    Wine Selection

  • 2014 Nancie Chardonnay


    94 points, Robert Parker 93 points, Antonio Galloni Vintage conditions performed like a magnifying-glass, focusing flavors, drawing out layers and amplifying both richness and mineral intensity. The 2014 delivers exciting notes of fresh pear, mandarin orange, and ripe peach. On the palate, stone-fruit melds into wildflower honey and creme-brulee. Driven acidity harmonizes with fullness to present a clean yet intense and thrilling flavor profile....

  • 2013 Two Brothers Pinot Noir


    90 points, Robert Parker 91 points, Antonio Galloni The 2013 vintage was one of focused flavors, concentration, and great length. The density of 2013 is immediately evident on the nose, with dark cherry, ripe raspberry, and hints of fresh plum. It is a joy to see how the combination of unique vineyards have come together to make such a dynamic wine and an increasingly distinct Two Brothers....

  • 2014 Cuvee Moriah


    92 points, Robert Parker 94 points, Antonio Galloni The next evolution in our Cuvee Moriah reintroduces Mourvedre, taking the already exotic 2014 vintage and adding wild herbs and cured meats. The 2014 bottling is a great match between the delicate fruit flavors of pomegranate and rhubarb from the Dry Stack Vineyard Grenache and the structuring mouth-feel and savory notes of caraway seed and cardamom spices, with additional hints of red currants and fresh violets throughout from the Kopf Vineyard Mourvedre....

  • 2014 Cuvee Christine Syrah


    93 points, Robert Parker 93 points, Antonio Galloni Like a Chef in the kitchen, we assemble unique Syrah lots from multiple sites to create texture, mouth-feel, and intrigue. The nose opens with fig-paste, dates, star anise, and garam-masala -- a combination of aromatics that is alluring yet extremely subtle and elegant. The mouthfeel is well knit and plush, creating a silky texture that is extremely pleasing now. Freshness imparted from our cooler-climate vineyards provides an uplifting finish that will weave well with your favorite fare....

  • 2014 Kobler Family Vineyard Syrah


    94+ points, Robert Parker 96 points, Antonio Galloni For this single-vineyard wine, we co-fermented 90% Syrah and 10% Viognier. The Syrah and Viognier vineyards sit adjacent to each other, and simultaneously experience the ebbs and flows of the vintage, most importantly bathed by the cool coastal fog. The Viognier counterbalances the salami flavored Syrah with flavors of gooseberries, white peaches and chutney, while providing the desirable minerality that makes the mid-palate sing....
