From our Collines Vineyard estate in the cool Carneros region comes this distinctive, complex, deeply golden Chardonnay. Aromas are inviting with notes of oak, vanilla, citrus, apples, and pineapple. This single vineyard produces a structured and voluptuous Chardonnay with generous fruit flavors of apple, citrus, and tropical fruit, with nuances of caramel and spice from oak aging. A nutty character and notes of apple crumble complement the bright citrus accents. The silky, creamy mouthfeel combines with bright acidity and leads to a clean, lingering finish.
The Oakville appellation spans the Napa Valley from the Vaca Mountains in the east to the Mayacamas in the west. Within this storied terroir, our 25-acre Dos Olivos Vineyard—so named for the two stately olive trees that guard its entrance—has moderate temperatures and well-drained gravel and clay soils that yield Cabernet Sauvignon of exceptional structure and balance. The elegant red fruit character, supported by well-integrated tannins, picks up jammy, sweet raspberry and vanilla crème flavors. Inviting nuances of milk chocolate and a silky texture with balanced acidity keep bringing you back to the glass. Additional cellaring will reward the collector.
We looked to the Clarksburg appellation in the Sacramento Delta for this bright, delightful Chenin Blanc. Aromas of honeysuckle, cantaloupe, citrus, and honey lead to a viscous palate of melon, pear, lemongrass, and Meyer lemon. This is a bone-dry wine, whose balanced acidity and clean, refreshing finish make it perfect for sipping and easy to pair with food. Enjoy with crab, scallops in butter, or halibut.
Cave 7 is sourced from blocks throughout our favorite estate vineyards and is named for the deepest wing of our caves, where this Cabernet Sauvignon ages in French oak barrels. Toasted nuts and sweet vanilla from oak aging, pie crust, and cinnamon are layered with dark ripe cherries. On the palate, the fresh ripe red fruit flavors combine with caramel, brown sugar, and a hint of white pepper. Complex and layered, the Cave 7 is a well-integrated wine with velvety tannins, mouthwatering acidity, and a lasting sweet finish. Try pairing with beef bourguignon.
Tessitura represents the range of terroir expression across our estate vineyards and displays the powerful elegance that defines the wines of Pine Ridge Vineyards. This wine opens with aromas of ripe plum and berries with an enchanting forest, clove, anise, and vanilla medley. On the palate, delicious flavors of blackberry pie emphasize dark berry fruit and spice notes combined with brown sugar. Rich and creamy with layered complexity and mouthwatering acidity, this wine has a long, sweet, cherry-cola finish. Enjoy with an oily fish like black bass.
