2017 Sauvignon Blanc
Our flagship wine, the Tradition Sauvignon Blanc elevates the purity of the variety through stainless steel fermentation and ten months of sur lie aging. The result is an expression of bright citrus such as lime peel, white stonefruit and green apple fragrances. Our vineyards highlight the ideal characteristics for Sauvignon Blanc with mineral texture, brilliant acidity and a fresh finish.
2016 Sauvignon Blanc
Hand-harvested, whole cluster, single-vineyard fruit was gently pressed and cold settled overnight. The winemakers fermented the juice in French oak puncheons and small amphorae, and, following fermentation, stirred the lees weekly for two months, then tapered the stirring to biweekly, then monthly, to enhance the mouthfeel of the wine without losing the intense aromas. These efforts resulted in an extraordinary Sauvignon Blanc—Les Pionniers.
2015 Red Wine
A Bordeaux-style blend, Innovant captures the elegance and distinct character of Sonoma County terroir. Carefully selected lots of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot from our Alexander Valley vineyards offer aromas of intense blue fruits, cola and dusty red raspberry. Flavors of savory nutmeg and spices combine effortlessly with a silky mouthfeel and long tannins while mountain fruits complement the bright acid of this wine. Enjoy now or cellar for 10+ years.
2012 Red Wine
Our Alliance red wine invokes the nature of the adventurous explorer, showcasing lesser-known mountain vineyards and bringing them to life. Captivating elements that are both delicate and robust, this wine comes from our mountain vineyard high upon Spring Mountain in Napa Valley, with elevations ranging from 1,100 to 1,900 feet. Crafted in the muscular spirit of left-bank Bordeaux, this red wine blend reveals perfumed notes of fresh violet and blackberry that culminate in a distinctive, silky finish with elegant, smooth tannins.
2015 Red Wine
Harmonie is the purest, most elegant and well-balanced Bordeaux-style blend we could craft. The 2015 wine is seductive and intriguing. Spices and hits of lavender accompanied by dark blue almost black fruits provide finesse and balance on the nose. An elegant body of chewy raspberry, cherry and sandalwood combine with dark chocolate and soft tannins creating an almost endless finish
2014 Cabernet Sauvignon
Révélation is our signature wine, a true Pauillac-inspired Cabernet Sauvignon. The hallmarks of the 2014 are balance and depth. First, the nose releases traditional varietal notes of black fruits and brown sugar, licorice, and cassis, with the fine tannins produced on the mountain, reflecting the vine-ripened flavors that developed until we harvested in early September. This intense yet elegant wine will age effortlessly for 20 years or more.
