Drinking well now and will appreciate with age.

2016 Pinot Noir DNA Available: In Stock $45.00

DNA vineyard is one of the four contiguous vineyards here in Trenton that we source pinot noir from (Trenton Estate, Trenton View, and Solas being the others). All exhibit the characteristics of the Laguna Ridge Neighborhood in their lush middle richness, great acidity, dark red fruit and elements of oriental spice, but each has their own unique personality.

Tasting notes:

Dark red cherries, cardamom, rose petal and fresh forest floor. It is a bit plush, with the acidity being less predominate than its neighbors. A soft yet long finish is balanced by a bit of tannin. It is drinking very well now but should continue to drink well for the next 3-5 years.

2016 Pinot Noir Saralee's Available: In Stock $45.00

The wine is typically floral and red fruited but this year it is darker and denser, verging on dark cherries and berries. It is also richer and denser in the mouth with more tannin than we usually see, a characteristic that all of our 2016's seem to have in common. Of all of the Saralee's pinot noirs to date, this is probably the most unctuous to date. (I have been wanting to use that word for awhile now!).

2015 Chardonnay Ritchie Vineyard Available: In Stock $45.00

The grapes that make this wine comes from one of the older blocks in this vineyard. The original plantings were 100% barrel fermented in French oak, aged sur lies with battonage (lees stirring) once a month. Full malolactic fermentation took place. The wine was aged 10 months in Barrel.

The vineyard is highly coveted with numerous winemakers sourcing from here. Everyone gets their own dedicated row (or half as the case may be). However, not all Ritchie Vineyard wines are created equal. Throw in personal preferences with at least one winery picking 2 weeks ahead of everyone else and a couple wineries on the other end of the spectrum. Leads to some very diverse wines. We fall somewhere in the middle.

Bright lemon yellow color. Ripe pear with lemon custard and a hint of mango. Classic Ritchie profile and aromatics are present. Very rich, very full opulence balanced by good acidity. Long, full fruit.

2014 Syrah Solas Vineyard Available: In Stock $38.00
Our first vintage from Solas Vineyard, a neighboring vineyard on Vine Hill School Road, also known as Walker Vine Hill. This 100% syrah is made much like our other syrahs, with natural fermentaion in open top fermenters, pressed into nuetral French oak barrels and aged for just under two years. This syrah is a great example of cool climate syrah, being bright in fruit and pretty on the pallet. Beautiful magenta color. Chaulky, blueberry compote, silky tannins that grow on the finish. Still developing in the bottle, worth drinking now and aging.

Co-fermented with 5% Viognier. Aged for 18 months in neutral French oak barrels.

Racy, vibrant, violet laced fruit reminiscent of French plums and licorice with a bit of kid leather. Amazing brightness to the fruit. Mouthwatering acidity brings you back for just one more sip. The depth of tannins combined with the vibrant acidity argue for a long life.

2012 Syrah Great Oak Vineyard Available: In Stock $38.00

Planted in the mid-1990's, this low yielding vineyard has always produced wines on the wild side. However, with increasing vine age, the wines have begun to tame down a bit. Although theyhave lost none of their power, they have just taken on a bit of grace.

Tasting Notes:

Dark. Very dark. Dense but vibrant. Plums, saddle leather, bacon, lavender. Long. These are my first impressions. Sometimes first impressions are the best!

2014 Tannat Matthews Station Available: Sold Out $34.00
The best know examples of wine made from an almost unknown grape are from the Madiran AOC. Madiran is in southwest France, near the Pyranees Mountains in an area referred to as Northern Basque Country. There are also large plantings in Uruguay, where it was introduced in the 1800’s by immigrants from France. In California, it was know since the 1800’s but it wasn’t until the owners of Chateau Beaucastel, in partnership with the Haas Family,established Tablas Creek Vineyards in Paso Robles that it became an accepted grape in the US. They petitioned the BATF and it was added to the list of permitted varietal names for wines in the US. There still isn’t a lot planted and very few pure tannat bottlings exist: A great year in which to make this wine. Aromas of fresh crushed black raspberries and not much more. Not much more is needed! (It is actually more complex than that but I will let you decide what the other descriptors should be!).

2018 Valdiguie Northern Sonoma Available: In Stock $34.00

Although not on the label, the fruit is from Dan Teldeschi's Vineyard in Dry Creek Valley. Dan is the nephew of the grower that Joe Swan made his legendary wine from in 1970. It was labeled Gamay, as it was erroneously known at the time (also referred to as Napa Gamay), This was probably due to the grapes slow maturing nature at low sugar levels. The light and fruity wines that it made resembled the wines of Beaujolais, France which is made from the non-related gamay grape.

Tasting notes:

Aromas of bright red cherries, with a hint of blackberry and pomegranate predominate. It is fresh and quaffable but with a hint of seriousness as well. It is a delightfully light bodied wine but still full of flavor. Sadly, it has become kind of hip and cool in the market. I like it because it is simply delicious no matter what others think!

2013 Zinfandel Bastoni Vineyard Available: In Stock $30.00
Located in what I refer to as the Riebli Valley, just a few miles east of Highway 101, this sight has been farmed by the Bastoni family since 1906. Martha Bastoni and her husband, Russ Messanna currently farm it. Although the old vines are gone, the replants are going strong and are meticulously cared for. And even though we have only been making wine from this vineyard for three years, it exhibits what I have come to view as a classic Bastoni nose of deep blue tinged fruit, like a cross between boysenberries and blueberries. Contrasting to Russian River Valley, the east side of the valley gives the wine more of a white pepper, red fruit, and juniper berry. Good but not overwhelming tannin or acidity, and medium to full body.

2016 Chardonnay Cuvee de Trois Available: In Stock $30.00

When relying on feral (native) yeasts for fermentation of chardonnay, you occasionally have barrels that are slow to complete. Such was the case in 2016. As long as there are viable yeast present and actually fermentation taking place (albeit slowly) we prefer to let nature take its course. Some barrels in 2016 really tested our resolve, taking nearly two years to complete their fermentation. In the end, we decided to create a small lot blend, using some of the Ritchie, Hawk Hill and our Trenton Estate wines The long aging on the lees had resulted in yeast autolysis, the same process that gives some champagnes their creamy bread dough notes, resulting in wines that were more about process than place .

Tasting notes:

Wonderfully rich and complex. The rich fruit of each of the three vineyards is there but the forward fruit has been modified and complimented with a wonderful, mouth filling impression of flaky pastry dough, sort of like a freshly baked apple and pear tart. The balancing acidity keeps everything in balance. This wine reminds me of a wine made by Matanzas Creek Winery back in the 80's. They called it Journey, in reference to the long time it took from grape to bottle and the many changes it made along the way, from fresh and fruity to a dark place before it came out the other side as a totally different wine. Sadly, I was only able to taste it once as it sold out instantly, but I always felt that it would continue to evolve much like a grand marque champagne. I have no idea if I was correct but I am going to following this one with keen interest.

2017 Grenache Blanc Cuvee Orange Available: In Stock $30.00

We make two different wines from Catie's Corner GB grapes each year; a traditional white wine in which the grapes are whole cluster pressed before fermentation in small stainless steel drums, and a second wine in which we treat it just like our pinot noir, with fermentation on the skins for up to three weeks before aging in older, neutral barrels. The latter is labeled Cuvée Orange.

Although the term orange wine refers to its being somewhere between and white and red wine, the wine actually has an orange tint to it! Aromatically it is also reminiscent of oranges. Not normal, typical oranges but some exotic, wild orange. There are aromas of flowers and herbs as well. Although I don't think of the texture as being that much like a red wine, it is definitely fuller bodied, more viscous and more structured than a white wine. The flavors follow through from the aromas, with a richness that almost implies a hint of sweetness. An intriguing and utterly delicious wine!
