Large Format Bottles
Magnum (1.5 liters) = 2 bottles (750 ml); Double Magnum (3 liters) = 4 bottles; Jeroboam (5 liters) = about 6.5 bottles. These are ideal gifts for the wine connoisseur, anniversaries, and for celebrating with a group of friends.The larger the bottle, the slower it ages. This more gradual maturation process is beneficial to the wine.
A beautifully balanced Chard. Lovely aromas of apricot, lavender and caramel ebb into bright flavors of lemon/lime, and a fresh, spicy finish with vanilla, clove and honeydew melon. The richness and texture are increasing in the bottle.
Currently Out of Stock. Call the winery to inquire.
One of a kind! From the 2013 vintage, this wine represents the best lots of Jim's Pinot Noir: 75% Isabelle, 20% Knox Alexander, and 5% Barham Mendelsohn. Sensational? Yes it is. The bottle is graced with a hand-etched and painted art piece called "Dance of the Pomegranites" by noted artist Yuroz. It is as stunning as the wine. Magnums only. Only 200 available.
Part of our elite "Blue Series", Isabelle is comprised of only the best cuvees each vintage. Consequently, it is consistently our top performing Pinot Noir year to year. Dark, rich, and layered, this regal wine is remarkable now, but will be even more integrated and complex in time.
A beautifully balanced Grenache with the whimsical berry and earth notes in the nose followed by a deeper berry and spice palate. Only a few barrels made of this wine.
How often do you get a chance to enjoy a well aged Chardonnay of this quality - and in magnum? Rich, concentrated fruit entry, creamy texture, leesy complexity, and focused finish.

Isabelle is comprised of the best cuvees each year. The 2012 is a darker, luscious, fruitier Isabelle. It has an intensely perfumed, black raspberry nose with sexy floral and mineral qualities that gain power with air. A wine of impact, it has loads of intensity and power, yet balanced and food friendly. 93 points Robert Parker. 92 points Antonio Galloni's Vinous.
Named after Jim Clendenen's daughter. This wine is a CELLAR SELECTION of the best barrels of single vineyard of Pinot Noirs in the Au Bon Climat cellar from that particular vintage. Our premiere Pinot is dark, rich, luscious. 91 points Stephan Tanzer.
Another gorgeous Pinot from ABC. Bright, focused and beautifully delineated. A layered wine of intense aromatics, precision and focus that exudes energy from start to finish. The 2014 is striking. It's as simple as that. Named after Jim Clendenen's son. Score: 94 points Antonio Galloni's Vinous; Score: 90 points Robert Parker.
