    SAUVIGNON BLANC

     

    NORTH COAST

    CALIFORNIA

     

    Enticing bright, fresh aromas of mixed citrus, pineapple and green apple are complemented by subtle, yet classic, grassy notes to yield an unmistakable Sauvignon Blanc nose. On the palate, we have vibrant citrus and tropical flavors alongside perfectly balanced acidity, yielding both a refreshing, easy-drinking quality as well as amazing versatility at the table with food.

     

    100% cold stainless steel fermentation with no malolactic fermentation to preserve varietal character. A small portion spent time on the lees to build richness and texture.

    Blend: 100% Sauvignon Blanc

    Alcohol: 13.5%

    Acidity: 0.54 g/100ml

    pH: 3.49

    PINOT NOIR

     

    SONOMA COUNTY

    CALIFORNIA

     

    Leaping from the glass are bright red fruit aromas of Bing cherry and cranberry with subtle, yet complex, notes of exotic spice. On the palate, the fruit shifts toward a deep, strawberry-rhubarb jam that fans out with a smooth and velvety texture. This expressive palate is balanced with refreshing acidity that carries the flavors through a long, lingering finish. A notably elegant and well-balanced vintage.

     

    Fermentation takes place in traditional open top tanks with gentle punch downs as well as closed top tanks where careful pumping over helps create more fruit flavors and aromas. The wine is then aged in a combination of tank and barrel on light lees for up to 10 months with occasional stirring to bring out richness.

     

    TECHNICAL DATA

    Blend: 100% Pinot Noir

    Alcohol: 14.2%

    Acidity: 0.56 g/100ml

    pH: 3.56

    Released: April, 2016

    RED BLEND

     

    NORTH COAST

    CALIFORNIA

     

    Our 2013 Steelhead Red is a statement to the art of blending and our belief that "the sum is greater than its parts". On the nose, ripe dark cherry, plum, and blackberry aromas are accented by the slightest kiss of toasty oak and complex earthy notes. Balanced acid and very fine tannins provide just a touch of youthful grip in the long, lingering aftertaste.

     

    Classic old world and new world winemaking techniques were utilized with fermentation in open and closed tanks. Lots were individually fermented to add unique characteristics to the blend. The wine is then aged for 12 months in a combination of new and used French oak barrels.

     

    TECHNICAL DATA

    Blend: 43% Zinfandel, 22% Syrah, 13% Carignane, 9% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Petite Sirah

    Alcohol: 14.5%
