    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: 0.55 g/100ml

    CHARDONNAY

     

    SONOMA COUNTY

    PINOT NOIR

     

    SONOMA COUNTY

    CALIFORNIA

     

    This wine impresses right away with its deep, dense, brooding fruit. This vintage we have a particularly complex melangé of both red and dark fruits, along with notes of baking spice and subtle toasty oak. The palate does not disappoint with dark fruit flavors of bing cherry and black raspberry leading to a rich, round texture and pleasant, long finish.

     

    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: 14.5%

    Acidity: 0.54 g/100ml

    pH: 3.63

    RS: .23%

    Release date: July 2014

    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%

    Acidity: 0.57g/100ml

    pH: 3.77

    Released: May, 2015

    2013 Vintage

    The 2013 vintage was another great year! The growing season this year was a winemaker's dream: warm to hot days were balanced by cool nights and smaller than average berry size. The final result was beautifully concentrated fruit with great natural balanced.

     

    Chardonnay

    Classic Sonoma aromas and flavors of lemon and green apple with hints of toasted nut and subtle vanilla. Layered and complex with a rich, round mouthfeel and balanced, crisp acidity.

     

    Merlot

    Big and bold with aromas and flavors of ripe plum, black berry with a kiss of spiced. Round, balanced tannins and a full full textured finish.
