Great winemakers love the opportunity to try something new, and are particularly captivated by experiments with promising results. One such experiment has resulted in this debut release.  

Starting her career in the 1970's, founding winemaker Eileen Crane had the opportunity to conduct trials with varieties not widely used in sparkling. By far the most intriguing top quality Pinot Gris was not grown in Carneros and so had no place in her portfolio. But in 2012, a local planting produced such outstanding character that Eileen jumped at the chance to develop a new wine based on what she recalled as its brilliant potential. Old memories and the offer of fine Pinot Gris sparked a new concept and a new wine.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
This relative newcomer to the portfolio has quickly become a club favorite. Made in extremely limited quantities, this intriguing wine offers aromas of pear, honeysuckle, and toasted almonds open to a resonating palate of pineapple, honeydew melon, honeycomb and pie crust. This is a serious wine with a beautifully integrated toast that compliments the many fruit layers.
