2016 Duet - Sonoma County - Philip Staley Vineyards & Winery

Duet is a California version of a Graves style Bordeaux Blanc, a blend of Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc. Philip first made this wine in the mid-80s when it quickly developed a cult following. The heart and soul of the wine are the two wonderful vineyards from which it is sourced: Richard Rued's small Semillon vineyards in Dry Creek, and Kent Richie's Poplar Vineyard on the Russian River. Contracts for both vineyards had remained with Philip's previous winery when he left, but he told both growers that if their grapes ever became available, he dearly wanted to work with them again. They did, and Duet was reborn.

The nose is full of aromas of melon, pear, and ripe fig with the characteristic grassiness of the Sauvignon Blanc. This light, crisp wine is exceptionally refreshing and also the perfect foil for seafood, especially oysters. It drinks beautifully now, but will gain complexity over the next two to three years.

2014 Grenache - Russian River Valley - Philip Staley Vineyards & Winery

Just Released!

This succulent wine is a product of meticulous work in the vineyard where each year Philip Staley thins half the crop, assuring a low yield of 3.5 tons per acre. At the winery, he has tailored a special regimen for the Grenache, including a cold soak of whole clusters and whole berries prior to fermentation. This Grenache has broad, inviting aromas suggesting rose petals and black pepper. Red fruit cranberry and strawberry flavors are fresh and forward.

Staley's 1997 vintage was the first Grenache to win a gold medal in a major competition in California. Grenache is a versatile wine to be enjoyed in place of a Pinot Noir, and makes a perfect wine for Easter or Thanksgiving!
