Before bottling our new wines, we meticulously taste samples from each barrel to determine how the final blend will taste. Every so often, we will discover a barrel or two that display more complexity, depth of flavor, and character than the others. In 2013, we discovered two such barrels...
Luscious, rich, and fruit-forward, the effects we attribute to the use of the puncheons are defined by precise fruit flavors supported by the perfect amount of toasty oak notes from start to finish. Notes of ripe cherry, red currant, smoke and leather with a hint of strawberry and cedar hit the palate with a fresh and refined quality. Designed to age, this wine will continue to show beautifully for years to come. Limited production of 267 cases.
The 2013 Conway Pinot Noir Sta Rita Hills is the perfect example of how beautiful, restrained, and refined California Pinot Noir can be. A small production of 900 cases produced.Elegant and fragrant, the first sip pulls you into a seamless balance of strawberry and black cherry flavors. Polished, precise, and pure fruit flavors emerge from the glass. Restrained yet complete, from start to finish.
