WINEMAKER'S BLENDS: It starts with a blank canvas.
Each vintage, our team of progressive winemakers selects the best grapes they can find in the premier vineyards of Napa, Sonoma, Monterey and San Joaquin counties. Led by Winemaker Aaron Piotter, they craft modern varietal wines that are blended across appellations to illuminate the best attributes of each region.
Our Winemaker's Blend Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Zinfandel and Red Blend wines meld flavors from multiple appellations, each of which contributes unique characteristics to the final blends. Grapes from Napa give our Cabernet its red jam flavors, while Sonoma grapes give our Merlot its fresh blackberry undertones. Monterey County grapes bring an unmistakable lemon cream character to our Chardonnay, and the warm-climate grapes of Lodi in San Joaquin County round out our Zinfandel with a soft mouthfeel.
Our winemakers have the freedom to search for the right grapes in the right places. This translates to wines that are elegant, yet structured. Wines that balance flavor with finesse. Wines that deliver consistent quality year after year, regardless of variations in vintage.
