                                  It offers up a confiture of black cherry and black raspberry along with mineral notes

                                  will benefit from 5-7 years of cellaring.” – Robert Parker’s Wine advocate, aug/09

                                 New vintage; now under screwcap. The 2007 vintage began early and produced a small,
                                 low-yielding crop. The wines are supple with good definition and early approachability.
                                 Pronounced dark plum, mocha and licorice aromas carry through on a velvety palate
                                 with intensity that comes only from low-yielding shiraz vines. – Winemaker’s notes

distinctly medium bodied personality.” – James Halliday australian Wine Companion 2010

dark berry flavors, wrapped in a veil of tannins that have a light grip. Hints at sage and
bay leaf as the finish persists impressively.” – Wine Spectator, Oct. 15/08

supported amply by well-handled toasty oak; the palate is also dark and thickly
textured; a complex, well constructed wine.” – James Halliday australian Wine
Companion 2010
(2004) 90 points “Deep ruby. Powerful cherry and plum aromas are deepened by dark
chocolate and espresso, not to mention a sexy undertone of oak spice. Fleshy and
smooth, with deep, sweet dark fruit liqueur flavors, supple texture and good mineral
lift. Juicy black raspberry and cherry compote flavors carry through a long, sappy
finish. This is already very easy to drink.” – Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar,
July/08
(2004) 90 points “Matured 18 months in French oak, this rich, velvety-textured Shiraz
shows plenty of vanilla influence as a result. But there’s also plenty of ripe blackberry
fruit, and the overall impression is of a lush, fruity, wine that would make a lovely
steakhouse red.” – Wine Enthusiast Magazine, april 2009

chévere cabernet sauvignon (colchagua)
after producing some of California’s most highly sought after cabernets from its
vineyards on Sonoma Mountain for 20 years, Patrick Campbell of laurel Glen Vineyards
took an exploratory trip to Chile in 1995 and thus was born Chevere. a portion of
the proceeds from the sales of this rich and deep cabernet will be donated to the
lambi Fund to support their vital work. In the southeast corner of the Colchagua
Valley lies one of the few actual hillside plantings in all of Chile; Chévere! begins
here on its steep and rocky slopes. While Chévere! is full with the soft and delicious
texture we associate with Chilean cabernet, its higher level of color, tannin, and fruit
concentration underscore its hillside origin.

introduce serious but delicious medium full flavors brimming with dry extract and a
sappy mouth feel on the classy, deep and gorgeously long finish. a truly lovely effort

quickly came to an agreement and chose the barrel which was so obstinately defended

Probably the first hint that Saintsbury might turn out to be a bit different from
other wineries was when Dick Ward and David Graves chose to make a 1979 Santa
Barbara barrel-fermented dry riesling as one of their first wines, a bottling that
didn’t exactly have consumer demand behind it. In the more than a quarter century
since jumping in to wine, Dick and Dave have always believed that innovation and a
critical look at the vineyard, terroir and winemaking is the best route to increasing
quality. Experimentation in the vineyard and in the cellar led to the early adoption
of new pinot noir clones, the acceptance of new and intricate irrigation regimens,
and critical evaluations of the impact of filtering and must manipulation, all results
of a “philosophy of investigation” that have helped make Saintsbury one of america’s
foremost pinot noir producers. according to the Wine Spectator’s Matt Kramer,
Saintsbury not only “single-handedly demolished the old assertion that California
cannot create pinot noirs of a Burgundian standard of delicacy and finesse,” but
also “no winery has been more methodical in its investigation and pursuit of newly
available pinot noir clones than Saintsbury.”

“garnet” Pinot noir
New vintage; now under screwcap. Since 1983, Saintsbury has captured the charm
of lighter pinot noir lots by combining them and bottling them separately. Grapes
are carefully sorted into small lots and after fermentation, the wines are barrel-aged
separately. In early spring, the lots selected to become Garnet are assembled.

                                   show real class for their modest prices, and the single-vineyard wines are a step up
