The idea behind using these two yeasts is to let the wine benefit from the structure provided by the AMH strain, while accentuating the fruit with the 3001. It was then sent to barrel for more than 18 months, an exceptionally long time for Pinot Noir. Everything in this wine tends toward brightness and clarity of fruit. The final alcohol is somewhere around 13.5%. The wine was aged exclusively in used French oak barrels, none less than two years old, with an eye toward preserving the delicate, floral character that is unique to Pinot Noir and is often lost by over-ripeness or too much oak. The nose is clear and bright and true to varietal character: rose petals, bramble, cranberry. The palate shows that this wine is still young; while the mouth-feel is decidedly delicate, there is quite a bit of lingering tannin. Unusually good acid keeps the whole flavor profile high and bright all the way through with lots of pure, red fruit – raspberry, strawberry, rhubarb. There are tertiary notes on the finish of dustiness and mint. That same trace of mint is noticeable in the 2013 Swan Clone Pinot still in barrel. The youth of this wine warrants pointing out again. Even as it is defined by delicacy and brightness, it has the acid and tannin to age for many years. The absence of new barrels has something to do with this, too. Just as a light hand with the oak allows the fruit to shine in this wine’s youth, it will likewise allow the secondary characteristics that develop with age to emerge clearly.

    The 2016 Sémillon’s aroma is dominated by citrus, particularly key lime, and the smell of wet stones, with just a touch of melon and yeastiness from the lees contact. A bright, almost flinty character carries through on the palate from start to finish. There is a ton of tang and citrus rind here, and the finish is like sucking on a river stone. As a variety, Sémillon has the reputation of developing well in the bottle, and this wine should live up to that – the edges softening slightly and the intense minerality receding to yield more fruit. Don’t be afraid to let this sit for a year or so.

    We grow the Chardonnay in reclaimed creek bed, and the grapes have a unique character not found in the rest of the vineyard. They are picked first, usually by the first week of September, and we put 40% through malolactic fermentation. The wine was aged in neutral French oak barrels for a year on the lees, with regular battonage (stirring). What these protocols achieve is a lovely brioche-like aroma, a creamy, complex texture, and balanced fruit flavors. I get lots of ripe pineapple, orange blossom, passionfruit, and a hint of yellow apple. The racy acidity laces it all together, with a finish that is long on flavor. I’d sip this with a cheese soufflé, steamed lobster or pasta primavera. Drink now, or hold for 2-3 years.

    We grow the Chardonnay in reclaimed creek bed, and the grapes have a pronounced mineral character unique to this patch of vineyard. They are picked first, usually by the 9th of September, and we put 40% through malolactic fermentation. The wine is aged in neutral French oak barrels for 5 months on the lees, with regular battonage (stirring). What these protocols achieve is an appealing brioche-like aroma, a creamy texture, and complex and balanced fruit flavors. I get layers of ripe pineapple, passionfruit, and orange blossom, and hint of yellow apple. The racy acidity laces it all together, with a persistent finish. I’d sip this with a cheese soufflé, steamed lobster or pasta primavera. Drink now, or hold for 2-3 years.

    Our 2015 Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir comes from a vineyard farmed by Andrew Flocchini in the Petaluma Gap--the country’s newest AVA. The Gap, defined by two coastal mountain ranges running inland from Bodega Bay to San Pablo Bay, is characterized mainly by heavy morning fog and blustery afternoon winds. The fruit grown here has a long, cool hang time, allowing all the signature flavors a chance to develop, and we feel very lucky to be getting these gorgeous, sustainably-farmed grapes from Andrew. For the 2015, we co-fermented roughly 45% Swan, 40% Pommard, and 15% La Tâche clones, left the wine to macerate for two weeks, then sent the blend to used French barrels for 15 months. It’s all about the “gôut de terroir,” or flavor of the land, meaning we want you to recognize this as a Pinot Noir from Petaluma Gap. The light ruby color telegraphs the site, as well as the quintessential rose petal and cranberry aromas. What I want in this varietal is all here: depth, nuance, silky texture, bright red fruit and lots of floral character. I also get some earthiness, umami-savoriness (soy sauce?), and cocoa. The tannins are soft, yet present at the finish, and the band plays on. Open tonight with a roasted pork loin--the orange peel notes will complement rosemary and garlic--or a spring sunset.
