Winemaker Jean-Pierre Wolff's tasting notes on current vintages

2015 Chardonnay Old Vine
The 2015 Chardonnay Old Vines has a forward nose of tropical fruit and a rich mid-palate with smooth buttery undertones. The wine is well balanced with a touch of sweet almond and citrusy acidity on light toasted oak providing for a long complex finish.

2015 Dry Alsatian Style Riesling
A fruity wine with light tropical and floral notes interlaced with lime and orange blossoms. The cool climate acidity combined with a hint of sweetness exhibits a long finish to this elegant and balanced wine.

2015 White Wolff
This aromatic white is a blend of Rhone and Spanish varieties comprised of Marsanne, Albarino and Grenache Blanc.  It has layers of flavors including pear, honeydew melon, citrus, floral notes and minerality.  The finish is zesty and bright for a refreshing easy to drink white wine.

2016 Rosé Wolff
The Rosé is produced from 100% Grenache grapes. This dry French Provence style wine provides a predominance of ripe strawberry flavor and rose petals.The finish is refreshing with clean acidity. 

2014 Pinot Noir
This traditional Burgundian style wine exhibits black cherry and strawberry notes. A hint of cola, white pepper and earthy undertones adds to the complexity. The finish has good acidity backbone with light toasted oak and refined tannins.

2014 Syrah
The 2014 Syrah exhibits the Edna Valley grown ocean marine influence taste profile of a Northern Rhone style cool climate Syrah. The resulting flavors include stewed black plums, roasted meat and a mid-palate of white pepper and spice. The finish is well balanced with refined tannins, a trace of smoke and minerality providing for a rich full bodied red wine.

2016 Petite Sirah
A well balanced, full bodied red wine with enormously ripe and extracted flavors, huge in cassis, roasted black cherry and wild berry with crushed pepper tones and spices. The structured finish has firm tannins with toasted oak.

2014 Red Wolff
A rich red wine blend comprised of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Grenache and Nebbiolo. This blend provides layers of flavors without pursuing a dominating variety distinction. This red wine has vibrant mouth feel, complexity and is easy to drink.

2016 Teroldego
Teroldego is a rarely grown grape in the U.S. originating from the Northern Italian Tyrolean area of Trentino-Alto Adige. This big and rich inky dark red wine is seriously lively, exhibits fruity flavors of dark berry and aromatic wood spice with a finish of structured tannins with bright acidity.
