Wine Description

(From 2010 Vintage) The 2010 vintage allowed us to craft a wonderfully aromatic wine while preserving a balanced acidity. Inviting aromas Granny Smith apples, Bartlett pears, orange blossom, and cinnamon spice. On the palate, flavors of apple pie, pear, banana bread and green tea give into a rich yet racy finish. Traditionally crafted without malolactic fermentation, the 2010 Chardonnay retains a bright acidity that lingers on the palate for a beautifully integrated finish.

    (From 2008 Vintage) The more limited release 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve Oakville (this particular bottle was finished with a screw cap) has a bluish/purple color and a nose of blueberry liqueur intermixed with creme de cassis, violets and spice box. Super rich, with velvety tannins, this full-bodied wine (100% Cabernet Sauvignon from the McWilliams Oakville Vineyard, just several hundred yards off the Silverado Trail) displays impeccable balance, great richness, and a multi-layered mouthfeel and finish. Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon at its very finest, it should drink well for 15-30 years.

    (From 2008 Vintage) Firm, tight and chewy, with rich, extracted, minty currant, blackberry, sage, cedar, roasted coffee and floral notes. Full-bodied, gaining depth and nuance all the way. Ends with a long, detailed, persistent finish that only promises better things to come. Best from 2012 through 2024. –JL
