2017 À la Volée, Sparkling Riesling
For the 2017 vintage we fully embraced méthode champenoise

tasty. Grapes grown at Tondré Grapefield in the Santa Lucia Highlands.

2018 Rosé, Defina's Vineyard, Arroyo Seco
The Pinot Noir grapes were picked at just 20 Brix  and fermented in
stainless steel to produce a light, fruity and zingy Rosé that's fresh and
lively and sure to quench your thirst during warmer weather.
Production: 40 cases.

2018 Riesling, Tondré Grapefield, Santa Lucia Highlands
The driest Tondré made by Waxwing to date with 7.8 g/L of residual
sugar. Tondré Riesling pairs with nuts, cheese, chicken, fish, pizza,
salads, etc. I especially like to drink it as an aperitif while preparing
dinner at home. This vineyard is located in the prestigious Santa Lucia
Highlands AVA. Production: 135 cases.

2017 Pinot Noir, Deerheart Vineyard, Santa Cruz Mtn
From the extreme western edge of the Santa Cruz Mountain AVA and
only 3 miles from the Pacific Ocean comes this Pinot from a brand new
vineyard source. Deerheart Vineyard is a very cool site and produces a
Pinot with full flavor and body with plenty of acidity. On the road
between La Honda and San Gregorio Beach in San Mateo County. Prince

2017 Pinot Noir, Lester Family Vineyard, Santa Cruz Mtn
"Moderately dark garnet color in the glass. The aromas build in intensity
over time in the glass, culminating in a force of earth-kissed blackened
cherry righteousness. The harmony of this wine is evident upon first sip
and the long, intense and haunting finish impresses. Mid weight in
style, with an earthy core of black cherry fruit framed by gracious
tannins."

2016 Syrah, Flocchini Vineyard, Petaluma Gap
This is the eight vintage of Flocchini Vineyard Syrah produced by
Waxwing and clearly one of our favorites. We've been dialing back time
in the fermenter to achieve a balanced wine with less tannin that is
more approachable early on. Yet, this wine has impressive density and
feels "chewy" in the mouth. Production: 101 cases.

2016 Syrah, Dierberg Vineyard, Santa Maria Valley
"Creamy silken tannins give this away as Californian, but the profile and
character is pure northern Rhone with layers of violets and black plum
along with peppercorns, minty herbs, cedar and griddle bacon. The
stems add a nervy green bite that keeps things thrilling from start to
finish, that makes you think of Cornas." -93-95 points Grapelive.com, 97

2017 Cabernet Sauvignon, Happy Canyon of SB
"The brilliantly dark garnet/purple Star Lane Cabernet Sauvignon pumps
out some serious fruit, while still being restrained and well balanced
with opulently ripe black fruits, acacia flowers, a dusting of tannins,
being a youthful wine that feels somewhat reassuring and there is a
sensation of spice, herbs and energy with a touch of French oak
sweetness" -
