Cabernet Sauvignon

100% Estate Grown, Mount George Estate Vineyard – Napa Valley

Cave-aged for 22 months

100% French oak (60% new barrels)

Tasting Notes::

The 2013 vintage is expected to be one of Napa’s best, with impressive wines displaying excellent structure and having substantial longevity. The 2013 Audtion cabernet is dense and concentrated with cassis, violets, and dark chocolate notes on the nose. The firm tannins are kept juicy with rich black currant, bing cherry, and toasty brown sugar. The finish is long and fresh with rose pedal, pipe tobacco, and a lint of wet forest floor all wrapped in an envelope of creamy French oak. 14.8% Alc., 5.9 g/L TA, 3.69 pH

Wine Enthusiast 91 pts – This is a purely varietal, estate-grown wine from Mount George, cave-aged for nearly two years in all-new French oak. Generously expansive on the palate, it offers full-bodied richness around a thoughtful layering of clove, juicy black cherry and savory red currant, lingering on the finish.

The 2015 vintage Cabernet Sauvignon displays excellent structure and will provide substantial longevity, improving with age. The 2015 Carnal cabernet is dense and concentrated with dark chocolate notes on the nose with firm tannins kept juicy with rich black currant and bing cherry. This wine provides a long finish after being aged for 26 months in 50% new French Oak. 14.1% Alc.

Chardonnay

Carneros – Napa Valley

Cave-aged for 10 months

100% French oak (50% new barrels)

The Audition Chardonnay is created from premium grapes sourced from the Carneros district in Napa Valley. The cool temperatures caused by the proximity to San Pablo Bay create the climate consistency that Chardonnay vines thrive in.

Tasting Notes:

The 2015 Alyris Audition Chardonnay brings aromas of white nectarine, cereal grains, and honeysuckle. Core flavors of peach, green apple, ripe fig, and fresh lavender are held together with a rich and smooth structure that lasts through the finish.  A well-balanced wine packed with intense, powerful flavors.

Zinfandel

Cave-aged for 22 months

100% French and Hungarian oak barrels

14.8% Alc.

Fresh aromas of blackberries, violets, and spicy vanilla begin the journey. Initial bright berry notes are followed by deeper tones of roasted plum and fresh earth. The mid palate is alive, peppery, integrated and balanced with flavors of black raspberry, licorice, white pepper, and clove spice. The long lingering finish has juicy round tannins and clean acidity that finish gracefully.
