An homage to Josephine Tychson, the first women to build and operate a winery in California, first established in 1886. Pale gold in color, the nose reveals a perfume of melon, peach, and nectarine with subtle hints of coconut oil and wet gravel. Rich and creamy on the palate, the Josephine’s flavors of pear and carmelized green apple are kept fresh by the wine’s balancing acidity. The wine finishes long with nuances of citrus oil, minerality, and just the right touch of cedar and toasted vanilla. A powerful expression of Napa Chardonnay that would pair exquisitely with Mussels steamed in a lemongrass coconut broth.
The spirit of France’s Southern Rhône is captured beautifully with this classic blend of 60% Grenache Blanc and 40% Roussanne. Sourced from a dry farmed, high elevation vineyard in Paso Roble’s Adelaida AVA, the Raphael is a rich, powerful wine with opulent flavor and complexity galore.
White gold in color, the nose is perfumed with honeyed pear, wet slate, and orange blossom. The palate delivers the fruit and texture of a classic white Rhône with juicy orchard fruit flavors, rich creamy texture and bright firming acid. The wine’s acid carries the finish with bright tones of orange zest, mineral and a slight note of acacia. A stirring combination of Old World complexity, first class farming, and California sunshine.
A truly unique blend of 80% Chardonnay with 20% Sauvignon Blanc. Our McPherson comes from a cool vineyard site with thin, sandy soils, just what you need to bring freshness and complexity in Chardonnay and Sauv Blanc. But it's the blend that brings out the magic in both of the grapes,
showing off the rich creamy texture of the Chardonnay in perfect harmony with the bright tropical nuances of the Sauv Blanc, a match made in wine heaven!
The wine’s white platinum color lights up the room when you pour it. On the nose your senses are flooded with aromas of baked apple and citronella with subtle notes of gravel and fresh herbs. The Chardonnay dominates the nose but the
Sauv Blanc takes center stage on the palate with a delicious mix of bright, tangy citrus and prickly pear flavors. And the finish is gorgeous, cool green apple and lime flavors come through with a creamy mouthfeel and high-toned chiseled acidity, definitely showing the best from both grapes!
We should all drink more Riesling, life is simply better with it around. And the beauty and versatility of Riesling is on full display with this gem from Washington’s Columbia Valley. Platinum gold in color, the nose is honeyed peach and floral with a crisp undertone of zested lemon. The palate is zingy with a mix of green apple and melon complemented by vibrant minerality and a pleasing hint of Kabinett-like sweetness. The finish stays crisp and clean and offers limitless food pairing options. Truly a wine for any and all occasions!
