St Clement Napa Valley Chardonnay, 2008
This Chardonnay is barrel fermented in 30 percent new French oak, and approximately 85 percent of the blend through malolactic fermentation. The finished wine shows luscious aromas of ripe red apple, cantaloupe, fresh citrus and vanilla bean. On the palate, a creamy mouth feel introduces flavors of honeydew, pear tart tatin, lime zest and vanilla spice. The wine finishes with vibrant acidity and a touch of minerality.

Etude Pinot Noir, 2008
True ruby in color, the 2008 Pinot Noir bottling offers aromas of strawberries and sous bois mingled with aromatic woods. Hints of sandalwood and cedar on the nose are followed by elegant fruit flavor on the palate. Berry, plum and a cherry core introduce the wine. The saturated cherry and comfitures notes are rounded out by brown spice, clove and oak toast on the finish. A lushness arises from the warmer growing season, creating a lively and defined Pinot Noir with freshness and length.

Stickybeak Cabernet Sauvignon, 2009
The aromas are perfumed violets, blackberries, dark cherries and cedar spice.
