HERINGER ESTATE VINEYARD | Clarksburg
Our 2020 Rosé is dry, crisp, and complex. This is a serious wine with great balance and texture. We harvested Tempranillo and Mourvèdre from the Heringer Estate Vineyard in Clarksburg to create a very Mediterranean styled Rosé. Strawberries, watermelon rind, rhubarb, and white peach are exhibited on the nose with weight on the mid to back palate. The wine finishes with wonderful, crisp, juicy acidity. We have found our Rosés benefit from a little bottle age and continue to develop complexity over a few years.

2021 SAUVIGNON BLANC
MORGAEN LEE VINEYARD | Yountville
The 2021 Morgaen Lee Sauvignon Blanc is a stunner. With expressions of melon, guava, a touch of citrus, white stone fruit, dried hay, and wet stone minerality, the 2021 Sauvignon Blanc continues to evolve in the glass. A touch of Pinot Grigio adds weight to the mid-palate helping the wine to be expansive with a long, crisp finish. This is an elegant and graceful wine that should continue to develop in the bottle over the next 5 years.
