Crisp, bright, and vivacious, CB+V 2018 is an aromatic white blend boasting a bouquet of honeysuckle and orange blossoms along with tropical fruit aromas of lychee and pineapple complemented by green apple, lemon, and grapefruit. The entry is bright and fresh, exhibiting flavors of fresh ginger, ruby grapefruit, lemon curd, and Granny Smith apples. While this is a fresh, juicy wine, it has an incredible midpalate weight with zesty acidity carrying the flavors through to the lengthy finish.
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 2017 is the inaugural release of the Pine Ridge Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc. Sauvignon Blanc is thought to have originated in the southwest of France as an indigenous grape, the name coming from the French sauvage meaning “wild,” and blanc meaning “white.” Eventually it made its way to Bordeaux, so our winemaking team thought it suitable to produce this white to complement our Cabernet Sauvignons.
