Here are some of our most appreciated and tasted wines.
Lilynoor Blend 2013: Lily Blend is named after the winemaker's first grandchild. It's a classic that keeps getting better. This is a Bordeaux blend featuring estate-grown Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, and Cabernet Franc. Aged in French
Cabernet Sauvignon 2013: Classically structured Cabernet Franc that is the result of several years long pursuit to obtain the exacting taste of Lamorinda's unique, flavorful and earthly Terroir. Dry farming emphasizes the mineral expression of the flavor and aroma of sandstone rock formation that is just beneath the topsoil. The steep incline where the vines are terraced helps naturally drain the water, thus leaving the roots in constant competition. This vintage spent over 60 months in French Oak barrels. Only twenty-eight cases made.
Pinot Noir 2015: This is a very limited production since we made only 12 cases in 2015. The fruit was amazing in its character and aroma. Once completed its Primary fermentation, and pressing very gently with the rubber balloon press, it went into a series of racking to settle the lees, then into a 30 Gallon neutral French Oak barrel to complete Secondary fermentation. Then spent 40 months aging. Bottled in early 2019. its only for those who are very discriminating Pinot Noir Oenophiles.
