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.

Crisp, bright, and vivacious, CB+V 2017 is an aromatic white blend boasting a bouquet of oroblanco blossoms, honeysuckle, citrus, tropical fruit, and fresh cut green herbs. The bright entry reveals lychee, key lime, white peach, grapefruit, and nectarine flavors. Lemon-lime and balanced acidity carry through the clean, gentle, lingering finish.
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.
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.
