    Wine Selection

  • 2014 Reserve Chardonnay

    This vintage, we sourced our fruit from Dutton Ranch, which is located less than ten miles from the Pacific Ocean. It is comprised of more than 75 separate vineyards planted in the coolest areas of the appellation, where fog rolls in every afternoon and lowers the temperature by 30-40 degrees each evening. This climate pattern not only allows the fruit to ripen more slowly and accumulate more flavor concentration, it helps the grapes retain an ideal amount of natural acidity, which is a vital to creating complex Chardonnay....

  • 2015 Reserve Pinot Noir

    This is the first time we've had the opportunity to source grapes from the Martinelli family's King Ranch Vineyard. George and Lee Martinelli are multi-generation winegrowers who take great pride in their vineyards, producing some of Russian River Valley's finest fruit. The wine from our 2015 vintage delivers a rich, full-bodied palate that offers excellent length. Beautiful aromas of black raspberries, kirsch, lavender, and star anise give way to lush, juicy flavors of cherries and strawberries emboldened by hints of mocha, toasted spices and an edge of bourbon vanilla from French oak barrel...

We thought we had hit the jackpot with the 2012 vintage only to have another incredible season in 2013. Moderate temperatures throughout summer allowed the fruit to hang a little longer than normal and since the vines were optimized from having good weather two years in a row....

  • 2013 Archimedes


    The discoveries of the Greek mathematician Archimedes nearly 2,000 years ago established laws of physics still viable today. Francis Coppola's grandfather, Agostino, so greatly admired the intellect and ingenuity of the mathematician that he gave his first son the same name. Today, we pay homage to Coppola's Uncle Archimedes with our new flagship wine. Archimedes is a Cabernet Sauvignon that derives its alluring spice quality from the small amount of very unique Knights Valley Cabernet Franc that is added to the blend. This fruit is highly aromatic and extremely dark, which is atypical of the...
