Winemaker's Notes

Our style for Carneros has always been one of moderate French oak and loads (some say bags) of juicy fruit flavors and jammy cherry aromas. Our core vineyards are Durell and Sangiacomo. The late vintage gave us fruit of moderate weight, so look for the 1998 to be lighter in body than the preceding 1997 vintage. We feel that this wine will be ready to drink upon release and shouldnt require further bottle aging.
