2016 Golden Chardonnay
California-Monterey County

Winemaker’s Notes: The golden yellow hue is clearly embraced through the clear glass bottle. Nothing to hide here. It’s looks like liquid gold. Classic tropical and stone fruit aromas of peaches, pineapple, papaya, apricot, and banana with notes of lemon zest, orange blossom, and vanilla cream. In the glass, there is a sophisticated balance of fruit, mineral, oak, and acid. No heat or overwhelming richness. The fruit and acid are at the forefront with bright pineapple, peach, and star fruit. The minerality lingers on the mid-palate and finish, where there is what I describe as a river rock character. The oak is very subtle, and grounds the flavors by adding a soft vanilla bean nuttiness, like the perfect pie crust of a meringue pie.

2017 Golden Pinot Noir
California-Monterey County

Winemaker’s Notes: Aromas and flavors of cherries, melted chocolate toffee, mocha, and toast with a satiny, vibrant, dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body and a complex, long finish with chocolate, orange peels, and strawberries, creme brulee, and a hint bacon with well-integrated, fine tannins.
