2014 Napa Valley Chardonnay
Our first production from Yountville, still maintains the crisp style of Chardonnay that we like to make. The lovely bouquet and fresh palate was accomplished by stainless steel fermentation and less than 10% of the wine ageing on neutral French oak. A delicious, light and fruity wine that will accompany shellfish, simple salad or just enjoy by the pool or at the beach.

2011 Laura Michael Wines, Oat Hill Estate Zinfandel
2011 brought a similar growing season to 2010 with one major difference – no August heat spike. We learned from the challenge of 2010 and groomed the vineyard to allow more light and air to move through the canopy throughout the summer. The cool weather gave way to early rains - we couldn’t take the chance to let the zinfandel hang through the rain so we picked before the clouds gave way.
The wine was aged in American oak barrels for 19 months. First aromas of this wine remind us of blackberry pie, black cherries. This wine is dense and highly fruity – tannins are well integrated and add a long finish. Enjoy by 2019.

2008 Calistoga Cabernet Sauvignon “Barlow Vineyards”

Full bodied with rich, chewy tannins that will open up with decanting to drink now or will age well in your cellar. Decant now or drink by 2023.
