Our wines begin as numerous small lots of fruit vinified by vineyard block, varietal, clone and rootstock.

At the winery, we taste through each lot regularly to track the evolution of individual wines and to fine tune barrel selections. Ultimately, every single barrel is tasted and evaluated before we put our final blends together for bottling.

  • Chardonnay is whole cluster pressed, barrel fermented and aged sur lies with batonnage in 100% French oak for 11-15 months, undergoing 100% malolactic fermentation, then bottled unfined and unfiltered. Sauvignon Blanc is whole cluster pressed, fermented and barrel aged in French oak and stainless steel for 9-11 months with zero malolactic fermentation.

  • Red varietals are picked at full ripeness and maturity. Hand sorted and de-stemmed to small stainless steel tanks and open top fermenters, the wines are pressed off at dryness after 2-4 weeks on the skins. Bordeaux varietals are aged primarily in new French oak for 19 months then bottled unfined and unfiltered. We also like American oak in some of our blends including the Alec's Blend and Syrah. We produce big, spicy, concentrated wines that are balanced yet full of black fruit and mature, mouth-coating tannins.

2012 Cuvee L

2012 Cuvee L

Napa Valley

Youthful and forward with juicy blackberry, silk-skinned plum and rich, malt chocolate, ample tannins bring maturity, depth and heightened experience to the wine. 150 cases produced.

  • 2013 Hillstone Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon

    2013 Hillstone Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon

    Napa Valley

    There's some exhibitionism involved with this 2013 vintage, voluptuous and plush with black vine fruits, white chocolate, candle wax and salacious oak spice. There's a serious side to this show too with notes of stone and trim-bodied tannins making this a highly desirable wine. The Hillstone Cabernet is created from prime hillside vineyards at the home of George and Carol Biel. Planted in 1993, the vines are rooted in cobbly, light loam soils, terraced on a steep, west-facing slope in Rutherford. 250 cases produced.

  • 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon

    2013 Cabernet
    Sauvignon

    Napa Valley

    We make four unique cabernets but the Napa Valley Cab is our preferred daily driver. Not a hybrid or 4-cylinder econo-box; more of a 3.0-litre in-line six that's silky smooth with plenty of supple power. The 2013 sports a plush interior and wide array of currants, berries, black truffle and mocha aromas. The steering, gearbox and brakes work together seamlessly, and the experience is competent and rewarding under all road conditions. With plenty of staggered-wheel grip beneath a chassis of fine-tuned tannins this wine displays remarkable fit and finish. 1,600 cases produced.

    Napa Valley

    At 13 he's still the youngest brother, but big things come in small packages and this 2014 Mason's is full-on Napa Cabernet packed with juicy black plum and mature, chocolaty tannins. There's also plenty of Heath bar, cocoa powder and sweet oak spice to crank up the fun factor before things get too serious. 800 cases produced.

  • 2014 Alec's Blend

    2014 Alec's Blend

    Napa Valley

    With one year of college completed, Alec's wine is both boy and man in this boundary-pushing blend of Syrah 60%, Merlot 34% and Cabernet 6%. Asserting his independence through explosively ripe blackberry and huckleberry fruits, there's also kirsch-like cherry cola, spicy oak, supple tannin and a trace of s'mores that's closer to home. Tremendously youthful and seriously good fun, Alec's Blend remains a kid at heart. 1,200 cases produced.

    2014 Ethan's Syrah

    Napa Valley

    Born in 2000, everything about Ethan and his new 2014 Syrah sings "sweet sixteen." Vivid color and distinctly ripe, youthful Rhone character shines bright with violets, charcuterie, oak and vanillin spices.

  • 2014 Syrah

    2014 Syrah

    Napa Valley

    Our 2014 Napa Syrah is a lot like Joan Jett and the Blackhearts. An xx-chromosome rock star with obsidian color, ferocious fruit and salacious spice. Yet behind the massive stage presence, this wine is a triple-velour curtain of cascading fruit and surprisingly supple-skinned tannins that linger with feline tenacity. We love rock 'n roll, but not like we love syrah! 175 cases produced.

Napa Valley

The longer wheelbase and wider track of the 2013 Merlot make it more comfortable and more capable than any recent vintage.

    2014 Reserve
    Chardonnay

    Napa Valley

    Another outstanding year, our 2014 Reserve Chardonnay is an aromatic orchard of blossoms with sweet gardenia and ripe green pear. Butterscotch, brioche and fine-grained oak spice bring complexity to the nose as the wine unfurls. Densely fruited and richly rendered the palate has tremendous breadth and nuance that yields to a very long and detailed, leesy finish. 550 cases produced.

    2014 Barcaglia Lane Chardonnay

    Russian River Valley

    2014 makes it three excellent vintages in a row for our Barcaglia Lane Chardonnay, sourced from a trio of clones at this Dutton Ranch vineyard. The wine is all succulent, ripe citrus with toasty tangerine, orange zest and lemon-lime. Toasty gun-barrel oak and vanilla, together with tropical fruit skin and spice completes the package. Buttressed by a framework of native acidity the wine is gauzy in weight and texture, staying up in the palate before finishing with focus and clarity. 500 cases produced.
