Offers full-on fruit, with a large, fleshy core of mulberry, boysenberry and loganberry flavors backed by singed apple wood and dark licorice notes. A brambly echo through the finish provides needed energy. Drink now through 2030.

This newly released AVA expression features grapes from vineyards located in the warmer Boonville area, from organic sources in Philo and from the cool Deep End, making them true reflections of the primary grape-growing zones of the Anderson Valley. Bristling with white-peppered cranberries, Italian herbs, cherry pipe tobacco, and sweet soil. Acidity is racy, lifting pomegranate, red licorice, and forest floor to a high pedestal of intensity.

Coming from Mendocino, an area slightly less impacted by the heat, the bright yellow/straw-colored 2022 Chardonnay Anderson Valley is lifted with a perfume of citrus blossoms, fresh herbs, green apple, and wet stones. Medium to full-bodied, it’s elegant, clean, and balanced, and it has a good finish. It should drink well over the next 5-7 years.

This is the first vintage of the 2022 Pinot Noir Anderson Valley. Coming from three vineyards -- Carney Ranch in Boonville, Dash Vineyard, and Pinoli Vineyard – it was aged for 10 months in 42% new French oak. It pours a medium ruby color and has a great mountainous feel, with lovely fresh herbs, wild raspberries, brambly herbs, wildflowers, and woodsy spices. Medium-bodied on the palate, it’s lovely and refined, with a clean, silky texture and a mouthwatering finish. It’s very attractive now but will improve over the next 7-8 years if given a chance.

Mulled strawberry, raspberry and damson plum notes carry a pretty rose petal accent in this charming red, while a sandalwood accent frames the finish.
