2018 Grenache blanc – $26

Bright and crisp with a nose full of citrus zest, Asian pear, unripe mango and melon – this is a plump and juicy wine on the palate that leads with fruit and lingers with subtle herbal notes.

2017 Viognier – $26

Viognier can be very floral and flabby when allowed to get overripe on the vine. We pick it early to bring out the tropical flavors of melon, balanced with the floral aromas of honeysuckle. We also find a nice level of acid provides a bit of lemon peel to balance to abundant fruit.

2016 Roussanne – $26

Roussanne is golden in the glass with an aroma of Meyer lemon, honeycomb, spices and baked apple. It’s medium to full bodied with a round middle and a hint of floral notes on the finish.

2017 Aubade – $28

Fruity and floral on the nose with an exotic whiff of peach blossom, melon, honeysuckle, and vanilla. Viognier adds weight to the palate while the brisk acidity of the wine keeps it from becoming cloying. Picpoul blanc provides the backbone and a minerality for longevity.

2017 Rosé of Grenache – $16

Most rosés don’t last in the bottle but our darker rosé, with solid tannin and good acid, is just hitting its stride. Darker, weightier, and drier than you might expect, our 2017 Grenache Rosé is perfect for enjoying during the warm summer evenings ahead.

2016 Grenache noir – $30

In its youth, this wine is a mouthful of plum and cherry fruit with pleasant notes of dried herbs and a bright, clean palate. As this wine ages, we expect it to mellow into a silky smoothness centered less on fruit and more on the herbal complexity.
