Our Hahn SLH Pinot Noir is truly an estate wine. We produce it entirely in the Santa Lucia Highlands where we grow the grapes in our own vineyards, choose the best fruit, age the wine in French oak barrels in our cellar and bottle it on site. To make our Hahn SLH Pinot Noir, our winemakers select fruit that yields the most expressive aromas and flavors. After the fruit is carefully sorted, it undergoes a three-day cold soak in open top fermenters. We then age this 100% Pinot Noir for 11 months in a selection of French oak barrels. When the wine is ready to be blended, we choose the barrels we feel best exemplified the aromas, flavors and structure of the Santa Lucia Highlands. The result is a Pinot Noir that opens with alluring aromas of black cherry and dark currant. What follows are intense black fruit flavors balanced by ripe red plums and a hint of allspice. A slight acidity beautifully highlights the supple tannins and long finish.
Mount Eden Vineyards Estate Chardonnay 2013The full-bodied Estate Chardonnay displays fine underlying acidity and a long finish. Hints of cardamom, anise and hazelnut and interest to the core lemon mineral flavors. Of all of Mount Eden's estate-grown wines, the Chardonnay is most in need of further bottle aging at release, requiring an additional two to four years to fully reveal its true char- acter. Many vintages are still fresh and enjoyable after fifteen years, explaining why Mount Eden Estate Chardonnay is considered one of California's longest-lived white wines.
Chappellet Signature Cabernet Sauvignon 2013The phenomenal 2013 growing season has yielded one of our finest Sig- nature Cabernets in memory. Both charming and complex, this is a wine that strikes a deft balance between elegance and power. The nose reveals layers of black cherry, cassis, dark chocolate, roasted coffee and oak- inspired notes of cedar and spice. On the palate, fine-grained tannins underscore a classic Cabernet structure, as well as alluring blackberry and wild berry flavors that resonate through to a long, lingering finish.
Beaux Freres The Beaux Frères Vineyard Pinot Noir 2014Color - Medium to dark ruby, Body - medium to full. A darker, more brooding and fuller bodied wine, our original estate vineyard Pinot is approachable but ideally will benefit from several years of patience. Clearly one of our best vintages given the richness and purity of the spectrum of red, blue and black fruits on parade and virtually no oak showing despite being raised in about 50% of the finest French oak. Originally Mike farmed it conventionally but about 13 years ago started experimenting with nonconventional farming methods and now our entire property is being farmed using biodynamic principles. We are not certified either organic or biodynamic but we invite you to visit our farm (by appointment please) and see our farming practices firsthand.
Owen Roe Sinister Hand 2015The 2015 'Sinister Hand' red blend is a generous fusion of Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre, and Cinsaut. It is easily approachable while displaying undeniable complexity. The Grenache portion of the blend contributes cranberry and raspberry candied fruit notes, while the Syrah delivers darker fruits and savory characteristics. Mourvedre enhances the structure and richness of the body and provides delicate aromas of violets. The partially carbonic macerated Cinsaut brings liveliness and tropical fruit flavors to the blend. Try pairing with a smoked salmon dish with cranberry sauce and grilled portabello.

Patricia Green Estate Old Vine Ribbon Ridge Pinot Noir 2017Ribbon Ridge can produce wines of incredible delicacy and wines of enormous power. Patricia Green's Estate Vineyard bottling has always fallen into the latter category. The duress the plants are under in the thin marine soils' upper layers causes the fruit to be relatively low in yields and smaller on a per cluster basis. This makes for darker and more naturally more structured wines.
Patricia Green Dry Muscat Ottonel 2016Muscat Ottonel is a white wine grape variety that is a member of the Muscat family. It is most notable for its use in dessert wines from Austria, Romania, Croatia and Serbia as well as dry wines from Alsace and Hungary. We have produced this exotic varietal in a bone-dry style showcasing its elegance and fragrance of pear blossoms and white flowers. This is generally a lower acid grape and while it is far from high in acid it has a nice lift and snap to it that makes for a refreshing, almost thirst-quenching sort of beverage.
