2013 Tapanappa Tiers Vineyard Chardonnay

A refined and subtle Chardonnay, the elegance of this wine is reminiscent of the great examples found in Burgundy. With stone fruit and melon on the nose, it has a crisp, dry finish that is both a little nutty and pleasantly savory.

2010 Tapanappa Whalebone Vineyard Cabernet Shiraz

Dark and brooding, there’s a powerful ripe-plum scent to this wine. Cabernet can be a bit hollow on its own and the Shiraz adds a little spice and improves the texture. There’s sweet fruit but the overall impression is one of a saline dryness.

2013 Tapanappa Foggy Hill Vineyard Pinot Noir

The vines that produce the grapes for this wine come from Dijon clones, and the wine has a nuanced and Burgundian feel. The nose is spicy with some oak. Once sipped, a classic red-fruit structure courses through the wine. But, above all, it’s light and fresh.
