This Chardonnay was barrel fermented and sur lie aged for 22 months to establish the weight of the wine. It has the ability to age for some time due to its acidity and structure. Hints of green apple and citrus are on the nose with a crisp palette that finishes long. Truly a food wine, but not to be discouraged drinking by itself. Enjoy with company and good times.
Quenneville Chardonnay is most likely the most consistent wine we make here at Byington. Year after year it amazes me with its same green apple and citrus nose with that hint of vanilla and caramel from the French Oak.
Yep, its back. I welcome you to the new installment of Liage! That great spring and summer sipper that grabs your attention and lets you settle in. The wine is 80% Sauvignon Blanc and 20% Viognier making a very good wine.
This is a new wine for us at Byington, full of fresh passion fruit and peaches in the aroma. There is also a slight hint of the clean grassy aroma that we all expect from these wonderful varietals.
This Blanc has produced a crisp, dry, and refreshing wine. Its aroma is outstanding with smells ranging from citrus, jasmine and tropical fruit flavors. When the wine enters your mouth you feel a rush of cool refreshing flavor explosion, full of flavors ranging from melon to red raspberry
The wine shows great depth in the aroma with 30% new French Oak aiding the caramel and vanilla notes which accent the earthen style of Santa Cruz Mountain wines. Once you have the wine on your palate you will be pleasantly surprised to find how subtle and soft it feels. Very velvety and yet still crisp as the wine finishes, carrying all the different flavors along with it.
This wine was entered into the 2014 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition and won a well-deserved silver medal. It has been aged in 50% new French oak, which shows elegantly, and aged 18 months before bottling. Notice dark cherries and plums on the nose with creamy vanilla caramel; think crème brûlée. We craft this wine using hand-picked fruit, gentle punch downs during fermentation and a complete desire for Pinot Noir.
Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc, what a wonderful blend! Alliage is missing very few of the total varietals that make up a true Bordeaux blend.
This wine was entered into the 2014 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition and won a well-deserved Silver Medal. A hot year with high sugars created this wine which has a hint of residual sugar which balances out nicely the gritty tannins often produced from this fruit.Wild summer sagebrush and a kiss of good old American Oak vanilla exists on the nose of the wine, and a very silky thick texture on the palate and finishes with a slight grind of tannin offering proof we can keep this one ageing.
Bates Ranch is always one of those vineyards last to get ripe, but 2007 was a good year. Fermentation was not a problem, and we were able to get the wine dry. There is a perception of sweetness to the wine, but that is due to the fruitiness of the wine.
Early rain in October and near freezing temperatures rapidly approaching forced an early pick this year. But, hold on, the wine has aged into a beautifully constructed wine. There is an elegant nutty vanilla oak and dark cherry on the nose, with a hint of Hazelnut. The taste has no match for previous vintages of Cerro Prieto.
As the label states of the flavor profile, full of Black Cherry and Sage with a touch of Cinnamon. The grapes are always a bountiful splendor, if anyone has had the luxury of being in a Zinfandel Vineyard than you know what I speak of.
The aroma has intriguing spices of nutmeg and cinnamon, with a slight touch of vanilla. The palate is velvety and thick, allowing the dense berry fruit to shine through. The acidity cleanses the palate only allowing the smoky long finish to show.
This wine is a proprietor name, in French meaning Red. The wine has aged beautifully in American oak with a small percentage of French, which has given it a complex palate. Delve into its complexity, its blended qualities and its presence.
Our version of Port wine is full of lovely sweet, lush fruit with a clean, dry finish. Pairs well with a cheese platter or any rich dessert.
