CHALK HILL SAUVIGNON BLANC, 2007

The Sauvignon Blanc plantings are of several clones, each providing a different facet to the wine’s flavor profile. Some blocks provide aromatic perfume and tropical flavors while others deliver forward stone fruit and exotic minerality. Each year, the wines are barreled in individual lots with biweekly batonage before being assembled into the final blend. Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate: 90 points – December, 2008

LIBERTY SCHOOL CUVÉE, 2007

A blend of Syrah, Petite Sirah, Grenache, Mourvèdre and Viognier, this cuvee harmoniously melds the best characteristics of each varietal to make a complex and unique blend. It displays bright red fruit flavors on the nose. With accents of smoke and pepper, the fruit-forward blend shows fine grain tannins which are reminiscent of wines from the southern Rhone Valley. The predominant grape, Syrah, shows off its jammy, strawberry and plum-like flavors. Petite Sirah adds deep ruby color and tannin structure. Smaller amounts of Grenache soften the wine and add needed balance. Mourvèdre brings an element of spice to the blend, while small amounts of Viognier add floral aromatics and color stabilization.  Well balanced and full-bodied.
