2010 Barrel Fermented - Vinte Clone
Brilliant light golden color, an intense fragrance with green apples, citrus infused and lively acidity. Lingering finish in the mouth.
Pinot Noir 2009
Silver medal winner in both the San Francisco Chronicle
Wine Competition and the 10th Pinot Noir Shootout.
A favorite of Pinot lovers near and far, this enviable wine enjoys a rich, brilliant ruby-like hue. A swirl in the glass releases an enticing aroma with subtle notes of cherry and berries along with just a hint of smokiness. Generous up front wild cherry, then hints of cola, plum and blueberry. The fruit turns supple in the mid-palate with a refined and full-bodied finish. Our 2009 Pinot is drinking beautifully now and will continue to develop complexity for some time. Cellar through 2019.
Pinot Noir 2009 - Barrel Select
The beautiful garnet color and soft indulgent aromas of violets, dried cherries, and plum entice the palate and foretell of deep and intense fruit features that showcase our estate Pinot Noir. On the palate it is medium bodied with a silky decadent, viscous texure. The flavors are of dark fruits accented with dried herbs. The acidity is well balanced and the finish has an herbaceous and slightly floral quality to it. This wine is excellent when first opened, but for best enjoyment let it sit 20-30 minutes.
Estate Dornfelder 2012
Dark in color with a complex aroma of spices, tart huckleberry and other wild berries. On the
palate brilliant berry flavors. Current, blackberry and plum blend with intriging spices that
carry all the way through to the lingering finish. A beautifully structured wine that is very food friendly.
Pairs exceptionally well with anything off the grill. Decant, drink and enjoy!
Estate Charlotte's Reserve 2012
Inky black, with glycerin-like legs coating the glass. The 2012 Dornfelder is still a bit more purplish, dark amethyst hue than in past vintages.
On the nose, smoky notes mixed with concentrated berry and coffee bean aromas along with a hint of menthol that livens up the bouquet. A nice soft entry coats the palate prettily with high-toned notes of concentrated raspberry and framboise-like flavors, along with a bit of blackberry jam.
A nice, pleasant finish with beautiful balance, bright acids and soft tannins. Ready to enjoy now, but will age for the next 10-15 years. Cheers for Charlotte!

Dornfelder is a grape that is native
to Germany, but thrives in our cool climate
Sta. Rita Hills vineyard. It produces
inky dark wines, chock full of dark fruit
flavors and spicy character. To our delight,
we found that these hardy grapes can also
produce an intense and intriguing dessert
wine when harvested late.
