The Oberon Sauvignon Blanc is distinctive in style because its fruit is sourced from both the Pope Valley and Carneros Appellations of Napa Valley. This combination of multi-terroir fruit and distinctively different micro climates marries bright natural acidity with layered fresh flavors of green apple, tart kiwi, pear and melon.
Like a mouth watering black cobbler – the wonderful rich toastyness of the crust with the warm juiciness of blackberry and deep black cherry – this Cabernet Sauvignon has a beautiful rounded mouth-feel and rich complex flavors. On the finish, the vibrant berry flavors mingle with spice, a hint of coffee and dark chocolate.
Rich, citrusy, and exquisitely balanced, this vintage of one of our Dutton Ranch single vineyard sites is textbook Russian River Valley Chardonnay. With a complex nose of lemon/lime zest, tangerine, and apricot, the Walker Hill Chardonnay evolves into apple blossom, Meyer lemon, and almond croissant in the mouth.
Delicately pink in hue with a light body, our 2018 Rosé offers fresh aromatics with hints of Honey dew and Ambrosia melon complemented by white peach and followed by balanced acidity giving way to a clean, crisp finish.
Small parcels of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Blanc are hand picked and brought directly to the winery. Each parcel is pressed and fermented separately, creating an extensive selection of base wines to choose from. Winemaker Keith Hock then tastes each component and selects those base wines that show potential to produce exceptional wine. The cuvée is placed en tirage for secondary fermentation in the bottle prior to disgorgement. Finally, a small percentage of older reserve wine is included in the liqueur d'expedition adding further complexity and texture.
