Black Stallion Los Carneros Pinot Noir (Napa-Sonoma, California)
This is a voluptuous wine with rich, full flavors and silky, supple tannins. Aromas of black cherry, mocha and hints of toasty oak translate effortlessly to the palate where red fruit flavors of Bing cherry and strawberry are complemented by undertones of cool minerality and marked acidity.

Twenty Rows Cabernet Sauvignon (North Coast, CA)
The nose displays aromas of bright black cherries, followed by dusty cocoa and roasting coffee beans. Dense texture and a fine sense of balance enhance the flavors of blackberry, currants, vanilla bean and dark chocolate.

St. Clement Chardonnay Carneros (Napa Valley, California)
Enticing aromas of red apple and honeysuckle. On the palate, vanilla cream soda mingle with tropical fruit flavors and notes of cantaloupe. This finishes with bright acidity.

The grapes for the 2012 Napa Valley Carneros Chardonnay were sourced primarily from our Stanly Lane Vineyard in Carneros.A smaller percentage (20%) of fruit came from Abbotts Vineyard, an exceptional source for St. Clement Chardonnay for many years. Grapes for the 2012 Napa Valley Chardonnay were harvested between September 2nd and September 25th.
