2012 Reserve Chardonnay

The 2012 Reserve Chardonnay has wonderful apple, pear and lemon meringue aromas with toasty vanilla and pastry notes. The wine has a rich mouth-feel with crisp, well balanced acidity which will pair favorably with a variety of foods. Try grilled halibut with a lemon beurre-blanc sauce, creamy risotto or delicious lobster dipped in butter.

2011 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon

Full bodied and richly textured, this vintage displays intense aromas and flavors of black currant, roasted herbs, licorice and cocoa, with a smooth, lingering finish. If you have access to a cool dark place, lay some bottles of this 2011 Reserve down for three to six years and patience will reward you.

2007 Symmetry Red Blend

The 2007 Symmetry greets you with a generous bouquet of blackberries, ripe dark plums, sweet spices, and pie crust. It opens boldly on the palate with layers of blackberry, cassis, dark chocolate and brown spice. This mouth-filling wine is rich, silky in texture, expansive, and quite long on the finish, and manages to be at once harmonious, powerful, and elegant. Intended to be enjoyable on release, Symmetry is destined for years of further evolution in the bottle.

2011 Brothers Cabernet Sauvignon

The 2011 vintage started off cool and damp at Brothers Ridge, but with little to no frost. With almost two inches of rain in the month of June, late rains continued until July, which generated a larger than normal canopy that required careful management. The end of the rainy season led to a cool weather pattern for most of the summer, with average-high temperatures around 80 degrees for both July and August. The heat finally returned in September, with one six day stretch of temperatures in the 90s, exactly what the vintage needed. We harvested the majority of this vintages blend from block 1, the greenstone block, on October 15th and 19th, sandwiching a picking of block 8 in between on the 18th. Average brix at harvest for all blocks was 24.6 degrees. Deep dense wine bursting with complex dark red fruits like cassis, cherry and plum with hints of tobacco followed by a round and seductive mid-palate and a long, structured finish.

2009 Alexander's Crown

The 2009 vintage started off with a dry early spring, which produced small clusters, mall berries, and less canopy overall. The rest of spring was mild enough to ward off frost this year, and vines affected from the previous year seemed to rebound. The main growing season was cool to warm and without incident, and we harvested all of Block 1 on the morning of October 5th.
