2016 Chenin Blanc, Clarksburg - Black Bart Cuvee - Dashe Cellars
The 2016 vintage featured warm and dry conditions, perfect for even ripening of these young grapes. We picked the grapes at an ideal ripeness for a balance of acid and mature flavors and pressed the grapes to a concrete fermenter immediately on arrival at the winery. As is our style, we fermented the grapes on the native yeasts found on the grape skins. After a slow, 4 week fermentation we finally were able to reach dryness and we prepared the wine for bottling, to keep the freshness and liveliness of the wine intact. It has rapidly become a staff favorite, and we now look forward to many years of producing Chenin Blanc at the winery.

2016 Dry Riesling, McFadden Farms Potter Valley - Dashe Cellars

The 2065 vintage was the earliest harvest on record, we were able to pick the fruit at the most optimum time, producing grapes with balance and great acidity. We picked the fruit early in the morning, to keep it cold, and then gently pressed it in our Italian grape press for almost three hours in order to intensify the fruit flavors without extracting any harsh seed tannin.

After pressing, the juice was allowed to settle prior to being racked into a small stainless steel tank. We bottled the wine in mid February after aging it in stainless steel tanks and having it remain on its yeast throughout the entire process. The resulting wine shows a complexity, a beautiful aroma, and a depth of flavor that makes it one of the best we have ever produced.

2016 Dry Rose of Barbara, Dry Creek Valley - Dashe Cellars
HISTORY There is no greater joy than a sipping cool, crisp pale rose on a warm day. The lovely complex flavors of the wine, the crisp acidity balancing the round texture of the wine, and at the end, the clean, lovely, fruity finish of the wine. We love roses and have for many years since we first tasted a crisp, dry rose in the south of France, at a restaurant overlooking the Mediterranean Sea, over 25 years ago. This is the first year that we have made a rose based on the Barbera varietal a grape made famous in Italy but becoming quite popular in the United States as well and it is also the first year that we dedicated a block of grapes exclusively for rose and pressed it as a rose. We found a great vineyard in the Clarksburg appellation, where the hot days are mitigated by the cool breeze and fog rolling in from the San Francisco Bay. The resulting pale salmon color, beautiful aromatics, and lovely texture of this wine just speak to us of Summer picnics and BBQs. PRODUCTION Since these grapes were picked exclusively for rose, we were able to pick early to preserve acidity, and immediately load the grapes into our membrane press. Pressing roses on their own rather than bleeding the rose from a tank of red grapes is a way to make the finest, most subtle roses. We fermented the wine on its native yeast, to obtain a distinctive wine that reflects its vineyard terroir. The wine was fermented to dryness in stainless steel and was quickly bottled in February to keep its freshness.

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.
