Au Bon Climat
Distinctive wines of vision and harmony. An homage to Burgundy, Au Bon Climat features many renditions of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Blanc, with balance and character critical elements in every wine. These wines age beautifully because of their balance and restraint. For older vintages or large format bottles, see menu.
A beautifully crafted wine of earthy berry fruit and depth with the tight structure, spice and mineral notes singular to this vineyard location. It is a promising beauty needing more time to show off all it has to offer. Extremely limited.
The flavor profile for this well structured Chardonnay is in the subtle pear and apple realm with accents of lavender and anise from the time in barrel. There are citrusy notes of lemon and orange along with a minerality. Additional flavors and aromas will emerge over time.
This vineyard has hit its stride producing marvelous Chardonnays year after year. On the palate, classic Chardonnay flavors of apple, citrus and vanilla go on and on. Serve with shellfish, Cornish game hen, or alfredo pasta with lobster.

A wine of incredible aromatics and depth with gorgeous cherry, cranberry, cola and earthy spice notes that carry through to the palate. It will continue to age and become more intriguing for years to come. Score: 93 points Wine Enthusiast Magazine.
From one of our best vineyard sources, this fleshy yet structured wine has a dark fruit character, such as plums and cherries along with the signature spice this location provides.
The extraordinary fruit is sorted vigorously in the organically farmed vineyard, and by fermenting slowly, we extracted pretty Pinot flavors. Along with the berry/cranberry fruit character, this lovely wine shows the whole spice cabinet in aromas and flavors. You will find Chinese five spices, nutmeg, cinnamon, and cardamom, followed with a balanced vanillin note from new French Oak barrels.
The Westall Vineyard is another new vineyard that we having been using for a few years. In 2015 we made a limited number of cases that will first be offered to the tasting room and wine club members. It is lovely. This is a mid-weight Pinot with a fresh berry/cranberrry quality and subtle earthy tones.
An absolutely fabulous wine of amazing fruit, richness and depth! This new vineyard first earned its wings with the 2013 vintage with a vineyard designated bottling of its own at ABC. Only 100 cases produced - get it while you can.
Insanely good! This deep, well structured red is gorgeous showing a wonderful berry, cherry and spice fruit aroma that carries through to a full palate. Only 140 cases were made.
