2012 MERLOT Pépé - SONOMA VALLEY, CAVEDALE VINEYARDS
This wine is named after Yannick’s grandfather, Pépé, because Merlot is his favorite variety. Pépé used to make 5 to 6 barrels of Merlot every year in his garage and shared it with all the family. Pépé grapes come from the organically farmed Cavedale Vineyards located on the western slopes of Mount Veeder at 2000’ elevation in the Moon Mountain District of Sonoma.

2012 CHARDONNAY Milady - MOUNT VEEDER, NAPA VALLEY
Our Milady 2012 is a beautiful and hedonistic expression of Mount Veeder Chardonnay. It reveals a charming, and complex nose with subtle aromas of honey suckle, quince jam, hazelnut, lychee and crème brûlée. On the palate, it offers finesse and balanced acidity. The wine is textured and creamy from its aging on lees. Milady 2012 is a harmonious beauty that represents the quintessence of Mount Veeder fruit combined with Yannick's burgundian approach to Chardonnay winemaking.
  $42.00
2013 ROSE - RUSSIAN RIVER VALLEY
One of a kind! First ever dry “Rosé of Tannat” made in the US. Yannick made this dry, low alcohol Rosé the same way he learned to make delicious Rosé in the South-West of France. This Rosé shows a pristine and beautiful “salmon” color. The nose is bright, delicate and expresses notes of fresh raspberry, pink grapefruit and watermelon. The mouth feel is very refreshing and mouthwatering. Medium body with balanced texture and the juicy fruits linger in the mouth for a long time. Just the perfect companion for summer and for food courses like: grilled fish, fresh pizzas, fish tacos or cold pasta salads. Rosé’s fans, you will not get enough of that Rosé.
2012 TANNAT -  RUSSIAN VALLEY
Tannat’s roots reach through the same French countryside as Yannick’s. As one of the Southwest of France’s hallmark red beauties, it hails from the Madiran region near the Pyrénées mountains.
