Vivier Mendocino Chardonnay

The Mendocino Appellation, north of Healdsburg is home to rugged coastlines, breathtaking beaches, majestic redwood forests and a slower pace than most of the Bay Area. The little vineyard planted to Wente clones in the early 80’s, sits along the Russian River between the Mayacamas and Coastal Mountain range.

2016 Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

Sourcing from three small vineyards in the Petaluma Gap region of the Sonoma Coast, where cool marine breezes clear the hillsides of morning fog, this Pinot Noir thoughtfully blends the best characteristics of each plot of land into a layered, complex whole. Aging in seasoned French Oak and bottling without fining or filtration give this wine balance without sacrificing an ounce of nuance.

Tasting Notes: Beautiful perfume, silky and supple. Great precision of fruit and spice in this delicate wine, with cherry fruit, earthiness, floral and exotic, and a long, elegant finish.



Vintage: 2016
Cellar Notes: Perfect for the impatient oenophile, this wine is ready to be enjoyed now, and will also age gracefully for 6 to 9 years.
Label Notes: The picture was taken in the late 1890s at the bottom of the Pommard “les Rugiens” Premier Cru vineyard. The Gentleman is an ancestor of Stéphane’s elderly neighbor.

Price: $38 a bottle
