This wine opens with invigorating notes of citrus, kumquat and flint. The palate picks up flavors of orange blossoms, and white stone fruit. Fleshy on entry, the palate evolves to a round, river rock minerality with a long, creamy, dolce de leche finish. This makes the perfect pairing for Vietnamese spring rolls, grilled prawns, or four cheese pizzas.
Our Napa Valley Barrel Fermented Chardonnay opens with welcoming aromas of creme brulee, allspice and jasmine. On the palate, a touch of minerality is accompanied by notes of Granny Smith apple, apricot and lychee nut. A long, lingering finish makes this wine a perfect pairing for seafood pasta with cream sauce or a soft, mild cheese.
A beautiful rose gold in the glass, our 2015 Small Lot Collection Pinot Noir Rosť is bursting with aromas of fresh strawberry, white peach and a touch of rose petal. Flavors of cranberry, white plum and vanilla with hints of soft floral and white pepper are well balanced with bright acidity. Well-structured and dry, this is a clean, crisp wine that will pair well with light dishes like quiche or flakey fish.
The 2014 vintage of our Small Lot Malbec opens with enticing aromas of black cherry and plum with tarry notes of white pepper. This dense, juicy wine is made in a Bordeaux style, with a velvety rich, mouth-filling structure accented by delicate floral notes. Big and luxuriant in the glass, our 2014 Malbec is a wine to be enjoyed with a variety of hearty dishes.
Our 2013 Petite Sirah is a robust, powerful wine that shows a deep, dark purple in the glass and exhibits aromas of dark fruits, huckleberry and brambles. Upon the palate this big, chewy wine has flavors of blackberry and cardamom spice with a sweetness to the fruit that carries it through from start to finish. Well-balanced and imposing, this wine is ready to drink but will also age beautifully and is the perfect complement to a delicious marbled steak.
Our 2013 Small Lot Napa Valley Meritage opens with aromas of Madagascar vanilla, black cardamom and a touch of star anise. Jammy fruit flavors of cassis and brown sugar accented with dark chocolate and allspice seamlessly spread across the palate. Silky, well balance tannins and a full, round mouthfeel make this the perfect accompaniment to traditional pasta dishes with marinara sauce.

Available only in the Red Room, this exclusive blend of noble Bordeaux varietals grown in esteemed St. Helena vineyards is a stunning expression of opulence in a glass.
