2013 Oregon Shea Vineyard Pinot Noir $60.00
Dick Shea planted his first vines in the late 80’s, just a few short years after Ken Bernards moved from his birthplace in the Willamette Valley to Napa to work his first harvest. The vineyards have grown, along with Shea’s reputation for quality, and today his vines produce a disproportionately large percentage of the most renowned Willamette Pinot Noirs.
2013 Coombsville Haynes Vineyard Chardonnay
Brand new fall release! Shows the exceptional structure of the 1966 planted Old Wente Chardonnay planted in the vineyard Ancien calls home! Notes of baked apple, lemon meringue with hints of melon, orange blossom, and citrus fill the senses on first visit to this wine. The palate is bright and fresh, and the richly textured mouth-feel is expansive and builds through the finish.
2013 Sta. Rita Hills Fiddlestix Vineyard Pinot Noir $50.00
