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

Think of Cuvee L as a supercharged rendition of our Reserve Cabernet, with a swimsuit model at the wheel.

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

    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

    More than Fourth of July fireworks this 2013 Mason's Cabernet is 100% fun! Explosive aromas of plum, huckleberry, cocoa and cedary oak spice go off in every direction. A Roman candle of velvety black fruit laced with white chocolate blasts from the glass with surprising muscle. Supple and focused through the finish this wine deftly balances smiles and mischief not unlike Mason himself. 900 cases produced.

  • 2013 Alec's Blend

    2013 Alec's Blend

    Napa Valley

    There's no Alice Cooper in his iTunes library, but Alec is 18 - and he likes it! For his college Freshman year send-off we blended 60% Syrah, 22% Merlot and 18% Cabernet Sauvignon - a power trio of guitar, bass and drums that rocks harder than any vintage in recent memory. Super ripe blackberry, vanilla blueberry, mocha and oak spices gain presence and steadily push the volume past 10. Tons of ripe, hedonistic fruit brings big stage presence while handsomely hewn tannins add drive and keep this wall of sound distortion free. 1,300 cases produced.

    2013 Ethan's Syrah

    Napa Valley

    Our 2013 Ethan's Syrah is a real standout, much like the Freshman kid who made varsity and started at second base this season. The wine leads off with vibrant color and deliciously complex aromas of violet, vanilla and pancetta laced with sapwood and smoky clove spices. Dense fruit with lean muscle takes a wide stance at the plate and, off the bat, this syrah lines deep to center with dark berries, cola and youthful intensity. 350 cases produced.

    Dark as night with Jurassic period proportions and a tar-pit of black fruit our 2013 Syrah is to die for. A volcano of brutish blackberry and ripe peach is peppered with licorice, vanillin and Turkish coffee aromas. Deceitfully supple on entry this is a wine to really sink your teeth into with layers of fleshy fruit bound by muscle, mature tannins, and massive bone structure. 150 cases produced.

    Chardonnay

    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.
