These are my current offerings.

 

Holiday 2018 Sampler

Holiday 2018 Sampler

Price: $306.00
Qty.  

I've been making wine with Carneros grapes all of my career, starting with my first full time job at Saintsbury and spanning to the present. To celebrate that lengthy history with the rolling hills of Carneros I've put together a Carneros sampler for the 2018 holidays.

2017 Gamay Noir Carneros

2017 Gamay Noir Carneros

Price: $25.00
Qty.  

The love affair continues. This, my third attempt at Gamay, is from the most difficult vintage in recent memory. Partly because of the well publicized wildfires that burned through the north coast in October of 2017 but also because of wildly diverse (not always in a good way) weather throughout the growing season.  Despite the strange season, the Gamay came through like a champ. Yes, it is a bit "bigger" than normal because of the hot growing season, but with a little air it reveals its full "Gamay-ness:" juicy fruit, a hint of stems, lots of energy and life. Fun to drink.


2015 Hirsch Vineyard Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

2015 Hirsch Vineyard Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

Price: $56.00
Qty.  

I had only two barrels of Hirsch Pinot Noir in 2015. Yields can be unreliable in the Sonoma Coast, and they were especially so in 2015. The closer to the ocean the more difficult it was. Fortunately, the wine is superb. I only wish there were more of it!


2015 "The Habitat" Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

2015 "The Habitat" Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

Price: $45.00
Qty.  

The Habitat is often my personal favorite among my various offerings. Is it the best wine? Depends upon your point of view, I suppose. But in the best years, and 2015 is one of those years, it combines pure ripe fruit, liveliness, precision and deliciousness in a way that, to me, is the holy grail of new world Pinot Noir. 


2015 Sonoma Coast Chardonnay

2015 Sonoma Coast Chardonnay

Price: $35.00
Qty.  

For the first time, my Sonoma Coast Chardonnay is a blend. About 2/3 from La Cruz vineyard in the Petaluma Gap (source of my Chardonnay from the beginning) and 1/3 from the Barlow Homestead vineyard in Sebastopol. Ripe fruit from La Cruz, precision and cut from Barlow. They work well together!


2015 "The Shop" Carneros Pinot Noir

2015 "The Shop" Carneros Pinot Noir

Price: $35.00
Qty.  

It is here at last, the 2015 "The Shop" Carneros Pinot Noir. From the highly touted 2015 vintage. An excellent year for Pinot Noir in the north coast of California.
