PESTONI FAMILY ESTATE SAUVIGNON BLANC

PESTONI RANCH

RUTHERFORD

2017 NAPA VALLEY

Vineyard Notes:

Located on the western side of the valley floor in Rutherford, the Pestoni Ranch was planted by Henry and Lena Pestoni in 1923. Today, this same vineyard is planted with Sauvignon Blanc Musque and 317 Clones. This vineyard produces grapes with wonderful fruit intensity, ideal acidity and attractive mineral character which represent the true characteristics of the varietal.

Winemaker´s Notes:

Our 2017 Sauvignon Blanc is reminiscent of summer with unrelenting aromas of orange blossoms, sweet ripe tropical fruits and stone fruit. Mouthwatering acidity on the palate is balanced by layers of juicy pineapple, mango, peach and lemon curd which leisurely linger into the long finish.

PESTONI FAMILY ROSÉ

2017 Rosé

Rutherford, Napa Valley

Vineyard Notes:

From Sangiovese and Merlot grapes grown on our Rutherford estate, our Rosé is made in the saignée method by "bleeding" juice from tanks prior to fermentation. The juice is inoculated and fermented to dryness in small oak barrels. Prior to bottling, the wine received minimal filtration and fining to preserve the fresh fruit flavors these vineyards are known for.

Winemaker´s Notes:

This dry Rosé explodes with floral fragrance in the glass. Refreshing aromas of roses and honeysuckles blend seamlessly with fresh fruit notes of yellow peach and strawberry. Mouth quenching acidity is balanced by ripe orange and juicy peach. Pair this Rosé with raw oysters, Moroccan couscous, or a hot day!

PESTONI FAMILY 1892 FIELD BLEND

2015 Lake County

Vineyard Notes:

The first wines that our family produced in the Napa Valley were known as field blends. Field blends were traditionally single-vineyard wines with multiple varieties of grapes grown, harvested, and fermented together. Our 1892 Field Blend pays homage to this early California winemaking tradition.


Our heritage vineyard in Lake County is planted in Petite Sirah and four of the oldest pre-prohibition clones of Zinfandel in California: Deaver, Dupratt, Nova and our family’s Domingos selection. Sited at an altitude of 2,100 ft., this vineyard is located on some of the youngest red volcanic soils in the continental United States. We harvest and co-ferment these unique clones of Zinfandel together. Petite Sirah and Cabernet Sauvignon are added for additional depth and complexity. 1892 Field Blend stands in testament to the best examples of red wine in this emerging appellation.

Winemaker´s Notes:

Fragrant aromas of ripe, black fruit and sweet berry pie fill the glass, highlighting the predominant Zinfandel fruit in this enjoyable blend. Cabernet Sauvignon adds a savory richness to the palate, and the touch of French oak imparts soft vanilla notes and a warm spiciness. The addition of Petite Sirah rounds out this balanced red wine by adding a little density and silky texture. Enjoy with your favorite sweet and spicy BBQ recipes, or even a homemade pizza on your grill!

PESTONI FAMILY ESTATE SANGIOVESE

RUTHERFORD ESTATE VINEYARD

RUTHERFORD

2016 NAPA VALLEY

Vineyard Notes:

This extraordinary wine started out as an experiment but has now become an institution. When we went to plant this vineyard in front of our winery we noticed that the soil held some truly unique properties, properties that we felt might be well suited for a Sangiovese.  We chose clones 2 and 4 and waited….On our first tasting we knew we were right.  The “Rutherford dust” had worked its magic on this Italian varietal. 


What small amount isn’t snapped up by our wine club is made available only here and in our tasting room. 

Winemaker´s Notes:

Our 2016 Sangiovese opens with aromas of delicate floral strawberry, tart cherry, and tobacco. On the palate: cranberry, cherries, and clove-spice are accompanied by subtle hints of tomato and mocha which lend to the silky mouthfeel of this medium bodied wine. Our 100 percent Sangiovese showcases the classic of flavors bright but juicy red fruit with structured tannins polished by 18 months of barrel aging. Savory from start to finish.

RUTHERFORD GROVE ESTATE PETITE SIRAH

SPRING CREEK VINEYARD, ST. HELENA

2014 NAPA VALLEY

Vineyard Notes:

Our Petite Sirah was made in much the same style as the previous vintages producing a luscious, fruit forward, delicious wine from Spring Creek Vineyard, located in the St. Helena appellation. 


The vineyard is on the west side of the Valley floor and benefits from copious direct sunlight during the growing season as well as cool breezes in the afternoon, a perfect situation for Petite Sirah.

Winemaker´s Notes:

Exhibiting a vibrant deep purple color, this wine offers the balanced complexity and structure only a Spring Creek Petite Sirah can offer, with classic earthiness and depth. A layering of bold dense black plum and boysenberry are balanced by a relaxed blend of black pepper and potpourri which combine with moderately ripe tannins for a silky finish. Approachable, lush and creamy, pair this full-bodied, sweetly oaked Petite Sirah with anything rich and smoky; from grilled pork to Portobello mushrooms.
