6 Bottles each of our 2016 Estate Pinot noir and our 2017 Santa Cruz Mountains Chardonnay
The Estate Pinot noir from our certified organic, dry farmed, vineyard in Portola Valley: Intriguing aromas of elderberry and mulberry meet with dried lilac and violet on the nose of this potpourri-laden bottling. Dried flowers, from rose to lavender, spice up the palate, where dried cranberries and a hint of game sit atop a slightly chewy, vibrant, dry medium-to-full body and a graceful, medium-length finish with drying tannins and moderate oak flavor. A somewhat brooding and chewy Pinot Noir for the table.
The Santa Cruz Mountains Chardonnay: Aromas and flavors of roasted agave, roasted squash, banana chips, sunflower seeds, honey, and stewed peaches with a slightly chewy, sharp, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a warming, interesting, easy finish with moderate oak flavor. A distinctive Chardonnay from the Palo Alto foothills.
