"Entirely produced from Musqué clone, the Church Vineyard sauvignon blanc undergoes partial malolactic fermentation. Barrel fermented for four months in mostly-neutral French oak. This is a sauvignon blanc for chardonnay lovers. Orange Julius, Mexican fruit salad and minty fragrances. Flavors are deep and tropical with mango, papaya, Key Lime pie and lemon verbena. One of our truest expressions to date."

"The tiny four-acre Coombsville Vineyard produces powerful and expressive fruit. Head trained, spur pruned and dry farmed, its vines produce limited yields of the highest quality—worthy of our single vineyard collection. Black plum, mulberry, tarragon and lead fragrances. Black and blue fruits persist with purity and energy and give way to lilacs and violets, hoisin and crushed stone. Dense, chewy and with explosive flavor. Enjoy now with decanting. We encourage cellaring for fifteen plus years."

"The 2018 vintage is the debut release of the GnR Vineyard single-vineyard cabernet sauvignon. Planted to clones 7 and 337 in east to west rows in 2003 on less-than-three acres of gravelly, loam soils in the Oak Knoll District. The two clones bring intensity and suppleness to the wine. Aromas of chocolate-covered strawberries, dark-red fruit and peppermint. The texture is broad and expansive on the palate with ripe blackberries and raspberries unfolding with notes of graphite, rose petals, spiced coffee and fresh, savory herbs."

"The 2018 vintage is the debut release of the R/D Vineyard single-vineyard cabernet sauvignon. Planted mostly to clone 7 in east to west rows in 2002 on less-than-four acres containing rich volcanic soils in the Oak Knoll District. A pronounced bouquet of currant and Chambord with hints of tanned parchment and earthiness. A powerful, well-structured cabernet sauvignon with rich, lively, dark fruits—notably elderberry and boysenberry. The energy persists in a long, ethereal finish with s’mores and cigar box."

"The debut vintage of this cabernet sauvignon from the Calistoga AVA, Napa Valley comes from deep, fertile slopes of our small, 10-acre estate in the northeastern Calistoga benchlands. Red winter fruit aromas of plum and pomegranate are tinged with hints of tobacco leaf and old leather. The palate is focused with cassis, wild blue flowers and dusty minerality opening to brambly berries, cocoa nib and holiday spices. The texture is sturdy with dusty tannins and a broad, enveloping finish."

“The merlot vines that John planted at Crane Vineyard in the Oak Knoll District in 1996 continue to gain in maturity and stature. The 2019 vintage displays the breadth that is possible from this cornerstone estate. Aromas of pomegranate and dried blueberry are underscored by violets, mocha, black licorice and baking spices. An expressive palate shows flavors of baked boysenberry, ripe olallieberry, sweet tobacco and lavender. Dusty tannins linger on a structured finish."

Vintage notes: Abundant early rainfall, a relatively warm summer and moderate harvest weather set the tone for an excellent merlot vintage at Crane Vineyard in 2019. The reliable cooling effect from San Pablo Bay played its perennial role in fostering pure varietal merlot character, a hallmark of this site.

"The twenty-five-year-old vines I planted in 1996 on the Crane Vineyard produce merlot with increasingly expressive maturity. Aromas of raspberry bread pudding, mint and mocha aromas are well complemented with spice. The fruit is powerful with layered flavors of black cherry, blueberry compote and dried pomegranate edged with baking spices, blue flowers and cocoa. Displaying notable structure, the tannins soften to round edges on the palate, giving way to a silky finish. The 2018 vintage is a beautiful balance of energy and elegance."

"Despite being less than one acre, the Hermitage clone at Crane Vineyard continues to be the dominant force in this vineyard-designated syrah. Classic varietal aromas lead the way: dark fruits, lilac, cedar, charcuterie and herbs de Provençe. Dense flavors of blackberry, boysenberry, blueberry and black cherry expand with accents of smoked game, dark earth, graphite and cardamom. Grainy tannins bring the wine to a resounding conclusion. A tour-de-force syrah from one of the first vineyards John planted in the Oak Knoll District nearly 25 years ago. "

Vintage notes: A perfect confluence of conditions brought the Crane Vineyard syrah to an impressive conclusion in 2019. Plentiful winter rainfall, a warm summer and a mild harvest season paved the way for a balance of richness and vibrancy, including the savory cooler-climate syrah qualities that make this wine such a standout.

"Less than one acre of “Hermitage” clone syrah on the Crane Vineyard has become the dominant expression in this wine. On the nose, powerful fresh blackberry, Chambord and preserved fig are followed by black pepper, olive and brisket. The wine is compact and opens up beautifully with time. On the palate dark berry and plum mingle with rosemary, star anise and bacon notes with velvety tannins. The result is a wine of incredible balance: tension and energy, plush and structured, sweet and savory."
