Winemaker Notes

Our 2009 Chardonnay possesses a wonderful elegance due to the coolness of the vintage. While the wine still has the abundant orchard fruit flavors typical of Sonoma County Chardonnay, it also displays more citrus, acidity and minerality than we have seen in the past. The oak profile is also subdued to better match the wine's intensity, but there is still plenty of inherent texture and ripeness thanks to the Indian summer and frequent stirring of the lees. Overall, this is one of the most balanced, complex and delicious Sonoma County Chardonnays we've produced in years.

Balance, elegance and varietal purity mark this wine. It's delicious and zesty, filled with pineapple, pear, green apple, honey and oak, wrapped into a texture of buttercream and with a long, spicy finish.

Jerez-Manzanilla

Most Sherries are dry and meant to pair with food but the American society has traditionally focused on the sweet ones. Sherry comes from one place in the entire world, Andalucía, where the soil and unique seasonal changes give an unsurpassed character to the wines. The many styles change with the process of production, not really the grape, though certain styles are reserved for different grapes. The main grapes are Palomino, Pedro Ximénez and Muscat of Alexandria.

Pedro Ximénez can make some amazing sweet Sherries. Cream is the sweetest, darkest style of sherry, except sometimes Pedro Ximénez is sweeter.

The rest of the styles are dry and dependent on the action of flor, benevolent film-forming yeasts able to sustain a veil that floats on the surface of a wine.

FINO & MANZANILLA are the lightest styles and are meant to be drunk young.

AMONTILLADO happens when a Fino’s layer of flor fades and the wine starts to oxidize. Quite simply it is an aged Fino and has a darker color and richer palate.

When flor yeast dies unexpectedly, the result is Palo Cortado. Palo Cortado can behave like an Amontillado on the palate but often shows a great balance of richness and delicacy.

Oloroso never develops flor but is oxidized for five to twenty-five years and become aromatic and strong like a fine bourbon.
