2016 Rosé, Defina's Vineyard, Arroyo Seco
Fermented in stainless steel but aged in barrels with weekly lees
stirring. "Delicate apricot color in the glass. The nose is alive and
sustained in the glass, offering aromas of apricot, strawberry, cherry,
blood orange and a floral note. The delicious flavors of cherry,
strawberry white peach and apricot have good weight and are bright
and lifted. The wine is perfectly balanced with fresh acidity, finishing
with a blood orange tang. The best domestic rosé that I have
experienced in quite awhile." -Prince of Pinot:

2016 Pinot Noir, Lester Family Vineyard, Santa Cruz Mtn
"Moderate garnet color in the glass. Aromas of darker berries, spice and
nutty oak open the way to a mid weight plus styled wine featuring tasty
flavors of well-ripened black raspberry, blackberry and black currant.
Plenty of fruit to satisfy with a healthy tannic backbone, a
complimentary oak thread, and a friendly finish." Score: 92 -Prince of

2013 Syrah, Flocchini Vineyard, Petaluma Gap
"This is a lovely, light-hearted yet complex 100% varietal wine that
shows the beauty of a lighter touch and cooler climate. Cedar, herb and
compost provide a wildness next to aromas of feral mushroom.
Intriguing all the way around, this wine finishes in a burst of white
pepper." -Wine Enthusiast:

PURCHASE

2015 Syrah, Tondré Grapefield, Santa Lucia Highlands
"Savory aromas of pepper, roast beef and hearty dark fruit show on the
nose of this bottling, a rare Syrah from the Santa Lucia Highlands. There
are tangy flavors of underripe blackberry on the palate, but the crushed
peppercorn and lamb roast with rosemary elements are most
prominent." -Wine Enthusiast:
