Get these last few bottles before they sell out! We are onto the next vintage but still have a few of these great wines... while they last!
A rich, meaty Pinot with deep color. Cola and boysenberry aromas are evident and joined by mouth-filling flavors of plum and bitter chocolate on the palate. Score: 91 points Antonio Galloni's Vinous.
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 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.
A wine of charm and balance. Delicate fruit notes of apple, licorice and melon effortlessly intertwine with a gentle toasty character. The 24 months aging in new Francois Frere oak barrels makes an obvious, but not overpowering statement.
A Santa Maria Valley Pinot Noir meaning it is a wine of great aromatics and character. The key word is balance. A balance of oak and fruit, tannin and acid, elegance and intensity.
End of Vintage. Please see current release.
The Westall Vineyard is another vineyard that we having been using for a few years. In 2016 we made a limited number of cases that was first offered to the tasting room and wine club members. A few cases remain. It is lovely. This is a mid-weight Pinot with a fresh berry/cranberrry quality and subtle earthy tones.
A deep, layered red with aromas and flavors of plums, dried roses and earth. Five years barrel age brought all the compents together harmoniously. Balance between the richness, the bright acidity, and moderated tannins, make this wine a versatile food wine. Enjoy with grilled salmon, roast pork, or mushroom risotto.
It was on the site of the Los Alamos vineyards that Au Bon Climat began making wines 25 years ago. This location is perfect for cool climate varietals.
This is a little known grape variety, the pink-skinned cousin of Grenache Blanc, that is grown in the south of France. It creates an easy drinking wine that has massive appeal, with structure and flavors not unlike an expensive White Hermitage with its stone fruit aromas. From Jim's estate in Los Alamos, the fruit is barrel fermented and aged briefly 8 months in neutral french oak. Since only 1 barrel was made, we are making this available to wine club members only.
Yes, we are having a special on this wonderful, organically farmed wine! Along with the deep berry/cranberry fruit character, this lovely wine shows the whole spice cabinet in aromas and flavors - Chinese five spices, nutmeg, cinnamon, and cardamom, followed with a balanced vanillin note from new French Oak barrels.
