Winemaker Notes

El Novillero is a dramatic parcel in the western-most hills of the Carneros AVA. At 500 feet elevation, it is one of the highest elevation vineyards in the appellation, and it sits in a foggy, natural amphitheater facing southeast towards the San Francisco Bay.

The wine is amply aromatic, crisp and round just where it needs to be, and beautifully flavored. Just as Michael Pollan in Second Nature refers to a garden as the caretaker's 'autograph', Neyers thinks of this bottling of Chardonnay as the ultimate representation of themselves, and what they aspire to as vintners.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WS 92
Wine Spectator
Intense and full-bodied, delivering lots of spice, floral and green apple and honey notes. A shade richer than the Carneros bottling, yet also a bit grainier. Drink now through 2018. 372 cases made.

Neyers
Begun in 1992 by Bruce and Barbara Neyers and their winemaking partner, Ehren Jordan, Neyers Vineyards produces 15,000 cases of wine annually. They rely primarily on Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon grown on the Neyers' 50-acre Conn Valley ranch farmed by Hugo and Lupe Maldonado. Additioanl grapes are purchased from a select group of growers, several of which are identified on the labels of wines produced from grapes they have grown. In 1999 Neyers purchased the 30-acre Sage Canyon Winery in the foothills east of Rutherford and have developed that facility for their entire production that also includes Syrah, Grenache, Zinfandel and Chardonnay.

Napa Valley

Cabernet Sauvignon

The Napa Valley and Cabernet Sauvignon are so intrinsically linked that it is difficult to discuss one without thinking of the other. Although Cabernet has many important outposts throughout the wine world, nowhere else has it achieved such success (and, at the highest end, commanded such lofty prices) than in Napa. Here, it is responsible for bold, opulent, and dark-fruited wines with grippy tannins and a healthy dose of alcohol. The best examples can age for decades. Each of Napa’s smaller sub-AVAs imparts a different character to Cabernet, such as Rutherford’s famous dust or Stags Leap District's tart cherry flavors.
