White Wines

2019 Chardonnay 

Tondre Grapefield / Santa Lucia Highlands

A special small lot batch created by our award winning winemaker Anthony Craig. This 2019 offering is primarily tank fermented using Champagne yeast to give a creaminess to the mid-palate. A small portion was fermented in the barrel for a touch of added complexity. The minimal oak usage allows the pure, crisp chardonnay Chablis style fruit to shine through. The minimal oak shows a very subtle hint of spice on the finish. 


Red Wines

2020 Pinot Noir

Santa Cruz Mountains

The 2020 Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot is a blend of 3 vineyards 5% Regan from Corralitos, 15% Scimuniti also from Corralitos, 80% DeCaloli from Woodside. Each vineyard brings its own unique character to the blend. The Regan vineyard offers up an array of bright red cherry fruit, while the Scimuniti brings a fuller mouthfeel and black cherry fruit to the party. The DeCaloli Vineyard contributes an elegant touch of red cherry fruit and a long soft palate. As is so often the case, a blended pinot can offer up a wider array of fruit and depth to the wine as opposed to a single vineyard designate, as the attributes of the differing locations bring their unique qualities to bear.


2019 Pinot Noir  **SOLD OUT**

Black Ridge Vineyard

This 2019 offering shows an amazing concentration of black cherry fruit with a hint of rose petal and lavender. There is a slight smoky, almost toasty character that mingles with the fruit all the way to the finish. The balanced acidity and soft plush tannins create a wonderfully pleasing mouthfeel and will aid in its ability to age for the long term.


2019 Pinot Noir 

Regan Vineyard

The 2019 vintage of Regan Vineyard Pinot Noir shows opulent black cherry fruit and spicy aromatics. The use of tight grained oak gently and subtly infuses cinnamon and nutmeg spice into the wine during the extended aging period. The palate lingers with bright cherry fruit and finishes with a hint of cranberry.


2019 Zinfandel


The 2019 Estate Vineyard Zinfandel shows classic mountain grown intense fruitiness and spice; expressed in Zin as raspberries and black pepper.  The Santa Cruz Mountains AVA attributes of minerality and acidity come shining through to make a complex age worthy wine. The palate shows bright berry fruit with hints of earth and floral notes and finishes with that characteristic black pepper note.


2014 Port of Syrah

Santa Lucia Highlands

When making port, we wait for the Syrah to ferment down from 25% sugar to about 10% sugar. We then take the partially fermented Syrah juice from the fermenter and transfer it to a stainless-steel tank where we add the high proof brandy to arrest the fermentation. From here on, the yeast slowly die off due to the high alcohol, but they continue to ferment through another +/- 2% or 3% sugar. Once the fermentation has quieted down, it goes directly to barrel where it is aged for 3 or 4 years prior to bottling. Unlike dry table wine, the port is not topped or any sulfur added. Whereas omitting the SO2 would create a heavily oxidized wine with potential to turn rapidly into vinegar, the slow oxidation of the port creates the desired “nutty” characteristic that we associate with port.Black Currents, (Cassis), blueberries and blackberries are consistent fruit characteristics of the Syrah, and the fortification process preserves and highlights all these qualities.

2011 Pinot Noir **SOLD OUT**

Tondre Grapefield / Santa Lucia Highlands

Always a complex and fruity wine, The Tondre Grapefield continues to amaze and the 2011 vintage is no exception. Truly one of the best yet from this vineyard, and the folks at the San Francisco Chronicle seem to agree by awarding it "Best of Class" in the 2014 wine competition.  This offering is loaded with red & black cherry fruit with a hint of cranberry on the finish. Balanced acidity and plush velvety tannins mixed with the spicy oak aromas and flavours fill the palate, and continue all the way to the finish.


NV Tawny Port

2008 & 2009 Vintages

This non-vintage port is a 50/50 blend of the 2008 and 2009 port of Syrah from the Coastview Vineyard. It has an amazing depth of fruit after aging for 13 years in barrel. The long term aging has created those wonderful nutty, floral earthy aromas which carry through on the palate. Ports are often in the 20% alcohol range and 12% sugar range, but this delightful port is 18.5 alcohol and 8.5 residual sugar; which allows it to be a little more accessible and fruit forward. 


2005 Tawny Port

Monterey County, Coastview Vineyard

Oak barrel aged for 3 years and then aged out 15 years total. This Port has deep rich flavors of black currents, (cassis), blueberries and blackberries that are consistent fruit characters of the Syrah from the Coast View vineyard and the fortification preserves all of these qualities for the port. Owner Mike Ballard dubbed this bottling the "Nectar of the Gods"!
