Beatty Ranch

Our new Howell Mountain addition is sure to please. Briary notes of blackberry and cassis expand on the palate, while a rich, coating structure adds depth and complexity. This wine is sure to sell out quickly since our first release is of very limited quantity.

Element 28

2012 is this vineyard’s debut vintage. Located in the eastern hills near Lake Hennessey, this vineyard has all the elements of a great hillside wine. Exquisite, ripe, boysenberry fruit is complemented by floral expressions that add dimension. A solid core of tannin enhances the wine’s impressive character.

Sori Bricco Vineyard

Located on Diamond Mountain, this wine presents a combination of flavors including ripe, berry fruits, floral elements and hints of minerality. The hillside structure adds depth and intensity and will benefit with time in the bottle.

Rock Cairn Vineyard

Black cherry fruit, herb, tea and earth blend harmoniously to offer a distinctive flavor profile. The tannins are quite elegant this year and the wine will age beautifully in the barrel.

John C. Sullenger Vineyard

This wine is nothing short of spectacular. Juicy, black cherry and blackberry combine with dried herb notes, earth and tobacco. These flavors build on the middle palate, as a rich core of supple tannin adds depth and complexity.

Branding Iron Vineyard

This wine offers wonderful flavor expression. Vibrant berry fruit, herb and spice show nicely at this time. Its structure is quite approachable for Oakville and should age well in the French oak barrels, yielding a wine that is consistent to the site.

Tench Vineyard

True to its site, flavors of blueberry are predominant in this wine, while notes of sweet herb and vanilla give complexity. The full texture expands on the middle palate, adding length and juiciness to the finish. Its depth and structure are classic Oakville.

State Ranch

An opulent supply of jammy fruit mixed with a little minerality, carried on a plush, velvety texture, makes this wine hard to miss. The balance and complexity is alluring, and this vineyard continues to produce exciting wines.

Copper Streak Vineyard

Juicy, dark fruit flavors of berry and cassis blend nicely with hints of mineral and earth to make this fruit profile quite unique. The wine’s natural acidity and rich texture is reminiscent of hillside fruit, even though the vineyard is on the flats of the Stags Leap District. This will be a wine of great distinction.
