When we selected our small parcel in the heart of Carneros 33 years ago, we knew it was destined to produce great wines. Our 2018 Ultra Brut, 2019 Brut Rosé, and 2019 Estate Brut Cuvée embody the depth and breadth of our six estate vineyards translated through masterful winemaking and presented in our signature blue box.
This gift features our...
2018 Ultra Brut: Ultra Brut is our driest sparkling wine, its low dosage highlighting the structure and minerality of our Brut. Very dry and brisk, it is a contemplative wine that appeals to the true aficionado. A mélange of key lime, honeydew melon, ginger, and green apple on the nose leads into a palate dancing with notes of ripe pineapple, fresh pear, yuzu, and lemon méringue.
2019 Brut Rosé: A favorite among our enthusiasts, this wine expresses great balance while emphasizing fruity and floral characteristics. On the nose, the 2019 vintage welcomes the senses with aromas of potpourri, watermelon, honeysuckle, grilled peaches, and oranges. Flavors of tangerine, wild strawberry, peaches, marzipan, and mandarin evoke the bliss of a perfect summer day through the long, silky finish.
2019 Estate Brut: Our Estate Brut is a small cuvée comprised only of grapes grown in our own vineyards. The newest release of our Estate Brut Cuvée features notes of poached pear, lemon zest, yuzu, honeycomb, and fresh apple cobbler with a toasty finish that lingers on the palate, begging for another sip. This winery exclusive has been aged to perfection yet will enjoy additional evolution in the cellar over the next decade.
